Inside Your Matchday Programme: Reading

We promote the vital work done by Kick It Out this weekend

22 November 2019

Here's a look at this weekend's programme as we face The Royals at Griffin Park, celebrate Kick It Out, and go back to 1976 for our front cover.

In Profile, Marcus Gayle: We celebrate the Reggae Boy, star at Wimbledon, who enjoyed two spells with Brentford.

"I left school donkey-blinkered about my dream, which was to play here, to the detriment of my education – I didn’t even go back for my results. Even today, I don’t know how good or bad I’ve done!"

From the Field, Pontus Jansson: The captain gives his preview of the game, and also looks back on the international break.

"Group F was a tough one, with sides like Spain and Romania in there, so to finish second was good."

Rob Jex's Stat Attack: This weekend, a look at discipline and dismissals down the years at Griffin Park.

Nick Bruzon writes Park Life: "To be fair, he can sing. Very well indeed. But that shouldn’t come as any surprise. We all know his determination, his enthusiasm, his passion."

The Last Word from Ben Burgess: "I’ve seen it happen in training countless times, I’ve even seen a full-blown fight at half-time."


Also Inside: Nathan Shepperd talks to Ben Strange about Brentford B, Dan Long brings you the story of The Royals' season, Thomas Frank welcomes you to Griffin Park in From the Dugout, and David Lane updates us on his Harry Curtis book.
