Good news from my son
« on: 05 February 2014, 07:38:17 AM »
My boy who's 9 was scouted by Reading FC yesterday and invited to train at their Academy. Chuffed to bits doesn't come close. Proud of him and really pleased for him  :D :D

Well done, it's strange how you seem to get more emotional about your children's successes than your  own. I also seem to worry more about them than I do about myself?. Or is it just me?

Good for him you must be really proud. Two of my nephews played for reading youth teams but never really made the big time. One still plays semi pro.

No head butts.....its meant to be light contact and the woose was complaining I was being too aggressive.....FFS its a competition and the old adrenalin takes over.....anyway he should have been blocking....for a Full England Internationalist he was a typical southern softie.

As a Reading season ticket holder, I hope to see him playing for the first team in about 15 years of so!  :D
Reading academy has a habit of producing excellent talent, so it seems a good place to be learning the game!

Cheers for all the comments fellas, appreciated - can you believe i'm still buzzing!!


Taking him to the game on Saturday (pre-booked) so he was double chuffed when tickets arrived - you can't beat seeing your kids happy!!

It's true we take more pride in our childrens' successes than our own  --  seems to be the natural thing pride in offspring!
This is as young as you're ever going to be!

Just seen this, I dont visit very much these days. I remember when my son at 9 got into an academy. I was so proud too. Seven years later and over £20k in petrol, running him to training and games all over the country he has just got a scholarship. Ok its cost a bundle, but Im even more proud now. Hopefully now I will only have to drive to the games he plays. Bit more time for the bikes now.

Look on the bright side he'll be able to drive himself soon...you'll just need to provide the car the insurance and the fuel. Lol

My grandson plays for Blackburn Rovers and even got to play against Barcelona, he loves it and all the good things it teaches him.
I just hope he can keep it up and maybe one day look after us : :lol
