No, not a chance to rob some toilet roll from the shop. An interesting story on a footballing enigma. I never saw him against the Palace - maybe someone can enlighten us (Willo).

One of the very best players a bit like Rodney Marsh I knew Charlie Hurley( did national service at the same time) and spoke with after Reading played at Selhurst on a day when he was unplayable.

He threw it all away with his lifestyle.

Think Rod Marsh-Stan Bowles-Rachid Harkouk and that type of player mixture, a brilliant nutty box of frogs,loony genius,

There was a biography on him published about 20 years ago called The Greatest Footballer You Never Saw.

An old friend of mine (Now sadly deceased) was from the Reading area, was educated at Presentation College in the town and was a supporter of the club.He spoke very highly of Robin Friday, a player who was revered by the supporters.

He wasn’t when I saw him but as he died 12 years ago I feel quite unkind saying so.

This is what I wondered about. I suspect we must have been in the same division for a year or two and then gone up the league with Big Mal.

Looks like it was his last goal for Reading before being sold.

I used to watch him play for Hayes in the old Isthmian league in the early to mid seventies. He was a long haired cross between George Best, Rodney Marsh and Stan Bowles - an absolute sensation in non league football.

I seem to remember seeing him score for Reading against Palace at Selhurst. I thought it was a 2-3 defeat for us but it was a long, long time ago.

I have been meaning to get the book for years. Maybe now is the time as I have time to kill at home.
