TOTW: McDermott found out, Roberts the motivator, and more

Tweets of the Week. A sample of the best tweets from the past week. McDermott's being found out, apparently. And Roberts should take up the role of motivator within the club.

We're back and better than... Last week. Week two, let's have you.

From the Fulham game:

@OptaJoe: 4 - Jobi McAnuff has now made four PL assists this season, only Hazard and Mata (five) have made more. Royal.

@InfostradaLive: Reading's Mikele Leigertwood scored his 2nd #PL goal 2835 days after his first goal in 2005. He is now top scorer for Antigua&Barbuda in PL.

@TimDellor: The best half of football we've seen from Reading so far this season...their most emphatic performance

@ReadingFC: GOOOAALLL! Reading level again. This is crazy!!! Hal Robson-Kanu is wheeling away claiming it. 3-3! #readingfc

@marksugar: Poor second-half display, relieved to come away with a point#readingfc

@jesscharman: Mixed emotions after #readingfc - yes, a good spirited comeback, but a leaky defence and plenty of errors can't be ignored. #prosandcons

@Readingfanman: Utterly inevitable. McDermott slowly getting found out here I think.#readingfc

Some words of advice from a Reading fan:

@Rnutley: A point isn't amazing but it will do. Have faith as we have the spirit to turn it around. People giving up now should go away....#readingfc

And Royals starlet Lawson D'Ath is a bit behind the times after the game:

@lawsondath92: See @ReadingFC won! #buzzing good day all round!

If only things had finished at half time:

@IanM1871: CONFIRMED: Let's go with the half time league table then #readingfc

Jason Roberts takes on the role of motivator:

@JasonRoberts30: We have a special group often takes tough times to recognise it...but we will ALWAYS stick together..and believe in ourselves...

People weren't all that confident before the thrilling Arsenal encounter:

@BuckettRFC: Reason to be confident ;-) #readingfc

First half of Arsenal:

@paddypower: Reading manager Brian McDermott says that he is looking forward to the game tonight and hoping for an upset.


@piersmorgan: 0-3. #Arsenal in meltdown (again). This is getting utterly, humiliatingly, ridiculous. #IvanTheTerrible

@rioferdy5: Wow, Reading FC are not messing about here....3-0 up against Arsenal after 20mins....

@Royalrob1871: I love how @JasonRoberts30 holds the ball so effortlessly with 2 Arsenal players hanging off him #makesitlookeasy

And the second half of Arsenal...

@mjproyal: Showing why we haven't won a game or kept a clean sheet yet, come on boys!

@willow1871: 15 minutes to go... Deal or no deal??

@lawsondath92: Think @JasonRoberts30 has been sick tonight!!

@willow1871: DEAL QUICK!!!!!!!

@NabilHassan79: Late drama. 4-3 here at the Mad Stad. I think they call this a grandstand finish. #bbcfootball

@TimDellor: Roberts off, Church on - standing ovation for Roberts....

@TheTilehurstEnd: 14 goals conceded in 6 games, whatever happens tonight that just isn't acceptable I'm afraid.

‏@henrywinter: 4-4


@Brownie1871: Talk about Fergie time ... That was Wenger time :( #ReadingFC

SIGH. What about extra time, then?

@benshephard: Seriously find a tv, make a tv, whatever you have to do get in front of this game. First half of extra time Reading 4- 4 arsenal

@PepetheHorseman: Lol @ us now having to play 30 mins with Simon Church upfront #readingfc

@OptaJoe: 4 - Reading v Arsenal is the first League Cup game to be 4-4 at 90 minutes since Port Vale v Chester in August 1999. Rare.

@Wimby: Oh well at least I can go to bed ROFLeading.

@adamlloyd: Noooooooo!! Just can’t believe what I’m seeing here. From 4-0 up #readingfc are now losing 5-4 into extra time.

@shakefon: Can’t choose between “ref! Buy a new watch!” And “the cup is an unnecessary distraction”. Little help please? #readingfc

@JonnyFordham: Zingarevich - penny for your thoughts? Looked very glum just now #readingfc 4-5

@106points: We might just have become the answer to a pub quiz question. #ReadingFC

@chris_kammy: 5-5 Pog for Reading, what a game!!

@ReadingFC: GOAL! Arsenal have won it with the last kick of the game. Hammer blow. Walcott the scorer #readingfc

@FootballRamble: 7 (seven) - 5 (five)! This is the most amazing thing I have ever seen djmdkskejjejjsisiusuygacvavbananak

And then we all went to bed, sobbing.
