Starting across at the official site, at the bottom of their report we encounter a rare beast indeed: a scarcely-seen Reading FC Match Report exclamation mark.
You read that correctly. In an unrestrained outpouring of ecstasy, the article reads: ''It was a quite superb away performance and Reading were fully deserving of their win!'' Blimey. Though I share the author's enthusiasm wholeheartedly.
The article goes on to pull no superlative punches when it comes to describing Garath McCleary's effort on goal: ''...thundered a quite magnificent right-footed bullet...smashed an unstoppable right-footed effort into the top corner - a quite incredible strike from distance to make it 3-1 and send the away fans into raptures''. I believe Hoops described it as a thundersmack. I'll go with the traditional ''an absolute barnstormer''.
The BBC takes a more conservative view of the match, but alongside all of the trademark BBC Sport Yellow they provide us with an interesting statistic (hang on, I thought that was WhoScored.com's pièce de résistance) - Reading had won only one of their last eight league meetings at Loftus Road before this win.
That makes a 3-point haul at 'Arry's place as rare as a Reading FC Match Report exclamation mark. Or thereabouts.
But of course, the undisputed kingpin of all things statistical remains WhoScored.com, and their match report throws up a feast of numbers for us to digest (or re-digest).
In a complete reversal of last week, when he was right at the bottom of the stack with a stinker of a 4.64 rating, this week's WhoScored.com Man Of The Match is Reading's red-card-overturning enigma himself: Alex Pearce.
His match rating of 8.46 was probably contributed to by another headed goal, and a solid rearguard display. And if I were in charge of the ratings, I would give Pearcey bonus points for his celebration in front of the travelling support.
Perhaps surprisingly, former Royal Kevin Doyle (cue the ''Doyle is a Royal, la la la la OI'' chanting) registered the most shots in the game, with five. Fortunately only one resulted in a goal...and a scrappy one at that.
Piccies galore in the Mail Online match report, a ploy I have picked up upon in the past. I mean, I know a picture tells a thousand words, but it's bordering on lunacy.
There are, however, a couple of choice snaps: highlights for me include a flabbergasted Kaspars Gorkss in wake of his (now overturned) dismissal, two pairs of gritted teeth as Pearcey has an old-fasioned tug of Doyler's shirt, and G-Mac cradling his Man of the Match award.
Actually, I'd like to ask a question, if I may: is the Man of the Match award made of chocolate? It looks suspiciously like it may well be. Answers on a postcard to the usual address (alternatively, just stick them down in the comment section below).
And to wrap up for another week, a dangerously-euphoric HobNobAnyone? reflect on the game with plenty of positivity. Let's see how long it lasts, eh.
Roll on Blackburn. More of the same, please.
