Good day to you, sir or madam. How was your new year? How was your return to work—eh? You don't want pleasantries? Okay then, we'll get cracking with the tweets...
We head back to 2014 when the official Reading FC account wished us a Merry Christmas. Someone read too much into it.
@TheTilehurstEnd Merry Xmas guys!— Reading FC (@ReadingFC) December 25, 2014
@ReadingFC @TheTilehurstEnd you guys!! Get a room— Joe Stevenson (@JaaBui) December 25, 2014
Meanwhile, stand-in GetReading Reading FC reporter Jon Low picked up on a couple of glaring errors in the Brighton programme.
Someone didn't tell the #bhafc programme editor who the club's boss is (or isn't)! #readingfc pic.twitter.com/7OLDbj09ja— Jonathan Low (@jonathanl50) December 26, 2014
According to the #bhafc programme, a certain Jobi McAnuff still plays for #readingfc! Who knew? pic.twitter.com/u53vjXpWZ2— Jonathan Low (@jonathanl50) December 26, 2014
And there's a reason Adkins left the club on such a positive note.
Just heard @TimDellor confirm Adkins was paid off in full with the amount totalling £850k - Zingarevich contracts hit #readingfc again— Tom (@TomProspect) December 28, 2014
Glenn Murray leaves. We get the sense Coxy's going to miss him.
Great to have been able to play with this guy. Top man and top player! @GM_83 http://t.co/YOrrvxaD1C pic.twitter.com/TO8ryoSRQN— Simon Cox (@SCoxy31Real) December 28, 2014
Team talk for Norwich? Check.
Danny Williams told @michaeljbailey that Neil Adams "losing to the likes of #readingfc " comments were put up in the dressing room yesterday— Radio210 (@Royaltypoints) December 29, 2014
On the final day of 2014, former Royals Steve Sidwell, Glen Little and Nicky Shorey reminisce about their days at the Madejski.
@GlenLittle07 @nickyshorey22 surely gotta get the ball bag game going. Roast diners on Friday = winning formula. #106 #points #feeder #darf— Steve Sidwell (@sjsidwell) December 30, 2014
@sjsidwell @GlenLittle07 hahaha. Some of us still don't know what it's like to go in the middle of a circle. Haha.— Nicky Shorey (@nickyshorey22) December 30, 2014
@ReadingFC need that footage of me and @GrahamStack1 behind @nickyshorey22 doing his interview with us 2 driving the car behind #balaclava— Steve Sidwell (@sjsidwell) December 30, 2014
Royston could be on the move. At last.
Royston Drenthe left out tonight for "personal reasons". I understand he could be set for a move to China, ending his spell at #SWFC.— Rob Staton (@robstaton) December 30, 2014
Drenthe seems to get the X Factor generation very excited. Sadly football matches last longer than a Vine...#readingfc— Radio210 (@Royaltypoints) January 2, 2015
New Year banter from the eds of TTE.
#readingfc unbeaten in 2015— The Tilehurst End (@TheTilehurstEnd) January 1, 2015
Young midfielder 'Tish' is on the move. Good news for @TalkMurtyToMe, who has been floundering with so few loans to report on this season.
Best of luck to my boy @AaronTshibola on loan and happy birthday buddy❤️— Shane Griffin (@Shane_Griff) January 2, 2015
Looking forward to this new challenge @Official_HUFC thanks again for the nice messages! Also buzzing to see my friend @RakishBingham sign— Aaron Tshibola (@AaronTshibola) January 2, 2015
Onto Huddersfield and it was indeed good to see some form of defending at last.
It's nice having a manager who realises defending is part of the game. #readingfc— Radio210 (@Royaltypoints) January 3, 2015
Danny Williams offers Hogg a kiss...I'm sure that's why he got sent off ;-) #ReadingFC URZ!! pic.twitter.com/gCOI2MLhrS— Mark Mason (@Macey1) January 3, 2015
Reading fans are despairing about Reading fans.
I COMPLETELY GIVE UP! Our fans #readingfc pic.twitter.com/KcqCOF6U2o— CamBanter (@cambaker96) January 3, 2015
Neil Adams resigned from Norwich, cue this joke on repeat on our timelines:
Neil Adams shouldn't be leaving a club like Norwich #readingfc #ncfc— Will (@will1871_) January 5, 2015
Cardiff away in the FA Cup? YES!
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Another crap draw with a team in the same division. More money saved by not going. #readingfc— Brian Davis (@BrianDavisSFG) January 5, 2015
It'll be a freezing cold Friday night and we'll probably get tonked 3-0 with Morro and Alfie both scoring #readingfc— george williamson (@TalkMurtyToMe) January 5, 2015
Just thought, we're going to be facing @A1F1E9 in the dreaded month of January. Best be on your toes @federici32 #readingfc— Charles Watts (@charles_watts) January 5, 2015
At this stage of the year it's common for us to look back with fondness on the past. Well, here's a MEGA BLAST.

My favourite tweet from the past week: Royals modelling with a Thai model.
@TheTilehurstEnd @charles_watts Looks like #ReadingFC have done some work for what I presume to be a Thai magazine pic.twitter.com/lQbQC5IWtg— Tom (@TimothyDustbin) January 7, 2015
We'll end on a sour note for one former Biscuitman: Noel Hunt has been released by Leeds United. Ouch.
Leeds United announce that they and Noel Hunt have agreed to terminate his contract. He's left the club today. #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) January 7, 2015
