We've seen football club owners and chairpersons make rallying cries and speeches before, most notably Norwich City's Delia Smith in 2005, but I don't think anyone expected Reading's very own Sasima Srivikorn to do something similar...
The Reading Chronicle's Paul Carey has tweeted this strange piece of news this afternoon:
Lady Sasima will be making a pre-match speech on Sunday and then playing a music video for her new song about #readingfc.— Paul Carey (@PaulCareySport) August 13, 2015
She has co-written the song and was visibly excited by having it played on Sunday, adding that she hopes the #readingfc fans will join in.— Paul Carey (@PaulCareySport) August 13, 2015
Lady Sasima played it on her MacBook and I told her it was a catchy number but I don't think it'll grab the imagination of football fans.— Paul Carey (@PaulCareySport) August 13, 2015
Since being part of the Thai Consortium that took over the club last summer, Sasima, like all of the owners has remained relatively silent apart from giving a few initial interviews.
However, the 77 year old was educated at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, so maybe it's not much of a surprise that she is releasing a song. It is worth saying though, that there has been no official comment or statement from the club on the news.
Paul Carey also reports that there will be a free can of Carabao, the Thai energy drink that sponsor the Royals' home shirts, on offer for everyone at the Madjeski Stadium on Sunday for the game against Leeds United.
The song, entitled They Call Us the Royals, includes lyrics such as '"We're fighting the butterflies tonight" and "Unstoppably we burn within".
