Reading FC Tweets Of The Week: #Bushwatch & Transfer Deadline Day

New, comments

You just know it's going to be a good Tweets of the Week when there's been a man in the bushes and a flurry of transfer activity.

After last week's fun with Kuhl's hair, this week we're getting a little too excited about the deadline day activity and a hipster in the bushes. You wouldn't get this anywhere else — it's Tweets of the Week!

We'll start with some news that made us all sadface :( a little bit: Ian Harte has retired.

Remember when we beat Portsmouth?

The BFR had quite a cult following at Reading, but he's gone. So are his BF-wages.

Join us in reminiscing about Superman.

Brentford.

Errrmmm...

Steve Clarke turned 52. He's now literally aged since he joined the Royals.

The international break is upon us. No smiles around here.

Kissy kissy.

Former Reading youngster Ryan Edwards got an opportunity to train with Manchester City. Then he met Vieira.

We might have only won once, but the STATS say we're rockin' it.

Blackman does what he wants LAD.

Transfer 'spottings' got off to a bad start.

If you know anything about Sir Dodger Royal, you know this is fairly accurate.

Next Kaka. Eh. Meh. Gerd.

Oh, but that's the tip of the iceberg. Transfer Deadline Day is upon us — and so is #Bushwatch2k15.

Thumb.

Quadruple thumb.

Beautiful.

Errmm... Hold on. What?

No, no, no...

NO.

Oh. :(

Bye Kuhl... For now.

Quick, get happy:

Right. Okay. Take a moment to compose yours—woah, calm down!

Though one Reading fan clearly isn't taken with Hector like the majority, after one emailed this football journalist:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">E-mail just received from a Reading season ticket holder on Michael Hector: &#39;He is like watching a cheese string try to play football.&#39;</p>&mdash; Daniel Storey (@danielstorey85) <a href="https://twitter.com/danielstorey85/status/638991916126863360">September 2, 2015</a></blockquote>
