In last week's vote we asked you whose left foot you'd pick for our perfect Reading footballer. You voted as follows....

Reading FC Greatest Left Foot

This week we take a look at whose lovely right foot you'd put on our Reading Frankenstein Monster.

Adam Le Fondre

A brilliant finisher, one of the most dangerous players you can have in the penalty area. His equaliser against Chelsea is a particular favourite.

Glen Little

TTE Assistant Editor RoyalHoops

A tricky player with a wicked delivery, it's easy to forget how exciting Little was despite his relative lack of pace for a winger. I think he had what pundits like to call a 'cultured right foot'.

TTE Podcast Co-Host Tony 'Wimb Snr' Wimbush

One of the best crossers I have ever seen.

Marek Matejovsky

Perhaps something of a mythical being these days, the playmaker scored technically brilliant goals against Liverpool and Birmingham in his time at the club.

Simon Osborn

TTE Assistant Editor WilliamOwain

Okay so I was seven/eight during his only season at the club but a quick watch of his goals on YouTube reminds you that few, if any, player has ever scored so many good goals in a Reading shirt in such a short space of time. His goal against Oldham must be one of the best goals scored in the club's history.

Gylfi Sigurdsson

TTE Assistant Editor OllyAllen

The best player that I have seen in a Reading shirt. Like Harte, he Gylfi was superb from free kicks, whilst he also had a long range cracker in his locker as well. Absolutely no surprise that he is now playing week in week out in the Premier League.

TTE Podcast Co-Host Dave 'Handbags' Harris

Capable of putting both a dead and moving ball on a sixpence.

TTE Writer Becka White

Some of those goals he scored in the 2009/2010 season for Reading and the ones he continues to score for Swansea means I believe that his right foot would contribute to the perfect Royals player.

Scott Taylor

TTE Editor Wimb

I'm going for a full-on nostalgia vote here and Scott's right-foot scored the first Reading goal my eight-year old self witnessed standing on the Tilehurst End. OK so we lost 3-1 to Oldham but that didn't matter. In fairness, Scotty did have a decent right-peg and scored his fair share of goals with it, before injury wrecked his career still in his early 30's.

That wraps up part two, next week we move on up the body to the legs you'd dream of. In the mean time, let us know your choices for right foot below.
