The very best overreactions from the past week.

Warning: the article below is satirical, and not meant to be taken seriously.

Reading Football Club are not doing very well. When the club is not doing well, the #ReadingFC hashtag is not a friendly place to visit.

There are many stables full of high horses, a generational war and false accusations being thrown around so often that if we were to take part in a university drinking game, every Reading fan would be in the hospital having their stomach pumped.

So Tweets of the Week is going to be a little different this time. I'm not going to provide you with the 'best tweets from the past week' as I usually claim to do. No, sir (or madam), I am going to provide you with an 'Overreact-o-meter', graded from 1–5 (highest).

I realise that by doing this, I too am jumping on one of those high horses and making people aware of the fact that my opinion is the only one that counts. And that's because it is. So now you know. Ha.

It is likely you will be offended or unimpressed, but like the #ReadingFC hashtag, I DGAF.

Trigger warning: ridicule below. And bad language. And opinion.

This guy gets a 5.

That'll be because he's OUT OF FORM. 3.

Do I really have to say it? I'll say it. ZINGAREVICH. 4.

He has a point, but Warnock's the definition of asshole. Look it up. 3.

"Corpse." 2.

Him again. 5.

The same Blackman who hasn't scored since he joined Derby, who are woefully out of form? 1.

4 points from play-offs and falling fast. 4.

Going backwards under three different managers. Definitely the manager's problem. 1.

Simple fix, really. 2.


"Great" squad? I think not, pal. 1.

Oh look, emojis. Witty. 3.

Disagree? You ain't no real fan, fam. 5.

All change. Because that worked well in the summer. 3.

I've had enough now. I can't handle it. I'm at the end of my tether.At the end of the day, there's more to life than football.

There is no overreaction here, just d'awwwwwww.

If you've not had enough overreactions, you can always head to the #ReadingFC hashtag. Or, even better, #McDermottOut. I dared not tread there for too long. Scary.

Oh, and if you're outraged at what I've published here today and want to defend your #McDermottOut opinion, email

If you want someone to hate on, head to @RoyalHoops.
