After the horror show that was the last edition of Tweets of the Week, you'll be pleased to know I've been put in my place and will revert to type. Fortunately, type is fairly entertaining (well, it is for me…) and far less controversial. Which can only be a good thing.
The last 'proper' edition of Tweets of the Week was on March 2. That's over a month ago. Much like the majority of Reading fans, I just haven't felt up to it. But I'm up to it now. Or, I've been forced to be by the Editor or else he threatened to reveal my identity to the world. So here we are.
A month and five days since the last Tweets of the Week (Proper), let's play catch up!
Over a month ago, Aaron Kuhl made an observation about his game face.
Why can I not pull a normal face whilst playing football seriously I'd give Phil Jones a run for his money— Aaron Kuhl (@Aaron_Kuhl) March 4, 2016
About a month ago, young Josh Barrett made his debut.
SUB: Big congratulations to U18 @10Joshbarrett, who comes on to make a professional debut. pic.twitter.com/wpLpJirmbO— Reading FC (@ReadingFC) March 8, 2016
About a month ago, bearded hipster (no offence) JSK felt a bit of a sing song coming on.

And we'll end with a plea.
Random one - but did anyone at the game last night in Y26 find a wedding ring? It was lost while celebrating Ollie's winner. #readingfc— Charles Watts (@charles_watts) April 6, 2016
That's your lot.
Phew, that went without much controversy, didn't it?
