The Royals have played their final home game of the 2015/16 season, thankfully. No longer do we have to put ourselves through the agony of watching football that would put a Duracell bunny to sleep.
Yet even when the football on the pitch fails to entertain, if there is one absolute truth in this world, it is that Twitter always entertains. Okay, sometimes entertains. Okay, occasionally entertains.
Let the mildly entertaining Tweets of the Week begin…
We start with The Royals' two Chelsea loanees being recalled early. And then this tweet went out.
Nath st Paul's mammoth Reading to Blackburn fundraiser started this week.
Good news! I'm in Banbury about to have lunch.— Nath St Paul (@NathStPaulBAWF) May 3, 2016
Bad news! I've had to put my knee brace on two days earlier than anticipated. #readingfc
What do we always have in Tweets of the Week? That's right, nostalgia.
This week, some pretty big news broke. Nicky Hammond has left the club. Dun dun DUNNNN.
One of the major parts of our success (along with SJM) is gone. The new era is upon us (and its not pretty) https://t.co/KE28XA8Aki— Jonny Williams (@jonnafon) April 29, 2016
There's no denying NH had an unbelievable ability to get big money for players #readingfc— Jack (@JackSymmons) April 29, 2016
Say what you like about Nicky Hammond - not many other DoFs would make a profit on Greg Halford.— The Tilehurst End (@TheTilehurstEnd) April 29, 2016
Just seen the Hammond news. There were whispers of that earlier, honestly didn't believe them though. Wow, big blow IMO. #readingfc— Charles Watts (@charles_watts) April 29, 2016
Pairoj and his team now the main dealmakers. To be fair they look to have come up trumps with Rakels. #readingfc— Charles Watts (@charles_watts) April 29, 2016
Nigel Howe to be director of football and chief exec of #readingfc?! What a load of nonsense - Hammond was right to bail— Jonny Fordham (@SunJonnyFordham) April 29, 2016
That went down well, then.
Final home game, lap of appreciation, big emotiona—oh.
Last week, we brought you Fosu's flamey flicks. Now we bring you a chant in a McDonald's. (Other greasy, fatty, fast food chains are available.)
Yes, it does.
Shows how badly we are performing on the pitch when our keepers have been player of season for past 2 years #readingfc— Johnny Hunt (@Huntyroyal) May 1, 2016
Depressing. Oh so very depressing.
Congratulations, Leicester. But…
#Readingfc fans make me laugh. Saying about our Thai owners to Leicester's. I'm going to make this as clear as possible. If we had signed— Chris Ramsell (@chris_ramsell) May 3, 2016
Vardy from the lower leagues, Mahrez and Kante from francs you'd have all been screaming a lack of ambition and you know it #Readingfc— Chris Ramsell (@chris_ramsell) May 3, 2016
Little going in hard on Arsenal.
Because of Leicester people ringing William hill for ridiculous bets like Alien invasion Tupac and Biggie duet and Arsenal winning the Prem— Glen Little (@GlenLittle07) May 3, 2016
And Kev Watson goes in hard on Cristiano.
Ronaldo's like the older boy in the playground at school. Always right, no1 is allowed 2 tackle him and selfish as you like. He's no messi!— Kevin Watson (@kevwatson74) May 4, 2016
That's your lot.
