There are a number of players who play or have played with Reading at Euro 2016. After each round I will be bringing the views from the fans on how the players are being viewed on the social scene, some humorous, some disparaging and some entries for next season's Eurovision Song Contest!
The editor says I can only do this until the last connection has been knocked out, so I’m hoping for a Wales v Iceland final!
So starting alphabetically….
Not the best tactics…..
I would use a non needed player (Ryan Bertrand) and tell him to 2 foot bale at the knees— Graves (@MDG_Nobby) June 13, 2016
Love for Ryan
Danny Rose is a very much poor mans Ryan Bertrand #saintsfc— Kenny (@DEVLK) June 11, 2016
Michael O'Neil's tactics seem to be questionable
You wait 30 years to be in an international tournament, and you play Chris Baird in central midfield.— Ryan Cameron (@rycmrn) June 12, 2016
I do want Northern Ireland to win this, but the fact Chris Baird is on the pitch near enough makes it a footballing impossibility. #NIR— Haden Tye (@hadentye_sj) June 12, 2016
Defense wins games so they say
Just me or did #NIR actually play 6 defenders yesterday? Plus Chris Baird, who often plays in defence haha #EURO2016— Hall (@OllieMUFCHall) June 13, 2016
As an England fan....
If we lose to a side with Robson Kanu & Simon Church in it, we deserve to go out TBH https://t.co/xz9U5iuO2K— Jamie (@persandwichman) June 15, 2016
Bale Part 1
So Gareth Bale is claiming that no England player would get into a squad that includes Simon Church. #EURO2016 #imbiting #bale— Jeremy Scott (@Jeremy_D_Scott) June 14, 2016
You know this is gonna bite him on his backside
If Simon Church scores (excluding penalties) at any point at the Euros, I'll get his name tattooed onto my arm #VivaSimonChurch— Max @ Euro 2016 (@bmthOhNo) June 13, 2016
Bale Part 2
True who on earth could be played ahead of Chris Gunter and Joe Ledley https://t.co/C25kQdJxuu— Charlie McCarthy (@cmccarthy__) June 14, 2016
First entry for Eurovision
@Chrisgunter16— Gavin Pritchard (@Gavlaa96) June 12, 2016
We're never Gunter give you up!
We're never Gunter let you down!
Joe Allen will never dessert you!

Not sure what would be more embarrassing us going out of the Euro's for violence or getting knocked out by Joe Allen and Hal Robson-Kanu— Con (@ConnorBrennan4) June 15, 2016
Never saw this at the Mad Stad

Eurovision Part 3
@R1Breakfast Please tell me you have heard this Wales song for the Euros. HAL ROBSON, HAL ROBSON KANU https://t.co/UDhNGJircp— Stephen Mitchell (@steve_mitchel1) June 14, 2016
Might be a slight over reaction
Alan Shearer was just a poor man's Hal Robson-Kanu really— Dyds Bach (@DyfanRhys) June 11, 2016
He's getting on a bit these days....

Wrigley's you reading this....(other chewing gums are available)
How Wrigley's haven't offered Shane Long a sponsorship deal yet is beyond me #IREvSWE #Euro2016— Ainee (@ainee_k) June 13, 2016
What's my name, what's my name....?
Gary Lineker just accidentally called Oliver Norwood "Olivia McNair"— The Unbelievables (@Unbelievables_) June 12, 2016
Dead ball expert(?)
Ah yes. The Oliver Norwood set piece. About 1 in every 20 comes off. If it were a pass sideways though...— Billo (@Billo20Four7) June 12, 2016
Oli, I mean, mate really?
Arkadiusz Milik tackles so hard Oliver Norwood forgets how to stand https://t.co/9xJs2ZR2rg— /r/soccer video (@redditsoccervid) June 12, 2016
A little harsh methinks

It's all a little quiet on the Quinn Front
McClean and Stephen Quinn for Walters and McCarthy please!— Niall Foley (@Folers23) June 13, 2016
He's one of our own, one of our own, he's one of our own....
Congratulations to Royals Academy graduate Gylfi Sigurdsson and #ISL on a history-making result versus #POR tonight! pic.twitter.com/hR3i23OgfM— Reading FC (@ReadingFC) June 14, 2016
Game of Thrones anyone....
@WeeMan88 I was looking at their left back at the time thinking he looked like a Wildling. Gylfi Sigurdsson could be Jamie Lannister too— Chris (@CArmband) June 14, 2016
Based on Tuesday night....
Ronaldo is just a poor man's Gylfi Sigurdsson— CR▲IG (@CraigYarnall) June 14, 2016
Pin up boy.....
Gylfi Sigurdsson is why mums go to Iceland.— Mike Merrick (@HellYeahMerrick) June 14, 2016
Gylfi Sigurdsson may have scored six in 10 during qualifying, but this Silef Gudjurdsson lad is something else #ISL https://t.co/elkkkFrovp— Henry Young (@Henryoung) June 14, 2016
So for the next two matches at least we have nine players left. It will be interesting to see the social reaction to the next game and hopefully some of our present and past players can make an impact on the tournament (for the Welsh lads that's after the England game please!)
I'll be back after the next round of games!
