New 'WARNING: Could Get Spanked' Label Added To Reading FC Away Tickets

The club are taking necessary precautions in the light of recent events.

New Orleans Saints v San Francisco 49ers

Following Reading's 7-1 rout at the hands of Norwich City on the weekend, The Tilehurst End sauces have learned that a new T&C is to be added to away tickets purchased by Royals' fans.

A number of supporters have called for apologies, sacrifical lambs, or (worse) their money back after taking the arduous thirty-five hour round-trip to East Anglia on Saturday, only to witness a defeat that experts have defined as 'coming'.

In response to the inevitable happening again sooner rather than later, each ticket brought to follow the Berkshire club on the road will be emblazoned with a 'WARNING: Could Get Spanked' label to ensure fans know what they're letting themselves in for.

Saturday's thumping at Carrow Road wasn't the only such loss the Royals' typically large away following has had to endure under Jaap Stam, with defeats to Fulham (5-0), Brentford (4-1), and Leeds (87-0, apparently) all contributing to an ill-feeling around the Madejski Stadium.

The Tilehurst End contacted the club for comment but no one was available. Instead, all we got was Nigel Adkins muttering: "At least Peterborough only scored six against me," as we doorstepped his Cumbrian mansion.
