Yo. I’m Hoops, and this is the
much-anticipated surprising return of Tweets of the Week. If you’re unfamiliar with the format, allow me to explain.
I spend a lot of my time on Twitter. I like tweets. I put them in this column and add a little commentary. You read, then go about your life as if you have not. And so on.
Anyway, enough blabbering, here are some of the best Reading-related tweets of 2020 so far.
Fair ruddy play to these guys. I can hardly walk 20 minutes round the block without needing a sit down and a Kit Kat.
This was all our faces when we were watching The Royals over the Christmas period.
If any children are reading: this is Tiger Woods and he’s amazed he’s managed to open a bottle of champagne.
Ovie Ejaria absolutely ripped apart the opposition in our New Year’s Day game against Fulham. Bowen knew it. Look at that face. The scamp.
Looks like they’re celebrating with some random pensioner from the crowd, not Charlie Adam.— Sibs (@SibsMUFC) January 1, 2020
Who, by the way, is 10 months younger than Cristiano Ronaldo. https://t.co/a0CSs6SD25
Any cheer you were feeling after a strong 2-1 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage might have been dampened by this grumpy troll.
Don’t worry about me. Water of a ducks back. Had it all my life. Do the talking on the pitch— Charlie Adam (@Charlie26Adam) January 2, 2020
Then Scottish Pirlo tweeted this and we all felt much better.
"The pictures are horrific! I was getting trolled!"@Charlie26Adam addresses THAT unfortunate picture that got Twitter talking after his goal yesterday - he blames @Chrisgunter16— BBC 5 Live Sport (@5liveSport) January 2, 2020

Prove them wrong.
Hows about this for safe-hands from @ReadingFC's Rafael Cabral...— Sporting Life Football (@SportingLifeFC) January 2, 2020
❌ Mitrovic = denied.
❌ Knockaert = denied.
❌ Decordova-Reid = denied.
The goalkeeper's heroics helped Reading to their first victory on New Year's Day since 2007!#ReadingFC #Royals pic.twitter.com/3iPkrnULop
Cabral’s heroics at Fulham earned him a shoutout on a Twitter account with a blue tick that wasn’t @ReadingFC. Check him out.
Tyler Blackett is basically Roberto Carlos 2.0.
Three years ago me and @pringle82 didn’t know each other and were stuck in the same bit of traffic on the way to a @ReadingFC game. We’re now engaged and travel up to watch #readingfc games together, it’s a small old World ⚽️ pic.twitter.com/CLkWOLlM59— Becky Collins (@BeckyCollins7) January 2, 2020
I demand Netflix make a movie out of this. Sign my petition, etc.
Why travel to Spain to watch Messi when you can travel to Reading to watch Ejaria? #readingfc— m (@micahrfc19) January 2, 2020
Not sure if Tweets of the Week or just an excuse to get a lot of Ejaria propaganda out to a wider circle...
Eamonn Dolan would be so proud. ❤
Oh mate. Don't do a Panenka when you play in League One. #readingfc— Greg Double (@Dubstep1988) January 4, 2020
Rules to doing a Panenka penalty:
- Just don’t.
You either fail and look a twit. Or succeed and look an arrogant arse.
Who’s looking forward to the Blackpool Riots of 2020? A day for the history books.
Shame the boy’s joining Wolves in January, innit?
Submitted without comment.
See previous caption for Ejaria-related tweet. ♂️
I’m not one to overreact to a couple of half decent performances, but it’s going to be such a thrill to watch this team lift the Champions League trophy at Wembley in 3 years time. #readingfc— Royal Kingsley (@Kingsley_Royal) January 1, 2020
I’ve pre-booked my tickets.
Curo’ll still be scoring goals for fun in his 50s.
His family and friends aren’t going to like spending time around Josh now he’s chosen to live life as a mute.
*xf*rd United are basically a Reading FC cast-off club now.
Interesting how many of the current Oxford team have been at Reading. Baptiste, Dickie and Fosu particularly all made at Reading, let go without ceremony and likey to make #oufc millions. pic.twitter.com/CbgHJLTOGD— George Elek (@GeorgeElek) January 8, 2020
I'm not too sure they'll make Oxford millions personally— Andrew Savory (@adsavory) January 8, 2020
For most of the players mentioned (with the exception of an aging Mackie, who was only on loan at Reading, & possibly Kelly) their ceiling is probably League 1, and millions won't be thrown around at that level #readingfc https://t.co/W0ohkM6wUn
Seven Championship clubs charging away fans more than any Premier League side.— The Athletic UK (@TheAthleticUK) January 9, 2020
The third-best attended league in Europe is in danger of being left behind as away fans are charged high prices.
More from @mjshrimper.
And more clubs need to follow suit. Sort it out, @MostOfTheChampionship.
Please don’t win it!
There is a very real curse and we could do without it, TYVM.
A’ite, I’m about done here.
Until next week.
