The mood has changed at the Mad Stad.

Reading’s defeat against top-of-the-table West Brom has left The Royals’ fans bewildered and confused about their season. A month ago, things were looking up as Bowen was fielding reserve sides in the cup to focus on reaching the play-offs; now, we’re looking back down and hoping to claim enough points to avoid relegation.

It’s a real rollercoaster of emotions. Fans need to vent. And they’re venting in the direction of one expensive and quality-avoidant Romanian.

Let us never play Cardiff again.

The official club account respond appropriately to a — let’s be honest — quite odd tweet from a Reading journo.

Where’s it all going wrong? Well, for one thing, we can’t defend.

And Sone Aluko is still playing for the club.

On the plus side, we have a nice new chant to demo when the club’s new Brazilian takes to the pitch.

Heart eyes emoji. Fire emoji. Fire emoji. Fire emoji. Eyes emoji.

Reading are struggling to score goals, but one of the players they have out on loan isn’t struggling quite as much.

It’s been a long time since The Royals have been consistently good.

Good lord, we were really punching above our weight in those peak years.

Also, Harper has hair now.

I don’t like it.

This is probably going to be the last Ejaria appreciation tweet you’ll see for a while.

Clearly the correct result.

This is where the Pele love kicks in.

Puscas is the new scapegoat for the ire of the Reading fans.

OK, one more Ejaria tweet.

A little bit of context is nice.


It was lovely to see him again.


We’ll end on a positive note. The good old days. Sigh.
