Hello, welcome to another edition of Tweets of the Week, where a 28-year-old man sits at a computer for a while and embeds a lot of tweets relating to Reading Football Club.
This week we boast about bargain signings, discover Barack Obama is a Reading fan, make a few jokes as per, and then literally explode with rage at the performance against Wigan in midweek.
I know most of us don’t want to return to the shoestring budget days of old and scouting purely in Ireland, but it did give us huge bragging rights when it worked well.
We've ordered a basic blue and white hoops Tifo display for the Sheffield United FA Cup game.— Club 1871 (@Club1871) February 20, 2020
It may backfire if C.1871 isn't as full and if organisation doesn't go well but go easy on us, it's our first time doing this but let's give it a go! #ReadingFC ⚪ pic.twitter.com/QF19klpp3w
Love this idea.
Others did not.
Mad how so many people find time to constantly tweet about 'tinpot, irrelevant Reading'. https://t.co/7MB2Cjx7pH— Sam (@1871sam) February 21, 2020
9 mile run, shower, shave, egg on toast, two coffees, joggers and hoodie on, an away win, a take away curry, match of the day and bed. Anybody’s day look better than that?! #justsaying Urzzz— Ady Williams (@willow1871) February 22, 2020
Take away the 9 mile run and that sounds perfect, Ady.
I don’t understand what’s happening in this tweet, but I thought I’d share it with you anyway... Because there’s a badly photoshopped squid on a football pitch.
Ejaria had better watch himself and buck his ideas up or this feature will have a new favourite player...
I’m a Siggy Stan and would welcome him back any day.
Particularly big kudos because of the price of away tickets.
I absolutely loved heading the ball as a kid and don’t think it’s done me any harm and I absolutely loved heading the ball as a kid https://t.co/YmhtIEN4TQ— Stretchy (@Stretchy99) February 24, 2020
‘Stretchy’ is a Reading FC fan who went hella viral this week. We should all be proud.
I haven’t got round to watching this yet but I guarantee it’s going to be fill of stories.
Leroy Lita on living with Ibrahima Sonko:— The Tilehurst End (@TheTilehurstEnd) February 25, 2020
"One day my bedroom door was open a little bit and I looked downstairs. All I could see was this black arse and I could hear a chick. I looked down and Sonko was doing his thing". https://t.co/LmGSpBsqfh
Confirmed: Barack Obama is a Reading fan.
OK. Here’s the big story of the week: how terrible we were at Wigan. Bowen comes in for huge criticism.
Bowen: “Alright brain, you don’t like me and I don’t like you, but let’s scrall 11 random players down on this team sheet and we can get back to sleepwalking towards a 16th placed finish.”— charlie (@dingcharlie_) February 26, 2020
*It’s a deal* #readingfc pic.twitter.com/gLdGXWSFCy
I left after this. If they genuinely can't be bothered to even get beyond walking pace after putting in such an embarrassing performance all evening, then there's a serious problem. Thought we were past the days of players not caring but we saw an ugly return of that tonight. https://t.co/XRnxos1vV3— Olly Allen (@OllyAllen_) February 26, 2020
Doubt it was a fan think it was our striker— Arthur Withers (@ACW52) February 27, 2020
Bowen will take a lot of criticism, and rightly so, but was seriously let down by every player that stepped on the pitch tonight. That was as bad as the worst performances under Stam and Clement - outworked and out fought.— Steve G (@SteveG1871) February 26, 2020
A massive thank you for all your tweets last night. I couldn't answer each and every one as we didn't finish broadcasting until 2240! I will try and get through a few today. On a better note, I'm spending the evening with Steve Coppell tonight. (not like that!) #nuffsaid #legend— Ady Williams (@willow1871) February 27, 2020
Ady Williams is master of the humble brag.
Not strictly football related, but thought it was enjoyable all the same.
What’s Rino up to...?
If Jimmy Kébé isn't inducted, the whole thing ceases to hold meaning for me. https://t.co/EwVfrt5nFV— HLTCO (@HLTCO) February 27, 2020
“Who’d you rather have in midfield partnering James Harper, De Bruyne or Sidwell?”
“Sidwell. Every time.”
