New man trends worldwideNew signing Pavel Pogrebnyak met his new teammates for the very first time on Wednesday afternoon, and within just a couple of hours he was trending on Twitter!
Pavel is an absolute man mountain, and the first thing the Royals will have noticed about him is his sheer physical presence.
Defender Sean Morrison - himself a giant of a man and one of the biggest players ever to play for Reading - jokingly tweeted when Pavel got on the coach to Gatwick: All the new boys on the coach! Pav is masssive! Walked on with a raw steak and swallowed it in one! Guys cray!

- Just seen #thepog eat a protein bar with the wrapper on! Guys cray!
- Just seen #thepog take a dumbbell out of his bag and do 97 curls! Guys cray!
- Just seen #thepog out on the runway towing a plane with his bare hands. Guys cray
This sparked loads of tweets from Reading fans with various #thepog facts, and it was great to see supporters interacting with players about such an exciting new signing. They were also very funny as well!
#thepog soon started to trend, which for the unitiated means it was hugely popular among Twitter users.
Twitter is fantastic for allowing fans, players and the club to become closer together, and just help add to the excitement ahead of the Barclays Premier League campaign.
