Emotional Robbo in The Royal

9 November 2012

Jay, Jason, Jobi and more in Saturday's issue

Don't miss Saturday's issue of 'The Royal' and an exclusive interview with striker Jason Roberts on his meeting with the 'inspirational' Fabrice Muamba last week.

"I spoke at length with him about the incident itself, which was really tough. I couldn’t look at him, it was very emotional," Roberts tells this weekend's matchday programme. "But he spoke about it with a humour and perspective that I didn’t expect at all. It led me to admire him even more.

“He’s an inspiration to a lot of people and the more people he is around, the better. He’s a walking miracle and I hope he stays in the game because he has a story to tell."

The full interview with Roberts is in tomorrow's issue, and we also have a full-length interview with our midfield hero Jay Tabb, who talks about taking chances, his hopes to find the goal, and the players he has modelled his high-energy game on in the past.

If you haven't bought a matchday programme this season, pick up a copy of Saturday's edition and find out how much informative, entertaining and visual content you get for your money.

Almost 900 words from the manager, 800 more from the captain - and all the information you could want on today's match, including team news, previous encounters, form guides, down to the referee's previous against both teams.

Six pages of insight into our Norwich City opponents, four pages of news from the corridors of Madejski Stadium, and in-depth match reports from an extraordinary Capital One Cup game against Arsenal and a resilient point away at QPR last Sunday.

There are quizzes for young and old, a Young Royals Fanzine the new Royals supporter and tales of yesteryear for fans who have followed our fortunes for decades - and we also feature all the latest from our under-21 campaign and the up and coming starts in our Academy teams.

Copies of every 84-page perfect bound publication is available to buy at readingfcdirect.co.uk now - and back issues of this season's issues will be online throughout the season.  

And, remember, if you get every issue this season, the spines will come together to form a beautiful image of Madejski Stadium, shot during the 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest that sealed promotion last April! See a preview of how it will look here.
