#royalsreaction

19 November 2012

Fans, players, and journos respond to win

Saturday 17th November 2012 marked the Royals' first win back in the Barclays Premier League - and sparked an electrifying Royals reaction amongst the fans, on social media and in the papers.


National Newspapers

The Sun: ADAM Le FONDRE was Adam Le Fonz as he coolly stroked home the penalty which gave Reading their first Premier League win.

The Telegraph: A buoyant Reading began showing more belief and both teams looked capable of scoring, but it was the hosts who snatched the winner as Chris Gunter swung over a cross and Seamus Coleman needlessly leaned on Le Fondre as the striker attempted a header and then fell. Le Fondre picked himself up to finish from the penalty spot.



Daily Mail: It was only a matter of time before Brian McDermott's draw specialists picked up their first Premier League win.

Daily Express: Now the Royals have lost just one in seven in the top flight and McDermott added: “I said to the players at half-time ‘You’re right in this’. We had to up the tempo. We did, and deserved to win.
