Feel the buzz as we return to the Madejski

It's been a long time coming getting back home to the Madejski Stadium - but Saturday is just round the corner now!

Four weeks have gone by since the Royals last entertained the Madejski faithful - and it's felt like forever! But the wait is almost over as Brian McDermott readies his troops for Saturday's showdown against Fulham.

We took to our social network channels to see how you, the supporters, feel about the homecoming and what you love most about home match days - and we received an excellent response!

Here are a selection of our supporters' replies on Twitter and Facebook:


@prior85: seeing a Reading win #fortress

@austin_j_powers: love this season's pre-match video on the big screen. That gets me going every time!

@RoyalstilIdie: when you're there at that ground, it's the heart of the town, it's the atmosphere, that makes you so proud! ;)

@RoyalHeath: My favourite thing is clapping the players as they get lined by.. They deserve it! #BrillianceIsInTheSquad

@Andrew_Kelly12: the steak and ale pie, lovelyyyyyyy

@tim_rob: walking to stadium and hearing the noise build.

@oliverpritchard: got to be the chicken curry pies !!! They are so nice :)

@EdOverHeels: "Let's back the boys and MAKE-SOME-NOISE (as the clipboard flies into the air!)...COME ON URZ!!" Goose bumps every time!!


Georgia Graham: Hearing the players names being read out, as well as the 'Back the boys' announcement. But tbh the atmosphere... nothing better than having so many reading fans under one roof, willing our boys on. URZzzzz! Reading till I Die!

Kerrie Kerreth Buckley: food for a fiver (y) that's made my day!

Cheryl Mckendrick: MY manor MY town MY team! RTID

Paddy Ryan George: My seat. I like my seat.
