Nigel speaks to 'The Royal'From his days on the books of Liverpool as a youngster, to suffering the torment of a serious injury at the age of just 23 - Nigel Adkins revealed all to 'The Royal' this weekend.
Reading's boss spoke to our matchday programme about his history in the game - describing in depth his journey from Football League physio to Premier League manager!
“I understand what it’s like to be a football fan," Nigel says, in our special six page feature. "I’m passionate about football myself. I watch a lot of sport and I know how much it means to a supporter, how much they love their club. Now, I will look to give the Reading fans a club they can be proud of."
As well as that special article, the £3 edition also boasts the manager's first programme notes to the fans - as well as an interview with his right hand man Andy Crosby.
Add that to the usual array of match action, quizzes, news and stats - and it's certainly not one to be missed!
