The year may not have ended how we all wanted it to, but there were some memorable points to look back on as we keenly await the upcoming 2014/15 season.

Click here to catch up on moments TEN and NINE, and here to find out what came in at number EIGHT.



At 7...
DRAMATIC LATE JOY OVER LIVERPOOL

Reading reached the FA Youth Cup semi-finals for the first time in our history after an absolutely incredible game against Liverpool.

We won 5-4 on spot kicks, but that doesn't tell anything like the full story of an amazing match.

Reading led 2-0 thanks to Harry Cardwell's brace but were pegged back on 88 minutes, and then trailed 4-2 only to score twice in the final three minutes of extra time - left back George McLennan coming off the bench to level at the death.



We then scored all five of our penalties, with another substitute De'Jaune Taylor-Crossdale - who scored our third in extra time - stroking home the decisive spot kick to send our players, staff and supporters wild on a great evening.

It really was an incredible night, with drama, quality, sheers guts and determination, and first and foremost our youngsters are through to the last four for the first time ever - a quite remarkable achievement which deservedly comes in at number eight of our ten moments to remember.
