'Without you we are nothing'Reading Football Club would like to pass on our sincere thanks to the supporters who backed us at Wembley this weekend.
As marvellous as our players were on the pitch, you the fans matched them every step of the way and deserve so much credit. Despite the result, it is truly a day that nobody connected to the club will ever forget.
Looking back on the day as a whole, first of all the rendition of Sweet Caroline before kick off was a joy to behold. The Club have longed for a song to call our own, you have taken this into your hearts and long may it continue.
Then the t-shirt mosaic throughout the game looked absolutely incredible, and a global audience saw Reading fans together as one.
Your backing for every single one of our players will live long in the memory - but in particular your unequivocal support for Adam Federici during and after the game is a true mark of class.
We know you took great pride in the team this weekend, and after a marvellous performance everyone has real hope for the future. We all hope this is the beginning of something special under Steve Clarke's leadership.
In front of the eyes of the world, just like the players and staff, you the fans did Reading Football Club proud.
Without you we are nothing.
