Opus unveiled to mark 10th anniversary of a very special seasonTen years ago, Reading Football Club were preparing for what was to be the greatest season in its history.
106 points, 99 goals scored, only 32 conceded – a club transformed, Reading revelled in a record-breaking title-winning campaign that bettered all before it in Football League history and is yet to be matched since!
To mark the tenth anniversary of a quite magnificent 2005-6 season, the club are in the process of putting together a totally unique, deluxe and entirely exclusive commemorative opus, which we envisage will help to honour a legacy left by that season’s unforgettable achievement. ‘One hundred and six’ will be the publication which that remarkable season deserves.
Inside will be the season’s secrets. The players’ voices will openly tell the story of 2005-6 in detail never before revealed and hours and hours of discussion with then manager Steve Coppell has already unlocked key elements from that fairytale campaign that have until now not been divulged.
First person accounts from that historic squad of players, the gaffer and his coaching staff as well as other key characters working at the club at the time, accompanied by the best imagery from ten years ago as well as portrait images from the here and now, ‘One hundred and six’ will be something special for fans of the football club back in 2005-6, for the Royals supporters who have followed the club since that landmark success and for the neutral football fanatic who is interested in exactly what it took to make glorious history!
Besides the opus itself, there will be a number of other collectable items included in the purchase of ‘One hundred and six’, and we also intend to produce 106 limited edition copies, made available to supporters looking to remember that incredible Championship-winning season with deluxe versions of an already premium product.
More details about ‘One hundred and six’ will be revealed throughout the summer and as the current 2015-16 season gets underway, with the official publish date expected to be set for later this year.
We’ve got the record. One hundred and six.
