Reading Football Club (i/ˈrɛdɪŋ/ RED-ing) is a professional association football club based in Reading, Berkshire, England. The team play in the Championship, the second tier of English football.
“Right, cool heads, lads,” says Matt Dony. “Take it to the corner, wind the clock down. It’s only 47 minutes...”
The club holds the record for the number of successive league wins at the start of a season, with a total of 13 wins at the start of the 1985–86 Third Division campaign and also the record for the number of points gained in the professional league season with 106 points in the 2005–06 Football League Championship campaign. Reading then finished eighth in the 2006–07 Premier League, their first ever season as a top flight club.
The club played at Reading Recreation Ground until 1878, before moving on to Reading Cricket Ground (1878–1882), Coley Park (1882–1889) and Caversham Cricket Ground (1889–1896).
80 min: Jonny Williams suddenly bursts through a gap in the England midfield and decides to go for goal from 25 yards. His rising shot rises too high.
66 min: Sturridge blooters another shot over from long range. “As an Everton fan I will benevolently admit that Hodgson was right to choose Walker over Hibbert at right back,” says Duncan Smith. “Though Hibbert was obviously a bigger goal threat.”
England have had 70% possession. In a way, they’re just like Spain.
73 min: Marcus Rashford replaces Adam Lallana. England have three strikers on the pitch. Four if you count Wayne Rooney.
Reading F.C. Directors: Sir John Madejski, Sasima Srivikorn, Narin Niruttinanon, Sumrith Thanakarnjanasuth, Nigel Howe, Ian Wood-Smith, Taweesuk Srisumrid, Theekharoj Piamphongsarn
"I wasn't loaned out to lesser clubs at the start of my career as so many of the young British players are now because of the size of their squads.

"It probably would have been the same for Robbie Fowler, Andy Cole and Michael Owen.
44 min: Still, that was some good swearing from Joe Hart in the tunnel before kick-off.
I know the kids will love this quiz, but I sure would like the answersif only to play referee. (I am hopeless on football quizzes!)
The former Norwich, Blackburn and Chelsea striker thinks if he was a youngster now, he might not have made the grade.
Boos from the England fans, cheers from the Welsh contingent. Wales lead thanks to Gareth Bale, who’s done it again with a free-kick, and they are 45 minutes away from booking their place in the last 16. As for England, they’re staring embarrassment in the face now.
58 min: Only one team are going to win it now.
52 min: Daniel Sturridge blooters a shot miles over from 30 yards. Selfish.

The town was home to a motorcycle speedway team, Reading Racers. Speedway came to Reading in 1968 at Tilehurst Stadium, until the team moved to Smallmead Stadium in Whitley, which was demolished at the end of 2008. The team is inactive pending the building of a new stadium, which was once hoped to be completed in 2012.

45 min+1: There will be one minute of added time.
In 1908, the club's annual general meeting proposed moving to a new ground near Reading railway station. A board meeting the following year decided that the move would not be possible, as "there was no chance of a move to the ground near to the GWR railway stations due to the actions of the Great Western Railway".
The quiz is a bit dated (over 10 years old) - it would be super if it could be brought up to date!
85 min: Wales have five more minutes to hold out. A point here will leave them on the brink of qualification for the last 16.
Writing in Heat said: "The win-at-all-costs, short-term attitude typified by the Premier League cannot and will not help the development of English coaches and players.
Reading hold the record for the number of successive league wins at the start of a season, with a total of 13 wins at the start of the 1985–86 Third Division campaign and also the record for the number of points gained in a professional league season with 106 points in the 2005–06 Football League Championship campaign. Reading finished champions of their division on both of these occasions.

Thank you! I've just been looking for smth of this kind!
Can it be classified as a sucker punch if you suspect it was part of the Welsh plan? Sit back, harass England, rattle them, trust Bale.
