We’re hoping that Reading chairman John Madejski was rather drunk during the Waitrose Summer Party at the Natural History Museum (odd party, odder venue), but he certainly generated some brilliant headlines.
The Waitrose boss was manhandled by security guards after he managed to venture up onto the stage at the party while Paloma Faith was performing, apparently after a cuddle with the pop star. After being messed with be guards, Madejski attempted to explain that he had simply being trying to quieter the crowd down, who had been talking amongst themselves whilst the singer had been performing.
Now I’ve used some excuses in my time for trying to leer at women, but this just takes the biscuit. It’s unlikely that Madejski was Stone Cold Sober (That’s one for the Paloma Faith fans out there).
Both QPR and Reading were both officially relegated to the Championship after their dreadful 0-0 draw. Neither side had a golden chance to win the game, and in truth neither side deserved to in a match that lacked any discernible quality.
For QPR, it is the end of a shambolic season which saw them gamble on staying up, but come up woefully short.
So, presumably both players and manager were gutted about the dreaded drop? Well, not exactly. Harry Redknapp and Jose Bosingwa were caught laughing just seconds after relegation had been confirmed.
You might see it as a pedantic thing to point out, but it does act as something of a slap in the face for the fans who had made the trip.
Referee Mark Clattenburg suffered an embarrassing moment during yesterday’s encounter between Reading and Liverpool when he realised he had forgotten his cards.
Clattenburg forgot to bring his notepad and yellow and red cards out for the second-half of the match. He only realised he had left the items in his dressing room when he attempted to book Danny Guthrie in the 51st minute. read more »
