Cagliari 4 - 1 Lecce


Cagliari Four From Four

Manager, Chris Lewis, praised his team and in particular his new signings as Cagliari remained joint top with a 100% record so far. Young Spaniard, Jonathan Pereira scored his first goal for the club on 25mins as Bywater fumbled his effort over the line. Tomasson claimed goals either side of half time to take his tally up to four goals in four games, with Cossu (pictured) scoring in between his two efforts.

This follows the 2-0 home win on the opening day against Messina, and the 2-1 victory over Genoa days later. Last week, they recorded their biggest victory of the season so far with a 4-1 away victory against Frosinone, which they equaled at home on Saturday.

Ascoli 0 - 5 Cagliari


Twelve in two for Cagliari

Two stunning performances in a week have seen Cagliari bounce back from their first defeat in the league this season. Earlier in the week, there was a 7-0 home demolition of Treviso, which was followed up by firing five goals past a decent Ascoli side.

Tomasson (pictured) grabbed a hat-trick against Treviso in the week and a brace last night to take his season tally to eleven goals in just nine goals, which has already made him a cult hero at the club. The team have now scored 29 goals in nine games, averaging just over three a game. Manager, Chris Lewis, was unavailable for comment, but a representative stated that Lewis was trying to keep his player's feet on the ground, and that depsite the terrific start, the side were still only second in the table.

Getafe installed Sean Fitzpatrick as new manager on Wednesday, and he immediatly set about making changes at the club with 23 new players arriving already, and more set to follow over the next few days.

A 4-1 win was secured on Wednesday night, long before any new players had time to arrive at the club

Reggina 1 - 3 Cagliari


Cagliari Secure Title on Final Day

Cagliari leap-frogged Genoa on the final day of the season, after the former leaders drew 2-2 with Spezia, whereas Cagliari claimed an away victory at Reggina.

Mehmet Topuz opened the scoring on 26mins with a 20 yard effort, to give the away side a half time lead. Four minutes into the second half Karagounis capitalised on an error in the Reggina back line to double the lead, before on loan Carlos Vela claimed his tenth goal of the season with a back post header. With 70mins to go Alvarez claimed a consolation, but ears were glued to hand held radios, waiting for the Genoa result to filter through.

As the realisation hit, flares were set off in the away end, in response to Cagliari returning to Serie A at the first time of asking, thanks to new manager Chris Lewis.

Cagliari got off to a very impressive start in the season, which saw them drop just 10 points from a possible 54. However, as injuries took there toll, the side slipped to second behind Genoa as they took just 6 points from 24. Promotion was secured early, but it came to the last day to see who would claim the title, with Cagliari going on a nine game winning streak, scoring 44 goals in the process, resulting in a goal difference of +62 and a total of 108 goals. Praise in particular has been piled onto veteran Jon Dahl Tomasson who claimed 30 goals in 34 appearances.

Manager, Lewis praised his squad for their consistency when it mattered, and promised not just survival, but a push for SMFA qualification next season.

Reading FC end of season report


3 horse race for promotion

From day one of the season, Readings focus was on one of two automatic promotion places out of division 2. After finishing 5th last season and losing out on promotion in the play offs meant the Royals were hungry to return to the top flight and do it before the end of the season.

After a shakey start, where the Royals lost there first game away at Norwich and got knocked straight out of the English Shield on penalties after a goaless game against Blackpool, Reading found there feet and started a form which continued through out the season, keeping them amongst the top of the table. However they wernt alone in their new found form, Aston Villa wanted to climb straight back up and had the fire power to do it with ease and West Brom fought hard alongside Reading with the same hunger for promotion.

With Aston Villa untouchable at the top meant Reading and West Brom had to fight it out between them for second place and automatic promotion. With 2 games left both teams were on even points and met at the Madejski Stadium for what would surely be the second place decider. Reading played hard and went 2-0 up before half time, only to concede 2 back after the break, however with 73 minutes gone, Readings top scorer of the season Eren Derdiyok drilled home the winner making it 3-2 to the Royals. With West Brom losing their last game meant Reading finished the season 2nd with 80 points, 4 behind league champions Aston Villa but 6 infront of 3rd place West Brom.

Reading cant finish dream cup run

After going out in the first round of the English shield, against an under strength Blackpool side gave both the Reading players and manager something to think hard about. With an automatic place in the English cup second round, Reading were drawn away against local rivals Wycombe wanderers. Not wanting to be embaressed for a second time the Royals came out all guns blazing and smashed Wycombe 7-1, sending them through to the 3rd round, where they were drawn against the might of Chelsea. How ever the Royals made the most of the home advantage and thumped the favourites 4-1. In round 4, Reading were hoping for an easier challenge but were greeted with Tottenham away. Reading responded with a 2-1 win and a place in the quarter final away against Blackburn. After defeating both Chelsea and Tottenham Reading had the confidence to go all the way and showed this by smashing Blackburn 7-1 at Ewood park. The semi final was another day in the office for Reading who knocked Bristol city out by 2-0. So the date was set for the 5th of January for the Englsih cup final between Reading and Middlesbrough. Reading went into the game confident, too confident and were punished by Middlesbrough by 3 goals, losing the cup 3-0.

How the team performed

With Reading pushing for promotion and for the English cup made the chairman dig deep and find the funds for additions to the squad through out the season. These additions included the strength and experiance of John Mensah, Jorge Guagua, and Ryan Shawcross in defence, the leadership of Benjamin Huggel and Steven Nzonzi in midfield and the sharpness of Matty Fryatt and Neves Jeda up front.

With these additions to an already strong squad made for some impressive displays from the Royals and gave players such as Eren Derdiyok the confidence to score more than double the amount of goals he scored last season finishing top scorer in the league with 18 goals. It was the same story with Stephen Hunt and Kevin Doyle who, alongside new boy Neves Jeda all scored over 10 goals for the Royals this season. Outstanding performances from midfielders Noboa, Caceres, Eagles and loaned in Anthony Annan and defenders shorey, mina and Bikey contributed to the clubs success.


Reading golden boot winner Eren Derdiyok

Whats next

With an already strong squad the Reading manager hopes to make a few additions to his squad that will help keep his team in the top flight next season and maybe even go all the way in the cup....

Re: Gold Championship 17 - Setup News

Thought I'd introduce myself.....

My name is Tom, I've taken over Chivas de Guadalajara in the Mexican league. I'm new to SM, but I'm really excited about playing and look forward to the competition.

Would love to improve my squad, but I'm pretty tied up with transfer bans at this point. Have lots of cash to spare though, so if you need some, hit me up. B)

Reading End Of Season Review

Season 10 New Boys!

The start of season 10 saw Reading make some record breaking signings with the arrival of tough centre back Mehdi Benatia from Nuremburg for 18 million, centre forward Asamoah Gyan from Bologna for 15 million, promissing 23 year old Brazilian defender Pereira Maicon signed for 16 million from Empoli and whizz kid Gylfi Sigurdsson joined the royals from Real Betis for 12.4 million.


Round 1 (Real Betis)

Reading started their SMFA Shield campaign in Spain against Real Betis where they won the game 3 - 0 with Ivory coast star Gervinho scoring all 3 for the Royals.

Leg 2 saw a similar Reading performance dominate the Spainards at the Madejski Stadium leading to another 3 - 0 win for the Royals with Jaja, Inkoom and Tiene finding the back of the net.

Reading 6 - 0 Real Betis (on aggregate)

Round 2 (Lazio)

After an easy start to the campaign Reading were next drawn against Italian giants Lazio and started nervously in their 1st leg game in Italy going 1 -0 down after Uysal scored 17 minutes in, however Lazio took their foot off the gas and were punished for it. Jaja, Shawcross and Varela all got the better of Lazio goalkeeper Lindegaard and the game ended with the Royals winning 3 - 1.

Leg 2 was a much closer encounter at the Madejski Stadium, once again Lazio took the lead through Calderon but once again Reading responded with Jaja. Neither team could break the deadlock and the game ended 1 - 1.

Reading 4 - 2 Lazio (on aggregate)

Round 3 (Velez Sarsfield)

Reading once again started the round playing away, this time in Argentina against Velez Sarsfield. The game was high scoring but saw Reading clinch vicory winning 4 - 3 with Noboa, Cahill, Derdiyok and that man Jaja all scoring for the Berkshire club.

Leg 2 back in England was less exciting for the Argentinians as Reading won the game 2 - 0 thanks to Derdiyok and Jaja punishing the Velez goalkeeper once again.

Reading 6 - 3 Velez Sarsfield (on aggregate)

Quarter Final (Schalke)

Leg 1 of the quarter final saw Readings first loss in the shield in the away game against German side Schalke. German veteran midfielder Ernst scored 2 goals for his side with Peter Odemwingie only managing to claw 1 back for the Royals.

Leg 2 started with Reading camped back in their own half but a solid man of the match performance from Reading goalkeeper Kameni kept the Germans out and after a bombardment Schalke ran out of ideas, leaving Reading to counter. Gyan, Xavier and cattermole ran riot and gained Reading a 3 - 0 win against the odds.

Reading 4 - 2 Schalke (on aggregate)

Semi Final (Hereford)

English teams were proving themselves in Europe and the semi final saw Reading drawn against premiership rivals Hereford. Reading had won 1 and lost 1 already this season against Hereford and the manager knew this would be the hardist test of the Shield so far and knew Reading had to go out all guns blazing from the first whistle to have a chance.

Leg 1 started how the reading manager hoped with Derdiyok smashing one into the back of the net with just 7 minutes gone. However Saha got Hereford back in the game just 6 minutes later, heading in a from a corner. Derdiyok pounced again on the 20 minute mark with a mixup in the Hereford defence allowing him to smash another past the Hereford goalkeeper. The game finished 2 - 1 to Reading.

Leg 2 and everything was still to play for! Reading started with the same approach as in leg 1 with Derdiyok once again scoring early. Hereford still fought on until Reading were awarded a penalty in the 66th minute which Scott Parker smashed in, putting the game out of Herefords reach. Cahill added another for the Royals after Del Moral had scored a wonder goal for Hereford. Both teams tired and the game ended 3 - 1 to Reading.

Reading 5 - 2 Hereford (on aggregate)

FINAL (Everton)

Reading faced a strong and confident Everton team in the SMFA Shield final. The game took place on sunday the 17th of June at FC Portos home ground in Portugal.

The game started all Everton with Readings goalkeeper being pounded with shots, however Reading broke with a quick counter attack with Gervinho rounding the Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard and scoring from an acute angle, putting the Royals 1 -0 up. Everton responded just 4 minutes later with a goal from Adam Johnson. Both teams fought hard and tested the opposing goalkeepers but it was ex Everton midfielder Tim Cahill who decided the game with a great diving header at the back post in the 73rd mintue which won it from Reading!

Reading 2 - 1 Everton


TIM CAHILL with SMFA Sheild winning goal!

Other competitions

Reading may have proven themselves in Europe this season but their home form was inconsistant and only managed a 9th place finish in the league. They were knocked out of the English Shield in round 2 by Tottenham who won 6 - 3 and didnt do any better in the English Cup when they were embaressingly knocked out at home by division 4 team Rotherham United. The Reading manager knows that he needs to bring his European form home next season and prove himself and his team on home soil!

Reading Player Of The Season


Coelho Jaja was voted by fans as the player of the season with his fine European form early in the SMFA Sheild campaign and his 7 Premier League goals, 8 assists and 4 man of the match displays!

Re: Gold Championship 17 - Setup News



Reading fc were crowned SMFA Shield champions tonight for the 2nd time in 3seasons!

After a poor performance defending the Shield last season the Reading manager wanted to make his team a force in Europe again and made it his number one priority for the season.

Round 1 Reading 5 - 4 Fluminense (after 2 legs)Reading went striaght into the competition all guns blazing, travelling to Brazil to see off Fluminense 3-0 in the 1st leg thanks to goals from Matias Suarez and 2 penalties from Artis Aduriz. The 2nd leg was a different affair with Reading losing to the Brazilians 4-2 but 2 more goals from Aduriz was enough to ensure Reading won 5-4 on aggregate.

Round 2 Reading 5 - 1 Napoli (after 2 legs)

Round 2 saw Reading drawn against Italian side Napoli. Reading continued the all guns blazing approach and won the 1st leg at home 2-0 thanks to goals from Derdiyok and Hernanes. Reading went on to dominate in Italy and won 3-1 thanks to goals from Derdiyok, Gervinho and Maicon.

Round 3 Reading 5 - 1 Bordeaux (after 2 legs)

The 3rd round saw Reading travel away to France and Bordeaux for the 1st leg which they won 3-1 through goals from Hernanes, Xavier and Hangeland. A familiar story and another win for Reading at home with a 2-0 victory thanks to goals from Guarin and Varela.

Quarter Final Reading 4 - 2 Chicago Fire (after 2 legs)

With Reading reaching the quater finals relatively unchallenged posed a threat for Reading in the form of being over confident. The 1st leg of the quarter final was a sobering experience for reading as they lost 2-1 to Chicago Fire. The 2nd leg saw a complete new approach by reading with a returned hunger which paid off as the Berkshire side won the game 3-0 through goals from Matias Suarez and new boys Danny Welbeck and Alain Traore putting Reading through 4-2 on aggregate.

Semi Final Reading 8 - 5 Internazionale (after 2 legs)

The semi final saw Reading face Italian giants Internazionale. The first leg was away but Reading played like at home and won the game 4-2 with Gervinho, Derdiyok (2) and Benatia getting on the score sheet for the Royals. The 2nd leg was a close encounter at the Madejski Stadium with both teams giving their all but Reading had the edge and goals from Aogo, Jelavic and Welbeck (2) were enough to see Reading win ther game 4-3 and go through to the final 8-5 on aggregate.

The Final

Reading 3 - 1 AC Milan

After 24 minutes of what can only be called a siege, Reading broke and a great through ball from Columbian Fredy Guarin met Reading forward Asamoah Gyan who placed the ball into the back of the net putting the Royals 1-0 up to everyones supprise. Both teams pushed hard and 10 minutes later on 34 minutes came AC Milans response when Brazilian Kaka put a ball into the box for Lass Diarra to smash into the top corner putting both teams level at half time.

2nd half

The second half saw both teams make changes with Reading bring on Alain Traore, Derdiyok and Jelavic for Gervinho, Gyan and Noboa and Milan bringing on Candreva and Luuk De Jong for Angel and Damiao. The start of the second half contiued as the 1st half had finished with both teams equal in possession, shots and even throw ins. 63 minutes in and Reading finaly broke Milan down when Scott Parker puts a ball through to Alain Traore who passes the ball past the Milan keeper with ease and putting Reading back into the lead. Milan tryed everything in response but this time to no avail with the Royals holding firm all over the pitch now. 5 minutes from time saw reading seal the win when a great pass in the box from Alain Traore is taped in by Jelavic. Job done!

Re: Gold Championship 17 - Setup News

3rd Time not Lucky for Reading!

SMFA Shield winners of the last 2 seasons, Reading crashed out of the competition in the quarter finals last night after a 5-4 aggregate loss to Lyon. Reading were once again showing good form in Europe knocking out French side AS Saint-Etiene, Turkish side Besiktas and Greek side Olympiacos to reach the quarter finals, however French giants Lyon proved too much for the Berkshire club.

After a 2-2 draw at the Madejski, Reading got an early advantage in Lyon when they were awarded a penalty in the 3rd minute which Ivory Coast forward Lacina Traore put into the back of the net. It only took the French team 2 minutes to respond with a Jaroslav Plasil goal and a minute later a Mohamed Fofana goal. The wind was well and truely out of Reading's sails and they conceded again in the 29th minute to a Claudio Pizzaro goal. Nikica Jelavic managed to get one back for the Royals in the 74th minute openning the opportunity of an away goals win with just 1 more goal! But Reading failed to find the net!

Final Score Lyon 3 - 2 Reading (5-4 on aggregate)

What next?

After finishing a dissapointing 13th in the league last season, Reading currently sit 7th and play away to 8th place Everton today before a home game against Forest Green Rovers in the 3rd round of the English Cup on monday night.
