‘Out of his depth’, ‘Useless’ – Many Reading fans quick to criticise player following performance v Watford

Published

Reading’s chances of finishing in the play-offs took a major hit last night as they were defeated 2-0 by Watford at Vicarage Road.

The Royals were looking to leapfrog Barnsley in the table by snatching a win against the high-flying Hornets, but they were taken down thanks to two moments of class from one man in particular.

In the space of two first half minutes, Senegal international Ismaila Sarr netted a brace for Watford, further showing why he has been courted by some big Premier League clubs in the last 12 months.

Watford only had two shots on target in the game out of their 12 attempts in total, but that was all they needed to put away the play-off chasers.

Reading tried, having 17 shots with five on target but they couldn’t get past Daniel Bachmann between the Watford sticks, with the likes of George Puscas and Yakou Meite having an off night.

One player though was singled out more than most and that’s Lewis Gibson.

Are these 17 facts about Reading’s club badge true or false?

The first crest on a Reading kit first appeared in 1943.

The Everton loanee hasn’t featured much this season, playing just 10 times in the Championship before last night’s fixture, and whilst he’s a natural centre-back he can also play as a left-back.

That’s where he featured last night and he came up against Sarr – and it was a complete mismatch.

Gibson was out of position for both goals and he got a real slating from Royals fans on Twitter – check out some of the responses.
