Reading have had their fair share of players that simply haven’t hit the heights originally expected of them since arriving at the Madejski Stadium.
The Royals have had spells in both the Premier League and Championship in recent years, with the Berkshire-based side now playing their football in the second tier.
They have shown promising signs at times this season in the Championship as well, with Reading currently sat 14th in the second tier standings with nine matches remaining in this year’s campaign.

However, due to recent off-the-field events, this season has been called to an abrupt halt, with no scheduled return date being set by the relevant authorities as of yet.
Plenty of Reading fans took to social media to issue their thoughts on who they thought has been the club’s worst ever player from over the years.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
Keith Scott but a special mention to Andy Hughes aswell

A tough choice between HRK, Blackman and Akpan that one

Sone Aluko – A spectacular fall from grace whilst with us. I don’t think I’m being unfair by saying other than 2 or 3 performances he’s been woeful for us over 3 years. Personally one of the poorest work rates I’ve ever seen at the mad stad.

If including loan players Chris Martin has to be up there. And Vydra was pretty hopeless most the time.

I’ve never seen a player’s #ReadingFC career nosedive so sharply as Hope Akpan’s. Two assists against Chelsea and then just god awful ever after that

Close call for me between Bas Savage and Erica Obina Chukwunyelu.

Unpopular Opinion but I think Pogrebnyak was awful

How about Paul Brayson or Mark Reilly
