Reading is a practice that has been passed down from one generation to the next, but with technology changing and people becoming more focused on school work, what will happen to reading?
The “fulham fc” is a football club that plays in the English Premier League. They are located in Fulham, London and have been around since 1879. The team has won many titles including 13 FA Cups, 3 Football League Cup trophies, 2 UEFA Europa Leagues, 1 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup trophy, and 2 UEFA Super Cups.
On the stroke of half-time, Aleksandar Mitrovic scored Fulham’s second goal from the penalty spot.
Fulham scored seven goals against Reading, with Harry Wilson scoring twice and assisting on four others, to reclaim second place in the Championship.
It was the second time this season that Marco Silva’s team have scored seven goals, replicating their triumph against Blackburn in November.
Wilson scored twice in the first half, each side of an Aleksandar Mitrovic penalty in injury time in the first half.
The second-half onslaught was completed by Kenny Tete, Neeskens Kebano, Tosin Adarabioyo, and Mitrovic, who scored his second goal.
Fulham’s first victory in six matches came after their three Christmas season matchups were postponed due to Covid-19 instances. They were in league play for the first time since a home loss by Sheffield United on 20 December.
Following their second resounding away win of the season, they moved to within a point of leaders Bournemouth with a game in hand and a far better goal difference.
Reading’s winless home record was extended to seven league games, and they remain precariously near to relegation, having won just once in their last seven league games.
It also occurred only three days after the club’s humiliating FA Cup third-round elimination to non-league Kidderminster Harriers, which added to manager Veljko Paunovic’s pressure.
Fulham is in seventh heaven once again.
After scoring Fulham’s third goal, Harry Wilson celebrates with his teammates.
When centre-back Scott Dann had to be removed due to injury in the seventh minute, his team was already on the back foot.
As a consequence, captain Josh Laurent, who was forced to play when a substitute right-back, unwittingly set up Wilson for Fulham’s opening as he attempted to ball over his own penalty area towards goalkeeper Luke Southwood.
Wilson snuck in to intercept Laurent, who seemed to be completely oblivious of his presence, and it was a straightforward finish into an almost empty net for his first goal of the night.
Reading fought back, and early replacement Mamadi Camara came close to tying the game with a brilliant backheel inside the area that Marek Rodak pushed aside for a corner.
Andy Carroll had two attempts on goal for the hosts, the first a magnificent overhead kick from Junior Hoilett’s cross and the second a well-struck half-volley from beyond the area, but both were called offside.
However, Fulham extended their advantage seconds before the interval, thus ending their offensive impetus.
Mitrovic scored his first goal with a finish into the bottom left corner after Tom Holmes was deemed to have tripped Wilson in the area.
If Fulham controlled the first half, they dominated the second half with five more goals with Wilson playing a key role.
On the hour, the Wales international tapped home Antonee Robinson’s wonderful overlapping cross from the left to make it 3-0.
Full-back Tete then set up Mitrovic’s powerful header from Wilson’s cross for Fulham’s fourth goal, and he was the supplier again two minutes later when his low pass down the six-yard line was touched in at the far post by Kebano.
They didn’t want to stop there, so they had the time and hunger to add two more.
Centre-back Adarabioyo was left unmarked to head in a Wilson corner, and Mitrovic came on the rebound after Rodrigo Muniz’s first attempt had been parried away by Southwood to bring his season total to 24 Championship goals.
Fulham became the first team since the 1895-96 season to win seven or more away games in a single season with the goal.
‘Another dreadful night’ for the Royals – response
Reading have only won twice in their last 13 games in all competitions under Veljko Paunovic.
Veljko Paunovic, Reading manager:
“It was another dreadful night in what has been a very trying month for us thus far.
“On a night when we already had a highly disturbed line-up, the early blow of losing Scott Dann to injury affected our structure and our approach.”
“However, we found it difficult to adapt after that; there was anxiousness and impatience, and we allowed an unnecessary first goal, as well as a penalty that was potentially disputed before half-time.”
“After all that, we were still having to cope with a very talented team like Fulham despite being 2-0 down at the interval under all those conditions.”
“The third goal put us out, and then the inexperience of some players in key places hurt us and made it much more difficult.”
“It’s not a matter for me to answer whether I believe I’ll be given enough time; it’s about the group and this team, and we’ve been thrust into a tough situation and given a difficult assignment through no fault of our own at this moment.”
“We’ve been thrown under the bus, but we must persevere, and I believe we can.”
“I’ve seen guys give everything for the team, and only a few months ago, this bunch put forth one of its greatest performances to defeat Fulham at their own field.”
“I believe this squad will have more amazing moments in the future, and we must take inspiration from such times.”
Marco Silva, Fulham manager:
“It was an excellent performance and a wonderful outcome for us.”
“We knew it would be vital for us to gain three points before the game, and we spoke about it in meetings, and the supporters who came out in large numbers this evening got to witness and feel a terrific performance.”
“There were some fantastic goals and individual performances on the night, and it was the ideal night for us.”
“We wanted to generate a lot of opportunities and score a lot of goals, and we accomplished that today in style.” We were considerably better in the second half than we were in the first, and despite being 2-0 up, I didn’t feel like we had complete control of the game.
“There were times in the first half when we weren’t at our best, but in the second half, we were much more focused and stronger in several key areas.”
“This season will only be exceptional if we can complete it with some success at the end, so although it’s nice to have scored seven goals twice, we know we have to keep going for the remainder of the season.”
