This online rant is pure overkill
Reading secured a hard fought victory over Leeds United on Saturday, winning 1-0 at Elland Road. While much of their fanbase were delighted with the result, one fan was not quite satisfied yet.
In a bizarre reaction to the win, Reading fan @thesimpsonRFC penned a sarcastic apology towards the Peacocks for ruining their evening, going on as far as to ask the FA to investigate into the conspiracy against Leeds United.
Perhaps not happy with just the 3 points from the game, this was clearly an immature attempt by an overzealous supporter who might have done more damage than good as the internet has had a hearty laugh on his cheeky Twitter stunt.
While certain over the top reactions are expected following disappointing results, this was way beyond comprehension from a footballing perspective. Perhaps, a more palpable argument would suffice next time.

West Ham United youngster Toni Martinez netted his first hat-trick of the season during the 4-2 win over Manchester United U23s yesterday.
Making a mark for himself in the youth league, the striker celebrated all his 3 goals in a peculiar fashion doing the “see no evil 🙈, hear no evil 🙉, speak no evil 🙊” emoji celebrations after each of his goals. His celebration went viral on Twitter with plenty of likes and retweets.
The young prolific striker continued his brilliant form this season and has now scored 14 goals for the youth squad this season.
With Andy Carroll suspended and lack of attacking firepower up front for the Irons, Toni’s brilliant form might just earn him a place in the 1st team sooner rather than later.

Mesut Ozil made the headlines for all the wrong reasons again after the German’s wimpish attempt to bring the ball down against Watford did not sit well with the Arsenal fans.
It was Watford’s first win at home against Arsenal since 1987, and Arsenal fans were livid with Ozil for shying away from a challenge that could have perhaps stopped Watford from scoring the winner.
Ozil has been labelled ‘soft’ before by many, including his previous manager Jose Mourinho, who even called him a ‘coward’ during a dressing room bust up at Madrid.
Arsenal legend Martin Keown has questioned Ozil’s grit after the game and even went on to predict German’s departure in the coming January window.

With probably one of his best performances in a Liverpool shirt, young English right-back Joe Gomez earned himself a place in Garth Crooks’ Premier League team of the week.
A rock-solid display at the back coupled with his exceptional presence of mind going forward against arch-rivals Manchester United on Saturday, the defender stood out against most of the players on the pitch.
In fact, many believed his performance was worthy of the MotM award.
With 6 clean sheets in 10 appearances this season, Joe Gomez is steadily starting to unravel the defensive concerns for the Merseyside team.

Andreas Pereira, on loan from Manchester United, sealed the deal for Valencia against Real Betis with an exceptional goal in the injury time last night. Valencia had almost let go a four goal cushion but eventually sneaked away with a convincing 6-3 victory.
The goal was built-up beautifully by Gonçalo Guedes, who picked the ball near his own penalty box as Durmisi could not keep control of it, and made an explicit run down the right flank all the way to the opposition box before squaring it for Pereira.
The Brazilian then showed composure to send Victor Camarasa the wrong way with a perfectly timed body feint to his left and slotted home neatly in the top right corner with a finesse strike from the edge of the box.

Davinson Sanchez has been imperious since his move from Ajax in the summer transfer window.
The Colombian was superb again as Spurs registered their first win at home this season against an underrated Bournemouth side yesterday.
A 1-0 win to shelve any lingering doubts about their inability to perform at home, fans would be relieved to have gotten that monkey off their back with the Premier League campaign getting serious.
Post match Sanchez acknowledged the relentless support from the Spurs faithful, especially when the Wembley hoodoo smeared it’s ugly head time and again.
Slowly clawing their way back to the top, the North London side can finally move on and express themselves at home, having got one over their home curse it seems.
Liverpool and Manchester United played out a goalless draw at Anfield on Saturday in a result that would have frustrated Jürgen Klopp more than it would have delighted Jose Mourinho. Both sides created few clear openings with Mohamed Salah and Romelu Lukaku guilty of missing gilt-edged opportunities.
Indubitably, both Ander Herrera and Philippe Coutinho; cult heroes for their respective clubs last season, haven’t been at their finest thus far this term.
Still the ‘Little Magician’ ran circles around United’s reigning Player of the Year in the 42nd minute when he collected the ball at the edge of the United box, dribbled past Henrikh Mkhitaryan and forced Herrera to commit to the floor, leaving him on his backside and humiliating him in the process before the Spaniard ran back and attempted a recovery block.

Leeds United suffered their 4th loss of the season yesterday as they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat against Reading in the EFL championship.
After conceding a goal in the 84th minute, Leeds fans had some hopes of a late comeback courtesy of a penalty kick conceded by Reading in the dying minutes of the match.
But a phenomenal save by the Reading keeper, shattered those hopes leading to their first home defeat of the season.
All in all a disappointing Saturday for the Leeds fans, made only a little better after this bit of display from former player Jermaine Beckford.
Now at Bury, striker Jermaine Beckford celebrated his goal against Bradford City with the famous Leeds salute showing that he still loves the club were he spent a majority of his career playing professional football.

Harry Kane is undeniably at the peak of his prowess. The English hit man has been at his lethal best this term so far having plundered 6 goals already.
Courtesy of a Christian Eriksen strike in the 47th minute, the Lilywhites finally buried their Wembley Curse with a 1-0 victory against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Despite not being on the scoresheet and having a rare off day, Harry Kane managed to show his magic as the forward sprayed out one of the passes of the season as he hit a ludicrous long-ball from near his own touchline to find Christian Eriksen.
Such accuracy under intense pressure, check out the superb pass from Kane below –
Hugo Lloris proved his worth again as the Frenchman continued his superb form when he took his place between the sticks against Bournemouth at Wembley yesterday.
The standout moment for the French skipper came in the 20th minute, when he showed his brilliant reflexes to keep Tottenham level after Eric Dier had deflected Junior Stanislas’ corner towards his own goal.
The skipper’s performance further inspired Spurs to eventually go on and win the game after Christian Eriksen scored the only goal of the match on the 47th minute. The Lilywhites would hope Lloris maintains his form in their pursuit of the top spot.
