The fans text in

Since Reading FC's fate was sealed by the full time whistle we've received over a 1000 texts. Below are just some of the views their have been sharing with BBC Berkshire.

SC has given us the best 2 years RFC has EVER had. Reading is unfortunately still a little club in everyone else eyes. Keep the faith. TU.

Chin up big Murts u always play with pride and passion that will get us back up to prem!  From Luke "little Murts" Wallace

_____________________

We've  let such a massive opportunity and premiership status, slip thru our fingers. We didn’t invest in proven premiership players pre-season or January. Why?

_____________________

Regardless, I have supported them for 61 years and will continue to do so. Ron G

_____________________

Steve is the most honourable manager around & he thinks that the honourable thing to do is to go. Please please stay.

_____________________

Steve please stick with us another year you are the best manager the club has ever had. You stuck with players this year, time for them to stick with you

_____________________

Guys lets be honest, we have an impassionate chairman whose first love certainly isn’t football. We have an amazing manager but unfortunately he is scared.

_____________________

The championship is a totally different challenge and any reading fan who thinks next season will be a breeze is sadly mistaken. Steve

_____________________

We have a huge amount of fickle fans who’ll now go missing. Championship football is what we deserve. Andy

_____________________

My 6 yr old daughter has just bought a tear 2 my eye. She asked why steve might leave and I told her cos we went down and she said it wasn’t their fault.

_____________________

Steve must stay he’s the best manger we’ve had. John madejski has got 2 accept most of the blame - by not givin money 2 keep us up.

_____________________

Murts as u saw yesterday we are all behind u and if we keep the current squad WE WILL GO STRAIGHT BACK UP and u have to make sure all the players know that.

_____________________

It hurts like hell, Steve must stay just remember where we where 10 years ago. Never in my dreams did I think we would play in the premiership. Thanks for that.

_____________________

I had to turn off Andrew. It’s like rubbing salt into the wounds. SC is the best, simple as that! Please stay, we need you! Jack

_____________________

Why has the Academy not produced a player good enough to play in the 1st team

_____________________. 

Remember what Boris Becker said when he was knocked out in the 1st round - "No-one died!"

_____________________

Hate to say it but I’m glad we went down. Cheaper season tickets, cheaper away days more entertaining football and a chance to win something!

Can’t help but think that if Coppell goes it could be the start of the Leeds Utd, Notts Forest free fall. Keep him in and get rid of those that gave up.

_____________________

Players want mega wages that Reading can’t afford, hence no significant new signings. Steve Coppell must stay-please! Alice from Reading.

_____________________

There is one upside. I can now get the extra season ticket for my son.

_____________________

We failed this season because Steve Coppell made mistakes in not strengthening the squads and he was let down by several playing performances. On the whole Coppell proved what a great manager and person he was. Stay loyal to the royals. You have been fantastic and we know that u can get back to the premiership.

_____________________

Only the plastic fans who weren’t here before the premiership will be gone tomorrow.

_____________________

It’s not just the players and Coppell’s fault, true fans know the blame also lies with Madejski! He must Keep Coppell, splash the cash not cut it.

_____________________

It was the hardest day of my life yesterday, I was 17 on Saturday. Respect to Murts for coming in to speak. You and Steve can get us back.  Jack

_____________________

Whether he stays or goes, Coppell is and always will be an absolute legend for what he has done for the club in the last 3 years.

_____________________

Can u ask Graham/JM how will we ever attract players to Reading? How does Bolton and Wigan get them to join? Surely Reading are a more attractive club?

_____________________

My 11 yr old son was very distraught at the final whistle . He took his framed photos of Murty, Harper and Doyle off his wall and his Reading FC duvet off his bed.

_____________________

I would like to express my disgust at the ill informed attacks on our chairman and manager. Without John and Steve we would never have got anywhere.

_____________________

We went down fighting. I will b supporting the boys next season and I am sure if we can keep the core of the team together and the manager we’ll b up!
