American keeper initially joined the Royals on loan under Alan Pardew and had such an impact that he was signed permanently and became the number 1 keeper during our championship winning year and Premiership years.
Captained the 2005/2006 Championship winning, and Premiership, teams.
Steve Coppell's first signing and the backbone of the defence ever since. Current club captain.
Cost £80,000 and sold for £6.5million after a number of important goals including the equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Leicester that got us promoted.
Signed in 2001 and was part of the Royals midfield right up to last summer, including a fantastic partnership with Steve Sidwell.
The other part of that midfield partnership, his excellent performances for the Royals including that first Premiership season earnt him a move to Chelsea.
As a loan striker in the 2002/03 season he almost single handidly took us to the play offs.
Another bargain signing, the left back went onto play for England whilst still at Reading.
Scored goals at Championship and Premiership level for the club. If it wasn't for injuries he could have been another to play for England.
Goals, Goals, Goals. Brentford - Enough said!
