'If It's Football, It's Vital'

McDermott - 'RFC back on the map'

Brian McDermott was clearly gutted to lose Sunday's FA Cup quarter final against Aston Villa but was obviously proud of the run we have put together in this season's competition. He told the Official Site after the game,


'Our players could not have given anymore and we have gone out of the FA Cup in the right way. If your going to go out then you want to do it on the front foot, we went down fighting against a top, top side.'


He, like our supporters, admired our first half display against the Carling Cup finalist's and is sure we gave them one of their toughest games.


'Our first half performance was outstanding and we played some fantastic football. We have given them as tough a game as they will have all season.'


He finally had praise for the clubs supporters and is pleased to have put us back on the map!


'Our supporters know when the players are giving their all to try and win games. They will turn up, support, and get behind the team when they see that on the pitch. This season, together, we have put Reading Football Club back on the map.'
