It isn't very clear from the official club statement but it almost sounds like a goodbye and good luck

Ah...that’s nicer

Great player
Great captain
Great spokesman for all of his clubs

I can only wish him all of the very best...brilliant RFC servant (nearly came to blows on the East Stand once upon a time, not everybody saw his contributions the same as I did)

A special mention to special captain Jobi Mcanuff retired last night at the age of 39 and over 750 appearances. an amazing career and an amazing guy. one of our best captains in recent times.

Remember him being a part of that Wimbledon team who tore us apart 0-3 on Boxing Day.

Shame we didn't have him earlier in his career as he was excellent for us.

Always thought it was a shame he didn't score what would have been one of the great FA Cup goals against Liverpool, great run and then bottled the finish.

Cor, yeah that would've been an incredible goal.

Yeh came on here to say this. But then he scored a very similar goal against Cardiff in the PO semi, albeit not quite as good.

Didn't manage to go to that game so watched it at a bar in Lincoln when I was at uni. I think I was the only Reading fan in there but I celebrated like crazy :lol:

Still haven't got over the fact I knew a guy who thought he was the worst winger we'd had for about 20 years.

Mad.

Yet when he was named Captain the majority criticised the appointment.

Nor me. Best captain we've had since Murty.

On another note. Fran Kirby is smashing it. Former Reading player, and now starts for England and Chelsea. Wouldn't mind having her start upfront with Joao.
