I'm more upset he didn't come to the fans after the match (that i saw). But i have no intention of giving him stick. He got unlucky.

Apparently he walked off the pitch in tears. These things happen, typical Reading that his one cock up all season happened when it did.

You and others would probably have slagged him off for not caring enough about his mistake had he come over. Shit happens bit it doesn't make it any easier to take in a situation like that. He was absolutely gutted, clearly felt he had let everyone down, and I don't blame him for wanting to get off ASAP

He visably blamed himself for the first goal as well.

I haven't slagged him off at all.

I thought the tone of the post would make it clear I'm not at all upset about the goal and so only mildly upset he didn't feel able to come over at the end. And that's not a criticism of him, he deserved to see us clap him for an otherwise top performance.

He's been excellent all season. Definitely not to blame. But then again as fans it shows our class over the likes of Arsenal. They wanted they're keepers head on a platter by the sounds of it, they blamed him for our goal yet that took an awkward deflection.

SZCZESNY ON FEDERICI AND SEMI-FINAL WIN
Wojciech Szczesny faced the media after Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final win against Reading. You can read a full transcript of his interview below:

on Federici…

He can be very proud. It only went to extra-time because the goalkeeper was magnificent. We’re very happy to go through but personally I do feel for the goalkeeper.

on Federici being distraught…

It’s a difficult moment for him. He was the best player on the pitch and in his dreams last night he was probably hoping he would get them through to the final. He did everything to do so but got very unlucky in extra-time. It was a really good performance from him and he’s shown what a good keeper he is.

on whether he felt it would be a similar afternoon to Wigan…

You know what to expect when you play Championship sides. They’re very solid defensively, they’re not scared to put their foot or head in and they defend very well. Today they did that with a great performance by their goalkeeper. It was a difficult game but we just got over the line.

Adam Federici: Reading keeper praised despite FA Cup error


BBC Sport at Wembley Stadium

Adam Federici's Wembley calamity contrasts his brilliant league season, says Reading boss Steve Clarke.
The keeper fumbled Alexis Sanchez's tame shot in extra time, as Arsenal made the FA Cup final with a 2-1 win.




"His performances in the Championship have been crucial to this club. We stick by him. We don't lose because of him. We lose as a team and we win as a team," Clarke told BBC Sport.

"This is the life of a keeper and Adam Federici is a top goalkeeper."

"We will support him, we all understand his worth to the club, no worries on that."

Clarke's side are seven points above the Championship relegation zone with four games to play but pushed Arsenal, equalising to force extra-time, before Federici played his part in the dramatic winner.

"He's been our best player this season. If it wasn't for him we'd be in the bottom three," striker Jamie Mackie told BBC Sport.


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger added: "I will tell Federici he has saved his team on many, many occasions. I don't think he should be ashamed of his performance, he played very, very well."
