Obita Scoops Double In End Of Season Vote

Last year Alex McCarthy earned player of the season for a string of superb goalkeeping displays that earnt him a call-up into the England squad. McCarthy was second placed in the most improved player award where Hal Robson-Kanu quite rightly grabbed top spot. This time around it all belonged to Jordan Obita. Obita not only broke into the first team and held down a regular starting place to earn himself the award for most improved player, but he also went on to the look the best player on the pitch. Obita was regularly awarded man of the match in the second half of the season and quite rightly picked up the player of the season award too.

Obita had such a good season that he finished it off with appearances, and a goal, for the England Under-21s. He is regularly subject to transfer rumour and it seems that his days at the Madejski Stadium are limited. Now that the club is back under the charge, and near total ownership, of Chairman Sir John Madejski the club are set to cash in. Madejski has seen his fortune dwindle and still can't find someone to take the club off his hands meaning any reasonable offer will be accepted as the club attempt to settle some debts.

In other categories, the 3-1 away win at QPR was seen as the best performance of the season and the 1-3 home defeat to bottom of the table Barnsley was voted the worst. Despite players leaving, and no sign on anyone coming in to replace them, Reading fans are still confident of a midtable finish.
