Plus, the 'Brian Out' boo boys have shut the fuck up for the moment, which is a bonus.
One loss, two draws and four wins from the last seven league games.
I am delighted to be a Reading fan at the moment: we will stay up or go down with dignity and are winning a lot of friends and admirers in the process. Long may that last.
The last bit of that is key. Neutrals want QPR to go down, many would be pleased to see Reading stay up.
I like that there is a little bit of depth in the team now - a few options, a bit of experience to go with some of the youngsters. Four strikers for example. A keeper who has rediscovered his confidence and high quality performances from last year. And a defence that is a vast improvement from the shambles of the first half of the season. Long may it continue.
