Disbelieving fans first denied that the manager would ever dare have an interest in managing another club, yet slowly they have had to come round to the fact that Pardew was prepared to do the dirty.
"I would like to thank all the fans for the support at this difficult time," said the troubled Reading Chairman.
With so much uncertainty surrounding the future of the club, Madejski has urged any disillusioned fans to keep the faith and get behind temporary boss Kevin Dillon.
Whilst Dillon is undoubtedly a competent coach, Reading's future prospects remain very clouded. In one resignation letter the club's promotion prospects have potentially been snuffed. The Royals dream of playing football in England's top division for the first time in their history has not died yet but they are certainly struggling along on a life support machine.
Rallying the fans, Madejski added: "I urge the supporters to get behind Kevin Dillon, his management team and the squad for this very important game at West Ham on Saturday."
In these difficult times, Reading MAD would like to echo John Madejski's words. It would be fantastic to see a sell out crowd for Tuesday's game against Cardiff City at the Madejski Stadium.
Alan Pardew often called for more fans to attend games yet got little response. It would be great to see a packed stadium now that he is no longer there to make the calls for bigger crowds.
