We just had a pie and a pint at Sweeney & Todd’s in Reading.
I may finally be turning “English”, lol

I don't think we will see Holby for a couple of weeks.
You can always record it.

I’m in.... sitting next to Blackburn sections; Reading fans look fairly docile.

Was he everything you expected Waco to be and more? They always say everything is bigger in Texas, and don't mess with Texas.

Downing assist was a beauty. Really well set up.

Rough match; rougher in my section, as two Reading fans right in front of me got the heave-ho at about 25’

Full time, 2-1 to the good. Big win at the end, Holtby getting his debut.

This would have been 2-2 last season or perhaps worse. Momentum is building now so without being too optimistic maybe we could be in for a promising season. Lets hope so. Still room for improvement with finishing teams off but overall any win away from home is an excellent performance.
