Shit Ground No Beer

Great Result, 3-0 away with 2 to Matty and 1 to Bellamy...all quality goals.

Due to unjuries we had a bit of a make-do midfield that included none of the new signings....bowyer, mullins, noble, matty but they were superb and as Risky said we could have had 10.

Before the game Reading sent a letter to the club saying that no standing would be strictly enforced and due to our behaviour in that regard last year, no beer would be available to away fans. I laughed out loud when I heard the fans singing 'Shit Ground, No Beer'.

Bellamy's pace gives us so many opportunities that we have not had in recent times.

Matty is really starting to grow in confidence and who's to say it is not competition for his spot that has caused his dramatic improvement? His two goals were top shelf and he could have had more.

Ashton started but looked a little off the pace, more so than against Wigan last week. But it is time under his belt that was badly needed.

I thought Carlton Cole was quite lively when he came on. Let's not forget he hasn't had much match time either...

Green's penalty save was class. To be honest he should have had a 2nd booking for the challenge and not even been there to save it but luck's a fortune. He was clearly not 100% towards the end and I think Curbs should have subbed him to be safe.

Green, McCartney, Anton, Upson, Neill, Matty, Mullins, Noble, Bowyer (Spector 81), Bellamy (LBM 90), Ashton (Cole 64). Subs Not used Wright, Gabbidon.

7 points from 12 (7 from out last 9) is a good return given the injury situation (some might say crisis!)

We now have a fortnight to work on the walking wounded...Parker should be back and both Green & Bellamy will certainly appreciate the break.

Sheffield United went down to scunthorpe, rotflmao.
