Sheffield Wednesday v Reading

Post by driftwood »

Tomorrow (Saturday 4th) the Royals travel up to Sheffield with intentions to steel 3 valuable (steel....steal....Sheffield...steel.....get it?), anyways, to try and get three points off a side that haven't one a league game in their last six. If that ain't tempting fate thinking that because the Wednesday outfit haven't won in the last 6, then Reading will beat them.......... :shrug1:

Question is; will the Royals go via the M4/M1....or perhaps some may say the more 'scenic' route i.e. the M40, then pick up the M1.

Currently the table looks like this;

1 Newcastle United 18 12 3 3 39 29 10

It's the latest Championship League table Chris...........since you've been away, there's been a lot of changes in the league, Reading's been winning their matches, and Watford has had points deducted after someone complained to Watford Trading Standards because Watford FC described themselves as a 'Football Club'. Apparently the chap went to see a Watford home match at Vicarage Road and didn't see one iota of anything resembling footy :wink:

The rows of figures wouldn't space out by the way, by gum though it's good to see the Royals at the top of the league again. Brenda knew they'd come good eventualy :-)

a truly dire game for most of the 90 minutes, so thankfully some improvement for the Royals, and aparently Sheffield Wednesday couldn't even find Reading's goal using sat-nav.

So there we have it folks......Reading scores 2 goals and kept a cleaner sheet than the woman copper who resigned to earn 150 quid an hour.

I saw (lie) the game - it was riveting. I was beaming all over. Stainless. No more steel puns!

I heard the game was on a knife edge for all of 3 minutes then the Royals decided they were a cut above the rest and went and fork'd off with the 3 points.

........can't wait for the Scunthorpe game to see what we can say about them :drunk2:
