According to BBC Radio Berkshire (as on BBC Radio Devon I got only the Jackson 5), when Reading scored their fans rushed forward and managed to knock down part of the breeze block wall in front of the away end!
Someone should tell them that we don't have the budget to rebuild that stand too!
Yes - giving rise to the chant "One nil and we broke your wall" which was rubbing it in a bit.
I'm sure I heard the stewards say that nobody was injured.
I don’t really trust them not to build more houses and then not deliver the stadium and just sod off
Tremendous performance tonight.....and a thoroughly enjoyable and exciting cup tie.
Not the end of the world to get k.o'd from this comp of course, although it was a cruel way to go out.
1st time i've seen us this season (roll on the end of the cricket season ) - i was very impressed. Such a joy to see us playing with such confidence, purpose and tempo. Reading's defence and keeper were top class tonight and they needed to be!
They all played well, although stand outs for me were Zebroski, who absolutely murdered their left back, Ellis and Branston as usual and Bevan, who looks fit and imposing.
O'Kane's excellent cameo in extra time shows we have players on the bench capable of turning a game for us and Kee looks full of promise, he will dominate many a L2 defence this season.
I think Paul Buckle's comments on the O.S. perfectly sum up his pride in a very young and somewhat inexperienced forward line who tried manfully to take the game to a Championship opponent last night.
Something to put in the locker and draw good experience from, and his comments on Adam Stansfield and how he tried to sign him verify what I posted yesterday about how he very nearly became a Torquay United player whilst of course; most of us also know how he "pre-seasoned" with us during Wes Saunders' time as manager.....................not everyone (in fact no-one) is as ignorant of of the happenings at OUR football club as the person who caused all the trouble and embarrassment yesterday.
very true words merse,many people hold the mis-conception that players of opposing clubs,particularly local ones are embroiled in intense hatred and rivalry.Nothing could be further from the truth,for ninety minutes twice a season,they do battle,after that they are mostly freinds,earning a living to put food on the table for families.Quite often i have seen gulls players and grecian players out and about together as an example,so the passing of adam stansfield is hurting a lot of folk within our club,but nothing compared to how his young family are feeling.Paul Buckle remains freindly with many at exeter,the football world is mainly one big family as you know more than most merse. We can take a lot from lasts performance,especially as we are mainly a squad of pups,who can only but improve with time,PB will move on at some stage,as he is in the ascendency as a manager.Exciting times ahead of that i am convinced
what a person is told is not half as important as what they think they have been told
