READING 2 WALSALL 3

Cureton put us 1-0 up before half time in a scrappy game on a very slippery surface.They equalised in the second half.Butler put us 2-1 up in extra time but 2 goals in a minute including a bizarre own goal wrecked our dream.
All the goals were down the other end and we were probably in the quietest part of the ground.....Bugger

It all started in the car park at about noon
My mate Pete(center) flew over from the states to see this game
Snaking our way down the streets to find a decent boozer
The pubs were all thronged with Reading fans
The 6 of us in a rock n'roll disco pub
Outside the Millenium stadium
Reading fans made up 2 thirds of the crowd
Garn you Royals!!!!
I didn't know we had this many fans
Suitably lubricated we were in full cry when the teams came out
Displaying my fine new hairdo
Half time and Nick cannot leave his wiener alone, even at a football match
It all started to go horribly wrong
I'm amazed I even managed to get it together to take this picture of Wallsall celebrating their victory as we were all stunned
Thousands of disappointed fans going home
Simon who had been the most drunk, made the most noise had to come to terms not only with the defeat but the long drive home stuck in traffic
