Man Utd v Reading

Postby Conner99 » Tue Mar 12, 2013 9:25 pm

Man Utd won their last Premier League match 4-0 against Norwich and it will take a dramatic loss of form to enable anyone to catch them by the end of the season . Norwich were the last team to beat Man Utd in the Premier League ..a 1-0 defeat back in November ...there was to be no repeat though at Old Trafford as the league leaders showed why they are clear favourites to regain the title .


Reading lost to Everton 3-1 and it proved to be the last league game in charge for manager Brian McDermott , the man who won the January manager of the month departed after owner Anton Zingarevich felt a change was necessary after Reading had slipped to 2nd bottom in the table . Whover is put in charge they face a daunting firts few games .

oops ... :oops: yes ..what a howler ..thank you for correcting me .

It will be almost mission impossible for Reading to get anything from this game , Man Utd are not ones who will likely take it easy against you ...but it all depends on the players ..if they believe they can get a result then it may well be possible ..

So....5-1 to Man Utd is my prediction .

a little statistic from the BBC says that Reading have dropped 20pts this season from a winning position this season ..i`m not quite sure what is meant by that really ...

no ..i meant should Reading be further up the table ...have they just suffered from lapses in concentration during games ..was the manager at fault with his tactics or team selections ...has the ref cost Reading on occasion ..etc .

I don't know what would happen to Reading. I guess they will still fail to get a win at OT

What a match! I think Reading deserve a point as they made it hard for United thus the scoreline. It could have been 1-1 if Reading were awarded a penalty in the early minutes of the restart that might had changed complexion of the match.

spirited performance from Reading although pretty much every other result went against them so it will be an extremely tall order to reach safety now.

certainly no signs of the team breaking apart without Heston at the helm.

Well Reading didn't have a single shot on target in this game and Man Utd keeper De Gea could have taken the afternoon off!

I wonder what has happened to RVP as the Dutch striker has now only scored once in his last 10 matches and is suffering a goal drought?

not quite true ..I think Reading had one shot on goal ..it is a surprise that Robin Van Persie has gone from scoring at will to scoring nil , is it because of Rooney perhaps .
