Snowflake Royal Walker got close to that.

oxf*rd it, bloody Aluko wins it. Bad day in IR towers! :lol:


Are you watching it, Ian?

No, but I'm assuming even Mick and Tim can describe a penalty fairly accurately.

I may be being stupid.


Ah fair enough. I was listening on bbcrb too but was scrambling through the sports channels to see if it was being shown somewhere.

It’s a shame well now face a strong Sheff Utd with a weakened team of our own.

This. I reckon from an outside veiw a lot of fans must think Meite is better than he is.

FFS not another game in this awful and meaningless competition.

We've given both Cardiff and Blackpool plenty of chances to put us out of the bloody thing and they just wouldn't flaming take them.

Think Bowen will go for it with a full strength side. Chance for us to progress in front of a decent home crowd.

Sheffield United are trying to get into Europe ... don't think the cup will be their priority.

I think Walker and Richards will play but most of the others will be first teamers.

If we played Cardiff instead of our other league fixtures Meite would finish the season on 21 goals. Little fact for you.

I don’t think he will. He should, but noises will be made about wanting to give this team the chance they’ve earned or some shit like that.

Teams like Reading fielding their second string in this completion when there’s not a huge amount left to play for is ridiculous.

As a Reading fan tell the truth. Did you enjoy that?

Hopefully Mr Walker has had his moment now. There is no reason for Rafael to not play, we will need a good goalkeeper to keep Sheff U at bay.

By the time the Sheff Utd game comes around we'll be well out of the busy fixture period and will have had any faint hopes of the play-offs snuffed out since we're basically in win most games territory now for that to happen. Hopefully we'll be well clear of relegation so there's no reason to not play the first team.

Why do you hate the cup, sandman?

Getting to the semi final a few years back was one of the highlights of this clubs history.

3 March is late enough in the season to start resting a few players in the league and start putting the best XI out in the cup too.

By then we'll have played another 6 league games, have just 10 left and hopefully be on 45 - 50 points or even better which sees us basically safe and heading comfortably into mid-table.
