All match discussion and predictions here...

Travelling to Narbeth in South Wales tomorrow so can't make the game. Looks like it's going to be horrible conditions with high winds.

think you could well do us this time! 

all the best for a good game anyway....

Cheers. Will you be playing a weakened team? I've read a couple of comments and they exact a stronger team than last time but still lots of changes.

I’m not so sure, I think your team will be much stronger this time out.  

I just hope Charlie doesn't play, I doubt he would enjoy scoring? 

Charlie Adam is shite😁

Just a shit Callum Guy.

I think it'll be half-way, a bit strengthened not not first 11 either...

A few stats here:

Reading travel here on an eight-game unbeaten run (W4, D4), and are now five in a row unbeaten on the road (W3, D2). The ‘Royals’ will be wary though, as all three away cup games they’ve played this season involved them conceding the opening goal (twice by the 30th minute), albeit they scored in all three too.
 Furthermore, the visitors travel here winless in their last six FA Cup away matches (D3, L3), failing to score in four. The Championship side do enter this game as slight favourites though, but if they win don’t expect an emphatic result – five of Reading’s last six FA Cup away victories came via a one-goal margin.


Resuming, I think think anything could happen!

Team news

Simon Grayson has confirmed new signings Grant Ward and Jordan Thorniley will be in the 18 man squad, and possibly start the match. Marc Bola is cup-tied. Jak Alnwick remains sidelined until April.

Reading are expected to make several changes to the side who played on Saturday.

Possibly a hard fought game but the extra quality of the Royals will make it Blackpool 1-2 Reading ... ? 

I reckon Charlie Adam will demand that he plays tonight. Big game for Spearing if so.

I think it will be a close game with Reading just edging it.

Adam will tear Spearing a new one if he plays. 

Adam is about 60 now
Spearing is 61.

Hopeful 😁 2-1 win for us. Especially  if a good team bonus  is on.

UTMP

Weather rough in Devon, what is like there ?

Setting the scene!



Seems so calm... supposed to be very windy tonight.

seems a slightly disappointing line-up to me...

Cheers for that Daib0.

Regarding Pool I’d have stuck with MacDonald over Husband myself...

Looks like a 4-5-1 for us? Unless 5-3-2 with Turton at centre half.

Is it full of reserve players or quite strong?


The South lads are out in force again.

Listening to the radio, I could be wrong but, it sounds like they were just singing,

Charlie Adam,

He rejected your shit.

T77 will still say the South is louder.

Sounds like a positive start.

29 - Not a great deal of quality on show so far from either side.

Charlie Adam, meanwhile, has just been given a resounding round of applause as he headed down the touchline to warm-up

How we doing ?
Just gone 1 down 
Losing 1-0. They've just scored.
Ask to soon 😳
