Now deep into injury time
Reading win 2-1
Just finished watching the extended highlights (13 minutes, not bad) and MH played a great game, stopping two very dangerous shots. Got caught in no man's land with no chance on the goal, but made up for it. Two games in five days where he's really been top drawer, as he pulled off a couple wonder saves against west ham, I thought.
I remember watching Marcus play when he was with the Seattle Sounders
Can someone refresh my memory as to how Marcus got his work permit in the UK?
oviously its not caps that got him there, he must have another passport then american maybe his parents from there ? ...
anyway i was wondering what are Readings chances this year to make it to the Premiership ? thinking 4 yank goalies next season in the Pship
He holds a German passport IIRC.
Marcus is eligible for a German passport through his parents.
As for promotion chances, they are pretty good but they are no means a lock. Through seven games they have 14 points, which ties them for fifth place. They are one point from third place and two points from being tied for first.
With six teams separated by two points at the top, it's obvious it's pretty tight for promotion though the teams could/should separate some as the season progresses.
