Marcus could get the start, no hint from Reading as of yet.
out of lack of anything better to do tonight i think i'll head off to this match. I'll bring my digital camera and try to get a shot or two of Marcus in a Reading kit.
Check back here a few hours after the match!
According to soccernet, Marcus is starting in goal. Game should be starting right about now.
Now at half time, still scoreless. Would be good for Marcus to get a clean sheet in his first start.
Skysports.com reports Burnley only got off 2 shots on Marcus and only 1 on goal in the first half. Burnley have no corners.
Reading, meanwhile, have 14 shots, 5 on target, and 6 corners.
Reading 1-0, 55'. Cureton.
2-0 Reading ...can't tell who just scored and when
Martin Butler, from Cureton. 87'.
and now 3-0 with another from Cureton
FT, 3-0 to Reading.
Looking forward to seeing the shots, Splarq.
ok, I'm working on getting some on-line now.
Marcus didn't really have to do anything at all, and the home supporters seem to like him a lot. While one of the Burnley players was down injured he was juggling the ball to the applause of the reading supporters. The only real save he made was a 1v1 which was offside anyways. Pretty solid preformance, but while it was not bad, his distribution could have been better. Both sides were pretty dreadful though.
pictures up soon, mostly all of marcus (well all). They aren't that great or amazing, so don't get your hopes up
I hope this page wont take too long to load... I took 16 pictures, I'm going to put quite a few of them up.... some may be crap, but that's just going to have to be ok.
After seeing highlights..
Hahnemann with the assist on the third goal, nice kick upfield straight to Cureton who chipped the keeper, who was just dazed in no man's land.
Reading match report:
Three pictures of Marcus:
OK, I selcted 11 of the 16 (the best 11)
Here they are starting with the first one...
Its going to take a while to get them all up, I have a nice slow dial-up connection, so bare with me if you are waiting for them in real time....
If there are some little errors on the pictures its because of me resizing them and changing them from jpg to gif
And you also get a bonus 12'th one i decided might be nice as some sort of closer....
If there are any of these you like and would like the original size (without the white dots) then drop me a PM and tell me which you want and I'll e-mail them to you (providing you give me your e-mail addy)
Hope you have enjoyed the pictures!
Thanks for the pics, Splarg.
Looked like a lot of empty seats. I bet they were all sitting on the other side.
That actually is pretty true, most people were in the bigger stand, which is where i was. The Attendance was quite low though (Burnley are still the only club in Div.1 without a point) and it was a tuesday match while there was a CL qualifier and a premiership match on TV at the same time. just over 12,000 people there in a 24,000 seater stadium. It is a really nice place to go for a match, though.
