again, oh my god, wow
end to end action. "goalkeeper has been magnificent tonight. andy johnson has to be wondering how he hasn't scored" great chance for palace, draws two magnificent saves from mh. "mh clearly the difference between winning and losing tonight, been absolutely magnificent for me, absolute class"
The UK announcer is praising Hahneman to the skies for a save on Johnson at point blank range. Its been a really good game in the second half.
Super Marcus!!! From his back with the second save.
Very dangerous right-footed cross by Convey comes to nothing.
dangerous little ball through to lita, almost through except for bit of last ditch defending. still end to end, could go either way. long shot be aj, never going to beat mh on this night
convey carrying down the left, fouled. free kick results in a corner - deflected out for another corner to reading
Okay, if midfielders run six/seven miles in an average game, how far have they gone today. It's not just end to end, it's shot, shot, shot, shot. Frantic, but only for 80+ minutes.
corner worked short, played into the middle to convey at the top of the box, bobbles a bit on the touch, takes on half volley and makes great contact but goes wide
convey plays in lita, ball put across the 6, sliding reading player can't put it on goal, out for a gk
7 miles in 90 minutes. Hmmm. For perspective, world class runners run 10,000 meters (approx 6 1/4 miles) in 26 minutes or so. It's not the distance, it's the sprinting, stopping, sprinting, etc.
Only two minutes of extra time? Probably makes sense. I'm waiting for the whistle blasts now, though. blow it, ref....
ft - shared points seems about right...
jeez, I'm out of breath and I only read the PBP
unreal. just showed the table. absolutely unbelieveable that palace is sitting 5th, but fully 25 points behind reading with 48 points versus reading's 73
73 points, and CP is the loser here, and Reading can well afford to add a point, while for Palace it's dropping two.
The table, btw:
What a great, great last 15 minutes. The build-up to the Reading goal was tremendous, even though Bobbinho was not involved. Still, I thought Bobby played quite well and threw in several dangerous crosses. Further, Sir Marcus seemed the most impressive player out there to me. What a great point blank save on Andy Johnson.
something you'd never hear in the States - a play-by-play guy using the word "denouement"
Couldn't get the video to work until the second half. But thanks nonetheless. Good job!
Great game from MH.
Note to self: DVR Sky Sports tonight.
WOW!!! What a great match to watch. More exciting then many EPL matches I've seen. Thought Bobby was going to play hero when the ball dropped to him top of the box for the volley. Marcus is the man! Stopped everything (pk aside) that Palace could throw at him. WOW, again, really fun match. Makes my $13 a month for Setenta worth every penny.
Marcus was amazing!! Being interviewed on Sky right now!! MOTM!!
He gets the MOTM medal and Reading has the record!!
those are the French Benefits of British broadcasts
mh in the post-game interview on sky. sounds like a proper american, no fake accent, no "lads"
no proper American would actually use the phrase "proper American"
