The verdict is in, three injured players from one game.
I did not want to say anything about the game until I watched it again. Now that I have I am disgusted with the tactics employed by Reading’s manager McDermott.
From the first kick they tried to neutralise Torres & Gerrard with rough play and Phil Dowd turned a blind eye to that first challenge in the game which should have been a definite yellow. That challenge was the one that injured Torres, this of course set the stage for the game and at the end we ended up with Gerrard & Yossi out for a couple of weeks and Torres sent to the operating table.
While many have congratulated Reading for beating us, I am not.
They might be in a different division now, have a different manager but Reading are the reason why Petr Cech wears protective headgear.
