    both of them gave Readings wide players too much space
    cross after cross coming into the box, especially second half

    Im glad that Gaz and Evra are first choice tbh as much as i love Heinze i believe that he has lost something

    Yes, though they also weren't getting enough help - especially Heinze.

    Heinze was decent tonight I thought. It can't be easy having the overspaz playing ahead of you. They didn't get too much joy down his side of the pitch, unless they doubled up.

    Brown nearly had me shitting myself on about 50 seperate occasions

    I wouldn't blame them, Reading were willing to leave it 1v1 at the back and at that point it becomes very hard to defend, the attack should have managed to put 1 move together to kill it in the second half

    We need better fullbacks. One of if not the most important player on the pitch. A guy that have to be defensively and offensively apt, or at least world class at one of those.

    Ours are only good at recycling the ball. We have the worst pair of fullbacks by far from all of the top 10 teams in the world.

    fecking Manchester City spent over 100M in fullbacks, and you see the fecking result.
