o It's only a minute in and Reading already look in trouble. Have a feeling this is going to be a very different game from the last time these two teams met....
o Alexander Büttner's got some himself some serious tats
o That's better by Reading. They don't really look a side in the relegation zone
o Vida has a small cut on his eyebrow; Noel Hunt looks as if he was in a car crash.
o Welbeck works incredibly hard around the box; that was great work by Danny to win the ball back
o How in the world did Ashley Young not score there?!
o Speaking of tattoos, Hunt's back is veritable sea of ink
o We've gone off the boil since the early pressure. Still unlucky not to have the lead, though
o Phil Jones limping off is a big loss. Hope he's not hurt too badly
o United are basically down to nine men with Jones exiting, because Ando hasn't run anywhere in about 15 minutes
o Wait! Ando's running again. Must've fueled up at the buffet table at halftime
o The following words signify the absolute death of any attack: "Valencia with the ball now...."
o An hour in and still scoreless; fans getting restless
o RVP on; the countdown to winning goal begins....
o 6 minutes. Not bad, Nani: 1-0 United
o 10 minutes. Insurance goal from Chich. 2-0, and surely it's a date with Chelsea now
o Hold that thought! Another Reading comeback in the cards? 2-1. We never make it easy, do we?!
o Fergie looking at his watch as if he's never seen it before
o That was not easy, but we're through *exhales*
