Embarrassing performance by Town.
Taking off Ward, our best player, and replacing him with Varney. Sums up McCarthy and we get what we deserve.
Soft penalties, but we would have wanted them if the position was reversed.
At the end of the day we created little or nothing in open play.

What an awful game of football, lacking pace, passion and quality....two very, very poor sides were on display tonight!
Terrible negative management that was highlighted by our substitutions.
One point or no points, does it really matter?? We should have been positive and gone for 3 but that would never happen with MM who would have settled for a point before kick off !

Two average mid table sides.

Poor,indisciplined load of rabble as a so called football team.A team captained by raving lunatic who now shows no sign of footballing ability.A manager who signs new players with more ability than team picked and leaves them on the bench for he whole match.Referee nowt having a lot of idea about refereeing but did know about the offence of pushing in the box will result in a penalty being given.Obvious town players have decided this offence would matter to them.I'm exasperated with McCarthyism team selection,but what do I know after watching the town for 65years.I rest my case!

Fed up of seeing Douglas, he is a donkey. Drip drab rubbish with a few moments of entertainment. Bored watching and waste of time and money. Promotion will never happen with these players and manager. It's one style and that's it, Sears playing outside is a waste, chambers shocking at right back. Fed up :(

The team just doesn't work. Pitman was trying to win the ball but it had been hoofed so far upfield that nobody was near him. There's no free flowing passing like these other teams produce. I think we need to change now.

Very Very frustrating. We played well 2nd half and should have been 1-2 or 1-3 up after 80mins. Shame our best chance fell to Smith. The ref was very poor all the way through the game. His pen decision at the end was poor also, as he missed a number of the same sort of fouls during corners, including Teddy, who was elbowed right in front of goal. If you are going to give a pen for the Knudsen foul then a number of pens could have been awarded, although we fell in to the trap of the Reading players winding our back 4 up, McShane (TW*T) in particular.
Still all that said, i still think we should have boxed Reading in when they were playing keep ball around their box. I still think we are lacking up front - Although he tracked back well, Sears needs to be rested and would like to have seen 2 up front - Best & Pitman.
Im still shaking my head that we didn't get something from that game.

Only watched the game on sky in a bar, but only heard Douglas name once and Sears three times? Why play Sears wide left when it is not his best position? The new signing on loan from Everton surely should have started there? I feel really sorry for Sears his career is stalling? No guile in midfield, Chambers badly exposed at right back, Smith also out out of position and Pitman never a target man! Where is the creativity? Reading were poor, a draw would have been a fair result, but let's not bemoan the loss, the team selected tonight was not good enough!
