Thread: Reading fans had to set out at 5.30 this morning

  1. #1

    Reading fans had to set out at 5.30 this morning

    To get to Manchester for the lunchtime FA Cup game v Man Utd.

    Spare a thought for any fans of non league French side Excelsior who are playing Lille today in the French Cup.

    They have had to go 5,500km

    Tbf most Man U fans have to leave Reading pretty early to make the kick off most weeks

    Spare a thought for Nugent, he had to clean the back garden, do the dishes and clean the kitchen, wash the kitchen floor and tidy the attic before the long drive to his beloved old Trafford, all this with a hangover too, that's dedication.

    I left the Cotswolds at 7:30am to get to the game. I wish I hadn't bothered....
    The Reading coaches could have departed at 6:30am in reality. The drive home took a lot longer than the drive there.

    Compare that to Excelsior fans who had to travel 20,500km today!
