There's no flies on George. With West Ham leading as half time approached in the automatic promotion shoot out against Reading, Linda suddenly had a revelation, seeing a truth, until then, shrouded from the eyes of the Allardyce led team. I hand over to George to explain:
"“I actually said to Matt Taylor in about the 39th or 40th minute, we need a second goal, because I think that would have seen Reading off”.
Well bugger me with a Northern black pudding! Amazing! The idea that 1-0 isn't enough! Who would have have thought it?
Sadly we are not treated to Matty's response. He probably looked aghast and replied:
"Two goals, in one game? We're at home remember George. The boss doesn't like excess. Two goals is a bit over the top surely. This is Reading you know. This is the hardest division of all to get out of, except the Prem of course, and Reading are in second. And Carlton's already got his goal so who else will score? Dangerous game going for a second. Could leave ourselves exposed at the back. Best stick with what we have at the moment. Hang on, Kebe's got the ball, let's go and kick him!"
