Reading 1-2 Liverpool

Premiership Reading
by BBC Sport (U3702819) 05 April 2007
comment on the article

Liverpool snatched victory over Reading through Dirk Kuyt's 86th-minute winner.
The Royals felt they should have had a penalty when Jose Reina clipped Steve Hunt but Alvaro Arbeloa's breakaway goal put the Reds in front soon after.

Reading levelled through Brynjar Gunnarsson's fierce shot and almost led when Peter Crouch headed John Oster's free-kick against his own bar.

Liverpool were short of ideas but stole the points when substitute Kuyt nodded home Jermaine Pennant's deep cross.

two class goals from liverpool but I thought reading were a little unlucky today and I wasn't convinced of Oster on the right for us, huffed and puffed but other than a couple of solid crosses there wasn't a lot to him, doyle was starved of any decent delivery.

i thought along with shorey (for england!) our main man was stevie hunt what a class act, just doesn't stop running and he's gotten stronger on his feet this season, with his low center of gravity, if he keeps improving like he is, we'll have our very own mcmaradona, and we can slip him into the middle when sidwell heads to liverpool!

btw well done liverpool you have a class looking team (even that thug bellamy), i hope you go all the way in europe again!

Though I'm feeling pretty hard done by given the late goal and the two first half penalty shouts that were ignored, I have to say fair play to Liverpool- despite never having any real sustained pressure on our goal, they really made the most of the breaks that they got.

We gave the ball away once (or twice) too often on the half way line and really got punished for it.

Don't you see, When Man Utd/ Chelsea do it, it's the sign of a title winning team. Anyone else is just plain jammy.

I thought the game was played in good spirit which is nice to see. I'm very happy to read the gentlemanly congratulations from the Reading fans, not like the usual bickering.
I really hope Reading continue to do well this season, particularly given who your manager is.

RightRoyal:

Agree with your assessment of Hunt and Shorey as your best players today. Shorey was very good for you, and I agree, let's see him given a chance to wear an England shirt. I've not seen much of his play, but whenever I do, he's one to watch. <ok>
