Oh no. Please pundits, don't be backing us. Back Huddersfield. I like us being the underdogs.

A pundit backed Reading? Impossible. Next you're going to be telling me that Reading beat Fulham in a two-legged playoff :roll:

You're living in a fantasy land.

Err, Huddersfield were Chris Iwulemo's tip for relegation this season.

I quite like Iwulemo, even if he did knock us out if the cup with an outrageously offside goal about 15 years ago. Who can forget his miss against England that made Swift's chance look difficult.

As long as David Prutton goes for Huddersfield, then I don't care who other pundits go for.

Waiting with bated breath to see how Lawrenson calls it.

This.

In fact this should be added to the Reading FC badge - maybe in Latin to make it all fancy

It was indeed Norway, I was bored that afternoon and put a bet on Scotland to win to liven it up a bit, i had a fist pump as the cross went across the box, went and got another beer, and thought sky had messed up with the score showing 0-0.

Pretty sure it finished 0-0 as well.

Unreal miss!

Under the radar all the way!!

I really do think Stam has pulled off a miracle even getting us to the final, spent money but no where near what others have spent and his first season in charge in England.

Main reason I want to go up (even though I think we are not ready) is to ensure we keep him as manager!

I heard an in-depth preview of the Championship play-offs in the 5 Live Daily Football Podcast last week, during which Reading were not mentioned. Sometimes paranoia is the only answer.
