Button: MOM two games in a row.



This is a turnup for the books!

Very good performance by the team especially when you take into account that Reading committed 18 fouls with 71% of the play, if you deduct the time the ball was not in play or with Button they fouled us once for each minute we had the ball, 11 more fouls than we committed with twice the opportunity to commit fouls. Really starting to dislike Reading and Stam, I hope they get their just deserts this season. 049:gif

It's certainly not a turnip for the books. Have to give him his due, has shown tremendous character considering his loss of form and confidence which has plagued him in recent months. I hope he continues the good work.

If Graham Taylor had ever been MoM would it have been a turnip for the books?

Well said. Incredible effort to come back and draw that against all the odds. These lads are a unit, that's for sure.

The fighting spirit was certainly there and so was the organisation that enabled to play the unnatural defensive game necessary with ten men.

And that's based on the fouls "recognised" by the referee. There were a good deal more unpenalised. Reading are a horrible team.

Think you may have misunderstood my point. By all means he deserves it. Just to say who would have thought he'd be our top player 2 games in a row after last season and his major gaffe in preseason.
