On Monday the draw for the 3rd round of the FA Cup will be with us (live on BBC 2 at 7pm)
Reading will be number 32
For the last 3 years Reading have been give cr@p ties away at fellow Division 2 sides (Huddersfield twice and little tiny tinpot Brighton) and while you may feel a change should be on the cards my expectation is for something equally cr@p like Leeds, Norwich, Barnsley or some other game against a familiar old face
Personally I'd like a game against a non league team e.g. Woking or Brackley but looking at the 2nd round it seems that there aren't too many of those left (only one guaranteed to make the draw - Eastleigh or Halifax)
So failing that a game against Carlisle would be nice as I believe they are the team the we have gone the longest without playing (35 years?) plus who wouldnt want to go to Cumbria in January?
