I think that was the fastest ever goal scored by a Reading player!

Really good cup tie, shame we couldn't hold on and conceeded a soft one at the death.

Crap ref yet again, did get the two sending offs right though.

Still possibly only 3 wins away from Europe!!

He can look sublime. If only he could keep his game together for five seconds at a time.

An extra midweek away game that we really could have done without, though.

Deserved to win that. Cracking cup tie, and we were excellent in the second half. Should have gone with 2 up front for the whole game, but can understand the reasoning behind the 4-5-1.

Kebe and Griffin were both very good. Mills his usual self. Ivar was pretty poor though IMO.

I think its the fastest ever FA Cup goal!! Top marks for scoring it, but only Kebe could have an average game when he should be full of confidence.

Great start but then we appeared to take our foot of the pedal. WBA better for much of the first half.

Second half Long gets sent off, difficult to see from my position in the NE corner but looked harsh.
I thought that's it then! Were FKED

Then their number 21 lets us back in the game. If he was one of ours I would be seething. I expect he should get heavily fined because his petulance got us back in the game and so nearly through to the next round.

We were the better side in the 2nd half. Griffin was immense. Disappointing because we could have won that comfortably if we were a bit more solid.

Still written off after the draw against the scousers. so who knows what will happen in 10 days or so.

Personally thought both sending offs were harsh and the refs overall performance was horrendusly inconsistent.

Good, fairly even, game with both sides waxing and waning and some nice end to end stuff in places. You could tell West Brom had the more quality, but largely I think if we were better at taking chances we'd have done enough to win that.

Extra cash as surely the replay will be on TV.

Griffin is immense, although probably to blame for their first goal. Didn't need to come inside as there were double the number of Reading players than Baggies in the middle and he ended up leaving Koran free.

Mills is really starting to impress me as well. Karacan played much better. McAnuff needs to influence games more again.

Well played Kebe.

Seriously gutted about this, not too confident about the replay. Only way I'll cheer up is if we draw Chelsea away in the next round.

hink


Though Ivar was ok, Griffin was very good indeed, shame McAnuff and Kebe didnt get in many crosses though. Think Gunnar will be phyisically dead by Wednesdays game as he was out of it by 90 mins.

Best game for Karacan in a long while.

Deserved to win in my honest opinion. Great start by Kebe and we should of built on it, however we didn't. Towards the end of the first half, WBA started to dominate, and we allowed their midfielders/wingers far too much space. Second half, we came out fighting. Didn't really see the Long red card, but I thought, that decision could of ruined our chances.

Good goal by Simon Church, but once again we failed to build on that goal, and allowed WBA to sneak it. We should of been more clinical in the box.

Great atmosphere today and hopefully we can continue this great form at the moment into our forthcoming league games and the replay.

Our fastest ever goal apparently, but fastest FA Cup goal is supposedly 4 seconds, so twice as quick.

Actually, having seen it again they said fastest Goal in the FA Cup proper. According to SSN anyway.

At 4 seconds I guessed it had to be some sort of qualifying round hoof from the kick off.
