Peterborough 6-0 Reading: Insert expletive here

After the 7-5 capitulation against Arsenal some fans questioned whether that was the most embarrassing performance in Reading's history. While that may have been a stretch to accept, tonight's 6-0 thumping by League One Peterborough will certainly be a contender for that dubious honour, rating right up there with the 6-0 thumping at Tranmere in 1997, or the 6-0 humiliation at home to Bristol Rovers. Jon will be along with a full report later.. if he survives writing it.

Toilet... the only way to describe that one... in a family friendly manor.

Many Reading fans raided their liquor cabinets and cats everywhere ran away in terror.

If you want to actually read the details of this one, as I said Jon will provide a full account in the morning but you're a braver person than I am if you want to re-live that nightmare.

Reading made nine changes to the team from Blackpool but it was a team still including an Australian international goalkeeper, the Latvian captain, a Jamaican international £2.5m centre half, an American international, a Russian international and January's Premier League player of the month.

Utterly disgraceful and while at 4-0 I was trying to rationalise this in the respect that, 'well it's not the league side' by 6-0 there's no place to hide and the manager, club and in particular the players need to take a good hard look at themselves.

If some of those players were hoping for a move well good luck finding a buyer.

We move on to Yeovil and I think (and dear lord I hope) it can't possibly get any worse.

Oh and here's a note for Nigel Adkins, the last manager to suffer a 6-0 away defeat unsurprisingly didn't see out the season, still at least that man sacked has got experience driving a Taxi that might be able to pick him up if required.
