An emotional rollercoaster of a game, that one.

There are some games that you can't bring yourself to watch back. (cough, Fulham 5-0, cough.) There are some that you are happy to watch back over and over again. And then there are the games you can watch back only because you know the result. This is one of those games.

Right, let's see what happens here then.

FLIPPING HECK!

That was a beauty. That pass. That finish. Barcelona who?

0:20-0:30

Long ball forward. Deal with that.

Or don't. You know. Whatever.

0:31-0:48

Alright, lads, you need to be winning those second balls. That's twice in two sections of these highlights you've let the flick on beat you.

0:49-1:02

I'm going to say that's another flick on you've not picked up.

But wasn't he offside? Are we sure about that?

1:03-1:17

What a shot Little Liam! So unlucky.

Did it cross the line?

Moore following in, what a lad.

Hey, either way, that's a Liam goal. Well done Liam.

1:18-1:30

Have The Royals won a single header this game?

1:31-1:45

WHAT KIND OF A HALF-A*SED ATTEMPT AT A CLEARANCE OFF THE LINE WAS THAT?

ANOTHER HEADER? Flippin' 'eck.

1:46-2:07

YES! Quick thinking by Gunter, good run by McCleary, calm finish by Evans.

I think I'm starting to believe the play-offs are possible.

Hold me.
