Speaking of Van Den Berg, her interview left me really puzzled

What attracted you to the club?

“First of all the style of play, the way of playing football and the intentions, from what I’ve seen when Liverpool played against Reading, to build from behind, starting from the goalkeeper is how we play in the national team as well


I have watched Reading last season and they were defending deep, parking the bus and got a lot of draws and safety thanks to their defensive strength. So I really don't get what she means  ::)

City 1 Reading 0

Game as expected, City dominating Reading on the break.  Very good defensive performance from rreading overall but not enough in the end.

Was at the Arsenal - Spurs match on Sunday. The gulf between the 2 teams was stark. The visitors did not have any shots on or off target- if it wasn't for the keeper, it may well have been 14 or 15.

No one expected Spurs to get anything out of the game beforehand but to their credit, they did not give up even at 10-0 and their fans got behind them right to the end.
