It appears that both of my teams have issues with their squads already.

 

Reading have an injury crisis, while Leyton Orient have signed so many players that they haven't gelled together yet, hence why we weren't very competitive in the defeat to Sutton.

 

Both teams play again tonight - Reading face Gillingham in the League Cup and Orient host Solihull Moors in the league. Given that Solihull didn't play last weekend due to their pitch, that could be interesting...:fingersCrossed:

 

Oh yeah, and just for the record, Orient play Tranmere on the 4th October and 10th February.

Aaagh, beaten at home by Sutton Utd . :(

 

Well done Burnley , winning at Chelsea,  Burnley were the first team I ever watched when the won the top division in 1958-9.   Nice win for Huddersfield too in their first Premier League match

Aaagh, Reading conceded a late equaliser against a Fulham side who had a player sent off in the 1st minute...<_<

 

Better fortunes for Leyton Orient, as we secured another win against Maidstone - the third team we've faced for the first time in our history.

 

Burnley have already equalled the number of Premier League away wins they had last season :lol:

Very happy - Watford drew with Liverpool yesterday and I was there in the crowd (part of my birthday treat), and I can even be seen in the crowd on the video shots of the last Watford goal - proof if any was needed that I was there! Whoopee!

Orient are 2-0 down to Bromley - a town I always went through to get from Leyton to Lewes (my non-league team*).

 

We've only met Bromley once before, where we beat them in an FA Cup tie in 2011.

 

Reading v Villa still goalless...

 

* Oh yeah, I forgot... Leyton Orient are non-league too...:ph34r:

Hmm another away draw.  I was hoping for a win at Guiseley.

We've got 6, and you've got 5.

 

So far, we've beaten 2 teams below us and lost to 2 teams above us.

 

Our next match is against Woking, who have exactly the same points and goal difference as us. That's got a draw written all over it :P

 

Good win for Reading against Villa though - first win of the season :)
