Lee Bowyer was quick to praise the fans, yet again, after their superb support at the Madejski yesterday.
Sit back and appreciate this racing.

You’ve got to be f*cking kidding me. F*ck.
Johnson’s got damage he can’t salvage that. I don’t see how he’s in the Playoff’s at this point.
Such a good freaking run for him ruined by someone else’s dumb shit.
Some nimwit like Suarez or Bowyer or Newman will be in.
