Review by Blackpool fan Dan Ogden

Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?

Decent FA Cup draw, plus club legend Charlie Adam also plays for Reading.

How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?

Took the coach, which was a hefty 5 hour journey. Stopped at Henley on Thames before the game for 2 hours which was nice.

Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?

Went to Wetherspoons in Henley. Didn’t have chance to go to the pubs near the ground. No atmosphere as there were quite a lot of residents as you would expect in a Wetherspoons.

What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?

Nice away end with a good open view, no impaired vision. Close to the home fans so there is always bound to be agro especially when the goals go in.

What was the atmosphere like during the match?

Quite disappointing, probably because it was an FA Cup game. The action on the pitch made up for the atmosphere however!

How friendly were the home fans out of 10?


How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?

Coach £30, pints £14, food £10, match ticket £5. Decent value for money I’d say.

Would you recommend this away day to other fans?

Not for a cup game, but definitely for a league game.
