Reading away

Oh, what fun it is to see City win away! But they didn't. Took my son to his first away match as City took on Reading at the Majedski Stadium. City played like they couldn't be bothered and lost 2-1. At least the sun shone, thought the Majedski has to be the coldest staidum I've ever been to.

We had a lovely police escort - all the way home - well from Reading to Newport to be precise. Now there were +/- 30 coaches, and City's following doesn't have the best of reputations (unfairly I'd say), but to have an all lights flashing escort ALL the way home, blocking every junction exit seemed a bit OTT and must have cost an arm and a leg. I didn't see any trouble of any description, so not sure what was going on there.
