We love a cupset at FFC and we were treated to the beautiful moment of this Saturday as West Brom fell to Reading in one of the 3pm kick-offs.
Tony Pulis’ side faltered away from home and the baseball cap wearing boss continues to have a pretty ordinary cup record, despite making the final all those years ago as Stoke boss. Saido Berahino’s January saga doesn’t seem to have damaged the club too much, but Reading will be ecstatic to get the better of a Premier League side, including a late goal for Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon!
Twitter, as ever, had a field day with such a poor result for the Baggies!
Paddy Power probably aren’t best mates with the Reading boss.
Ooh, Reading are 2-1 up against West Brom. Reading boss Brian McDermott can almost taste victory. pic.twitter.com/SEIYBK8dKJ

At least Aston Villa are winning at abusing their players..?
Brunt applauded the fans and went to give his shirt away and had a coin thrown at his face #wbafc

Cuteeeee stuff from the fans. Really pleased with the result, I guess.
Everton going and stuffing Bournemouth now will contrast why RMs approach is correct, and Tony Pulis should be emptying bins in Pill.

Pulis givin’ it the big’un in his pre-match press conference doesn’t seem to have gone down too well!
I'm sure Pulis will pull some #avfc stats out the bag in his interview.

At least the defeat has given Villa fans something to smile about, ey?
Hope West Brom get relegated and Berahino leaves for £2m

Berahino strolled that game. Cheat. #wba

Whatever West Brom fans think of Berahino, Spurs fans will always want him at their club, it seems!
