Berbatov was seen holding his back during periods of the first half, and it was expected that the striker may be substituted at half-time.

However, Berbatov had an injection during the interval, and was able to score Fulham's third goal before Reading equalised in injury-time.

"It was difficult, because I think Berbatov broke his rib," Jol said.

"We thought he may come off at half-time, but he had an injection to carry on."

Jol was frustrated that his side could not hold on for the victory, saying: "It is definitely two points dropped. We should have won the game.

"When you score three goals away from home, against Reading, you deserve to win.

"We were the better team, we kept the ball and had more purpose to our play. But you have to exploit that."

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
