Jobi McAnuff: Confident Reading have what it takes to avoid relegation

The Royals captain, who joined the side in 2009, scored for the first time in 11 months in the 2-1 defeat to Sir Alex Ferguson's men on Monday in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

And while expressing delight at his long-awaited goal, the 31-year-old insists Reading are prepared to fight for their Premier League survival if that's what is needed come the end of the season.

"It was a nice place to get one and long overdue," said McAnuff.

"Hopefully I have a few important ones to come from now until the end of the season. The main thing is to keep performing well."

Reading host fellow strugglers Wigan this weekend, with the Latics trailing Brian McDermott's men by just two points.

McAnuff added: "Come the end of the season, if we need to win against West Ham to stay up then that's a must-win game.

"Other than that, it's a game of football and there are still a lot of points to play for. Of course it's a big game, but they all are in the league that we are in.

"We're in decent form and we're playing fairly well. We're very confident at the moment and we just need to keep going."

I

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

W

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
