Liverpool Jump The Gun A Bit

Posted on January 15, 2010 by  

Clearly not expecting the mighty Reading to put in another performance like that, Liverpool sent out details of how to get 4th round tickets, 2 hours before kick off. Here is the email they sent out to everyone on their Auto Cup list!

This is hours potential fun, as Reading fans already ringing the ticket office to try and book!

Try it yourself, just call the number on the email below…..

“I got the e-mail about tickets for the 4th round game vs Burnley, can I book them please?”
“unfortunately not”
“why not?”
“we lost last night”
“oh okay, it says on the e-mail the game’s confirmed, did you not wait until after the game?”
“hahaha well good job I support Reading”

And in case you missed it, where were you, scroll down for the highlights. Sorry but this gets better everytime I watch it, hope my voice comes back soon, what a night for us Reading fans!
