Pointless, if they think they have a chance of about 38 points in 18 games to reach the play offs then good luck to them. Otherwise surely the cup is their season.

You`d think so wouldn`t you? If we were in their situation and unlikely to trouble the scorers at either end of the table I`d be mightily pissed if we did similar.

Cardiff fans warned for racist and homophonic remarks over the tannoy.

Dint want to jump to conclusions, but they did it seems have a chant of ‘you jack bastard’ going at the Reading manager.

Their captain stretchered off. No idea if it's a first team player.

Miagza?  Yes.

Not worth its own thread, but made me smile a little.

Some Coventry fans boycotted their cup match against Birmingham as a protest against playing their home matches at St Andrews. They can now go to the replay, at St Andrews, as it is now an away match.

Sorted.

Noticed that irony too. There was an interview on BBC Sport website on Friday from supporters club chairman saying he would only go to St Andrews as an away fan 

Roughly 50/50 split with attendance this afternoon

Sorry, should’ve said he was a key player last season, had injuries.  Very highly rated by the stats people!!

Some stupendous banter between the fans. Personal favourites were Birmingham fans chanting "How sh1t  must you be, we're drawing away" and Coventry fans responding with "We're the #ankers in your seats".

They sang “sheep shagging bastards, we know what we are” and “England is full of shit” and someone complained I read on Facebook.

I know the term ‘banter’ gets over used as a poor excuse now and again for stuff that is inexcusable.

But this is banter. Nuts if you get the ‘racism’ over the tannoy for that.

If it keeps happening, and it will, and keeps being reported, every one of their games will have to be abandoned.

Sadly read that a Reading supporter was ejected for doing plane impersonations to the Cardiff supporters, some people really let themselves down

Maybe we can satisfy them by enforcing that they play their league football in Wales from now on? 

You'd hate to be a Cardiff fan having to play "abroad" every other week

Thames Valley Police say four male Cardiff City fans were arrested for "alleged racially aggravated abuse" during Saturday's 1-1 FA Cup draw at Reading.

CCFC Statement 

Following conversations over the past 48 hours with Reading Football Club, Thames Valley Police and South Wales Police, we have a clear picture of the facts pertaining to Saturday’s stadium announcement during our fourth round FA Cup tie at Madejski Stadium and the upsetting allegations made against our supporters.

It is understood that the four Cardiff City supporters arrested and subsequently released prior to investigation were cited during the fixture for using what could be considered as unwarranted language. This language could be heard taking place between fans of both clubs and was of an anti-Welsh/anti-English nature.

We are extremely disappointed that Reading Football Club chose to label the behaviour as racist and homophobic (of which there has been no evidence). We also question their protocol and procedure on the day and welcome a full investigation into its use for the benefit of both our clubs and indeed British football.

We are also very disturbed and concerned with some of the subsequent press and media reporting on this matter. Cardiff City Football Club is fully supportive of the efforts being made to banish racism, homophobia and other prejudices from our game and feel that inaccurate or mis-informed reporting harms and dilutes this critical messaging and the work football does within diverse communities in our city and its surrounding areas. Cardiff City is an inclusive club and embraces all cultures, ethnicities and people. We would welcome a retraction from those press and media outlets that have given the perception of our supporters as being racist and homophobic.

Cardiff City FC Executive Director & CEO, Ken Choo, said on the matter: “Our Football Club prides itself on its respect of all people, irrespective of their background, beliefs or orientation. Cardiff is a diverse and welcoming, modern multicultural city and our supporters’ actions reflect that at our games. We have a zero tolerance approach towards racist or homophobic behaviour and our supporters’ conduct consistently reflects that.

“The announcement made at Reading this weekend was both damaging and hurtful and we would welcome a public apology from them to our supporters.

“I look forward to the conclusion of the police investigation, at which point I am confident that the reputation of our club and fans will be fully and unequivocally restored.”

That has got to be up there with one of the most ridiculous things ever to happen at football, to say so Reading have made a massive balls up here is an understatement & I’m worried for what we might get accused of chanting tomorrow if they struggle to understand our accent?

Reading have now issued a public apology to Cardiff City and their supporters admitting they got this horribly wrong. 

As a result Reading will review the processes they should follow in the future

As it turns out, they threw one of their own fans out for revealing his rather portly belly!! Nothing like overreacting!

He was doing an aeroplane motion shouting about Salah
