Excellent Weekend for Americans in Premiership

0%2C%2C10306%7E2720587%2C00 Excellent Weekend for Americans in PremiershipBefore Reading’s match today against Manchester City, left winger – and American – Bobby Convey said it best:

“It will be cool to play in a big game – the only game on the night. Night games under lights are always the most exciting ones. People back in the States will be working, as it will be two or three o’clock then, but they always have it on tape for later. Every time I go home more and more people know who I am and who I play for.”

Judging by his performance tonight, even more people will recognize him after a beautiful curling left-foot free kick resulted in a header by Ivar Ingimarsson, leading to the only goal in the match. It was also a great night for goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann, too. Both were buoyed by a surprisingly loud Reading crowd.

On Saturday, Brian McBride and Carlos Bocanegra scored the two Fulham goal’s in their surprise 2-1 win at Newcastle.
