It shouldn't happen to an FA Cup player of the round

FedericiPoor Reading keeper Adam Federici must have come crashing down to Earth a couple of minutes into his side's FA Cup defeat against Manchester United last night. The 22-year-old Aussie had already been voted player of the round before he let Gabriel Heinze's drive through his body two minutes into the replayed fifth-round match.

The star of the Royals' 1-1 draw at Old Trafford has had a pretty good time of it of late. After taking the plaudits for his performance against United, Federici was then offered his first contract of any great length. And he was the subject of this heart-warming BBC feature, which reveals that until recently he was kipping on Ibrahima Sonko's sofa! Unfortunately, Adam, this is the bit of your fifth-round exploits that will stick in my memory.

I watched the first 2 minutes, went to the loo and missed 2 goals by the time I got back..

Mind you, it was a good comeback by Reading but am I the only one to think that Bikey really shouldn't have been on the pitch? Not 'cause of any fouls mind, just because he was rubbish! Didn't run, didn't track back, didn't mark and played Solskjaer onside (which almost let him score a fourth)

Does he play like that every week?
