I am literally out of things to write in this space. Aston Villa are traveling to Reading to play a match of football at the Madejski Stadium. They will be without players like Jack Grealish, and there is a very good chance that they will draw or lose. Also, we cannot watch this match through any means whatsoever. So boot up AVTV or your radio, or sit online and wait for some kind soul to Periscope a feed of one or the other (it will happen).
But maybe Aston Villa won’t lose. Maybe they won’t even draw. Maybe Steve Bruce can force this team into doing something strange. Something novel. Something akin to winning.
And if that happens, you’ll want to have heard it. Here’s how you can. UTV.
Location: Madejski Stadium, Reading, England
Kick-off time: 8 PM BST, 3 PM Eastern, 12 PM Pacific
Available TV: None
