This is what the personalities on each side had to say to say after Reading's 3-0 defeat to West Ham at the Madejski stadium.
Reading boss Steve Coppell told the BBC, "It's the first time I've gone into a game and been fearful when we have been attacking. It was consistent and obvious but we kept getting caught.
"We need to do something about it. The alarm bells are clanging in my brain.
"The performance going forward was okay in many aspects but we were flawed in one aspect - we looked so vulnerable on the counter-attack. It must have happened about a dozen times and they scored two goals when we were attacking.
"They were very solid and deserved the win but we're bitterly disappointed."
West Ham manager Alan Curbishley told the BBC, "Considering what happened to last year it was fantastic result.
"We got a great start and Craig scored a fantastic goal. He had a fitness test today but said he was okay and his first goal was typical Craig Bellamy. I've been delighted with Craig. I've not had a minute's problem with him.
"They put us under a lot of pressure but we defended and that gave us the base and we always looked like scoring goals on the break.
"We broke well, we were a bit wasteful in front of goal but it was very good performance."
