And I will bid you farewell.
I hope you enjoyed this live text, Wayne Rooney brought it to life and Ali Al Habsi's contribution will be revisited for sure. Not a bad offering as far as cup ties go.
Reading fans, have a safe journey home and draw comfort from the fine form you have shown in the league. Manchester United fans, make sure you take in Monday's round four draw on the BBC Sport website.
Thanks for all your tweets today. Have a cracking afternoon.
