Ian Harte falls over during Reading v Aston Villa

Watch as veteran defender Ian Harte falls over during the Premier League clash between Reading v Aston Villa on Saturday. One of many humorous moments in the game, the Harte fall was perhaps the best.

Aston Villa secured a vital three points after coming from behind at the Madejski Stadium to win 2-1, only their second league victory in 2013, despite a horror own goal from youngster Nathan Baker (see below).

Burp’s favourite part of the match occurred as the 35-year-old Republic of Ireland international was running the ball out of defense.

Suddenly, without warning, Ian Harte falls over and tumbles over to his left-hand side, landing on the pitch in a crumpled heap.

Plus! As a special bonus, watch hapless Aston Villa youngster Nathan Baker’s horror (or stunning) own goal that put Reading 1-0 up.

Some joker at Mirror Online helped us out with their commentary on both incidents:

22 MINS: Ian Harte falls over for no reason and with no other player anywhere near him. Perhaps he’s stopped wearing boots that are two sizes too small and switched to ones that are two sizes too big.

23 MINS: Villa defender Nathan Baker slices the ball into his own net. Paul Lambert’s policy of fielding a team filled with the footballing equivalent of a basket of blind kittens works against them yet again.
