They all share one Nokia 3210 apparently. They are a bit slow on the uptake.

He looks a bit like early 90s singing sensation, Haddaway.

Maybe it's the Carabao but I think he looks like he's just been rescued from a cave

Reckon he's going to be one for the academy. In which case let's hope he's better than whichever youngsters we already have in his position.

Definitely for the Academy. If he was first team material he'd have had a lot more interest in him and he'd be flying out to Austria immediately.

So let's hope he's better than whichever youngsters we already have in his position.

Just like Pelle Clement was "definitely for the academy".

Basically a defensive Pelle Clement

Was he? Don't think anyone knew that for sure as he'd played for Ajax first team as well as a mass of games for Jong Ajax plus Stam included him with the first team squad from the off.

This guy is 20, has only a handful of Jong Ajax games and given Reading have rather a lot of first team cover defensively at the moment I can't see him being involved for a good while yet. Happy to be proved wrong of course :)

By the way is Sidoel pronounced Sidwell?

Highlight reel for any interested. Seems handy enough for a youngen.

Edit: just saw this was posted in 2015. He's probably gotten better...

looks like a right back. I am starting to think Gunter's days may be numbered (and quite possibly Watson's)

20 years-old and not travelling to Austria. Sounds like one for the U23's this season and see how he goes.

Brian Tevreden's record in the Dutch market is second to everyone, so I'm mightily excited.
