RUMOUR - Yoann Barbet

by windermereROYAL » 14 Jan 2018 12:09

Bid placed for Brentford defender doing the rounds on twitter. Moore could be on his way or replacement for McShane, can also play LB.

If I never read again that a potential Reading signing "can also play 'x'" it'll be too soon.

Rumour seems to have come from HITC who, let's be honest, are as much use as a two legged donkey in the Grand National.

They broke the Aluko transfer.

As Kes would put it, they were "First with the news 8) "

And much like our sadly departed kes, if you link every player to every other team in the league, you'll eventually get one right.

IIRC, that numpty from Norwich who was as on here last year linking Reading to every player in the Opta top ten wrote for HITC. Anyone who claims Oliver Norwood is one of the top 5 players in the Championship based on a highly subjective Opta stat is clueless.

No doubt he was on every other forum masquerading as a fan and posting the same shit on them as well.

Saiz* but yes. Barbet then rinsed him and took the piss out of him for being short.

Hearing Sevilla may be interested in him too. I know what I would choose,

He would be the Barbet of Seville.

I am told by a Brentford season ticket holder that he is pretty decent and is good at free kicks.

Do they even have to turn up? Will it not save time to award the points to them now saving everyone time, effort and money?

Get West London says

Brentford have rejected a bid out of hand from Reading for defender Yoann Barbet.

The Royals have been looking for defensive cover and made an offer for the Frenchman that fell way short of the club's evaluation.

And Brentford head coach Dean Smith confirmed the bid and insisted that the club were unwilling to allow the Frenchman to leave TW8.
He confirmed to GetWestLondon: “I'm led to believe they made a bid but it was nowhere near the club's evaluation for him and we're not looking at selling him.

Why Brentford selling Yoann Barbet to Reading is unlikely and would make no sense
“I'm led to believe from the directors of football and it was turned down straight away.”
Brentford are three points adrift of the play-off places and the desire of the fans is to see this squad stay together for the next few months.

And Smith had positive news on that front at this juncture adding: “There have been no bids for anyone else.”

Hopefully it has unsettled the player before Saturday.

He will have a lot on his mind while he watches us pass the ball sideways from 50 yards away.

This pretty much sums up where we're at as a club

Fair enough. Looked a handy player, not that Aluko and latterly Barrow gave him many problems
