I tweeted him this:

Outstanding performance lads. 14 away games on the bounce and I won't make it 15. @gmccleary12 @Chrisgunter16 @pmacca15 #nofight #readingfc

After our drumming up at Preston in the play off season. I then sent these follow up tweets afterwards:
13 Mar 2017
Replying to @gmccleary12 and 2 others
I lied. Il be there.
17 Mar 2017
Replying to @gmccleary12 and 2 others
I know you don't care lads but I'm so oxf*rd glad I did. @JohnSwift8 @AliAlhabsi

Precious is definitely the best description as I'm still not sure why he blocked me for that. Especially as it was a few weeks later. :lol:

I found my last tweet to McCleary and I can see why he would have blocked me but I think he must be pretty precious to have done so.

It won't happen again? It's already happened several times this season already.

That would have been after the 7-1 defeat to Norwich and while I can't see his tweet I imagine it was one of those generic, "Poor performance away from home, won't happen again" tweets.

I guess blocking is the nearest thing to a frustrated "Oh oxf*rd off" as they are allowed on twitter. Which isn't necessarily about just that particular tweet, but all of the tweets, and everything else going on.

Blocking has always seemed idiotic to me, you'd get the same effect if you muted rather than blocked, and the person you muted wouldn't even know, so wouldn't be aware they'd got a reaction (I'm pretty sure some twidiots tweet stuff just to get blocked, so that they can then boast about being blocked)
But then, if I was a footballer, I would not have a public twitter account. Couldn't be arsed having to deal with all that shite.

Reading that Maddison is now supposedly a 2 horse race between Leeds and WBA...will be a good buy for whichever of these two get him...

Not even Spaculation. just good players that I hope we would be looking at.

Burnley have a glut of strikers/ attack minded players, whichever one comes up on loan we should be looking at. (Walters, Barnes, Wells)
Also I am surprised no one has gone for Akins of Burton yet he was there best player by far last year and can play Wing/AM/Wing back. at 29 he would not have a hefty price tag and could be a real coup. seems to be a real team player aswell.

I was thinking of Harry Arter from Bournemouth (to drive the midfield) and Nathan Dyer (to give us a two-winger attack) from Swansea but then remembered that we still have moderate/injured players on our books such as Edwards, Popa, Harriot ,Blackett and Meite so to use a Sir Stevism we might "go with what we have got" which regrettably IMHO is no great improvement on last season (assuming Moore goes somewhere).

Went to watch Swindon play Chelsea U21's in the EFL Trophy last night. (Chelsea won 4-0). Would be happy to have a fair few number of them on loan. Passing was quick and incisive. All of them appeared to possess pace. Apparently were about 25-30 scouts/managers in attendance as well. Playing style is based on Man City's. Enjoyable to watch.

Think it has been discussed on here already. Fee is 2.5m upfront. Rest is add-ons, unless we get promoted, I doubt we will ever pay 5m.

See hugill has gone to middlesboro

Suits Pulis perfectly that. Shame as I’d like to have seen him here but always unlikely to happen

Not heard a whisper on Moore going anywhere for weeks now. Did him and his agent just drop a massive bollok with that whole transfer request?

BHA appear not be offering enough money for any of their targets.

Apparently a medical underway at Hogwood. Either Fulton or Hause I would imagine.
