see JLows getting his stuff on at that football.london site that Charles Watts disappeared over

Seems Reading have their own page, despite clearly not being in London.

I wonder if he gets paid as a freelancer for this site and the championship news site as well, or getreading are in on the deal...

Courtney "Courts" Friday adament that Jem Karacan will not be signing for Oxford because he is Reading through and through. Says it is "highly unlikely".

Cannot wait for this one to come back to bite him, will be glorious.

Yes, it's all Trinity Mirror.

Having looked at the banner at the top of the page, I'm amused to see that Chelsea, Arsenal, West Ham etc each have their own "button", but poor old Fulham is tucked away under "Premier League" along with Watford. Perhaps a bit of a statement there about relative importance, or likelihood of sticking around in the PL...

All of the other London clubs (including Reading, boo hiss) are under the Football League dropdown

i actually quite like the site. Its pretty readable and easy to navigate. And JLow has quietly become quite decent.

Noted on Fulham and Watford - yep that is a nice touch. I suppose at least with Watford there, we aren't the only non-London club on it

I think there should be 2 minutes silence to mourn what the Evening Post has finally become.

From the days when papers has some semblance of something worth reading in them...

I used to deliver that paper! Used to love reading our match reports in it every Monday. Sad how times have changed.

The guy is a joke. I don't agree with constant abuse and criticism of people just doing their job, but it's basically impossible not to get wound up be the sheer stupidity of the guy. There's basically no effort to even pretend to be or act like an actual journalist. It's just utter nonsense, the type of thing one of the 16 year olds within Y25 would blurt out when drunk on their 2nd lager down at the Walkabout.

He's the most hated "journalist" of all time. He stalks the board btw so be prepared for a response.

Hey Courtney (nice name), you're a complete oxf*rd.

If he is reading and stalking the board then:

I'd love to see you succeed
I'm sure you're ambitious, you have goals and aspirations
I know nothing about journalism but it does seem like your tweets are off key
They're more like a random fan firing off thoughts than thought out facts ... or even thought out speculation

That's why I blocked you as it was just garbage and I feel it discredits actual news outlets.

It also distracts from potential real stories as the "noise" from your waffle and nothingness tweets just gets in the way

So, There we are. I don't know you, I wish you well, I just wish you'd change the way you promote yourself and readingfc "news"

Good luck

Have to say the pointing people to his twitter feed, then writing crap about love island etc isn’t particularly professional

Anyway bit bored of the whole debate now. Bit like the team hoping to see better all round this year - CFs stuff around the preseason and presser were pretty good, hopefully that can be continued along with JLows half decent new pages and content

I feel like he is being like Charles Watts is now with his Arsenal reporting. Just giving teaser information in the tweets to get people to visit the site and read the full articles.

Seems to be working because people in the thread are visiting the site so hopefully he keeps up the good work

Courtney Friday suggesting that Brighton signing a player could "pave the way" for Baldock to join us but in the same Tweet point out Brighton's new signing is immediately going out on loan making his earlier statement null and void.
