No updates from Smudger because he is in Portugal and his phone is "blocked". Not sure why or how.

Just for the record Reading Chronicle new recruit Jack Simpson is except from any harsh criticsm due to him having such a shit year so far and the fact he is new. He gets 6 months grace.

Has JLow got himself a source?

Seems to be ‘in the know’ on the transfer dealings inc the Moore bid which I haven’t seen anywhere else

*COURTNEY FRIDAY HAS GONE FREELANCE KLAXON*

How does he start this exciting new venture? By spouting some absolute bollocks about a Liam Moore exclusive that he cannot tell anyone about.

oxf*rd clown, just vanish.

I guarantee you it will be nothing of great interest, if it was big news then it would've broken already, such is the nature of information nowadays. Making people wait is just poor form

The bloke is such a freeloader. Bet you he will still use his Reading Chronicle pass to get into games.

Yep I saw this. I like Tom, he is hugely underrated and very understated and knowledgable too. You know like a real journalist.

Tom Crocker murked Courtney by posting Courtney's story? It's the same company pal - Courtney did the interview. Read the article, it's word for word the Reading Chronicle one, just repackaged for the Wokingham paper. They worked together..

All Tom did was tweet the article for his branch of the group of papers. Same as Smudger did. His tweet was just minutes earlier.

Don't think Tom was actually there for that interview (or all of it, at least).

I've been forthright with each of the papers and most of the journos over time. No allegiances here.

At least know what you're talking about if you're going to go on spouting shit mate. :roll:

Why would being a twat make Liam Kelly of all people block someone? Never has the phrase "takes one to know one" seemed more apt.
