No it isn't.

Charles Watts put the effort in to build relationships at the club and was trusted. Players gave him interviews and information all the time.

Courtney Friday has put himself in the position of being universally hated by players and supporters alike because of his attitude and garbage writing.

So you can expect more from a local journo! The least you should be able to expect is professionalism.

Point conceded, wasn't taking in consideration how poisonous and bitter he is.
He clearly feels he has the given right to be included in everything behind the scenes because he is part of the local media. Then he throws a paddy when he doesn't go his way and slates everyone because he is kept in the dark. He then writes on social media how badly he is being treated and bitches about anything thats is going on around the local area. Think TVP will be giving him wide birth next time something happens.
It is really not that difficult to be polite. Common courtesy goes far. So on that basis we should be asking for a better journo.

To be honest, nothing shouts "Dont take me seriously" like filling your twitter feed with shit about Love Island.

By all means spout shit on twitter but have's separate work and private accounts.

Jonathan Low is off for a week. This means the only Reading FC related news will be coming from the Chuckle Brothers at the Chronic.

Courtney Friday professing to know Danny Loader is on "big wages".

Also mentioning him and Ryan Sessegnon in the same sentence.....

If anyone fancies a laugh read all his tweets from about 9:15 onwards. Bloke has not got a oxf*rd clue

Not sure whether he’s tweeting guesswork or something that is actually a rumour around the club.

Charles Watts was obviously always hard to match when he had Tevreden as one of his sources but seemingly the supposed lack of effort from our journos to try get any positive form of relationship with the club means they have to resort to guesswork

Well i assume he is on big wages compared to me. Or it could be seen as a dig that Danny earns more than him (wouldn't put it past him)
Unless he is our biggest earner, no one cares how much he is on FFS.

That wimpy guy who runs the Tilehurst End (runs it into the ground) appears to be working on behalf of Get Reading, retweeting their articles relentlessly etc. Possibly he is filling in for JLow whilst he's off.

No but I happen to know who is behind it. I used your process of elimination to narrow it down.

The Milky Bar Kid from the Tilehurst End has confirmed he is covering for Jonathan Low. Get Reading have found a way to make the public yearn for Jonathan Low.

They are laughable. Just waiting to hear from Courtney Friday's Greek source.
