Thoughts? Mainly that our transfer policy is appalling if true

Just cause he's shit, old and Irish doesn't mean we're necessarily signing him....does it?

His career isn't dead yet and it's a miscarriage to suggest otherwise.

A throw away line about him being ‘linked with Reading’ is utterly meaningless

Hasn't this just come about from Twitter. Bolton are in prime position to sign him and a few people joked about us coming in for him. Not sure there is any truth in this one.

That means absolutely nothing I'm afraid. My Grandmother who is old, has never lived in England, doesn't know where Reading is or even if it has a football team knows more about transfer new than him.

I did half suspect that to be the case. Apologies for not being up to speed, I should have taken a "re-joining HobNob course" or something.

I reckon there is a fair chance he will go in with a broadsheet newspaper with eye holes cut out. Cutting edge surveillance at the Chronicle.

No need to apologise! You came in with an excellent swipe directed at Courtney Friday. You've joined the party.

Nah, he's running down to Starbucks for the free WiFi. Bung in free refills and he's set for an afternoon of cat videos on YouTube before the school run.

He's probably sulking cos the Chronicle had their best man Friday on the Oracle Live updates yesterday*

*LOL @ Friday whining yesterday about the police being "uncooperative" with him.
