RUMOUR - Marcus Maddison

by genome » 21 May 2018 11:25

Well, more than a rumour.

Peterborough's own chairman confirming that we have made contact:

Would be very pleased with this one.
Our playmakers, Kelly and Swift have both underperformed this season ( injuries haven't helped) so this player would be a welcome addition.

All for this one. Young, hungry player coming up a league and keen to impress. Should give Swift the kick up his backside he desperately needs.

Apparently he can take free kicks. That would be nice. Imagine not watching every free kick hit tamely into the box or overhit by a good 20 feet.
What position does he play? I'm reading mixed reports.

Actually all he has confirmed is that he has had contact with us and he said yes. He has not said which player or players we have been in contact about. So this isn't more than a more rumour at all, we could have been in contact about Marriott, or even both.

Incorrect, the initial tweet was a Leeds fan asking if anyone had come in for Maddison, to which a Reading fan asked him if we were one of the clubs.

That looks to me like Jamie Prior asked if he has had much interest in Maddison and McAnthony said yes. Jack has then asked "Any interest from Reading Darragh?".

I can't see where he replies to that.....

He quoted the tweet instead of directly replying.

Yes please. Think both him and Jack Marriott would actually be great business.

Would want to see a couple of Reading's current midfielders leave though to fully accommodate these rumoured changes.

You only get ITK point if he signs.

According to wiki he can play LB but mainly winger ... sounds like a good shout given Obita's injury problems.

I did also point out David meyler as a potential free transfer worth a punt first aswell but I don’t want to get ahead of myself. I think it’s a 2 horse race for Maddison between us and forest so. Fingers crossed

He’s since denied this, quoted a tweet from talkreading who said were definitely interested.

Oh well, I stand corrected then. Understandable considering the flow of the conversation though...

Wonder who the player is? Marriott?

Well he denied he explicitly stated it was Maddison. It might still have been Maddison he was referring to

Heard he got a real schooling in different positions by, er, Posh....out wide, in the middle, up top, lying deep, in behind, a false nine, etc. :)

Didn't see where he had ever played as a defender in a back 4 this season for them. Oh, and scored some penalties this season.

How much is this guy going to cost us?

Darragh MacAnthony is a master of extracting $$

If you read the original tweet he asks if he has "had much interest from Madddison". I reckon he's talking about Madison wanting complementary tickets for Steps.

OK, so now Barry Fry has waded in and said:

“Reading have shown an interest in Marcus Maddison, but they haven’t made a bid yet"
