You do realise this move would guarantee the entry of both Coronavirus and Ebola to our squad?

Mr Timbe has already been working and training with the Royals for the last couple of weeks so might possibly be involved tomorrow night if the deal is done.

Any chance this is a swap with Aluko deal?

The Reading FC Facebook page appears to have been hijacked by Kenyans.

That literally makes no oxf*rd sense. None of the lines match up with the track you're proposing. How is "Ayub Timbe" matched with "And I need more time"?

Problem is Renhe got relegated. If they'd stayed in the top league, I suspect Aluko may have been open to it. Not now.

Although I guess there are other factors which might make him think twice about going back to China :?

Interesting one, will give us a different option. And presumably a simple signing to make if he’s any good

My favourite thing about this transfer is that we now have the backing of the whole of Kenya. Great bunch of lads.

Few thoughts based on that.
1 cracking strike around 50 seconds in.
2 lots of tap ins
3 got a header
4 he got a lot of time, space and not much physical stuff, so he'll need to adapt in the Chump
5 tidy and calm finishing mostly
6 how the oxf*rd did Aluku not piss all over that league. He really is shit.

I mean yea...he does look pretty good in that video. A range of goals & very pacy...will certainly add something different. But then...Paulo Hurtado looked brilliant on YouTube too!

Agree time and space will be the difference, easy to look good is a crap league, but he does seem to show some composure and certainly pace. Given he’s been on trial, the club obviously think there’s something about him worth having. If he’s any good, and Barrow came back, that would be two extremely pacy wingers.
