NathStPaul Not even slightly shocked he has got a better job, he's extremely good at what he does.

Massive blow to the supporters who yet again have to rely on the feeble JLow.


A big loss. By far the best footballing journalist that we have had for ages. A very tough act to follow.

But, as you say, it was clear from day one that he was destined for much bigger and better things. I think the speed of that surprised him as much as us though!

great use of non-coterminous there from the Barnsley spokesman, not often you see that phrase used.

Elm Park Kid New guy - James Earnshaw

https://twitter.com/james_e1871


From a search of his twitter feed he is

a) just out of university so getting this job very early in his career; and

b) a Reading fan like any of us, who has shared plenty of frustrations on his tweets in recent years

So the question will be how much he’ll tow the party line, and hence be useless like JLow, and also given his young age and potential naivety, whether he’ll get any respect from within the club.

Good luck to him though! And I wonder want is HNA username is……

I see that Benjy moved to cover Southampton for their local paper down there.

Certainly comes across as though Jlow’s heart is no longer in it…just my opinion though!

See that the getreading site is ramping up for a month of no Reading news by giving two startling snippets of news.

1. That apparently it’ll be down to AC and his agent whether his deal is extended in January and
2. That Reading are going to trial giving opponent team news before a game - as if it’s nothing they’ve ever done before and obviously no other clubs in the league do it at some point before kick off

Wonder what we’ll be down to by the start of December.

To be fair on (2), it does appear that they are going to change the time at which the opposition team news is read out - so it is actually news. A tiny fragment of unimportant trivia, but never-the-less - brand new information!
