Mooney set for exit

by LoyalRoyalFan » 04 Jan 2011 14:57

According to fellow Reading fans, Dave Mooney has stated on his twitter that he will not be returning to Reading after his loan spell finishes.

It finished yesterday and could be on his way to Colchester on a permanent basis. Colchester fans seem to rate him, as have other loan clubs, which makes you wonder whether he should have had a real try here.

That depends on if we bring in a striker in this window.If we do then no he can go! If we dont then yes we should give him a go.He would be worth a punt

I liked the look of him v Burton
but the fact is he's not prolific, even at a lower level

Totally agree Brendy!

I've seen him play a few times and I've not seen anything to make me think he deserved a chance above any of our other forwards.

He was here for several seasons and in all that time, no manager saw fit to really give him a chance.

or

he wasn't quite good enough

What give him a real try just because he is rated by League 1 fans?

Sensible thing to do would be to use him as leverage to get someone else.

Our only hope of getting Austin might be a player swap using Mooney as bait. He is proven at League 1 level and would be a replacement for Austin.

Bit of a shame imo, thought he could have provided us with the 4th striker we need, at least until the season. This season it seems as though he's continued on from last season's playoffs when i thought he was excellent and could become a decent Championship player. I'm guessing either the club or the player (or both) don't think its beneficial though to keep him on if he's going to struggle to be a starter for us.

To be honest, I would accept Austin and 400,000

Coppell brought him to Reading maybe he'll take him to Palace?

The Vital Football site says he's gone, no confirmation on the OS though:

Mooney signs for Col U

Royals striker David Mooney has left the Royals after 2 and a half years at the club and signed for Colchester United. The Irish striker was signed from Cork in the summer of 2008 by Steve Coppell but never made a league appearance for the club. He featured regularly in the Carling Cup though and scored twice in last season's fixture against Burton.

He has spent a lot of time out on loan at the likes of Norwich and Charlton. He spent the first half of this season at Colchester and his form there has convinced the U's to sign him on a permanent deal.

It's a shame to see a player leave who has never really been given a chance to prove himself at the club, especially considering the lack of strikers at the club in recent season's. Im not saying he would have scored the goals to get us promotion but he can consider himself very unlucky never to have got a chance.

I really find this odd, unless he's expensive or we really ARE buying a striker.



David Mooney 22 (2) appearances 4+5 = 9 Goals

Surely that's good enough for our 3rd/4th striker and he's DIFFERENT
