All charges to be dropped when they realise he's just shite.

Seems mainly focused on stuff such as yellow cards bets. I think Reading will exercise the right to terminate his contract if he’s found guilty fairly shortly...

Be a neat way of terminating his contract penalty free.

Good, gives us the opportunity to get him off the books with a gross misconduct charge, this can only be a good thing for the club.

Yep if true his contract can be canx and it’s a wage off the books.

I think you missed out the word `alleged` out of the thread title.

oxf*rd hell chaps.

Let's all have a party because one of our players is allegedly suspected of match fixing so we can sack him and get him off the wage budget easier?

Don't try too hard to hide your feelings.

That's cold.

Why? If he has been up to no good and breached his contract he can have no complaints if he’s sacked.

It's more that it comes across as being gleeful at getting rid of him more than upset at what he may have done.

Don’t disagree. Puts a slight downer on the clubs reputation too if it’s handled badly.

Yeah fair point.

I don't think anyone can comment until we know the verdict. It's just talk now.

If he's definitely guilty though yes of course we'll have every right to get rid and while we shouldn't be gleeful at someone hitting such a low they feel they have to break the law, the (cold) honest fact is it would work out nicely for us financially. Can't just ignore that.

Very little of what he ‘may have done’ will be at our expense though given the lack of playing time. He’s also on a Gourlay contract, so this should actually be seen as a good and unexpected bonus from a financial point of view

I think I'd rather wait until he's found guilty before I join in with any joy at bundling him out of the club.

Purely from a cold business point of view it wouldn’t be bad for Reading

But there’s a lot more behind the story. Sounds like if he’s found guilty he’s done something very stupid and regrettable and could break his career. And also what’s driven him to do that? Very sad
