Liverpool's Tony Rougier.

Would still piss all over any player we've ever had at Reading, mind you.

Wouldn't happen, anyway, his wages would be too high.

Times ran this yesterday, saying he'd been offered to us and Swansea. Don't think he's a Reading-type player but still wouldn't mind seeing him here

Why did they release him? He can't be any older than 25? Has he suffered with injury?

The 25-year-old was demoted to the reserves earlier this summer after head coach Markus Babbel voiced his dismay with the attacker's attitude in training, and he has now been given the freedom to find a new club.

On the 15th August it was apparently "in its final stages".......im guessing it fell through, hence why Hoff have now given him the boot

My friend who is a season ticket holder at Anfield once described him as Jimmy Kebe without the really good games

True story: I was on a minibus with a guy who works for Wolves Academy who met Ryan Babel in a hotel and was awe-struck. Kevin Doyle???

I hope not.

Ryan Babel - Rumour

by Royal Rads » 05 Jun 2013 06:19

Just stumbled across this article saying we may be after him, would be excellent signing if true imo.

That article (from March) says that the transfer probably won't happen if Reading are relegated.
