Presumably this could be some sort of deterioration problem as he played 40 games last season, scoring 28 goals. Shame really.

:shock: I thought it was an on-going shoulder problem. 3 dislocations in his playing career.

Am I the only person who doesn't want Austin here? With the history at this club?

With his knee, it could be very soon he will be pissing off back to Poole

LoyalRoyalFan The Mail says we are interested.

Virtually the same story in the Star

"Reading are set to make a cut-price bid of £2.5m for Burnley striker Charlie Austin who failed a medical at Hull City this week."

maffff
Sir Dodger Royal SDR notes that all three CShip Clubs promoted to Premier League are showing real ambition. Unlike RFC who screwed up or I dropped downnnnnnnnnn. Clueless. Get it sorted Squeaky.
y.


Looking at these signings from a Dodgeresque perspective if they had come to Reading.

Palace, signed Gayle and Dobbie. One a striker from a team relegated to League One, another a player that has never excelled at premier league level.

Hull, signed Boyd, from a team relegated to League One, Figueroa, who was a regular in a team relegated to the Championship and MacGregor who has spent the majority of his career at a club that spent last season in the Scottish Division 3 and then away in the wastelands of Turkey.oxf*rd me if that's what you call ambition.

In Bridge, Drenthe and Williams [+ Pearce] I'd say that we've strengthened more than either of those clubs.

Cardiff, signed Cornelius, I'll give you that one. It might work, it might not. But as Dodger would say he's foreign and therefore useless. Real factsssssssssss



Are you smoking the same brand of crack as SnowbaLOL???

Shagger MacGregor may well have spent most of his career playing for a team who were in the 3rd divison last season. But they were not in the 3rd when he played for them they were in the SPL and champions league. It wasnt their football that relegated them it was their financial dealings. MacGregor is a superb goal keeper and I fully expect him to shine in the EPL this season. He is experienced in Champions League and is a full internationl. The fact that he plays full international for Scotland also means he gets a lot more practice than most goal keepers.

I reckon it's probs bollocks, but what are we saying about that? Too much of a gamble after a failed medical, or worth a punt at a pretty decent price? I'm IN for him getting the goals to get us up, and then never being able to walk again.

They really don't rate Alfie that highly, they reckon they could buy him for a million.
