Courtney Friday writing one of the all time embarrassing Tweets about Joey Van Den Berg.

He liked Joey because he had a "short back and sides" haircut and because he "carried a Nivea bag".

Your constant girl bitching is what’s become embarrassing. Give it a rest will you. He’s just a young lad probably with a young family to support doing a job good, bad or otherwise, so what!

Calm down, Courtney. You turn in to a right diva when you're angry

Yeah he definitely has a lurking account here.

Poor "Smudger". He is so far behind the curve he's almost in 1997.

The fact they cant even get their fingers on the pulse for a low level signing like this shows you the status this organisation has in the eyes of Reading FC.

It's stuff like that, as well as the Love Island tweets that make it difficult to take him seriously as a professional journalist.

It's also things like "Smudger" and Courtney having veiled digs at the club for not releasing information to them. They both did it yesterday Re: the Sam Walker deal. The club cannot stand them and neither can the players. Wish the club would ban them to be honest.

The desperate plea to buy a paper highlighting old old news regarding Walker and Joey is very embarrassing.
Does anyone know why the club doesn't give them anything? (Other than the obvious that they are insufferable self interested journos)

tbf the club are pretty poor on the press front imo. Its not just the dynamic duo from the Chron, JLow who comes over as pretty inoffensive, struggles to get anything much either. The press conferences seem to be an absolute bare minimum.

Even Watts used to moan about it, but he managed to get a couple of decent sources from within the club

It would be nice for the club to open up a bit generally

In terms of why the club hate the chronicle boys, apart from the obvious, doing things like retweeting what may be the leaked pics of the kit isnt going to help their cause

If they were all proper journalists they'd have no problem.

Courtney has threatened to get the full story about the Liam Moore story later today. Can't wait for this.

Courtney Friday:

‘Small announcement. As of yesterday I resigned from my role. A difficult decision but one which will be a huge benefit to my career. Been a pleasure speaking to the vast majority of you. I hope to continue covering games to help out but will be far less active. It has been an absolute pleasure and I wish you all a far happier season than last year brought you. Stick together, back the team and most importantly enjoy yourselves. Sorry things haven’t always been perfect but did the best I could with limited time/resources’

Look what you lot done, big bunch’a bullies!
