The People also reporting we're in for Harewood.

I was about to suggest that if he was available he'd be a great signing.

 

Why are AC Milan and Barcelona (and others ?) interested in Luca Neill ?!

Similar player to Shola.

 

On his day he's class, but is sometimes hopeless.

Similar in the way he scored 15 Premiership goals last season in a midtable team ? Or the way that he managed this whilst having decent competition for his place in the team and not just being played every week because everyone else was injured ? Or the way he can happily play out wide ?

Because other than the dubious penalty (he shouldn't have gone to ground anyway) he had a sensational WC, him and Craig Moore really held the line.

I've seen him several times int he Championship, and looked very ordinary at times.

 

There are several other players at that level we could get for cheaper, who could do a similar job than Harewood. IMO.

He'd be an excellent signing! Still young and has bags of potential.

 

Unfortunately I can't see him going anywhere unless Reading get relegated (which, looking at the fact they're trying to sign Whitehead from Sunderland is a possibility). At least not for a smaller fee. :(
