Cureton watch

by Jerry St Clair » 28 Sep 2013 20:23

Had the pleasure watching Curo come off the bench at Cheltenham today and dink the ball over the keeper in the last minute to win the game, before nonchalently jogging to the corner flag with his arms outstretched. Nostalgia.

He'd actually been out injured since the opening day, but he looked a class apart when he came on. The lad still has it.

He still had the 'knack' when he turned out for Exeter, which happens to be my nearest club worth visiting!

Bless Curo, scored on his debut and dislocated his shoulder in the process :cry:

Great to see him back now winning matches.

Some of my family work for Cheltenham so looking forward to getting down there later in the season for a bit of Curo time... It may be his last season?

My favourite ever Reading player. The first footballer I loved, and the man I always wanted to be.

Quality player and one of my favourite ever Reading players. Good to see him still doing well - he should be given a knighthood for that goal at Griffin Park.

STAR today presented Jamie Cureton with a certificate and star chart recording the fact that a star in the constellation "Perseus" has been named after him: "Jamie Cureton". STAR (Supporters Trust at Reading) is the new official supporters body and was looking for a unique way of launching the STAR name, and to honour Jamie's goal against Brentford that clinched promotion to Division One. A permanent fixture in the heavens seemed ideal. The constellation was chosen because Perseus was a Greek hero, and Reading FC has no greater hero at present than Jamie, already off to a great start and leading the First Division goalscorers already this season with six. The star was registered via the internet and a copy of the entry is deposited at The British Library.

Maybe Blackman should just stand on the goal line all game as well.

Poor Nick. Although I suppose it was always going to be hard for him to win over Hob Nob and the wider Reading fanbase given that he's both Black and Jewish.

According to Sky's man at the game today's special from Jamie was a 30 yarder.

Going back to the original point, were you trying to compare Cureton and Blackman in terms of contribution to Reading success?

No, I was referring to the fact that most of his goals were from inside the penalty box.

Not to say he didn't score some long range goals like the "dipper" against Burnley and the long shot against Brighton in his last season when we were chasing the game and he was more pre-occupied with his arms outstretched celebration rather than picking the ball up out of the net so we could kick off and try to get an equaliser.

As much as I didn't like him as a player it's obvious that he had a big contribution on our success over the last decade or so.
