Rumour - Charlie Austin

by Divvy » 20 Jun 2013 22:24

GetReading's Charles Watts says he heard a whisper we were interested in Austin and apparently we have made our interest known.

Prem bound though I'd have thought.

Cheaper, younger than Hooper. Yes plss

On second thoughts, isn't it hard to sign someone without letting your interest known?

Yeah, but apparently he's off to Hull in the same tweet.

Here's his tweet:

"Heard a little whisper today of #readingfc interest in Charlie Austin. Hull very interested but Reading said to have made interest known."

would be pleased if this were true. i rate austin very highly. we could probably get him cheaper than hooper/rhodes and he would produce the same as either. also younger than hooper!

Apparently Austin has a taste for the white stuff. Not sure I'd want someone that stupid at the club. Shame if it's true, he could be a real talent if he had his head screwed on.

And he's always on the tiles according to their fans. Bit of a bad egg. Not one for us!

I've got a penchant for the white stuff, but I'm still a world class footballer. Ridiculous reason not to want him here

@SamuelDeCosta2 7m
Reading set to open negotiations with Burnley tomorrow over striker Charlie Austin after dropping their interest in Gary Hooper #Readingfc

He's probably not that reliable but maffff follows him, and maffff doesn't suffer fools gladly, so I'm intrigued. Plus the EP'snew guy said we'd spoken to Burnley..

You're writing him off based on what is likely a completely baseless rumour?

41 goals in his last 78 matches at Champ level, think he's 'real talent' regardless tbh

Hold, hold on, I am getting a bit confused here. So we are transferring Maffff in cos Charlie Austin follows him and thinks his a good egg?

I cannot believe this was not a bigger story, Beat the oxford out of some bloke who critized him for alledgedly getting on the white stuff in a Swindon nightclub!

So many things wrong in that story, assult, drugs and Swindon.

No thanks

I've heard this too, from a Swindon fan of my acquaintance. Bloke came in the loo and saw Austin snorting coke, challenged whether a pro-footballer should be doing that (rather than minding his own business), Austin lamped the bloke and claimed in court that he was in actual fact being harassed because of "who he is" :lol:

Sounds an absolute delight, doesn't he :|
