Rumour - Johnny Russell

by John Smith » 28 Jul 2017 10:33

With a plethora of riches to choose from, not least Nick Blackman and Matej Vydra, Derby forward Johnny Russell is looking for first team opportunities in Berkshire with the Royals.

Available for £4.5m, he would become the record signing. Would you all be happy with this?

He's not really great at the old goal scoring is he.

Presume this is just idle speculation rather than a rumour, Russell is player you like to have in your team as he's the type that makes a complete nuisance of himself all over the place. He's also the type of forward that should appeal to Reading in that he is on a run of 1 goal every 21 games (it's actually 1 in 4 over his league careers both and south of the border).

I don't think we should be signing players from Derby right now

Steve Brown for me.

All about the one syllable names.

I think the first name has to end in an 'i.e.' or 'y' to be honest. Ideally with a one syllable surname

such as Dixie Dean, Jimmy Greaves, Tommy Smith etc

George Evans is prob the best proper footballer we have I reckon. John Swift isn't too bad a name, but he is far too coiffured

I think you're barking up the wrong tree here.
