Well he ain't going to do any worse than the useless Rondon is he? Because he ain't exactly banging them in is he?
like the rest of the strikeforce then, at least he puts himself about and tries, if the rest of them put as much effort in we might not be in this mess.

blokes not good enough for championship never mind prem, another cracking signing by Hammond the muppet

I had never made the Hammond, R-Kanu, Pardew - Reading connection of all 4 before (3 of these I recognised but had not linked Robson Kanu as well) - interesting.
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !

Not hard to see it's a fall-back position, both Pardew & HRK.

HRK caused by a HC who liked to play a brinkmanship game, & Pardew from a fire first then lets see who's available position by the board.

A bit "alligators & lakes" IMO.

If he put his chances away we wouldn't be in this mess either.

If there is a Premier League manager that asks their board to sign HRK, they should be sacked on the spot.

We got him on a free right?
How long does he have left on his contract?
So if we sell him how much would we get for him do you think?
Whatever,we will actually make money on a failure,happy days.

His signing on fee would have been quite high though. Available on a free on the back of the form of his life in the Euro's.

He signed a new 3 years contract with us in last summer.
To be honest I don't mind to let him go for free, as I don't think he can score many goals even in championship.
Of course it would be a great deal for us if any club spend €3m on him.  ;D

You know, I would entirely agree with the sentiment, it would be happy days if it weren’t for the fact that signing sub-standard squad fillers like him is a major contributing factor to us being where we are.

We make money on that individual deal and lose far more by dropping a division.

There’s always that one player every now and again that gets decent move after decent move without warranting it.

Remember Andy McDermott having a trial with Juventus?

It didn't last long but fair play to his agent for jacking that one up  ;D .

Would be delighted if we got 2.6 million for him! living off that Cruyff turn in the euros. Was a decent free for us to be fair to him and scored a couple of important goals but he wont be a first teamer next season, would rather promote one of the academy kids to the bench.

I remember that. Those at Juve must've hospitalised themselves laughing when they saw McDermott trying to play football.

I've know people make stupid signings off the back of one tournament, I've never known people make a stupid signing off the back of one goal - which is exactly what we did here. Mind you, helped that his mate was technical director.

If this lad gets to play top flight football in Azerbaijan he should crawl across broken glass for it. He's not good enough for the Championship, let alone any higher. His time at Reading confirms that.

Not very good, but credit to him, he never gave up, unlike some.

Interesting stat: In the Championship he has never scored more than 5 league goals per season  :o

As said, he's not brilliant but if we can get some money for him then it would be ideal. I can see him moving abroad as opposed to the Premier League.

He's rubbish. I said it when we signed him and stick by it, the bloke is around League One standard, it's why he was sat On the bench of a poor Reading team in the season before we signed him.

He scored an absolute worldie for us against Southampton, but he only took the shot on from there because he knew he is slower than erosion and wouldn't get any further past the defender to get closer to goal. Would love to see us sell him even if it left us slightly short on numbers. With the new contract I am assuming he is on somewhere in the region of £30k per week? Ridiculous amount to be paying someone of that...ability.
