Royals snap up 2nd choice Jobi

Sir John Madjeski said the capture of McAnuff was 'goods news for the club' but we`re not sure whether he was talking about Reading or Watford…

Failed goalkeeper, turned rubbish negotiator, Nicky Hammond stated Jobi is 'an old fashioned type of winger' and 'a creative force' - figures stacked up by the fact that in 92 games for Watford, McAnuff managed a mere 5 goals

Blimey, that`s 'creative` - no wonder Brendan Who reckons he's a 'big talent'!!!!

Glory Hornet boys up and down the land are already rejoicing Jobi`s departure…and it seems fans of those right Royal berks down the M4 aren`t particularly keen on their new signing either.

Plenty of people suggesting Brendan Who? can`t look any further than Watford`s cast offs whilst one particularly uninspired fan stating 'It`s like going from buying at John Lewis to going down the local car boot to see what bargains we can pick up….

Tommy Smith he ain`t….
