Jobi McAnuff – the poor man’s Tommy Smith – has joined Reading for an undisclosed fee (that the W`Observer reckon is a brilliant £500k) in a move that is expected to save the Hornets more than £600k in wages!

So, that`s why he`s failed to track back for 3 seasons, or put in a tackle and generally look lethargic? he`s laden down under the weight of his weekly wage packet tucked in his shorts!

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.

A quick look on the medding Reading Evening Post message board tells it`s own tale.

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?.
