    I take it Sledge has no tats?
    I don't think Ward has any.
    Glen Whelan has,
    Keith Andrews hasn't

    I will start a thread
    So that's where you had your spas out.
    DID YOU NOTICE A SIGN OUTSIDE MY HOUSE...?

    Peer pressure isn't it?

    I once got friendly with this guy I used to see in the bookmakers and he had a lot of tattoos, he asked
    me if I had any and I said no, then he said why not, so I had to think up excuses for why I didn't have any,
    and of course they had to be excuses which did not offend him!!!
    Boy was that tricky!! Every time I thought up one he would kind of knock it
    down so I had to think up another again without offending him!

    "I have a skin condition which makes me allergic to needles"
    "I am a Jehova's witness"..

    Wish I had thought of those at the time, I think I ended up saying I thought it would affect my employment prospects

    Dunno if that went down too well.

    How about "I don't want one"?

    In that article he says how great it was to score a goal "for the Irish". I don't like that.

    Lets not pretend we haven't had many proxy Irish play for us over the years and continue to play for us these days. Just because others hide it better doesn't make it better. It's either an all in or all out kind of thing as far as I'm concerned.

    Ian Harte is back too. Amazing what your team mates being thumped for five goals will do for your chances of getting back in a side.

    Reading unlucky to lose to a late goal which they dispute, they also think they should have had a penalty.

    Pearce got a good rating, Harte not so good, however he was off the pitch when Man City scored.

    I recall a few weeks back where Garth Crooks had Hugo Lloris in his team of the week, even though he hadn't faced a shot on target for the whole game.

    His mere presence was enough to scare the opposition into not shooting?

    Pearce urged to come to some sort of compromise with Reading over a new contract/wages by McDermott...

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/20901837

    This seems to have been going on for a while now thought it was sorted and thats why he was back in the team.

    I'd imagine at this stage he's holding out more in hope of a move to a team that won't get relegated.

    Indeed but I haven't heard of any clubs showing any interest in him apart from Liverpool and that seems a bit tenuous one.

    Yeah but worst comes to worst, nobody wants him and he can re-sign with Reading, but I think he is a prospect other managers will take notice of.
