    Dan McDonnell was at the game and tweeted that Kelly was a lovely player.

    Quinn, McShane and Kelly at Reading so you would have to root for them in the Playoffs, though I imagine that Quinn will be moved on.

    Jaap Stam hinted that Josh Barrett won't be awarded a new contract.

    Can't see either Quinn or McShane holding their own in the top flight. Kelly on the other hand is quite a player, although he too may struggle if Reading don't buy wisely and bolster the squad, assuming of course they make the Premier League.

    Came across this earlier when trying to find out why he's not in the Reading squad today (illness).

    Steven Reid was discussing Kelly and all things Reading on Newstalk earlier as well, didn't even know he was a first team coach there.

    Came on for the last fifteen minutes of Reading's 1-0 playoff semi final win over Fulham (agg. 2-1). Hopefully he might get a start at Wembley.

    A reel of some of Liam Kelly's highlights for Reading and Bath over the last few years:



    Looks very exciting.

    Lovely technique on those free kicks, one step and whip.

    10? Would love to see him in a deep lying playmaker role, personally. Would be interesting to see us deploying one. We often discuss the impact Wes has when retaining the ball for us in a more advanced role. It would be nice to see the impact Kelly could have deeper.

    I think 10 because Wes is 34 and its clear we need someone to create chance for our strikers

    If he's playing deeper for club why shoehorn him into 10? Wes is 34 but there will surely be a natural cycle whereby another 10 comes around. Alan Judge next season?

    why shoehorn him into 10? because our player pool unfortunately leaves us in a position where we have to compromise. I would be delighted if Judge turns out to be a great 10 or anyone else for that matter. but we need a guy ahead of the mid-field, no question

    I don't think it would be fair to put a young fella into an unfamiliar role straight off in international ball, if it goes badly it could set him back. Play him where he earned the call up from, and in time maybe assess what else he might offer when he has found his feet and is at home in the environment.

    Ideally yes i hear you. But its a friendly and we do have McCarthy, Arter who can play that role for years to come. I just don't want our number 10 position to turn into the situation we find ourselves in now with the strikers, also from what I've seen (albeit highlights and one game)he looks perfect for it

    I agree with you, he does appear to have that string to his bow from the bits I have seen but not to load it onto him so early. There will be other friendlies.

    I haven't seen much of him but in his cameo against Fulham he seemed to take up a fairly advanced position. If you're comfortable on the ball you're comfortable on the ball.

    Linked with Swansea.

    Leon Britton is getting a new contract, but he's in his mid-thirties, so I don't see how that would affect Swansea's interest if it's genuine.

    This lad really is an inspiration to us all hoping to still make it. No way he was on anyones radar to break through last summer. I assumed he was going to be released. Well done sir

    I'd say there is a big chance that would have happened. He was on loan end of last season with bath city the level below the conference as a 20 year old. It's a long way back
