Adkins - No Le Fondre issue

Reading manager Nigel Adkins says he has no problem with Adam Le Fondre and has hinted there is still a place for the striker in his plans.

Adam Le Fondre: Has been linked with move away from Reading

Le Fondre has started just once since Adkins took over at the club last month and was an unused substitute in last Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Norwich.

The 12-goal striker said after that match he was unsure where his future lies amid speculation linking him with Leeds, where former Reading boss Brian McDermott is now in charge, and newly-promoted Cardiff.

But Adkins says he has spoken with the 26-year-old over his situation and feels he could still have a part to play as relegation-threatened Reading face the prospect of plying their trade in the Championship next season.

The manager told the Daily Star: "I've had a good conversation about the whole situation with Alfie (Le Fondre).

"We like him a lot. I started him against Southampton and he came on against Liverpool.

"Maybe he could have come on against Norwich, but we were in a good position in the game.

"I think it is great that a player wants to play and if they can't start then they want to make an impact off the bench.

"That's great for me and that's what you want - people here fighting for the cause.

''I've got no issues at all with Alfie and he has been very professional in everything he's done."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
