Fulham After Harrison Reed
Thursday, 8th Aug 2019 11:22
Fulham are reported as being in line to sign Harrison Reed on a deadline day deal according to the media.
The 24-year-old has attracted interest from several Championship clubs including Blackburn with whom he spent last season on loan, but Fulham are currently leading the chase to sign him, with Scott Parker keen to strengthen his midfield options before the transfer deadline.
Reed is a very good player at Championship level and he’s got plenty of experience in that division having spent the past two seasons on loan firstly at Norwich and then at Blackburn.
A popular player amongst Saints supporters despite having played relatively few games for the club, he probably isn’t going to get much of a chance for Saints in the Premier League this season if he stayed, so now might finally be the time for him to leave St Mary’s on a permanent deal.
Fulham would be a good fit for him in that being one of the promotion favourites he could make a swift return to the Premier league, although it has been almost 2 1/2 years since his last appearance in a Saints shirt and with only 6 starts and another 11 as sub during his time at the club it is probably fair to say he is not going to make the breakthrough at St Mary's and needs to move.

Matches of Yesteryear - Wycombe v U's 23/3/02 by wessex_exile
Ahead of another vital match in our bid for promotion back to League 1, this time at t’other St James’ Park in Devon, we return to our previous spell at that level, and dip again into one of the odder football rivalries (given that over 100 miles separates us from them).
Matches of Yesteryear Special - U's v Bradford City 30/12/61 by wessex_exile
This one is a special for the Matches of Yesteryear series, as we step slightly outside the original concept of blogs related to my football memorabilia collection. I am delighted that our very own pwrightsknees approached me with an absolutely fantastic idea just before Christmas, and an idea that really deserves this specific slot in our football calendar. It is also particularly appropriate given the terrible coincidence that Martyn King sadly passed on Christmas Day, the all-time record league goal-scorer for the U’s with 130 goals (1959-64).
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Lincoln 27/10/18 by wessex_exile
Firstly, my apologies that this is a bit later than usual – it’s been a pretty hectic week at work, and by the time I got home last night, I was ready for a few beers and not a lot more. As we approach a vital double-header at home for the U’s promotion challenge, and on 12 games unbeaten, we come right up to date with an equally vital home game from last season.
Matches of Yesteryear - Cheltenham v U's 22/2/03 by wessex_exile
The U’s travel to the Globe Arena tomorrow, aiming at the very least to keep the unbeaten run going – though in truth after three somewhat disappointing draws against Exeter, Crawley and Stevenage, surely nothing less than three points is acceptable? Ahead of this trip, the Matches of Yesteryear random number generator has chosen a match which for me has a particularly bitter-sweet poignancy.
