Championship Q & A: Reading

Steve Guscott from Vital Reading answers our questions ahead of the Championship 2009/2010 season.

1. Your name and Club Supported

Steve, Reading

2. Your League Position last season

4th

3. Your Prediction For this Season's Position Finish

13th (Unlucky for some!)

4. Transfers In

Ryan Bertrand (Loan)

5. Transfer Out

Kevin Doyle, Marcus Hahnemann, Graeme Murty, Leroy Lita, Michael Duberry

6. Have you made enough signings for the new season? Are they the right signings?

Only Ryan Bertrand in so far, he gives us more depth to the defence on the left hand side and is highly rated but we are in urgent need of a striker and a centre back.

7. What are the expectations amongst the fans for this year?

Many think this will be a year of transition and will happily settle for a mid table finish if we some of the younger , home grown, players in the team.

8. Key player(s)

Marek Matejovsky will be playing in a formation that suits him and will have a license to sit in the free role in midfield. We could finally see the best of him.

9. Your thoughts ahead of the new Championship campaign, are you confident or worried going into the new season? How do you think your year will pan out?

I'm neither confident,or worried to be honest. New manager and a new era at the Madejski Stadium and I am looking forward to seeing a squad made up of a lot of young players, but do not expect them to mount a promotion charge.

10. Predict the Top 2 and Play-off winner and the 3 clubs to go down

Top 2 - West Brom and Middlesbrough in no particular order. Sheff Utd to win the play offs with Barnsley, Blackpool and Newcastle to go down!!

Thanks to Steve for answering our questions.
