'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Curo: It's Going to be Tough

Former Reading striker Jamie Cureton believes it might not be plain sailing for the Royals in the Championship.

Cureton, now plying his trade at Norwich, became a legend for the Royals, scoring 50 goals in just over 100 appearances between 2000-03 and he still has links at the club.

The prolific striker knows the Championship well and he feels it may be tougher for Reading than they expect.

He said, 'It`s one of those leagues where anyone can beat anyone on their day.

'It`s sometimes a bit of a shock (for relegated teams); you probably get less time on the ball than in the Prem and it`s a different type of football. It`s the team that`s the most consistent that normally goes up. That doesn`t necessarily mean the best team. Reading will be one of the favourites, but it doesn`t always work out that way.'

Cureton, had a star named after him by Reading fans, and sometimes I lay awake at night and gaze at it. He also admitted that Reading holds a special place in his heart.

He said, 'I was gutted they went down. They`re a team that is close to my heart. After Norwich, they were the first fixtures I looked for this season and I`m looking forward to going back to the club'.

Curo,Curo, he was great for us. But he is right, if Steve does not have the "elite" players available to him when we start the season, we could have a VERY long and uncomfortable season.

Its always going to be a tight Division this year. So many clubs have invested over the summer.
