Reading are reportedly close to naming former Southampton boss Nigel Adkins as their new manager.
Adkins, who was dismissed by Saints in January after a three-year stint at St Mary's, is expected to take over at the Madejski Stadium ahead of Saturday's Premier League match at Arsenal.
Not quick enough to play on the wing, not defensively sound enough to play left-back, Aleksandar Kolarov needs to reinvent himself after last night's 2-0 defeat to Croatia.
Two seasons into his Newcastle career, Owen managed 12 games for England but only 14 for the club who by that point had already shelled out over £27million on him.
But there is another area which must be dealt with that has dogged the club for several years, but, thankfully seen fortune smile upon them so far. That is the problem of Petr Cech's understudy.
So who are the players in good scoring form? Do you drop a van Persie or a Mata?

I'm fascinated by this story and hope Sakho finds himself in the Premier League - or at least settled and starting - next season.
