Reading boss Coppell rubbishes transfer windows
Reading boss Steve Coppell has slammed the transfer windows system.
"It is part of football now but it is an artificial construction that only creates a feeding frenzy among the media."
Coppell was also annoyed that the Hammers - who ironically are tomorrow's visitors to the Madejski Stadium - had made their bid for England international Nicky Shorey public.
He said: "I must admit I long to go back to the days when a phone call would be made and business was done in private."
