The curious case of Reda Johnson’s age

Good cult figure , poor player.  Unusually for Wednesday he was also a crock . 

 

Iorfa is like a significantly upgraded graded version of him 

Was good for the time. We have moved onwards and upwards but he was solid in league 1 that was his level and he never let us down.

After the move from centre half to LB he was exactly what we needed in that team....

Should have built the England team around him.  Best player since well forever.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Should have been given a British passport soon as he kicked his first ball for Wednesday.

Surely he would qualify for Jamaica, with Jermaine Johnson being his father and all that?

Some great Reda memories. That last min goal at pridewank park to send the massive crazy in the sun

 

wiping out 3 blackburn players in one challenge right infront of me 

 

celebrating in the north after chrissy o’gradys header beat the pigs, REDA REDA sung loud and proud

 

the previously mentioned reda fan appearance at derby, takes off his leather jacket to unveil an Owls top

 

I miss my Reda

I don't think Reda Johnson was a great footballer but surprised he has not played for a league club for 3-4 years now. 

 

Because he's on a screw at Eastlieigh, bankrolled non league club.

Only Hooper and Forestieri in our current squad have a better goals-to-games ratio than Reda did.

 

Well, and now Iorfa, but I'm yet to be convinced that he's not just Reda in disguise.

Brilliant stat and some didn't rate him.

He was a truly awful defender, any time a player went past him (which was often) is only option was to pull them or their shirt, he would have been more suited to Rugby, Scored a few goals mind.

But i think the fact he hasn't played league football for years tells you all you need to know.

Blimey !!

Was immense for us at times. Virtually unstoppable on the ball and in the air. 

 

Can’t remember who it was against but I remember a game at Hillsborough, him cantering down the left with the ball from deep in our half and smashing one in. 

 

Also the gif of him, Dave Jones, Ryan Lowe and one other in the car was outstanding!

Reda, signed by Irvine, made by Megson.

For the time and in that team he made a great contribution.  How else should he be judged?

I don't think that's quite true, I think the reason he ended up there is because they were the highest-ranked club willing to offer him a contract that wasn't just pay-as-you-play.

Another brilliant Reda memory is the last league game he played for us - the 6-0 against Leeds at Hillsborough where he absolutely destroyed their winger and full back (Jimmy Kebé and Cameron Stewart) on his own. There was a moment when he just charged at Kebé down by the corner flag and ran him over like a fully-loaded wagon.

 

He pulled up in his next game against Macclesfield in the cup just before half time and I had a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach that we wouldn't see him again. It still saddens me that it was proved right.
