Re: New Manager

I have to say all this stuff about dodgy agents and random potuguese managers worries me.

What's going on? Is someone telling the owners that if they hire the person they recommend, and give them a few backhanders, that they'll be able to send a few superstars Reading's way?

Re: BFTG Rotherham

One thing about our fans yesterday.......despite it being the obvious season to sing it, I thought ‘5 Parkinsons’ was a bit risky yesterday........All it takes is some journo to say we were calling for Parky...... :wink: It was a lot better than some of the songs I had to endure. One about kicking ...

Re: BFTG Rotherham

I thought that Rotherham were poor - and that a Reading team with more confidence would have won the game without too much issue. But it was obvious to me from the start of the second half that we were going to concede; i'm not even that disappointed. It was an ok trip though - couple of good pubs, ...

Re: New Manager

Player power at many clubs invariably is disruptive and toxic, leading to poor performance and disharmony. Sound familiar? I'm not convinced that managers are always the problem, but they are always responsible! I agree. Given the value of players and the wages you have to pay, regardless of whethe...

Re: BFTG Sheffield

Just a mention that Sheffield Utds team that started the other night cost less than our defence that we fielded. Which I guess proves the point that if you have a good manager, with good knowledge of the lower leagues, good backroom staff, and more importantly a good scouting structure then you can...

I would like to see Loader playing as the main centre forward, McCleary behind him and McNulty back in League One . . . .

Re: Clement sacked!

I always believe in giving managers a chance, so i'm disappointed. I did say in another thread that we needed to get a reasonable amount of points in December for him to stay, so I can understand why it's better to not wait until then, but i'd rather a manager be given too long then not enough time....

Should they not give the pen to someone who had actually scored a goal in the last 6 months?

Can we not negotiate some deal where we keep the benefits of Clement, but are also allowed to sign deals with new managers?

Re: Clement

well Jokanovic sacked by Fulham as expected Definitely an option there if PC doesn't get a run going I don't know. I can't help but think that Jokanovic greatly benefited from inheriting a really decent crop of youngsters and had money behind him to build a team. Do we not have a decent crop of you...
