Re: The very latest in Clement In/Out Polls

In - but its a 60/40 decision Was not a fan of the appointment, but he seems to have identified the issue with this group is down to mindset and attitude rather than raw talent.

Re: The very latest in Clement In/Out Polls

Ascot, you think a new manager will do better in a January window than Clement? A new manager will come in clueless about this team and will spend the next 6 months finding out about them all. Clement has already been through that process of learning about this bunch of players and knows better tha...

Re: The very latest in Clement In/Out Polls

Definitely IN for me. Nobody understands the problems better than Clement. Clement knows what the issues are and I'm confident he will find the solutions. He has shown great leadership so far. Yes results haven't been fantastic but a lot of improvement needs to be made in so many areas before we can...

Re: BFTG - Ipshit H

Perhaps that is why there are four teams below us! Our league position is largely down to our dire (and slightly unlucky) start with just two points from six games. since then we have W4 D2 L5 = 14 points from 11 which translates to a 46 game haul of 58.5 or mid-table. The opening game v Derby was ...

Re: BFTG - Ipshit H

The most important thing that Clement has done for us is he has brought the fun back to watching Reading FC. These high scoring, end to end, exiting games of football are making watching Reading an enjoyable experience once again. The fact that we are competitive and giving as good as we get is also...

Re: BFTG - Ipshit H

Very poor from us in the first half. But a big improvement in the second. In the end, I was happy to grab a point from this game. It would have been bad news to lose at home again and allow Ipswich within two points of us. In the context of everything a point is actually a good result and I came out...

Re: Clement

Recently as well, Clement has dropped Tiago. There is no way Tiago would have ever got near to a Coppell first eleven. He is a lovely footballer and good on the ball. But he makes too many mistakes in key areas and isn't an aggressive all action defender. First and foremost a centre back should be a...

Re: Clement

The same people moaning about results now are also the same people that were moaning under Stam even when we won because the football wasn't great. Under the circumstances, Clement isn't doing a bad job, barring a couple of games, we're creating opportunities and scoring goals and as soon as Eza co...

Re: Clement

Clement needs time and a fair crack. Little point in churning managers. A period of stability is what's required. I totally agree. What difference would a new manager really make? Especially one of the calibre we are likely to attract? What do you seriously think Clement can do when his hands are e...

Re: BFTG Birmingham (A)

I was there and I can't say I have been impressed with our performance. They worked hard to get a result against Millwall but I don't think there was enough desire on show tonight. They were going through the motions. They work hard for 45 minutes and predictably don't turn up for the second half. T...

Re: On this day

Funny, I look at the team from that day and see a lot of similarities in terms of the problems we have now. Individually just about every player there was decent (for that level at least) aside from maybe Glasgow (even Maybury went on to have a good career elsewhere), yet together they were mediocr...

Re: Solutions to problems (instead of moaning)

Don't you think we are under threat of relegation? No one gets relegated in October. Of course they don't but we have all seen with our own eyes how dreadful we are this season, particularly at home, and with the poor points tally earned so far it is probably going to take mid-table form for the re...

Re: Solutions to problems (instead of moaning)

Of course we are under threat from relegation but we have been in that position last season ans this season. A manager needs to be given a chance to spend time with his players, work with them and move them on if they are unable or unwilling to perform. The players need to be in fear for their jobs ...

Re: BFTG West Brom

The late, great Bill Shankly always said that before signing a player he wanted to know as much about him and his character as he could discover. He said that anybody could see a player's ability on the pitch so there was nothing difficult in spotting a good player but it was so important to know m...

Re: BFTG West Brom

Also West Brom gave us a lesson in ruthless, efficient, clinical attacking play. They come forward with speed and players like Dwight Gayle, Harvey Barnes and Jay Rodriguez absolutely busting a gut to get in the box and get on the end of things. Gayle seems to have a real knack of being in the righ...
