Re: New Manager

Clubs get criticised for having some "lined up" as it means you are recruiting for a position whilst someone is still in the job. Yes it goes on, but it is isn't looked upon as an ethical thing to do. Yes you can put "feelers" out there to see if certain people might be interest...

Re: New Manager

Suppose a lot is to do with who we bring in I’d happily wait a month if it meant Jokanovic coming in at the end of it We could lose all of our games and be cut adrift by then! Too late. We should have had someone lined up and signed, poor planning. If only life was that simple.... Clement was Gourl...

Re: Slavisa Jokanovic

Theroyalbox Why have we called him out so early, I was looking forward to seeing what Jokanovicfan brought to AE


I can't see it getting any better than having a Reading supporter tweet journalists and report that Jokanovic is coming based purely from a post in the rumours section on HNA.

So he's a yes man who won't kick up a fuss regardless of what state the club is in?

Think it's becoming clear why he has the job back.


Completely different circumstances now.

If you say so

Re: New Manager

It was, of course, a little tongue in cheek. However, if you think the CEO won't have been heavily involved in decisions such as taking on the Vibrac loan then I think there's a little bit of ostrich behaviour going on. Of course we've all enjoyed using Samuelson and Zingarevich as the scapegoats f...

Re: New Manager

This kind of shit really winds me up. Nigel Howe is an absolute titan of of a businessman and I won't hear a word against him. I mean, it's not like we were on the brink of administration during his last tenure as CEO.... :? Because that was his fault :| It was, of course, a little tongue in cheek....

Big Sam=no comp, and he’d get slackers, attitudes, egos, fitness, etc, addressed in short order. Again, not #1 fan, but if staying up is #1 priority, I’d back him (or Steve Bruce) to do it. No club connection, wouldn’t be fan fav’s. Thought that might be consideration, but doesn’t appear to be anyw...

Re: Slavisa Jokanovic

I'm not a Reading fan, but I come in peace :D . I am from Serbia and I am a big fan of Jokanovic. Media here in Serbia are now reporting that he is set to join your club, so I wanted to tell you what you should expect from him, if he indeed comes to your club. 1. He always started the season slowly...

John Smith Fantastic from the owners but couldn't care less about this game. Play the kids.


Imagine how many supporters will be there just for a "day out" John. Bet it turns your stomach.

Re: New Manager

Simon's Church It took 2 days after Stan was sacked for us to appoint Clement. It's now been a week with no manager and the rumours are we still don't have a shortlist.

Glad that we finally have a competent CEO in charge.


Stan Ternent?

Tbf sure there are teams in a far better position than us who would be a more attractive proposition for Jokanovic No doubts was given a hefty pay off as well, so no need to rush back.

Quite a good beard to be fair. OMA, if you were a manager would you be suit, tracksuit, bench coat, polo or other? Fantastic question John, thats why you are one of my favourites.
