Good job BM has done steadying the ship Genome
McDermott has done a great job this season. He has managed to get a sh*t team over the finish line with a number of games to spare.
It's not like we weren't sweating on our divisional survival last year. We are sh*t and most of us know we are. Some of us still think we have talented players. They are wrong.
Only they will be proved right when those talented players start to perform well at other clubs next season.
And a mark of the damage that the owners and all below them, including BM, have done is that some on here are now starting to say that McDermott will have done well for us if we avoid relegation next season!
I absolutely agree with you. Alot of damage has been done. Certainly by the previous owners. A little bit by the current owners, although perhaps unintentionally. I hope they genuinely have the clubs best interests at heart. I wouldn't include Brian McDermott in that. He has come in to try and fix things. To ludicrously expect that he can fix the mess of all that's gone on before him inside a few months is just nuts.
Hopefully the Thai's have learnt a few lessons themselves and will keep their Thai scouting network outside of team affairs. Let Brian select and mould a side in his own image. I hope they back him financially so that he can do that. As soon as you start giving him players that he doesn't really want like the Pog and Guthrie, Rakels, things start to go wrong.
Anton gave players that were not typical Reading players. The Thai's the same. Let Brian decide. He knows what he is trying to build. I hope the Thai's have learnt not to stick their beak in.
