Our youth is promising, but we can't rely on them alone, .
I didn't say we should or would.
RoyalCrisp I wouldn't call our approach technical at the moment, I've never seen a Reading team look less like scoring every week. You'd rather we played long ball and put the ball in the net wouldn't you?
No not really. I don't expect us to play like Brazil, but I do want to be entertained and enjoy the football, as well as the result. Especially seeing as long term success is more likely to occur playing better football, providing we play it well. If McDermott can succeed where Adkins and Clarke failed and get a more measured and technical approach to work that'd be ideal. He seems to be trying for that so far.
People forget too often that playing a system badly, doesn't make the system bad.
I said we couldn't do much worse. I stand by that. Relegation really wouldn't be a whole lot worse. At least we'd have the opportunity to look forward to being a bigger fish in a smaller pond and having a better shout at a good season and promotion campaign. And a greater chance for the youth to shine and develop.RoyalCrisp Of course we can do worse than the last 2-3 seasons, reckon a few Villa or Charlton fans might've said that about their last few seasons. Can't be complacent about relegation when we've had 2 seasons as poor as we've had. We're not going to get a Blackpool or a Bolton every year.
