Snowflake Royal At the beginning of the month it would have been inconceivable that Stam wouldn't be Reading manager in February. Whilst it's way too early to say he should go, there's a palpable feel of the tide turning tonight and right now it feels inevitable that there's going to be a sustained run of poor results that lead to his eventual exit.
The next few games look hard. And Stam's comments have eroded the willingness of many fans to accept any poor performance. There's a lot of pressure coming up. And we know the team buckled under the ultimate pressure last season. The players need to stand up for Stam and put in performances. They need to take the initiative and play with instinct and intelligence. He can't play the match for them and they simply aren't doing well enough, not helped by his selection choices and over-emphasis on passing out from the back, particularly from goalkicks.
