6ft Kerplunk Given how this has gone down I hope Bowen goes full troll mode and starts Gunter as right back on Saturday.
Sure its particularly uninspiring, but isn't the Reading way to give new players and manager at least 45mins of their first match before the motivational booing starts?

:D
Start walker, Gunter, McCleary and baldock.

Puscas not in the squad.

one of the reasons no one knows anything about him as a manager is because hes never been manager before, which in itself a valid cause for concern

that said, we have a good record with that kind of appointment in the past

You will note that I made no mention whatsoever about him as a manager. That's because I know nothing of that either - nor do all but one of the HobNob massive.


Who is this allusive individual your refer to Fran? Is it Gazza?

I don't KNOW that this person has inside knowledge, but I very strongly suspect, that's all - hence the 'potential' in my earlier quotes.
It would be stupid to name him/her as it may stop any flow of information.

If he is still the Sporting Director, only if he sacks himself.

Fair point. I guess we'll have to stick to telling anyone who seems vaguely ITK to 'oxf*rd off you don't know anyone at the club you pleb!' :lol:
