AthleticoSpizz Gilksey?

He's not first team, he runs the Academy
I thought it had already been announced that Niedzwicki would be leaving, not surprising seeing he was a Bowen man. O'Shea is a club man, hard to see why he would go. Seems very impressive


Agreed, O'Shea seems to be a good influence and provides some continuity.

I think Fortune is a decent appointment as well. Good experience at U23's, had played alongside the manager and played alongside O'Shea and has spent most of his playing career at big clubs without ever really being a star player so hopefully his insight is a bit more relateable to our players.

Old Man Andrews Paunović out of quarantine today, hopefully we hear from him and get an idea on any potential incomings.


Old Man Andrews Why do we need to hear anything from the new manager? I would much rather he was working with the players than talking to a bunch of idiotic supporters.

That was when he first took over, thicko. He has been at the club enough time now to give us his views on the squad and aims going forward.

Idiot.


Well, he seems a decent guy, says the right things but then all new managers use the same slogans and statements, they just replace the name of the club.

Having watched the YouTube interview someone needs to tell him Reading isn’t a city.

Hopefully he teams up with Andrew Peach, get some real momentum

If enough people say we are a city then that’s what we are !
Would be a shame to lose our status as the UK’s biggest town though...

Should re run this now. I know we're only 4 games in but I am very impressed by the man regardless of the great results. He's got a good aura about him and seems very intelligent.

After 12 games. Fine margins between success and failure.

We have 7 league games coming up with no more than 3 days rest between them. If we're still in a strong position after November 7 I think we can unequivocally call this a successful managerial appointment.

I've been impressed with him from day one and I hope he succeeds with us. Looking at the next seven fixtures, if we rotate well I think there's a solid opportunity to hold a top 2 place going into the November break. We should be targeting 15 points minimum.

The International break might do damage to our momentum, but hopefully not.

If we can get points at Boro and keep the run going, it will be immense.

Win at Boro and I may have to sit down

But we need 3-4 more CBS...

Certainly appears like some winnable games in the next seven (or certainly games we need to win if we are promotion candidates)

I’ve only just looked at the next 7. Wycombe, Rotherham, Coventry we need to be picking up max points. Then a few points from Boro, Blackburn, Preston & Stoke should see us in a strong position prior to the crazy Xmas run of fixtures.

29th November to 29th Dec, nine fixtures! Should prove very interesting

Gonna be injury-country. So the sides with tougher/braver players
or bigger (quality) squads will probably benefit.

If only we had six Centre-backs...

Watford showed the problems, 3 serious injuries and the Reading squad is struggling badly for experience. Semedo and Esteves will certainly provide cover and give management some options but probably could do with a couple more even if it’s just short term until January. Also, if players go out on loan in the next week, the club will need to replace them too.

If only the internationals and League Cup had been cut back on/scrapped, then there could have been some relief given to the domestic leagues.

Overall though I am now whelmed by VP’s appointment.
