Re: BFTG Sheffield

A sudden upturn in form (anything can happen in this league) and we're out of it. What a moronic thing to even suggest anyone is 'gone'. 13 wins in the last 67 league fixtures. Sudden upturn. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Result of chasing a dream with money rather than planning for the longe...

Re: BFTG Sheffield

Dave Kitson was one of the sky pundits, thinks we will go down unless the right manager with championship experience comes in. I agree. Spot on. So the Iranian spiv's non-English speaking mate who has never worked outside of Portugal must be a shoe-in then. This club has been an utter joke since St...

Re: New Manager

This is a weird take on things from JLow.

Re: Clement sacked!

Surprised and a bit disappointed as he seemed a decent bloke. But it’s a results business. No coincidence the day after Howe was appointed CEO. Decent bloke or not, statistically he is our worst ever manager after 28 league games. Although Stam is our 2nd best after 28 games so what do statistics t...

Roy Bentley's Stationary Club

No, not a retro spin off of Dunder and Mifflin or Wernham Hogg, but another book from the pen of Roger Titford. Probably only appeals to "supporters of a certain age", but well worth a read. I was drawn to Elm Park by Jack Mansell's team of "ball-playing sophisticates" but Roger'...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stoke City (h) sponsored by Dylan Kerr

Just papers over the cracks - there is just so much wrong with Clement's "management" that it is not funny. Statistically he is the worst manager in our football league history. 6 wins, 8 draws in 28 league games. He has no idea what the best 18 is, and he chops and changes every match. H...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stoke City (h) sponsored by Dylan Kerr

This surely has to be the end for the utterly clueless Clement. Each match has 3 or 4 starting XI changes and the clueless oxf*rd can;t understand why we are so inconsistently bad!

Dropped into bottom 3 and I simply cannot see how we are going to get out of it this time.

Clement's week on a beach in Dubai last week

I wonder how he enjoyed his week in Dubai whilst the rest of the squad, sports scientists, coaches etc were hard at work at Hogwood during the current international break? Back today I believe to a not very wholesome reaction. Dressing room lost. Not doubt considering what to spend the remaining 2½ ...

This young midfielder has made 4 appearances this season, 1 start and 3 subs. All four matches were won by RFC. The other 14 matches in which he didn't get on the pitch this season were all winless.

Worst RFC manager, statistically, after 23 league games.

For anyone interested in these things, Paul Clement has the worst record after 23 league games of any manager in Reading FC's entire history since we joined the Football League in 1920. http://i68.tinypic.com/qy7fv8.jpg No agenda, no comment, just the bare facts. As an aside, Brenda Bodgers never ev...

Man we're shit. Not for the first time, am watching us thinking just what are we trying to achieve? We seem to play like a group of players who vaguely know each other. They are all doing their thing, but there is no clear shape or direction to our play. Was taken to MadStad for my 60th by sons Sat...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

If we are looking for someone to steady the ship and reintroduce a bit pf passion and loyalty to the club then Parky is your man. Taking the club forward to the upper reaches of the LCh and one day beyond, then I would doubt he is the man for that. However, at present, we just need stability, so for...
