Re: New Manager

Honestly think the club just need to stump up for Jokanovic. Fulham were in a similar position to us when he took over and he got them promoted. I think it would raise attendances from the off, the football would be better, the atmosphere around the club would improve. It's a no brainer for me.

Re: New Manager

Sure. But he was also CEO during the most successful period in our club's history. You can't just cherry-pick reasons to demonstrate incompetence It was a tongue in cheek, throwaway comment (the type HNA specialises in) that I didn't realise would generate quite so much fury, it certainly wasn't me...

Re: New Manager

This kind of shit really winds me up. Nigel Howe is an absolute titan of of a businessman and I won't hear a word against him. I mean, it's not like we were on the brink of administration during his last tenure as CEO.... :? Because that was his fault :| It was, of course, a little tongue in cheek....

Re: Slavisa Jokanovic

I'm not a Reading fan, but I come in peace :D . I am from Serbia and I am a big fan of Jokanovic. Media here in Serbia are now reporting that he is set to join your club, so I wanted to tell you what you should expect from him, if he indeed comes to your club. 1. He always started the season slowly...

Re: New Manager

It took 2 days after Stan was sacked for us to appoint Clement. It's now been a week with no manager and the rumours are we still don't have a shortlist. Glad that we finally have a competent CEO in charge. This kind of shit really winds me up. Nigel Howe is an absolute titan of of a businessman an...

Re: New Manager

Closer to home for him though and we have no idea how much he is on either. Depends on his motives I guess. If he is a football man then it is a no brainer for him. Decent record, 2 Portuguese titles, a Chinese title and a Greek title. He had a nightmare in Germany with 1860 Munich, although he was...

Re: New Manager

Paul Hirst didn`t handle the step up too well did he? Awful example to use and an exception to the normal rule. Chris Wilder did. Paul Cook has. Frank Lampard hadn't even managed before. Jaap Stam hadnt managed before. Paul Warne is holding his own at Rotherham. Lee Johnson has done reasonably well...

Re: New Manager

Ah well - he looked promising but it would've been a big and expensive gamble.

Jokanovic is still winning my vote.

Re: New Manager

Yes, especially as they were quite able to snap the owners box, with them there. But nothing on this agent who was apparently at the game... They showed a clear shot on the telly of Howe, with Joorabchian (or someone who looked a lot like him) sat next to him, looking bored, playing with his phone....

Re: New Manager

Why did we sign Ilori for 4 million when he was completely unproven at this level? From memory I think it was reported as £2m, but I could be wrong. Regardless, at the time he was a player with some potential, a good pedigree and a decent reputation but not a lot of first team history (I'm not sure...

I was a bit confused about us considering Ainsworth, then I realised Wycombe aren't in League Two, they're 9th in League One :shock:

Re: New Manager

Saw this, I genuinely don’t get why people feel the need to do that, or change their pictures to a player/manager. It’s very odd. I understand that it's called "repping" in the youth parlance. I'm not even 30 yet and I feel old. :roll: Ok then. They can just carry on repping to their 40 f...

Isn't it plain to see that all the Castro stories (has there been more than one?) are being fed to the journo by Joorbachian, unfortunately as the journo in question is Charles Watts everybody is lapping it up Him apparently sitting next to Howe at the game has added significant weight to the stori...

Re: New Manager

Castro to be confirmed Tuesday or Wednesday. Slaviša Jokanović was approached, briefly spoken to, and we moved on. Yet BBC Berks are reporting that Nigel is handing a 10 name short list to the owners this morning. The local press and media are so far behind everything their views or reports should ...
