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. Tbf, we’ve note really heard anything concrete other than from Castro who seemed to be first...

Re: New Manager

Tbf sure there are teams in a far better position than us who would be a more attractive proposition for Jokanovic

No doubts was given a hefty pay off as well, so no need to rush back.

Far from optimistic about this one after last weeks mess

Be delighted with a draw

Re: New Manager

No, it certainly wouldn't be the most ambitious appointment

Personally think we should be going all out for Jokanovic but doesn't seem too likely

odds have Parky at evens currently

Re: New Manager

I think parky would do a decent, if not particularly inspiring job I’d back him to get a bit of spirit going and sort out the short term issues. Can’t see our mid term ambition being any higher than mid table with him in charge though It would be the most completely pointless sideways move since we...

Jokanovic is still winning my vote.


Esp if we have money to spend, it’s an absolute no brainier imo

I like what Ainsworth has done for WW, but it’s be a huge gamble and step up for him. If we went down maybe

Re: New Manager

Get your point but Bod and Eza could clearly have been stand out players for us. Bod has 7 goals whilst Eza provides something in midfield we clearly struggle with

Wouldn’t say we have been unlucky particularly with refs etc. Just lost two very key players

They are a half decent side who started the season asleep.

Don't think they will go down for one minute personally

Re: New Manager

I'm still more than a bit surprised with PC's departure at that time. He very much did seem to be changing our playing style for the better, and doing a good job of bringing through the youngsters. Results weren't great, but it seemed to be me to be clearly a work in progress. He was hampered by som...

Re: New Manager

Imagine if Castro comes in, Ilori won't be going anywhere for a while Agree would happily sell the likes of Moore, Kelly, Swift, Barrow - pretty much anyone who could generate some cash. Though would like to keep hold of Meite, Loader, Rino. Obvs would happily bin off Aluko, Edwards, McShane, Popa, ...

Re: BFTG Sheffield

Sheffield United last season I believe. Yeah - checking back we had those two weirdly low attendances (also v Bolton), way below even the number of season tickets sold. I was at both. The weather was bitterly cold for the Sheff Utd game. We stopped at Reading Services to sort my windscreen out as i...

Re: New Manager

Suppose it’s also true that he feels he has achieved as much as he can in portugal. Going to struggle to break the Sporting/Benfica/Porto dominance Certainly be a big challenge at Reading and no doubts will be handsomely rewarded if he does well. Obvs no dream to manage or be in Reading, but the fac...

Re: New Manager

The unknown Portuguese bloke is now 4/7 with Sky Bet I think those who are excited about this appointment if it happens are a tiny number and desperate . Of course he may be the messiah but I for one have no good feeling about this what so ever, not that my opinion is worth a flying toss. Our club ...

Re: New Manager

Well tutting on here with the odd alcohol fuelled rant (no names mentioned) maybe

The crowd were pretty patient with Stam and Clement considering. Don’t think I ever even heard a Clement Out chant etc

Re: New Manager

Coming round to the idea of this Castro chap, but he must be given some proper time to turn things round, even if it means a relegation.

Re: New Manager

It does sound like people who know of him rate him highly As said elsewhere, I really hope Howe and co have thought the sacking of PC through and have a plan in place, otherwise it really should not have happened at all Not keen on the agent interference, but realistically there’s a few clubs that w...
