Shit! When did Sims have a leg amputated to only be pushing Aluko for a start?

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

To be honest, I don't think we should be looking at managers with experience at just one FL club, and that in League Two, no matter how on the rise they seem to be. It's just yet another person to come in without sufficient experience to deal with our situation. It's not exactly uncommon to see a ma...

Re: Clement

But he's not been out of the game has he? He's been actively assisting for the last 5 years. He had a brief spell with villa too. It's not like he's been gardening for 7 years he's been active in football management. The point in large I was making was there's people like Nagelsman and Howe who had...

Re: Clement

Keane is no more a "psycho" than Klopp and certainly not Simeone. He was very reasonable when he was a manager. I'm not sure I entirely get your point about him not having a management position in 7 years? To you does that mean there's some automatic guarantee he would be useless? I mean ...

Re: Gourlay

I'd argue you're just as shit a CEO if you give your football staff carte blanche to hand out whatever contracts they want and sign anyone without you intervention as if you sign players and contracts without their input. It's the CEO's job to make sure the club is operating within its budget and no...

Re: Clement

I'm not using psycho interchangeably with 'a bit crazy'. I'm using it as in 'has no regard for other's emotions or wellbeing'. Keane is a psycho, Klopp is eccentric. Not only that but he's a psycho who hasn't had a managerial job for seven years. I don't know why people persist in suggesting names w...

Re: Clement

Ah probs not. But there's no evidence to say that he hasn't improved. He has kept up his coaching and what not. As I said I'm not for him really but do love the shit out of him. It's a cork loyalty thing. Why not a psycho out of interest? Klopp is clearly a psycho.. That suggests that I like Klopp ...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

Christ no, Just because he`s a Reading legend doesn`t make him a good manager, and from his track record he clearly is not. :| Did very well at Colchester - 42% win rate, promotion to the Championship Moving to Hull was a mistake, should have got the Championship experience staying at Colchester an...

Re: Clement

Neither am I but he might have improved and he has won promotion from thus league which people are often citing as a prerequisite for a future manager. I can't imagine he's improved much sitting in a studio. He hasn't had a management job since 2011. I also don't think promotion with that Sunderlan...

Re: Clement

I'm not saying he's a good manager and I'm not saying he's a poor manager, all I'm saying is the last time we appointed a former world class/ex Man Utd player as our manager we came 3rd. Moore and Ilori certainly improved under Stam so maybe if we appointed Keane our CMs would improve. Really not c...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Much like with the club's ownership and management, I doubt the organisers are interested in posting the same thing on HNA every week to try to appease critics who have no interest in anything other than criticising. Maybe try reading page one and the OP if you want to know what it's about. I know ...

Re: England - the future....

Meanwhile, back on the topic of the thread... There's some suggestion that Southgate may try a different formation this evening. The implication being that it'll be a flat back 4 with 3 upfront (Rashford, Kane and Sterling). I've seen a few suggestions that that will also mean a midfield 3 of Dier,...

Would be no difficulty shifting Barrow at all

Well if they're out of contract then they certainly aren't going to be a problem in League One next year are they. And glad you can see the future about Barrow. :roll:

Re: Clement

Why? We’d sell Moore and Barrow pretty easily I expect Aluko yeah but we all know everything about him is an absolute disaster Moore probably, far from convinced on Barrow. McShane, Edwards and Meyler might be of use in a lower league, and could potentially be shifted... I just don't see them as be...

Re: Clement

I've been one of Meyler's biggest critics since he joined. Currently he is on international duty, probably in a hotel in Dublin somewhere, chilling post training on his bed playing PS4 and Tweeting between meals and sleeping. I've disregarded him as a Reading player now, along with McShane and Edwa...

Re: Teams to be Relegated 18-19

Last season after 10 games the bottom 7 included Brentford (and us) after 46 games swap out Brentford for Hull. So after 10 games 6 out of 7 were still there at season end. Eventually the trap door will open for us if we stay mired at this level. Luck may desert us this year. And to be clear - we a...
