Re: New Manager

The new manager should be allowed to bed in and come up with a plan to avoid relegation, There should also be a review of the entire playing squad, coaches and supporting staff. The manager will then say which players can go now, which will need to be replaced/upgraded and which ones to keep if we a...

Re: New Manager

The Chronicle has Parky as favourite now that the Portugese chappy has turned us down, apparently the club have been in contact with him and as he's on a 12 mth rolling contract with Bolton he won't cost too much to get.

He was a part of the jigsaw puzzle and maybe part of the reason the others were able to perform so well.

Re: Clement sacked!

At least Howe doesn't mess around.

I predict a return to "The Reading way" of doing things...... Nicky Hammond back anyone? (the way things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if he's back before I even press the submit button)

Re: Clement sacked!

Nani is a weird one. Wonder who got him in. If it’s Gourlay, surely he’ll be gone soon as well. If it wasn’t Gourlay, no idea who did bring him in You never know, it might have been Nani who advised the owners that they need a new CEO. I imagine Howe will sit down and discuss things with Nani, unle...

Is Lawrie Sanchez still around? His name always used to pop up on BBC Berks as a possible Reading manager.

Re: Clement sacked!

Sad to see him go, and would've loved him to be a number two here, to an experienced Manager. Thought he was a genuinley good guy However results speak volumes & lets face it, we've been pants for months. His inability to shore up the defence has been his downfall, and IMO its not due to the qu...

Re: New Manager

Bryn. Gunnasson. He seems to doing quite well in Iceland. He has also said that his dream job would be to manage Reading. He may well be able to bring back the fans to the Mad Stad. Source for the dream bit? I'm all for making dreams come true. The horse's mouth! Some time ago he said so in a radio...

Re: Clement

Johnny Fordham hinting at Murty coming home. Not sure I'd want that, tbh. Well it is Christmas so it makes sense he'll be heading home to see family. On a serious note, He was part of the 106 team and he would have picked up a few things from Coppell on how the team came together as one, maybe even...

Re: New Manager

I guess the main question is who is heading up this recruitment drive - Howe or Nani? That could push the direction of this appointment. Has Nani actually done anything of note since his appointment? - I guess he reports into Howe now and will have to impress the new boss or he'll be out the door a...

Re: Clement sacked!

Strange timing, especially as we've been playing relatively good football recently - perhaps someone became available or maybe the owners did their once a year look at the football table? On the other hand, If your going to replace a manager, getting someone else in before the transfer window makes ...
