leonRoyalBlue Absolutely dire. I have never left a game early like that before but it was pointless staying. Even with the best levels of support in the world, the players, management and coaching staff had already made it abundantly clear that they were incapable of turning the game around.
We have absolutely no-one amongst the management and coaching staff with the ability and experience to turn this around. Gilkes is one of my heroes but his appointment to the coaching team says it all.
Maybe one day we will learn the real reason why Steven Reid left.
After 50 years I think Reading Football Club (or at least the men's side of it) look as though they are going to completely cure me of my Reading Football Club addiction. I really don't think I would miss following them at present.
Hold on. You’ve been saying we’re playing great football and Stams been doing a great job?
Yes, I stayed believing in him longer than many (I don't think I have been saying that the football has been great, with the exception of one or two 'oasis' games). So people aren't allowed to change their opinions over time? Welcome to 21st Century Un-Great Britain.
