Bye bye.

Shame he didn't have it in him to do the decent thing in early January to allow a new manager time.

Reading Football Club announce that Jaap Stam has left his position as manager of the club with immediate effect.

Majority shareholders, Mr Yongge Dai and Ms Xiu Li Dai, had wanted to give Jaap every opportunity to turn around what has been a difficult and challenging Championship campaign.

Jaap has not wavered in the time, effort and sheer determination he has put in to try to steer the team away from the position we find ourselves in. However, after careful consideration, the decision has been made that a change is now necessary.

We would like to thank Jaap for his hard work and commitment to the club, in particular noting what he achieved in a memorable first season in club management, and we wish him the very best of luck in his future endeavours.

We will now focus on identifying and recruiting the right person to take Reading Football Club forward.

Whilst I admire their commitment to give him time and reward last seasons performance with some loyalty, I think on balance that I'd have preferred he went in Jan to give new guy a chance.

Oh well.

had to happen as it wasn't going to improve. Hope they can employ someone good enough to save the team from relegation.

Pardew could be available very shortly - how would we feel if it was him?

This is arguably one of the most important appointments in the clubs recent history, we just need someone who will keep us up for now!

Too late I fear.

Are there any half decent managers that haven't already been snapped up by our (quicker to respond) rivals?

Really wanted him to turn it around but it was clear the players had lost faith, the fans lost faith and eventually the board lost faith.
Anyone know if the backroom staff are gone too?
