retro royal Was having beer in Southern Spain last week, and was told that Chris Coleman was being lined up, this information came from someone high up the chain. I have no reason to think it was ball shit, I did spit my beer out at this prospect.

I hope it is balls because I can't think of a much worse choice, would have rather kept Clement


Coleman could do a two for one double deal with successive relegations :shock:

Certainly don't hold the Sunderland relegation against him and think he was actually pretty popular there. His overall record in management is well, average, though certainly post-Fulham.

Stranded Anyone find it interesting that no comment has been made on who will be in charge this weekend?

Anticipating a new appointment before then?


Or even who is going to be doing the pre-match conference in a couple of hours!


As I mentioned on another thread I wouldn't be against seeing what Scott Marshall might be able to do in the interim given his work with the U-23's.

But yes the fact that the club statement mentions nothing about who will be in charge Saturday it would suggest they know who they're getting .

Plenty of good options out there, Jokanovic would be a good appointment but can't see him coming here, I like Warburton too and he's probably the most realistic of the bunch.

However wouldn't it be absolutely wonderful for us to go back to the 'Reading way' and get someone young and up'n'coming from the lower leagues. Two obvious options would be Nathan Jones (Luton) and Dan Cowley (Lincoln). Jones in particular has Luton playing some wonderful football and would certainly come in and make the squad his own. Might be difficult convincing him to leave a promotion chasing Luton, but it's time to show some ambition.

Warburton or Ainsworth for me.
Bruce or Hughes would be a massive mistake IMO. Knowing us though we'll go for Zola :lol:

I wouldn't be adverse to that choice. He did well at Brentford, but was always on a hiding to nothing at Rangers & Forest. Gets his teams to play good football too.

Not that I have anything either of those two names as such, I'm not sure appointing young up'n'coming lower league managers has ever been the Reading Way.

Why is everyone clamouring for a dinsosaur manager? Bar Steve Bruce none of them are suitable choices. We need a young, fresh ambitious manager who will nurture our youth and bring them through into the first team and someone used to working on a tight budget.

Ainsworth is an interesting one. I love his style and passion....Part of me thinks....yeah great shout, but Im just not sure. Wycombe would want too much money as well.
