IN for giving Marshall a real chance, and if that doesn't work out then Parky for me.

Knows a Championship relegation battle (Bolton overachieved by staying up last season), has had experience stabalising teams before taking them up the league to the play-offs (Charlton and Bradford), or automatic (Colchester). At Bolton his hands have been tied due to the state of their finances, and things are seemingly in a very bad place now - players and staff, including Parky, have reportedly not been paid their bonuses for last season.

The attendance show just how much apathy there is around the club currently, he might not be the very best manager, but would certainly connect with the fanbase and bring some life back to the place.

He's your bread and butter type manager.


I like his approach as a manager but doesn't he get his teams playing Stam style football?

Sorry to disappoint you all, but I'm not available. I'm not looking to do six months of work with a bunch of chancers and then get a big pay off.

I'm happy with my long term security and achievable goals, thanks.

Why is Ian Royal not amongst the bookies favourites for the job?

Ok. I'll do it as long as I can appoint whoever I want as my number two and spend all my time on the beach. I'll even do it for just £70k a year.

Does anyone have Clement's phone number?

He's a big lad. Might scare some of the players into performing.

Brynjar Gunnarsson and Ivar Ingimarsson as his no2, job done, he will forever be a legend for that nutmeg and cross. I don't really care if they can't manage, it will make Reading Fc fun again. :D :D :D

Pelle is an odd choice for assistant?
