So, Clement has gone

Who do we want?

Bruce, Jokanovic.... Mark Hughes?

What a bizarre day.

I would like Gareth Ainsworth or Danny Cowley personally. They will go back to the Reading way and promote our youth talent.

I guess the main question is who is heading up this recruitment drive - Howe or Nani? That could push the direction of this appointment.

Well that didn't take the new CEO long to realise what most of have known for months - win %age is abysmal

definitely don't need Bruce or Hughes - has beens. need an up and coming manager/coach that can harnish the quality we do have and shift on the journeymen pros. No idea who though.........

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 as well

Whoever it is there will probably be a poll set up if we don`t get instant success under him.

Bruce and Hughes would be appalling choices, In my dreams, this is the decisive and proactive move of a new CEO who has a plan to revitalise the club. I cannot think Howe would have done this straight away without at least having someone is mind and, more than likely having already agreed a deal that just needs i's dotting and t's crossing.

Given that we were seeming to be turning a corner with the introduction of homegrown talent, throwing a low morale squad into flux with no clear plan for what's next would be totally batsh*t. I'm sticking with optimism for the time being. Quietly confident Nigel's got a (great) plan and the Chinese are prepared to spend.

Eddie Howe deserves the chance to manage a big club.

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

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

Anticipating a new appointment before then?

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