Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

Re: The Reading Way

I'm just saying that It feel like a comms strategy to me, given there will be some who view sponsorship by this kind of organisation as a negative. Personally, if the club get a record deal from them, then I don't really have a problem with it. There is a line to be drawn somewhere, but this isn't ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

A fit Oliveira is a must.

We've been crying out for a 'proper' centre forward since Murray or Sa.

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Isn't the issue what the manager actually does - given the (until recently) structure, the DoF would have been responsible for player recruitment. Clement and Gomes are therefore tasked with getting the best with what they have, via coaching, team tactics and player motivation. Seems to me that the ...

Re: The midfield

Surprised the midfield is getting as much praise. I posted this in the 'Are we really going down' thread: 'We're more than half way thru the season, and was looking back at some stats. A few things jumped out: - We've played 26 games, and in 18 of them, we've scored either 0 or 1 goal. - In the 26 ...

Re: Jose’s task starts here

As a fan, I find it hard to be objective, I want to give our players the benefit of the doubt that they will come good (notable exception being CG). Seems to me that we can't hold the ball up when we find ourselves in forward areas and it leads to few shots/opportunities. We then concede soft goals ...

Re: New Manager

If the €10k a month figure for the current salary is in the right ballpark and we are quadrupling it, then £500k a year seems reasonable.

There will be heavy incentives and other elements to the big figure cited (possibly transfer and staff costs)

Am just speculating

Re: New Manager

Seems to be some debate about the salary/incentives for the new manager.

Anyone know what the previous packages have been?

Would previous Reading FC managers (post SJM) be on £1M + a year?
