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?

I understand that the relationships with long standing local businesses who've been taking corporate packages aren't being properly managed at the moment. That may be down to the implosion of the commercial dept... But a lot of easy wins are being neglected.. There are different ways to re-structure...

This is getting tiresome....

Can we get an attacking coach?

Lack of ideas in attacking third is beyond frustrating

Re: BFTG , Hull.

Good stuff from my POV. Played with an intensity that’s been missing thus far. Very happy to see Sims start at last and the shah looks like he has something about him. Throw in the experienced head of O’Shea not really putting a foot wrong* and it’s all good. Not sure why people are using Hull bein...

Hhhmmmmm... the Dara Thomas bit is a shame. I believe she's been around for a while doing a lot with limited resources.

I hope he's not a toxic boss, but the signs aren't good...

as long as he performs and the team is competitive, I'll support him. spin is spin and we have to accept that. people conveniently forget that Rooney and Gerrard, so called loyal/badge kissing players both made similar moves to leverage more money from their clubs. at a push, I'd rather a bit of hon...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

So regarding the Aston Villa debacle, can anyone confirm where the funds and running capital for Reading are located?

Do we have holding companies based in mainland China?

This seems to be a pivotal issue for Chinese owners/investors

I only caught a bit of the interview and what struck me was that he talked a lot and didn't actually say very much.
