Re: Are we really going down this season

The available evidence suggests very strongly that PC was the better of the options for keeping us up! He won't get a chance to prove it, but JG will and l don't believe he can do it personally.

Re: José Gomes whelmguage

I'm confused as fcuk but 100% behind the manager. Feels like too much misplaced ire directed at him. He's basically a patsy and absolutely not to blame for anything. Not his fault the heirarchy at the club have had a 3 week long collective brainfart and I won't be blaming Gomes if or when it goes e...

Re: The Reading FC players who fans want to keep or sell in January transfer window

Players generally seem to be motivated by inspired coaching, innovative tactics and respect for their manager. These managers often have playing pedigree and experience, so if all the prerequisites of player fitness, happiness, ability etc exist then reasonable performance should be expected, reason...

Re: New Manager

We need to consolidate now, that would be moving forward. The sums of money being bandied around would probably buy a big hitter as a "consultant" with a bonus for keeping us up! I'd have settled for Colin, which shows how serious the situation is!

Jokanovich, Pardew, Parky, Tisdale, Alladyce, anybody that stops the rot and throws some fecks into the prima donnas until we can retrench in some safety!

Re: New Manager

I didnt and don't want Ainsworth, l'd be happier with an available, experienced coach, somebody that has been in this situation before and succeeded

Re: New Manager

So you're evaluating Ainsworth on his past record, and if you compare even Ainsworth with JG he has a more appropriate pedigree than JG
Our situation is not hopeless, but we cannot afford the luxury of a coach with zero experience of the championship!

Re: New Manager

His past record is absolutely material to getting the gig with us in the first place, hardly irrelevant, and IMHO it doesn't look likely or probable that he will have sufficient experience or time to pull off a miracle!

Re: New Manager

You're right of course, IF he does well, but my grief is with the apparently piss poor selection process, particularly if like any normal person he takes time to evaluate his resources, get up to speed and impose his philosophy and get the lead swinging underperformers playing well enough to avoid t...

Re: New Manager

No profession can avoid relevant criteria to assist with the selection of appropriate candidates, not even football. JG looks, by all normal criteria like a poor choice, if he is appointed time will tell, but RFC will pay the price. For accuracy l have not suggested agent involvement, because l don'...
