Re: Next Manager

You just know it’ll be Mark Bowen as the next manager though don’t you At least he’s a former player (1 game was it, back in 1999?) Reading have had more success with appointing new managers in their first role than they have any other type of manager eg. Branfoot, McGhee, Pardew, McDermott so perha...

Re: Gomes sacked?

Tuned into BBC Berks this morning and Ady WIlliams was talking to Andrew Peach and they had a bookie on the line giving odds on the next manager...... I assumed that mean't Gomes had been sacked, but turns out that wasn't the case. When Peach asked Ady if all this speculation/social media stuff cou...

Re: Next Manager

I notice that in addition to Mark Bowen Mr Hughes’ seems also to have worked a lot with former Reading assistant and caretaker manager Eddie Niedzwiecki.

Wondering if Eddie may also be part of any managerial change.

Old Man Andrews We need Ian Royal at the helm. Safe pair of hands.

Shame on you for no Gareth Ainsworth as a poll option too.


Now with added Gareth.


That reset the pole :|

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

6th in the table, not exactly doing badly, but their fans seem pretty happy he's gone. Saw on Twitter that only Liverpool and Man City have lost less games (in the top 4 divisions) since he took over. I guess there has been too many draws. Indeed - just ten defeats in 75 games in charge, but 27 dra...

Next Manager

Well it looks like that the axe has fallen on Jose’s tenure. Reliable sources saying it will be confirmed in 48 hours (so presumably are thrashing out compensation and lining up replacements).

So time to run the annual ( :roll: ) who should be the next manager of Reading FC poll

Re: GOMES OUT!

According to the local media JG was summoned for a showdown meeting this evening (7 Oct) with the board. I presume that the outcome of this will be more along the lines of what is the problem and how do you intend to fix it rather than so long and thanks for all the fish. However it may also be that...

Re: GOMES OUT!

What is so disheartening is that the feelgood factor had briefly returned to the club. I can see it being toxic again if we lose to Preston. In truth Gomes can have no complaints as we have a virtually fully fit squad. This +100 Think the week of Preston, QPR and Forest will be his final throw of t...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (a) sponsored by hopeless causes

Might sound silly here but I dont think we are going to start getting anything from games until our closing down tactics change. Currently we have 1 player close down the ball while the others close down space. We need to either start having the other players close down the passing routes a la Pep ...

Re: Gomes, Should he stay or should he go? Mk2

It’s that the style of play just is not suitable for the English second division. Trying to play like Liverpool when the players don’t seem fit enough and there just isn't the pace in the squad is plainly ridiculous. Tough start yes, but constant defeats against workmanlike (Charlton, Blackburn) and...

Bring back McDermott :wink: No problem with that so long as he was finally given the chance he was allegedly promised on his second return. He will just be sacked again - he wasn't really very good and his double sacking shows that ? What has he done since he left, sorry was sacked from RFC ? Noooo...

Sorry this is now just ridiculous. Another defeat to yet another team that hasn’t really offered all that much despite their lofty position and now Hudds and Stoke have found victories. Good players consistently underperforming. Tactics just are not right for this level of football in the English ga...
