Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

Some of these Twitter knobs should ask themselves if they are Reading fans or Jose Gomes fans.

Would be lying if I said I was thrilled by the appointment but people have to get behind him and support the team. All this talk of protests and calling Bowen a snake isn't going to help the team.

Re: Howe out?

Sir John "has no idea about Modern football". Well, no shit!

Sir John had no idea about football when he was chairman. For the most part, he let the people that did know about it get on with their jobs.

Re: Next Manager

Yeah, because Gomes’ record was great before he joined us! Al these bitter fans that their hero Gomes has gone are pathetic. The bloke failed, simple as that. Give the new guy a chance FFS. Hate the self entitlement of our fans. He’s now going to be under pressure from day 1 which is just embarrass...

Re: Next Manager

Give him a chance.

If he puts on a nice suit and gives a few nice quotes about his "process" and says "my players" a few times I'm sure the twitterati will soon fall at his feet.

Re: Congratulations, you are the new Reading manager

GetReading showed a tweet with this comment Whoever the manager is that comes in, they’ll be inheriting a midfield with fantastic ball carrying and the ability to break the lines via dribbles. Swift & Ejaria rank in the top 5 for progressive carries p90 this season. Rinomhota excelled in this m...

Re: Next Manager

We won't see this kind of rubbish once we're rid of gourlay Feel very uneasy about this. Internal appointments worked with Pardew and McDermott because they understood the club and knew the players. Bowen is fresher than Gomes and has no managerial experience. Could be proven wrong; if so great. Al...

Re: Next Manager

Notts Royal Roy Keane...shocking manager, even worse pundit. Big no for me. Makes Hughes seem an attractive proposition!

Hughton or Jokanovic


You can insult Roy Keane as a manager but I will not stand for criticism of his punditry.

Re: Next Manager

Keane would probably be ok for a short term fix, but can't seem him being a long term solution. Once the "Martin Allen effect" wears off we'll just end up back here this time next year, if not sooner. No one's gonna want to come here and play for a bully. Hughes would probably be more of ...

Re: Congratulations, you are the new Reading manager

As Reading still haven't announced a new manager here is your opportunity to pitch for the job. What formation would you play (a different one for home and away matches perhaps)? FOUR FOUR F[U]CKING TWO! Which players would you drop and why? Swift and Ejaria. We need Ham and Eggers in midfield not ...

genome But Eddie Howe manages Bournemouth?


Not sure how they are going to get relegated to League 1 from the PL. Is it Financial difficulties R4E? Heard they'd borrowed money based on future transfers.

Re: Next Manager

Don't be a knob OMA , no one is pretending to be an insider. It's pretty easy to judge the quality of our coaching by what happens on the pitch. It's an opinion based on evidence. Don't fancy your chances on getting him to not be a knob. You should have read his next post before you said that reall...

Re: Next Manager

Well, the absence of evidence that coaching happens between games by what goes on on the pitch during them is a bit of a hint. Many of our players have been successful and played well before joining us, yet much of our team can't get fairly basic fundamentals of football like passing, movement, tra...

Re: Next Manager

John Smith Ainsworth would be a very astute choice. He'd be able to work on a budget and bring some promising talent up from Wycombe, also the likes of Akinfenwa who would also be a real handful up top.
