Re: Who do you want to replace Clarke?

No one has mentioned Ian Holloway.

If we're not going up, then Holloway for the post match interviews.

Clearly capable of bringing passion to a team and did get Blackpool promoted (only to then be hamstrung by his board)

BFTG Everton

Thought we looked every bit as good as them. Our passing and vision is light years from where we were last season. Blackman is maturing very nicely. Tish looks a great prospect. Shame about Al Habsi dropping the shot from the free kick, otherwise, we more than matched them and the prospects for this...

Re: Nick Blackman

I was Shane Longs biggest critic. He couldn't control a ball, first touch was awful, didn't know where the goal was, then, out of nowhere, he's oxf*rd brilliant, cant miss, glides past defenders and a year after being our top scorer and first name on the team sheet, he's worth 6 million quid (12 mil...

Re: RUMOUR- Clayton Donaldson

Re: One Hundred and Six

Once in a lifetime, never to be repeated. I'm sure Sunderland said the same! Or if you meant never to be repeated by Reading then yeah I would agree. I mean by Reading but also I think its a tall order for any team now as the league is so competitive. The season was a perfect storm of the right man...

SPECULATION - Roger Johnson

Get Reading are linking him to us as "entirely possible". A good defender on his day but IIRC, was there not some controversy about him turning up for training pissed? I cant find anything with a quick web search but am pretty certain this was in the news at the time. We are in need of cen...

Kevin Watson

Watto has been appointed to his first managerial role. He takes over at Malden and Tiptree with effect from today. Would like to wish him the very best of luck with it. He was a good servant to Reading and a thoroughly nice guy. http://www.gazette-news.co.uk/sport/12958826.Watson_named_as_new_Maldon...

Re: Summer Rebuild

What if he has another two years without making appearances in the double figures? Yes, it's sad, but they have to be cautious. They could have written a contract stating a second year if he made X appearances in the first After the Salako situation a few years ago, I don't think any player would s...

Phones are no better. I called in at 10 am and got connected - great I thought, then after 14 minutes, the system just cut me off and now (obviously) I cant get reconnected.

Radio Berks pundits saying it was a great match. Not sure I agree. Boro will feel unlucky not to take all 3 points. They looked comfortable for the whole game and we looked on the back foot. Feds definitely man of the match which says we were fortunate really but well done anyway Feds. I can't see w...

Re: Steve Clarke

Think this is as good an appointment as we could have made. Has studied under one of the best managers in recent history, but has shown the ability to build a team from a squad or "normal" players. I had the impression Adkins had lost the dressing room towards the end so a new manager may ...

Re: Re-poll: Next Manager

Clark is 1/6 favourite on Sky Bet. Haven't seen those type of odds since about an hour before it was announced Brian was getting the sack. Presume he will have contacts at Chelsea so maybe some loanees? No one would have to relocate to come on loan with us. Petr Cech anyone...? He loves Reading........
