Nothing inspiring in the bookies list. Full of people who have just been sacked or boorish "characters" like Pearson, Allardyce and saggy 'arry. The likes of Loader and Rinomhota would never be seen again if the three mentioned and the likes of Hughes, Bruce and Jokanovic were appointed.

Coppell has a cushy life in India so wouldn't come back, his time as a manager has come and gone anyway really. Can see no reason why Brian would come back to a club where Owners and fans have treated him terribly. Travelling around Europe, staying in the best hotels whilst scouting for Arsenal vs Abuse from tools like Maffff and Lord Cock or whatever his name is on twatter, difficult choice that.

Would love to see Murts as manager here but not sure he's right at this time. Parky is a no for me, he's in a relegation battle himself which raises alarm bells for me about his ability to get us higher up the table. he's another one I wouldn't trust with the careers of Loader, Rinomhota, etc.

Announcement today suggests that talks are well advanced with AN Other. Given the recent barrage of PR from both the club and SJM. Got to be someone that understands the club. I'd guess at Parky for the job. Been managing for some years now. Ok stats. Has done wonders with Bolton given their limited resources. More than anything else would immediately engage with the fans. Which is key to turning our fortunes around.

don't want Parky, not good enough in the Championship.

What year did Parkinson leave, 02, 03? The Club has changed quite a bit in that time, not sure his understanding of the club would be that vast these days.

Winning a few games with Rangers is hardly grounding for the Championship.

Reading needs to establish an identity again. Someone that buys into the vision. Not a question of returning to years gone by. Parky did get Bolton promoted while under a transfer embargo. No mean feat. Building a team on free tansfers and loan signings.

You need someone who can quickly command respect from the players. Agree with others that we have had enough of untested ex players or rising stars from the Conference.

If you want to turn it around you need someone with a track record.

First choice should actually be Warnock but he won’t be an option. Very close second is Allardyce who has saved both Sunderland and Palace from relegation (which is what we need right now) and got Bolton and West Ham promoted which is our long term goal.

If we can’t afford Allardyce then Pardew who sorted us out when he was here before then sorting out West Ham and in my view, he should have the credit for turning around Southampton s fortunes when they were league one. Adkins merely took over a team already on a roll.

This - getting someone in who immediately connects with the fans, who happens to have a very solid managerial record is a win-win for me

winchester_royal Plenty of good options out there, Jokanovic would be a good appointment but can't see him coming here, I like Warburton too and he's probably the most realistic of the bunch.

However wouldn't it be absolutely wonderful for us to go back to the 'Reading way' and get someone young and up'n'coming from the lower leagues. Two obvious options would be Nathan Jones (Luton) and Dan Cowley (Lincoln). Jones in particular has Luton playing some wonderful football and would certainly come in and make the squad his own. Might be difficult convincing him to leave a promotion chasing Luton, but it's time to show some ambition.

No. I've had my fill of young, inexperienced up and coming managers in Clarke, Stam and Clement.


Sir Steve seems to be doing ok at the moment with no budget ? ..

There is no way on Earth I'd set SSC or McDermott up to fail with our shambolic squad of wasters and be treated like shit by our management and fans.

I think Scott Marshall is a very good bet at 16-1.... nite that he has been put in charge not Gibbs. Also has led under 23s to 14 match unbeaten run.

But more importantly Howe is in charge and there is form for promoting from within when the team is struggling. Pardew was one example but who really knew Brian McDermott well before his appointment first time around.

Basically if he has a good run in our next 3 games I reckon he’ll be manager by xmas.

Whats Roy Keane up to?

Don’t know a lot about Marshall other than his impressive record with the U23s

However be happy for him to be given a go for a few games to see how he gets on.

Nor are we. And he's not been tested at club with decent Champ credentials in years.

Experienced manager. Won relegation battles, achieved promotions, fan favourite.

We'll not do a lot better, though our next manager is on a hiding to nothing picking up a part rebuilt shambles so not ruining Parky's rep by appointing someone else has its benefits.

Whoever it is simply has to be a good appointment and get 24 months in charge to actually lay some foundations. I won't be holding my breath though.

Does he have that great a connection with fans? Again, he's been gone a long time and whilst the likes of you and I might remember him there's a new generation who don't.

How solid is his managerial record at this level?

this team should be able to survive in the championship and then some.

However I’m not convinced by Parkys football. It doesn’t adapt to the Championship. Could be wrong.

I'd boycott if that swindling kunt took over. And you could kiss goodbye to the club because he's financially ruined almost every team he's been to with his brown envelopes and kick backs.
