leon Can we stop sacking managers?

Seriously we need to give the manager a chance, surely?

We could do with hiring one first.

I wouldn't sack him.

Those champions/premier League clubs might come back in for him still, don't want to miss out on compensation.

I’d have agreed with you before the Blackburn and Fulham match leon

But he looks hopelessly out of his depth. There are decent managers available. Tonight was as bad a performance as I’ve seen at home

Now official that this season is the worst start to a league season for Reading outside of the PL for the last 20 years or so.

Before tonight, I thought we should give him to Xmas. Now I think he should go. My vote is for Phil Parkinson. He won’t stand for crap or primadonas

His record since becoming manager is appalling. We need stability, obviously, but he's floundering.

I don't think it's time for him to go yet.

But I think the owners might feel differently, especially after their investment in the summer. I don't think he has that long left IMO.

Are you guys being serious with this or just blowing off steam?

Because .. . . if you can't handle a bad few weeks then it might be time to shut RFC down as there's no point carrying on. You'll never be pleased.

It's not just a bad few weeks though, is it? It's a bad 2 and a half years... patience is obviously going to wear thinner amongst the fanbase each time.

But Gomes has only had a half decent squad for about 6 weeks?

Well, the concern is he's not getting results, despite that significant investment. We should be seeing improvement by now, not a brief upturn in form followed by a series of awful performances and results.

As I said in my previous post, I'm not Gomes Out yet, but I can understand why Reading fans have a short fuse. It's been many, many years of this, with the exception of that playoff season, which in itself was fairly boring and ended in failure anyway.

Gomes got John Swift sent off? Interesting.

We lost that game before Swift got sent off.

Sutekh Let’s hope the club have Chris Hughton’s number, think they should start calling now.

Unfortunately Chris Hughton can afford to hang on for a club in a better position than ourselves his stock is higher than Reading at the moment.

Gomes backer here.

"We can make the playoffs" neck-sticker-outer here.

Yes sadly I agree we lost the game before Swift was sent off. One could even argue Swift was just generally pissed off at how we were doing.

What baffles me is this was so unnecessary. We genuinely have a very good squad. We stumbled across a good starting 11 and a good system that stood the test of a few games and just needed to be built on. In the words of Greta Thunberg "this is all wrong".

We can easily pull it round. Gomes is the man, and we have good players. My only concern at this point is confidence. It's a fragile thing, and once the players lose confidence in themselves and in you as the boss it's a slippery slope. Big test for Gomes now. Back to basics. 5-3-2 with the best team out but not so crazy with attack leaving defence open. Get some confidence and belief back.

They were tearing us apart and we've come from behind just once to get a single point. Lightning wasn't going to strike twice in two games. Fulham barely had to turn up.

Do we? We've spent a bit of money and had a good week a month ago. Doesn't mean we have a good squad on anything other than paper.
