Been told that Jose Gomes and his staff's authority in the dressing room had severely deteriorated in the last few weeks. Also told several first-team players had nicknamed him a 'Car Salesman' because he 'talked a good game' - Make of that what you will..

#ReadingFC



If true - disgraceful. Could think of a few nick names for this group of conmen who have been abject failures under a succession of managers.
#SackThePlayers


Really? Let's look at our squad against Bristol

Rafael - new signing

Yiadom - a "supposed" POTS
Miazga - helped keep us up
Moore - on the whole has been very good
Morrison - new signing
Richards - hasn't done bad

Pele - new signing
Rino - our POTS
Ejaria - new signing

Puscas - new signing
Meite - scored vital goals

Walker - hasn't played
McIntyre - brought through by Gomes
Loader - brought through by Gomes
Barrett - brought through by Gomes
Olise - brought through by Gomes
Joao - new signing
Boye - new signing

Can you tell me who the "abject failures under a succession of managers" are please? The only long term players here really are Gunter, Moore, Swift and McCleary I think. Gomes cleared out the ones with the attitude problems and the deadwood including Ilori, Aluko, Barrow etc


:lol: That old chestnut, which players had attitude problems?

Aluko and Barrow - walking back every time they lost the ball (which was a lot)
Ilori - always struck the impression he thought he was better than what he was with his languid style
Popa - has a terrible attitude
Even Kelly - the arrogance of saying “we knew we wouldn’t be relegated”, showing a complacent attitude amongst the squad

That enough for you?

Illori is total speculation, and you've probably missed Meyler. Reckon Bacuna was a wrong un but based on nothing so doesn't count.

Nope, that doesn't tell me they had bad attitudes or maybe i'm taking your bad attitude comment out of context. It says Aluko and Barrow didn't track back, Ilori was over confident, Kelly had faith and was complacent which doesn't mean he had a bad attitude and I assume popa looked like he had an attitude problem because you haven't stated why he had one.

Club finally confirms what we all suspected. Thanks José. You're a top bloke, but the win % wasn't anywhere good enough. Good luck in your next venture.

Maybe it’s the players who are clearly unprofessional who need to go. A lot of them are a complete waste of space. Some in particular have been the downfall for 3 managers.

Transfer list the ducking lot of them

I wanted Jose to stay. Now next season we will definitely be below Wycombe

A lot of overly hysterical fans today throwing a tantrum over a manager who was here less than a year and had a record barely better than his predecessor. A predecessor who a lot of the same people were baying for the blood of.

Jose is a very very nice man and I hope he has success in the rest of his career. However, he wasn't the man to take us forward and I think the fact he was a nice man us clouding the judgement of quite a few people.

If Hughes is the next manager, will he bring he bring Gunter back into the fold?

For reasons I never understood Gunter was made a scapegoat for everything that went wrong at Reading. I have no doubt that bringing him back will improve the team.

If they haven't completed their shortlist then this could be 100% accurate and Hughes still be appointed
Sky in guessing to get a story shocker :roll:

A club that doesn’t want to drop in to League One, perhaps?

Just read Gomes parting message. Argue all you like regarding manager credentials and ability, but he oozes class. All the BS he had to deal with regarding the dead-weight, the morale, and the embargo, etc. and he gets 10 months.

I remember him saying one of the first things he did was to ban smart phones from the team meals - thought that was a brilliant move to help build camaraderie.

I'll echo JSK's comments regarding managerial stability. We need someone here for more than 18 months who has time to build and the support to do it.

Agree.....but he won’t get that at Reading.

Just check out some of the ‘expert’ opinions on here (for example).


If it’s not ‘now’ it aint worth keeping.



Poor decision

But he’s had 34 games and we’ve made no progress. He joined in the relegation zone, he left us in the relegation zone. Credit for keeping us up but he had to go unfortunately

....and yes, but still less than one year (spread over two seasons and two squads) in charge


And of course...all of this getting-rid is ‘working-a-treat’

Well the last two managers have helped keep us up and the one before that took us to the playoff final. So arguably, yes it has worked

That is just the current climate football is at. Chuck lots of money at it - lose a few games - get sacked. Rewards can be gained by sticking through, such as Bristol and Johnson. But it doesn’t always work. Look how stale Wenger was at Arsenal his last few years

Warne at Rotherham?

The climate stinks....what is worse is that a team who only had two managers in ten years (not so long back) has joined that stink.
