Need to stick with a manager and rebuild. The roller coaster of splashing the cash simply doesn't work at this level.

In. I think it's a combination of working-in new players and man management. Gomes has already shown he can man-manage. It sort of feels that the club are having a bit of HRK Syndrome - we did well against perceived strong sides (two sides in the PL last season and Brom) and not so well against perceived "lesser opposition".

Feels like this has always been the case with Reading.

I would certainly give him until December but looking at the next 6 games we could easily lose them all and if so I doubt he would survive that.

I think we need at least 6 points from the next 6 or else the owners might well lose patience.

Three games ago we were talking about the playoffs, now we are talking about sacking the manager.

What the f*ck is wrong with football fans? Has it always been like this, or is it only since the age of social media? I never remember people shitting the bed this much back in the day.

I keep thinking this and sometimes I think it can't have been like this back in the day, but then I also think that people who had these views just didn't have the platform/exposure to share their views.

I also think that culture, in general, has totally changed and everyone is after instant success and anything else is failure.

Me, I like to think I am old school. If the football is decent and we are scoring goals and winning a few football matches, there is no reason to change, just because we lose a few games in a row.

if we were to finish mid table, as the 30th best team in the country, that shouldn't be seen as a failure.

Social media does have a general atmosphere of negativity (not just for football), as people use it to moan and make reactionary knee-jerk comments, especially on Twitter. I think this sort of thing ends up permeating through social media as a whole and you end up with those views becoming the norm and expectations become massively out of line with reality.

It really has made the world a ridiculous place

I mean it would be nice to go on a run of results again some time in my lifetime, but Gomes is just the sort of stabilising influence the club needs, and that outweighs everything else at the moment.

I think they key with our title winning sides was to fill the team with players who were perhaps perceived to be inferior, thereby viewing all the other teams as stronger...... some unknows from Ireland, Stephen Hunt on a free transfer, Adam Le Fondre from 2 divisions down etc etc

+1 felt like we've been like that for years. The only season really since we got relegated in 2013 that I've felt confident we would win the matches we were expected to was 2016-17 (and for a while 2015-16).

Also feel that the 3-5-2 formation maybe best suited to away games and games against the better sides, so with the games coming up it may be worth sticking with. We do clearly need Miazga back though - seems like he's been a big loss.

That song was in my head the moment I saw the title.
Me too, although I believe
If he stays there could be trouble
If he goes there will be double
