John Madejski's Wallet Hughes is UTTERDOGSHIT
What a shambles
He really, really isn't. He had a terrible time at Soton at the start of last season but had kept them up the season before. He has a Premier League win ratio of 38% in over 500 games - which equates to an average PL season of around 46 to 48 points which for the clubs he's managed up there is pretty decent record.
If he translates his record to us over the course of the next 35 games, we'll be comfortably safe and only a small increase in his win % to say 42% would likely see us in the top half.
He is a solid manager coming off the back of a bad job - that is the only reason why he is available. I understand the reticence but lets not pretend he's worse than he actually is. Some of his teams have played decent football too but he is pragmatic enough to find a system that suits the players he has rather than fit the players to a system.
I'm strangely warming to the probability without being a massive supporter of it as a move. I think I like the fact he seems to be a bit of an arse as this squad seems to need a right old kick up the backside.
Not sure those who are not Gunter fans are going to be too happy as he will likely find his way back to the 1st team fold now.
