  1. Too old now unfortunately. Should have appointed him years ago.
  2. Anyone with a reasonable football brain would have got rid when he made the cretinous decision to play Fletcher in FA Cup. Terrible man manager & tactician - completely out of his depth. The players are poo , but a decent manager would have picked up points over the last month.
  3. Don’t be bloody ridiculous! When crazy shambolic decisions like this get made by so called professionals, they should be held accountable. I’m not saying he should go into the specifics, but Monk should at least come out & say they’ve been dropped for a breach of discipline, etc. His poor decision making has derailed our season. This situation would never have come about under a strong man manager.
  4. Whoever interviews Monk tonight should be forcing him to answer the question of why he’s decided to freeze Westwood, Hutchinson, Winnall & Rhodes out. The fans have a right to know & don’t need to hear his post-match thoughts (excuses). If Monk refuses to answer the question, the interview should be terminated. Wish someone would have the balls to do it.
  5. Left Sunderland. Could he be the extra body on the coaching staff?
  6. Sorry if Pope's dead & all that, but a few Championship clubs are sniffing around Cardiff's LB Greg Cunningham. He might be worth a shout. Wonder whether he's played down left with Harris before. Surely gotta be a better shout than Fox & Palmer out of position.
  7. Winnall edges it slightly then. This could be his chance. Hope he takes it.
  8. I'd be interested to know how Joao & Winnall's goals per minute ratio looks.
  9. When you put it like that, it starts to make a bit of sense. However, did Utd sell Brooks so close to the deadline? I don't have much faith that we'll make the 4/5 signings I believe we need before Thursdays deadline. If Joao would have been sold 4 weeks ago, maybe I would have been slightly less annoyed at the decision.
  10. No, but would you pay 6m for Madine? Reading have got a good deal here. If the sale of Joao is a necessity then fair enough, but I'd have waited to see if bids came in for Winnall or Rhodes before the deadline, before rubber stamping this deal. Moving forward with a front line of Nuhiu, Winnall, Forestieri, Fletcher isn't good enough, what with their inury records.
  11. Personally, in this market, I already think he's worth £10 million. I maybe wrong, but I won't be surprised if he's knocking around the 20 goal mark by the end of the season (as long as he stays fit). Our next youngest striker is 28/29, so we'll need to reinvest in this area soon. I just think Chansiri's making a terrible decision.
  12. Brainless decision - I know no one would buy Fletcher due to his age & wages, but Joao would have been the last striker out for me. 25, coming into his prime. If we'd have kept him & played him, he'd have been worth £10 million + by the end of this season. Only Reading benefit from this. We lose our most talented striker & Joao signs for a middle of the road, going no where club. Bitterly disappointed at this news.
  13. Hopefully today will be the end of that experiment. Awful formation - especially when your wing backs look like they've got dypraxia. 4-2-3-1 from now on please Manuel.
  14. Recruitment's probably the biggest reason why we're in such a mess right now. If you look at our squad list & take out all the players that are either not good enough, past it or have recurrent injury problems, you're probably left with about 5 players.
