Reading part ways with Rodgers

The club have just announced that Brendan Rodgers will leave his position as manager with immediate effect. It puts an end to a tenure that few Reading fans will remember fondly as the club sits precariously above the relegation zone and the possibility of League One football loomed over the club.

Brendan Rodgers time at Reading was, in short, a disastrous one and I’ll be discussing it in more detail as soon as time permits (which it hasn’t done much recently, hence the lack of updates)

One hopes that Reading have a successor in mind. I wouldn’t be surprised to find that it’s Darren Ferguson, who we were very interested in before moving for Rodgers and who has recently become available, making him the cheap and therefore attractive option.

Thoughts?

UPDATE: Brian McDermott to take charge of first-team until a new manager is appointed

    So far I’m happy with McDermott as manager. It seems that the team and management are working in sync and recent results have been very promising after the fiasco last year.

    Thanks for the comments Monty and glad you’re enjoying the blog! I agree; McDermott has impressed so far. His league results since taking over full-time have seen us poke our heads outside the relegation zone and, hopefully, begin to climb away. His FA cup results speak for themselves.

    I think he showed good sense during the transfer window too. Many of us would have liked to have seen a proven goalscorer come in, but McDermott decided to shore up the defence instead and both of his loan signings have improved that leaky back-line. Griffin, in particular, has had a lot of influence over our improved performances in my opinion.
