Reading are an odd team.

Almost secure in the play off places but 6-1 down at half time is not exactly confidence inspiring.

Congrats on that. Hope you do well.

And then we go and give Aston Villa (on the back of 5 home wins and 5 clean sheets) a stuffing at Villa Park.....

I'll be back next season for sure. Back in the Championship we might even win the odd game now and then...

Then go 1 down and struggle to beat already relegated Rotherham, and get absolutely stuffed 3-0 in the 1st half against relegation threatened Forest.

There is a certain and admirable resilience and bouncebackability (as they like to call it on the local radio) and I have said it before but it's a mystery to me how we have managed to stay in the play off zone most of the season and now sit in 3rd.

Maybe the fact we are 3rd at this late stage with a goal difference of +1 says something. I suppose when we are bad, we are very very bad, and when we are good we are hard to beat with odd flashes of Dutch brilliance.

We'll need more than the odd flash to win through the play offs one would imagine - can't see it myself but Stam might just be the man to bring it about.

If we were to stay down and keep Stam, next season could produce some real entertainment. The former of those 2 outcomes seems far more likely to happen unfortunately.
