Good start for Clement, he managed to at least instil some fight into the team yesterday. Apparently they looked absolutely shattered at the end of the game which suggests fitness may have been a bit of an issue under Stam. (We have conceded a lot of late goals this season.)

I’ve got (what now feels like) a measly 17/2 but can’t believe with our tough run in we are now 12/1 to go down after getting a lucky result against QPR, whilst other teams below us actually played really well and picked up point(s) against decent teams at the weekend.

Anything worth knowing about Sumrith Thanakarnjanasut? He just became the chairman at Oxford and all I really know is that he owned Reading for a couple of years.

17/2 is starting to look alright again.

Tiger? Ha!

Yeah, he was alright, at least he tried to engage with the fans.

But it is probably telling that the Thai consortium who owned Reading got their hands on land next to the stadium and are building a half billion pound housing project. (I believe)

1 shot on target in 2 games for Clement’s team apparently, and that a fluke goal from Aluko who has been pathetic all season.

Oh my Gawd. I doubt there has been a more awful team at Reading in my lifetime.

Unbelievable that we will still almost certainly stay up.

Paul Clement must be wondering wtf he has come into. Pleased to say he didn’t pull punches in his post match interview, but then he’s on fairly safe ground there as it’s Stam’s team, not his.

I’d really like Fulham to go up but I’m afraid there is literally no chance of this Reading team getting any result other than a resounding defeat on Sunday.

We aren’t just a crap team with poor, unfit footballers - we are worse than that. We are bottlers with zero heart as well.

Put that lot together and you really have zero chance against a Warnock team.

66/1 for relegation with Betfair.

More than a little generous.

Most depressing season ever.
