Settle down everyone – I’ll admit that was a cruel headline to have you spitting your corn flakes everywhere in disgust.
But, Steve Coppell resigned as manager of Reading last night after they were knocked out of the play-offs by a very impressive Burnley side. This despite John Madjeski’s earlier insistence on Radio 5 Live that they wouldn’t be discussing the managerial situation ‘until next week at the earliest’ regardless of the result.
Now, we know Sanchez lives in Reading (and played for them, of course). He used that local knowledge to organise that inspired swap – Seol for Rosenior, who looked absolutely gutted last night (as you would), poor chap. He’s been out of work for around a year and a half now. Okay, his last job didn’t exactly go to plan but he was great as Northern Ireland manager, you know?
So how about it?
