- Wed, 10 Apr 2019 21:04:35 +0000: Championship roundup: Norwich and Sheffield United draw after losing leads - Reading | The Guardian
• Norwich 2-2 Reading; Birmingham 1-1 Sheffield United
• Aston Villa game at Rotherham features three penalties
Sheffield United’s manager, Chris Wilder, promised to keep his cool after their automatic promotion hopes suffered a blow at Birmingham. The Blades were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw as they missed the chance to climb back into the Championship’s top two on a night when the leaders, Norwich, also drew, in thrilling fashion with Reading.
Birmingham’s captain, Michael Morrison, cancelled out Enda Stevens’ goal to leave the Blades third, a point behind Leeds with five games left. They are seven points adrift of Norwich. Wilder said: “You guys will talk about it, the fans will talk about it, but I won’t. I will just talk about the accumulation of points. I can’t be a rollercoaster myself.Continue reading...

- Fri, 01 Feb 2019 15:35:00 +0000: José Gomes: Robson was a symbol of what English football means - Reading | The Guardian
It has taken Reading’s latest manager the best part of 25 years to land a job in England, an ambition he struck on the touchline at Porto’s training ground
For a young coach in Portugal’s second city during the mid-1990s the choice between university classes and a trip to Porto’s practice pitches barely registered. José Gomes would not think twice about skipping an afternoon’s studies when he heard a training session was open; he was spellbound by the famous English manager who had taken over at the club he loved and, in his words, “it was like time stopped” as he stood at the side and watched the old master put the players through their paces.
Gomes is hardly alone in having a Sir Bobby Robson story but the feelings stirred by those glimpses of his work have particular resonance. A month has passed since Gomes was appointed the manager of Reading and it was while watching Robson during that 1994-95 season that he resolved to make working in England his ultimate goal.Continue reading...

- Sat, 05 Jan 2019 16:46:00 +0000: Romelu Lukaku sinks Reading to give Solskjær fifth Manchester United win - Reading | The Guardian
Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s dream start continued with a fifth victory in five games but the first stern test of his interim reign is next: the trip to Tottenham next Sunday. The run equals Sir Matt Busby’s non-wartime club record, but how United fare against a team 10 points and three places better off will be a litmus test of progress.
After the downing of Reading ensured safe passage to the FA Cup fourth round, Solskjær batted away the proposition that United had enjoyed an easy run of matches. “When you go to Cardiff in the first game it’s never easy,” he said. “At home you’re expected to beat Bournemouth and Huddersfield, never easy games. There are no easy games in the Premier League. Newcastle away, I thought that was a professional performance.Continue reading...
