Before Brian was sacked a couple of weeks ago, reports were broken that Jaap Stam was in talks with the club. When Brian was then sacked hours later, we all expected the former United defender to be appointed the new Reading boss immenintely.

Now two weeks down the line, we’ve heard nothing.

However, reports in the national newspapers last night suggested Stam is close to being appointed on a two year deal.

He is likely to beat Avram Grant, Zola and Pantic to the job.

Many Reading fans are unhappy with this appointment due to Jaap not having any managerial experience or experience of this league.

I understand that, but our last three managers have all been proven and experienced managers and have all failed.

Maybe it’s time for a change of approach.

Only time will tell
