Today Reading FC are looking for a new manager.

Looks like Parky and Bruce are favourites

Clutching at straws there. Anderson can't afford to replace him so our best hope is he can make a silk purse out of a sow's ear IMO.

Bollocks.

So if Reading come along and offer £500k to take Parky, you think Ken would turn them down because he "can't afford to replace him".

Like most Bolton fans, I think he'd see it as a case of most extraordinary luck.

As I've said before parky is not the problem. 

Even sir Alex Ferguson would struggle with this shite.

Agree with this, however we have no choice if Reading come a calling.

Parky has every reason to leave us, no salary, no safety bonus (over due) no money to spend and he use to play for Reading.

To be honest wellw go down not because of Parky, but because we've no money. At the moment there's no prospect of that.

Ken disagrees with that.In his message to the fans last week he said this -


"There have been a number of accusations about the lack of funding being made available to the manager, which l don’t accept, to say the manager has not had the resources and support is very wide of the mark. In League One our players’ budget was in the top 2/3 clubs and even in the Championship it was higher than a number of other clubs last season and this. "

So why does he and Parkinson blame other clubs spending powers after every defeat?

Would like him to highlight which clubs he means. Looking from a great distance, but I’d be surprised if we were top 20 for player budget in the championship.

Quite an informed poster on WanderersWays (Thorpey) has posted that Reading are coming up tomorrow to meet KA then Parkinson.

Not that surprising really with his links to Reading, and no harm for all sides to have a chat.

Nothing to suggest though that Reading actually wants Parkinson or Parkinson wants Reading but its an interesting development if true - and no doubt it is.

Personally I hope he stays but maybe an honourable way out for all concerned - compensation for Parkinson and staff an unexpected windfall (particularly if we appoint from within - Phillips, Lee, Darby?), outstanding bonus payments for them settled?  Popular appointment for the Reading fans, most Bolton fans wishing him well but seemingly would be pleased to see him go.  And best of all a new Bolton manager for Martin to bitch about after just 5 minutes in post!

What's not to like if it comes off?

Nothing to suggest.....apart from the two sides having a meeting.

If it's true, and your boy suggests it is, then I'd suggest it suggests a lot.

Maybe.

It would suggest more if Parkinson was going to Reading for an interview I would have thought.

If they are coming up to see Parky then they can offer him a lift back and it would suit everyone.

That's of course reliant on KA not trying to screw Reading for too much compo to clear some more misunderstandings.

Bolton boss Phil Parkinson bookies' favourite for Reading job

Phil Parkinson has been backed in as the bookmakers’ favourite for the vacant managerial job at Reading.

The Wanderers boss is now evens with some companies after previous front-runner Luis Castro decided to stay with Portuguese Primera Division outfit Vitoria de Guimaraes.

Parkinson was a big favourite with the Reading fans, making more than 400 appearances for the Royals over an 11-year spell as a player.

Sources close to the club say Nigel Howe, who recently returned as chief executive, has made Parkinson a prominent name in a 10-man shortlist presented to Reading’s Chinese ownership.

Other members of the Royals hierarchy have also given their backing to approach Parkinson, who has been in charge at Wanderers since the summer of 2016.

Other names such as Steve Bruce, Slavisa Jokanovic, Martin O’Neill and Gareth Ainsworth have also been linked with succeeding Paul Clement, who was sacked on December 6.

Some reports suggest Reading want to make an appointment quickly and are confident they can have someone in place by the time they face Rotherham United on Saturday. Parkinson’s contractual situation with Wanderers would mean compensation is due – and a quick deal could be complicated.

According to the BWFC Stats twitter account, Parkinson took charge of his 126th Bolton game at Norwich City on Saturday, making him the longest-serving manager since Sam Allardyce’s resignation in 2007.

Speaking last Thursday, Parkinson said he was trying to focus on his job at the University of Bolton Stadium.

“I literally only just found out about it, and it’s a shame that Paul is no longer the manager but I am concentrating on Bolton Wanderers and the weekend,” he said.

Nothing in that, other than he daren't look past the next game, it'll throw out his, routine of game to game tactics, gameplay, team changes, and everything else he buggers up.

If Parky was to go I doubt it would put Anderson out. Possibility of compensation, a huge wage bill saved and no outlay in recruitment if he promotes from within.

Nat would manage for free... and couldn't possibly do worse than we have done in the past 12 or 13 matches.  My monies on her to get a few wins.

I don’t mind having a go. Look what happened to the players from Colombia. I can be trigger happy depending on results! Very Happy

Nothing in the Phil Parkinson at Reading rumours knocking around. Has people batting for him down there, but I think they are looking at a foreign option.

Anyone can be wrong.

If you actually understood what I've written about him, it is his professionalism I comment on - or rather the lack of it.

Reading away at Rotherham just a small detour to Bolton?

TBF they are looking for someone in "the Reading Mould".

Unfortunately we are looking for someone in the Real Madrid mould.
