Reading Ready to Make Fresh Approach to Former Southampton Manager Nigel Adkins: The Nightly EPL

It’s a quieter news day in the soccer world today, but the major story is that former Southampton manager Nigel Adkins may become the next manager of Reading Football Club.

This one seems like a desperate move to me after Gus Poyet turned down the opportunity to manage Reading. Adkins is a qualified manager, but he’s comparable to Brian McDermott. Hiring Adkins would be seen as a sideways move for Reading Football Club. At this rate, why not accept the likelihood that the team will be relegated and hire someone who can help the team rebuild in the summer and try to come back up next year?

What are your thoughts about the prospect of Nigel Adkins becoming Reading’s new manager?

    Looks like Adkins will be named Reading boss very soon.

    I thought Adkins was unfairly fired by Soutahmpton so he deserves another chance to manage in the EPL. It will be a tough task for him to keep Reading up and even if he doesn’t, no one will blame him for it.

    It makes sense since Adkins did get Southampton promoted so if Reading are relegated, which is very likely, then Adkins would be the perfect manager for them in the Championship. Adkins needs to determine if he will get a better job elsewhere or if this the best he can hope for in the near future.
