Russell Slade's press conference after Reading defeat

Last updated : 26 January 2015 By Michael Morris

"It was dire from our point of view. But there will be ups and downs, but this was a bad day for us. It looks like we have taken a step in the wrong direction and I accept that. It’s important as a group now we unite and be strong and face the criticism and deal with it.”

There might be lots of changes and austerity measures going on but the style of football on the pitch is still the managers responsibility and under Slade it's woeful.
