Phil Parkinson has denied links with the managerial vacancy at Reading: Parky
There have been those who have wanted him from out the day he was appointed and argued that 2nd for most of the season wasn't good enough, that too many matches were drawn etc. etc. They should be careful what they wish for.
However, the fact that he is at least in the frame for Reading suggests that he is not as tactically inept, a hopeless motivator or generally clueless as his critics claim.
