Steve Clarke was the man in charge at Reading at the start of the season signing Orlando Sa and Paul McShane with the latter bolstering the defence, while in the winter they added Yann Kermorgant.
They started the season well with Nick Blackman in fine form scoring 11 goals as Reading found themselves in the top three, but Blackman was sold in January .
After collapsing in the new year they replaced Clarke with McDermott to little effect. They only won two games in the next two months but McDermott kept his job and he started to turn it around with four wins in eight games.
But then in the run in Reading suffered from 6 defeats in the final 7 games and McDermott was replaced by Jaap Stam at the end of the season.
Reading need to rebuild for next season under Stam and keep hold of key midfielders like Oliver Norwood and Danny Williams. The defence was fairly solid but it could do with some more depth and after successful loan signings from the Premier League like Lucas Piazon they will go back in the market for some more.
