Football League World’s Reading fan pundit Harry Chafer has taken issue with comments made by Charlie Adam in the wake of Jose Gomes’ sacking and the appointment of Mark Bowen.
Speaking on the Football Daily Show, the experienced midfielder claimed that the club were playing ‘crazy football’ under the Portuguese
“Obviously Adam had a closer insight to what went on behind the scenes under Gomes and how the former manager instructed his players to play,” the regular punter told Football League World.
“That being said, it could be seen as a bit of a jab at the Portuguese.
“As a fan of football and a fan of Reading who has been to near enough every game this season, I don’t believe that what Gomes was asking the players to do was ‘crazy football’.
“I would pose the question that the players just had to do better in the situations they found themselves in.”
Was the football at Reading under Jose Gomes 'crazy'?
Adam made the move to the Madejski Stadium on a free transfer during the summer after being released by Stoke City but is yet to make an impact in Berkshire.
So far, the 33-year-old has made just four Championship appearances, racking up a total of just 59 minutes, so it is not too much of a surprise that he is favouring life under Mark Bowen.
Last night saw the Royals pick up another useful point, holding high-flying Queens Park Rangers to a 2-2 draw at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
George Puscas and Sam Baldock twice dragged the Royals level after Nahki Wells and Jordan Hugill had both put the Rs ahead.
