Nigel Adkins: Will take his Reading side to Ashton Gate

Nigel Adkins: Will take his Reading side to Ashton Gate

Nigel Adkins' Royals, recently relegated from the top flight, will make the trip on Wednesday July 24 before City round off their pre-season preparations at Bournemouth three days later.

"It's a good way to end pre-season," head coach Sean O'Driscoll said. "We play a team that have come down from the Premier League in Reading and arguably the best team in League One last season, Bournemouth, in the days leading up to the first league fixture.

"Nigel rang me up and asked for the friendly at Ashton Gate and we were pleased with the opportunity. I think he'll be looking to tinker with the dynamics of Reading's play slightly this season and it'll be a meaningful game for them, as it will us."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
