Hal Robson-Kanu: Impressed with Nigel Adkins' impact at Reading

The decision to replace Brian McDermott with Nigel Adkins failed to yield an immediate upturn in results as the Royals were hammered 4-1 at Arsenal in the new manager's first game.

That result left Reading bottom of the table on goal difference - seven points from safety and as short as 1/25 to return to the Championship come May.

But Robson-Kanu told the club's official website: "The season doesn't end at 31 games, it ends at 38.

"We need to make the most of every single one, and that starts on Saturday."

Southampton are the visitors to the Madejski Stadium at the weekend, and that represents a chance for Adkins to make a point to the club which sacked him in the autumn.

Robson-Kanu has been impressed by his new boss, and he said: "Training has been really positive.

"It was good to see the gaffer implement his own way of doing things and the boys have taken really well to him."

The Wales winger has also called on supporters to stick with the team beyond now and the end of the season, saying: "The fans really do make a difference to the whole team when they get behind us like we know they can."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
