Things had been going so, so well for Steve Clarke and Reading. Not much over a month ago, the Royals were flying high in the league, having seen off strong sides like Burnley and Middlesbrough. However, after a dire month and a half of football that's seen Clarke's side pick up 6 points from the last 21 available, the alarm bells are well and truly flashing.
It's really saying something that the above isn't the worst of Reading's problems at the moment. The crazy couple of days that started just before the Bolton game not only took any remaining wind out of the Royals' sails, but it also wrecked the reputation that Steve Clarke had built up in his time at the club.
After today's visit to the City Ground, it's clear that many of you are very disappointed in the manager, with a seemingly endless series of calls on social media for him to leave.
So, the question we have for you is simple: taking into account everything that's happened over the last couple of weeks, should Steve Clarke be sacked by Reading? Vote in our poll below - it'll be interesting to see how much support he has left...
