Save Our Steve

Last night Reading fans gave Steve Coppell something to think about, as they put into action a Save Our Steve campaign to convince the Royals manager to stay at the club.

Reading fans gathered by Coppell`s parking space outside the Madejski Stadium, brandishing signs and banners to beg there saviour to stay.

Despite the Royals` relegation, Steve Coppell is still hugely popular amongst the Reading faithful and Royals fans believe that should he stay the team will have a great chance of returning to the Premier League at the first attempt.

Coppell, who has stated that he will take a few days off to think before deciding on his future, has admitted that he holds a special place in his heart for Reading fans.

He said, 'I was touched by the reception I had after the Derby game on Sunday.

'That wouldn`t have happened at any other club. They are unique and their response does have a bearing on my future.'

When Coppell was told of the fans campaign to get him to stay he responded in a jovial manner, 'Just as well it isn`t p***ing it down because there wouldn`t have been many there and I hope they know I drive a small car so they won`t fit many people in there!

'I can`t be there because my son is doing his GCSEs and I`m having dinner with him, but it is a lovely thought and sums up Reading fans.'

Although Coppell`s mind is far from made up, this effort from the loyal Royals may just sway Steve Coppell to take the Royals back into the Premier League.

He has had a starnge career in management, but as has already been stated you have a real chance of bouncing straight back if he stays. Good luck and I hope you can hang on to him.
