No Need to Panic (Hahnemann)

Marcus Hahnemann feels that the first quarter of the season will soon be rectified with Reading regaining the form of last season.

Whilst it has been a disappointing start to the season, it is still important to point out that Reading are in 12th place in the Premier League, which is only four places below the finish last season, so the start to this season only seems as bad as it is due to the tremendous start made last season, and where reading finished as Hahnemann told Sky Sports News, "The bottom line is, everyone is freaking out about where we are, we're 12th.

"That is still a pretty good spot for us considering the size of our club and the size of our squad and the experience we have.

"Last year was a dream season and we have just got to have everyone stick behind us."

Steve Coppell decided to try a different formation at the weekend, in a hope to keep things tight and cut out the goals being conceded, yet still another four were shipped in the 4-2 defeat to Blackburn, however despite Coppell insisting on taking the blame others have defended him, with Hahnemann becoming the latest, holding his hand up to errors of his own, insisting that it is a team game yet he still blames himself for some of the recent goals conceded, "For the most part you need to just forget about it (goals conceded) and get on with it," Hahnemann also told Sky Sports News.

"I did it all last year and came up with a lot of saves.

"It's just frustrating. Whatever formation you can think of, you've still got to defend and that's the bottom line.

"You have to go with runners and I've got to save some goals and we just haven't been good enough."

Reading are conceding goals at an alarming rate, but 12th isn't quite the doom and gloom that is often being portrayed is it. Things have to improve or it will be a struggle this season, but with players returning, including Ibrahima Sonko to the back four, things should improve.
