As it’s the international break we thought we would take a week off from podcasting duties - then a member of Reading’s best-ever team said he was free for a chat and, well, here we are!

Glen Little enjoyed three spells at Madejski Stadium, winning the Championship in one and reaching the play-offs in the other two. From a career that took off in Northern Ireland and travelled through the likes of Burnley, Portsmouth and Wrexham, we discussed a bright career on and off the pitch.

Three months of hard work were flushed down the drain as Reading FC got off to a terrible start in the 2019/20 Championship, losing 3-1 to Sheffield Wednesday.

Jose Gomes’ tactics, decisions and selection come in for criticism on The Tilehurst End Podcast Episode 197, hosted by Marc Mayo with Alan ‘Westy’ West for company. However, there is room for perspective after the first of 46 league games this season.

The guys also talk through the Royals’ rush to get late deals over the line, with three major incomings due - one of which could cost £5million. That comes after the Mailbag with the trip to Hull the focus of Big Match Preview.

It’s time. Football is back and Reading Football Club enters the new campaign with a sense of great unpredictability. After a quiet summer on the transfer front but stocked by fresh young talent, the Royals will be hard to pin down for the early weeks of the 2019/20 season.

Doing their best to work out what is to come, Marc Mayo and Dave ‘Handbags’ Harris take you through the major goings on of the summer and preview the year ahead in The Tilehurst End Podcast episode 196.

It was a rollercoaster season that saw Reading FC do much more than just flirt with relegation for the second year running, but the club were ultimately saved after a dreadful start.

Marc Mayo hosts The Tilehurst End podcast alongside Dan ‘Wimb’ Wimbush and Dave ‘Handbags’ Harris with Episode 195 wrapping up another non-boring season supporting the Royals. The guys review the campaign, cover the issues surrounding the club in Newsbites, answer your Mailbag questions, and have a sneak peak at 2019/20.

A huge thank you to everyone who has listened to the show this season, it’s been another year of flux at a club level and - somewhat less importantly - at a personal level and we wouldn’t be here if people didn’t want to listen in on our shenanigans.
