Olly is joined by Sam Stevenson, who has been a key figure in the group that have adopted the South Stand as their home in recent games to attempt to boost the Madejski Stadium atmosphere. Sam explains how the initiative began and what it's aims are, before answering your questions and concerns.

A narrow 1-0 defeat at Fulham was better than what most fans expected at Craven Cottage, with Olly and Tom also surprised that the Whites' goal count wasn't more.
