This week's Tilehurst End Podcast sees Wimb & Westy reflect on Reading's narrow 3-2 defeat at Pride Park to make it three defeats on the bounce for the first time in the Jaap Stam era. We'll try and sort the blips from the bigger problems and asses our chances going into two big games with Fulham and Cardiff.

In the mailbag there's questions on the balance of the midfield, chances for youngsters going forward and Yakou Meite plus we've got the latest news including details of a loan move for a TTE Podcast award winner and a striker who could be making a move to the club.

Since the last podcast we've been beaten at home by lowly QPR, announced a £15m loss, still had no takeover and have yet to complete a signing that's been two-weeks in the making. Yet at the same time we've tied down our top goalscorer to a new deal and we still sit fourth in the league. So is the Reading FC glass half-empty or half-full? Wimb, Westy & Handbags sort through a mixed bag of news to try and come up with an answer.

In the mailbag we field your questions on whether its time to unleash the Yak, slow tempo, Tyler Blackett and the pitch plus we look ahead to a trip to Pride Park to take on play-off chasing Derby.

Episode 113: Man Utd Mauling

Wimb, Jonny and Handbags return to mull over an FA Cup thumping for Reading at Manchester United but with the club poised to break their transfer record on a new defender, are things about to get even better for Jaap Stam and his squad?

We also round up the latest injury news, look back at who scooped TTE Player of the Month honours for December, recap another win for the U23's plus field your questions in the mailbag, where the midfield takes centre stage.

The Tilehurst End Podcast returns with its first show of 2017 and six points from a possible six for Reading to talk about. We'll recap the Boxing Day win over Norwich as well as the dramatic victory at Bristol City, plus give our thoughts on the abandonment of the Fulham game due to fog.

We round up a busy couple of weeks in the news department with the latest on the potential takeover of the club, who Reading might be signing during the transfer window, plus say goodbye and good luck to a friend of the show.

All that plus plenty more in the 112th Tilehurst End Podcast.
