It was a case of close but no cigar for Reading up at Huddersfield as our top two ambitions took a big blow but results elsewhere softened the landing. Wimb and Marc look back on a late defeat at the John Smith's Stadium and what it means for the final 13 games of the season, including that big trip to Brighton on Saturday. 

The mailbag throws up questions on Danny Williams, the decrease in home attendances and whether HRK would thrive in this Jaap Stam side. All that plus the latest news headlines & plenty more.

You may also have noticed we have a new logo! It comes via the same very talented bloke who put together the Jaap Stam Batman video, Mr Ben Greenwood, you can check him out on twitter @benjamingfilms

Valentine's Day is often associated with things going up and down.... delivery trucks full of flowers obviously.. Yet Reading themselves put on quite the performance against Brentford after a drab draw with Barnsley four days previously. We take the good, bad and the random from those two fixtures to try and figure out if we should still be looking up or down.

The mailbag throws up questions about home attendance, the role of George Evans and more, plus we've got a huge game with Huddersfield to look ahead to.

This week's Tilehurst End Podcast sees Wimb and Handbags Harris delve into Reading's 2-2 draw at Ipswich and ask whether it was a case of two-points dropped, or one-point gained.

As four new signings settle into the squad but only two feature at Portman Road, we try and figure out just how Jaap Stam will use his deadline week captures, especially as injuries continue to disrupt the side.

You've once again stepped up to fill our TTE Mailbag, where we take on questions on Danny Williams, Aaron Kuhl, whether Stam is over complicating things and what might happen in the summer.

Episode 116: The Dream Week

This week's Tilehurst End Podcast looks back on one of the best week's we've had as Reading fans for a long time. Three successive league wins, four signings including three on the final day of the window and suddenly the top two are back in sight.

We'll look at all of that, while casting our eye over some unfortunate injuries and some news on the financial front. There's a fair few questions in the mailbag to cover plus we look ahead to Saturday's trip to Ipswich.
