Simon Cox was a promising upstart during the 2005/06 record-breaking Reading FC campaign and a first-teamer reduced to the bench as the club reached the FA Cup semi-finals in his second spell in Berkshire.

In amongst those massive achievements for the team, the striker has experienced the wonderful tutelage of Eamonn Dolan and the sharp treatment of Steve Clarke. He has seen the club under Sir John Madejski and the Thais, been sent out on loan multiple times and sold twice.

The Tilehurst End Podcast caught up with Simon to discuss his considerable time with Reading and hear his side of a fascinating association between a footballer and his hometown team.

Jordan Obita has seen a lot in over a decade on the Reading FC books - and he's experienced most of it first-hand. A youth prodigy, a player of the season winner, a play-off goalscorer (and penalty shootout misser), a long-term injury absentee and a long-range supremo.

The Tilehurst End Podcast headed down to Hogwood recently to discuss all of the above and more with the left-back. In fact, the interview took place before he netted a maiden Madejski Stadium goal - so some foresight may be required for that part of the chat!

Jose Gomes has left the building after a poor start to the season that failed to build on some promising outings and currently has Reading in the bottom three.

The Tilehurst End Podcast convenes for an impromptu recording - hence the occasional traffic noises - as Marc Mayo and Olly Allen discuss what went right, what went wrong and what comes next for the Royals. At the time of our chat, Mark Hughes was set to replace Gomes and we also consider how he could fit in at the Mad Stad.
