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.
