Huddersfield and Brentford are on the menu for Wimb & Get Reading's Charles Watts this week as they look at whether ninth place is a fair reflection on the team's quality so far. We get all of the latest injury news including an update on Danny Williams, as Derby prepare to visit the Madejski Stadium with a host of former Royals in their side.
This week's Tilehurst End Podcast sees Wimb, Jonny and Handbags reflect on a cup win for Reading at Brighton followed up by the vanquishing of table toppers Huddersfield at the Madejski Stadium. The question is, can this team go even further, or do the stats and what we're seeing week-to-week hint at a false position?
In Pub Chat, we look back on those opposition goals you just had to be impressed by, while the mailbag covers it's usual mix of topics from John Swift, to play-off potential and much more.
This week's Tilehurst End Podcast picks up off the back of a fifth game without defeat for Reading, as they earn a gutsy 2-1 win at Barnsley. Wimb, Westy and Jonny give their take on Stam's fantastic five, and look at whether this is as good as it'll get, or if there's more to come from this Reading side.
There's fresh news on the plans for Royal Elm Park, another reason to eyeroll Hal Robson-Kanu and as usual we'll be combing through the mailbag plus previewing our next couple of games with Brighton & Huddersfield.

After a three-week break, The Tilehurst End Podcast Extra with Get Reading returns to round up all of the big Reading FC stories since deadline day. Wimb & Charles look at the moves that did, could & should have happened and whether Jaap Stam might still add to his squad before January.
There's a look back on three positive games for Stam's side, that have yielded seven points but not many goals, as Charles gives his opinions on the new formation against Birmingham.
All that plus a full injury updates and thoughts on tomorrow's opponents Barnsley.

The Tilehurst End reaches three figures in style as a bumper team of panellists gathered at the Madejski Stadium to cover games with the MK Dons, Cardiff & Bristol Rovers. On top of that we not only cover Deadline Day and the Asamoah Gyan saga BUT we have the man behind #bushwatch back on the show as Jacob South Klein returns to tell the story of how bushwatch became a national phenomenon.
As well as the mailbag we've got interview with STAR Board Members Paula Martin and Roger Titford, plus Jon Keen pops by to fill us in on the progress of The Sum Of The Parts, which you can buy via Micklepress.
