Two matches, four points and yet a lingering question of what's still holding back this Reading team after their 0-0 draw with Sheffield Wednesday and 3-0 beating on Barnsley this past week.

Marc and Westy chew over what's left to improve upon and what areas of the team are worth being pretty pleased about ahead of next weekend's trip to Sunderland.

That match is previewed in Any Other Business with a Pubchat on social media and the future of football broadcasting before your questions answered in the Mailbag.

Podcast Extra - November 24

There's two games to look back on in this week's Podcast Extra with Olly and Tom. The pair also discuss another superb ticket initiative from those behind the scenes at Reading and an Omar Richards transfer rumour, before looking ahead to the visit of Sheffield Wednesday this weekend.

Reality bit back for the Royals over the course of two tricky games against in-form sides, first losing 2-0 to top of the table Wolves at home before a scratchy draw away to a resurgent Bolton.

Marc is joined via Skype for this week's show by The Tilehurst End website editor Simeon Pickup, aka Bucks Royal, to discuss exactly where these two performances leave Reading and Jaap Stam.

There's all the usual analysis and Reading rambling plus your questions in the mailbag, a discussion on the 500th Madejski Stadium game for a fiver deal, and a preview of the upcoming home clashes versus Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley.
