Podcast Extra - December 21

In the final Podcast Extra of the year, Olly and Tom look back at the Cardiff and Ipswich games, discuss Yann Kermorgant's role in the team, dissect the latest transfer rumours and preview the festive period, starting with the 500th game at the Madejski Stadium this weekend against Burton Albion. 

It’s time to draw a merry end to 2017, a rollercoaster of a year at Reading Football Club with The Tilehurst End Podcast Awards!

Marc is joined in the new surroundings of the Ibis hotel on the Oxford Road by Steve ‘Royal Hoops’ Curtis, Chris Hartley and debutant David Berry with the gongs handed out to the Royals’ best player, most improved, comedy moment, the Hal Robson-Kanu underachiever and much more.

As ever, we also answer your questions in the mailbag with the best place to get in touch ahead of our return in the new year.

There is also a recap after the 2-0 defeat to Ipswich and a cursory glance towards the Christmas period and what is to come in 2018.

Podcast Extra - December 8

With just one game to look back on, the 3-1 win at Sunderland, it's a slightly shorter Podcast Extra this week. But fear not, Olly and Tom still discuss the FA Cup third round draw, a loan move for an academy product and look ahead to Monday's game with high-flying Cardiff.

As one of the most iconic historical figures in Reading Football Club history, Robin Friday is a myth, an engima, and the subject of Robin Titford’s latest release which the author discusses on this week’s podcast.

With a win at Sunderland to review and games versus Cardiff and Stevenage in the Cup to review, Marc is joined by Steve ‘Royals Hoops’ Curtis as well this week with your questions in the mailbag also answered during Episode 146.

Roger’s work ‘The Legend Of Robin Friday’ is available in Reading, at the Waterstones and Madejski Stadium, with the man himself doing a signing session at the Megastore before Monday’s game.

As ever, the TTE Patreon campaign for the podcast and website is chugging along, and you can get involved in that here, with the show also available via iTunes.

Show order:

Sunderland recap - 03:22

The Legend of Robin Friday - 12:58

Mailbag - 39:32

Cardiff preview - 52:25
