There were a number of heroes from Reading’s 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers but the thankful thing is that the Royals came away with three massive points to kick off the Paul Clement era.

Marc Mayo and Jonny Williams go over the game in detail in the latest TTE Podcast, analysing the dogged determination, tactical nuances and, yes, luck that brought Reading a vital victory.

The international break was anything but quiet for Reading, so Olly and Tom return with plenty to talk about. This week's discussion focuses on the Royals' change of manager - the pair analyse Jaap Stam's departure before running the rule over the prospects of the new man in the hotseat, Paul Clement. His first game in charge is against QPR on Friday, a fixture that is also previewed on the Podcast Extra. 

It’s always nice to catch up with the old gang and TTE were able to do just that at the 2018 STAR Hall of Fame induction evening, during which 25 icons of Reading FC were recognised.

Marc Mayo and Ben Greenwood were down at the Mad Stad, where we had our own display table and everything, to discuss what these sort of events mean to the club and grab a few soundbites off of the inductees.

In the podcast, Brian McDermott and Kevin Doyle come along for a quick chat before Sir John Madejski is welcomed to the show, as well as former director of football Nick Hammond.

Big thanks to all four of them for taking out the time to chat, to all others who came and spoke with us on the evening, and of course to STAR for putting on a great evening’s entertainment.

The departure of Jaap Stam was confirmed on Wednesday morning by the club with Marc Mayo and Olly Allen convening for an emergency podcast to discuss what went wrong, what went right, and where we go from here.

Analysing the club’s state of affairs and the potential replacements, the guys also give their favourite moment under the Dutchman, and what he has to do to succeed in the dugout.

Podcast Extra - March 15

Olly and Tom discuss a defensive horror show at Wolves, discuss the goalkeeping situation, praise a positive(ish) financial report and look ahead to the trip to Norwich at the weekend in the latest Podcast Extra. There were some problems with the audio whilst recording, but rest assured, normal service will resume after the international break!

There was something different about Reading throughout this past week but sadly results stayed more or less the same.

With less posssession and more chances, but worse defending and more poor game management, the Royals’ home draws versus Bolton and Leeds are the focus of The Tilehurst End podcast this week, hosted by Marc Mayo with Simeon ‘BucksRoyal’ Pickup his guest.

After recapping the match actio, Newsbites scours the stories around the club you may have missed before we open up the Mailbag. Rounding us off is a look at two interesting away games in the days ahead, versus Wolves and Norwich.
