We may not have won either game, but do two fairly promising performances at Wigan and Leeds in the past week give Reading some sort of foundation to build on back at the Madejski Stadium against Stoke City this Saturday? This is the main talking point as Olly Allen and the Wokingham Paper’s Tom Crocker look ahead to the clash against the Potters, with the latest team news also on the agenda. In addition, this week’s View From The Town End comes courtesy of Stoke fan David Cowlishaw from the Wizards of Drivel podcast.

Anyone hoping for an instant return to the Reading FC of old was brazenly mistaken on Saturday as the Royals took to the pitch for the first time after Ron Gourlay’s resignation as CEO to draw 0-0 with Wigan Athletic.

The point keeps Paul Clement’s out of the drop zone on goal difference and TTE Podcast returns to understand how the game in Lancashire panned out, as well as discuss Gourlay’s exit in-depth, answer your questions in the mailbag, and preview Tuesday’s daunting trip to Leeds United.

An awesome front three of Simeon ‘BucksRoyal’ Pickup, Olly Allen, and Roger Titford appear on the show alongside host Marc Mayo. Roger’s latest book on the Royals, Roy Bentley’s Stationary Club is out now and he pops by to discuss it in the Pubchat section of the show.

The book is on sale for £12 at the Megastore, where there will be a signing before the Sheffield United game on December 8. It’s also available via the When Saturday Comes book shop at https://shop.wsc.co.uk/books.html (postage free).

Yakou Meite led the line for Reading metaphorically and literally on Saturday with the young Ivorian’s brace earning a point in an otherwise poor 2-2 draw against Ipswich Town.

The Tilehurst End Podcast, as ever desperate to focus on the positives, returns this week to place the striker front and centre of Episode 175, working out exactly what it is that is putting Meite in this sort of form, and where he goes from here.

Marc Mayo, Simeon ‘BucksRoyal’ Pickup, and Matt ‘PannasAndNutmegs’ Lawrence sit down to review the weekend’s action while also picking through all the Royals newsbites, mailbag questions, and preview what awaits the team after the international break.

We’ll be back in a fortnight after the trip to Wigan so thanks again for sticking with us and The Tilehurst End Podcast can be taken in via PodBeanYouTube or iTunes. Furthermore, thanks to all listeners who continue to pledge to our Patreon campaign.

Reading picked up a hard fought victory against Bristol City last weekend, but still haven’t won two consecutive matches since last December. Will that change against bottom of the table Ipswich Town this Saturday? In our Weekend Preview podcast, Olly Allen and the Wokingham Paper’s Tom Crocker discuss the rarity of the Royals being the favourites, the continued rumours surrounding Paul Clement’s job and the latest injury news ahead of the fixture.

Plus, hear what the opposition are thinking thanks to Benjamin Bloom from Ipswich podcast The Blue Monday Podcast!

You can’t beat a win but you can ask some serious questions of how Reading got through their 3-2 triumph over Bristol City on Saturday, with the team still lodged inside the Championship relegation zone.

Two quickfire equalisers and a serious deficit in the battle for shots and possession meant it was far from a cruise at the Madejski Stadium, but at the very least the fans went home feeling pretty entertained throughout a breathless 90 minutes.

Chewing over all the goings on in this week’s edition of The Tilehurst End podcast are Marc Mayo and Simeon ‘BucksRoyal’ Pickup, who answer your questions in the mailbag, preview the upcoming clash with lowly Ipswich, and debate the state of the league as a whole in pubchat. Also, apologies for the minor problems with audio quality this week as our connection drifted in and out of position worse than Simon Church.
