It was a rollercoaster season that saw Reading FC do much more than just flirt with relegation for the second year running, but the club were ultimately saved after a dreadful start.

Marc Mayo hosts The Tilehurst End podcast alongside Dan ‘Wimb’ Wimbush and Dave ‘Handbags’ Harris with Episode 195 wrapping up another non-boring season supporting the Royals. The guys review the campaign, cover the issues surrounding the club in Newsbites, answer your Mailbag questions, and have a sneak peak at 2019/20.

A huge thank you to everyone who has listened to the show this season, it’s been another year of flux at a club level and - somewhat less importantly - at a personal level and we wouldn’t be here if people didn’t want to listen in on our shenanigans.

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.

The Tilehurst End Weekend Preview is here for the final time this season as Reading prepare to host Birmingham City on the last day of Championship action. Olly Allen and Simeon Pickup discuss the jubilant mood amongst fans going into the game, debate who might be given a chance to impress as the summer approaches and agree that John O’Shea should get the send off he deserves. Meanwhile, Birmingham fan Gabriel Sutton (aka @_FootbalLab ) gives us the Blues view ahead of the fixture.
