Reading FC won’t play again this month and most likely not until the summer, so The Tilehurst End Podcast is naturally going on a bit of a break.

But while we rack our brains thinking of decent content ideas, Marc and Westy chatted for a podcast special about the season so far and when we hope to see the show back on the road. Marc also chatted to Al Cousins, a Tilehurst-native now living out in the USA who was unable to attend the Stoke game, which would have been his first Royals match for two decades.

A 3-1 win at Birmingham elevated Reading FC firmly into the mid-table echelons after a strong showing against Sheffield United was not enough to progress in the FA Cup.

Marc Mayo and Olly Allen discuss the matches in The Tilehurst End Podcast Episode 224 along with your Mailbag questions, the club’s Newsbites and the Stoke game focused on in Big Match Preview.

Reading FC very smartly banished memories of a 3-0 defeat at home to Wigan in midweek with a necessary win over Barnsley just days later.

Marc Mayo is back in the host’s chair this week with Simeon Pickup to work out what changed for the Royals between the devastating loss and its instant reprieve. Both Mad Stad matches are reviewed in Recap before your Mailbag questions, Newsbites and Big Match Preview for Episode 223.
