One cold spring evening in 2011, a new being emerged from the online swamp on fan punditry and, much to the amazement of all, it still lives a decade on, fully evolved into the thoroughly reliable, week-in week-out 6/10 performer that we all know and love.

Yes, The Tilehurst End is ten years old and to mark the occasion, we hosted a special podcast with regular host Marc Mayo, website founder Dan Wimbush and current editor Simeon Pickup. The guys discuss the pre-TTE days of Reading fandom, how the site has grown over the years and peel back the curtain on the running of the site.

Few men have made such an indelible mark on Reading FC as Phil Parkinson.

In 11 years at the club, the bombastic midfielder won two promotions, two Player of the Year awards, and racked up hundreds of appearances.

Parky sits down to discuss all that, Gazza turning up at his testimonial, an appearance in the Mad Stad dugout, and much more with Marc Mayo and Marco Bader of The Tilehurst End Podcast.

Reading FC picked up a lone point from encounters with Birmingham and QPR this week.

With a huge clash at Barnsley coming after the international break, Marc Mayo is joined by Dave ‘Handbags’ Harris and Olly Allen to discuss a bit of something different and ponder some what-ifs from club history. We also answer your Mailbag questions and look ahead to that trip to Oakwell on Good Friday.
