It’s that time of year again - Reading’s financial accounts have been published.

Just like 12 months ago, we welcome football finance expert Kieran Maguire - author of The Price Of Football - onto the podcast to dissect the figures.

Kieran gives us the lowdown on just how bad the club’s financial position is, while there’s discussion on how important it is that Dai Yongge remains interested in Reading, whether a points deduction is possible for next season and what the future is for Financial Fair Play regulations.

If you’re boggled by the numbers, this is a must-listen.
