Veljko Paunovic leads Reading FC into their 150th anniversary year with a sense of worry around the newly-rebranded Select Car Leasing Stadium.

Will a thin squad and thinner budget send the Royals tumbling down the league, or will the often ludicrous nature of the Championship allow Reading the chance of a shock success. To work out where the club is heading, Marc Mayo is joined by Ben Thomas for the latest episode of The Tilehurst End podcast to preview the 2021-22 season.

Jose Gomes spent just over nine months in charge of Reading FC, from the final days 2018 to October 2019 - but it is fair to say that there was never a dull moment.

From early troubles and the arrival of the famous five loanees, to a relegation-busting set of memorable wins and a Portugal Day celebration, a lot happened on the pitch as well as of it. The Tilehurst End Podcast sat down with the Portuguese boss to discuss his time at the club, on the pitch and off it.

It’s been just over 60 days since Reading last stepped onto a football pitch and a flurry of news has awoken us from our slumber to remind us that the new season is just a month away...

The 2020-21 season did not begin with intrepid fans chuntering up the hill to the Madejski Stadium filled with the boisterous optimism of a new football season. Instead, we sat huddled around our laptops and televisions, desperate for an escape from the outside world. Cause for optimism was in short supply but Veljko Paunovic’s Reading FC delivered from the off, a ray of glorious sunshine from the dark clouds that hung over us all. Suddenly the fans had a team to adore, to enjoy, and to be proud of once again. All season long we tuned in, eager for another glimpse into our footballing dreamland. Alas, just as spring had sprung, Reading’s season died down into familiar, sullen, reality. What we are left with is not an exhilarating play-off period, or the ecstasy of a promotion parade, but the elegant calm of reflection, on a season that charmed, churned and captivated us, when we needed football the most.

It was the first chance for Reading FC to show that their plunge out of the play-off zone was all due to the pressure of the big occasion, but Veljko Paunovic’s men fell to a 4-1 defeat at Norwich as even seventh place began to slip away.

To review the penultimate game of the season, Marc Mayo is joined by Simeon Pickup for Tilehurst End Podcast Episode 263. After the Recap, a couple of Mailbag questions were on the agenda before an award for Michael Olise in Newsbites and one last time around the maypole in Big Match Preview.
