From the highs of fives wins in a row, we've had the low of a five-nil humping at Fulham to deal with. This week's TTE Podcast tries to figure out what went wrong and whether this was a blip or the sign of more pain to come.
Wimb and Handbags Harris are joined by Roger Titford from the Supporters' Trust At Reading to talk about his new book 'The Lost Years of Reading FC', looking at the very early years of the football club and how Reading outlasted plenty of other local teams in the area to become top dogs in Berkshire. You can pick up a copy yourself from the STAR base, the club Megastore or online here.
All that plus we field your questions in the mailbag and look ahead to Saturday's game with Sheffield Wednesday.
A quick editorial note about the quality of audio, it's a bit more unprofessional than usual due to us testing out some new equipment, but we'll get back on the straight(er) and narrow next week.
