How do you try and dissect a weekend that's seen you thumped 7-1 with six goals coming before half-time? Well, Wimb & Handbags Harris bravely give it their best shot as we look at just why Reading can't seem to cope on the road against the best teams.
Yet while there was gloom on the pitch this weekend, spirits were soon lifted with a breakthrough in the takeover of the club. Yet with rumours swirling that the move could put us on a potential collision course with the Premier League, is everything as rosy as we hope?
We've got all that plus good news for the U23's, plenty of questions in the mailbag and we preview the games with Aston Villa and Rotherham.
As always we continue to be humbled by your generosity in continuing to support the show financially. Just this week your money has paid for two lovely new sets of headphones to replace some that had seen us through 60 odd shows, and paid for a couple of licenses to help produce the video content you're hopefully enjoying on our YouTube channel.
