Shaka spends 45 minutes breaking down his Reading career, from a surprising first impression of Elm Park, to his thoughts on what made the 93-95 team so successful plus what he thinks about this rather interesting kit choice.

Beyond that we touch on his wider career that saw him play in the Premier League for a decade, what he thought on his return to the Madejski Stadium on an emotional September 11th 2001 and why he fell out with Jack Warner.
