The Tilehurst End Podcast - Episode 55: Simon Sheppard Interview & A Lost Flock & Charlton

One of the last men to be part of a Reading team at the old Wembley joins the show, while Wimb & Westy look back on another disappointing week in the Championship for the Royals.

It's back to the Championship for Reading as Wimb & Westy recap a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Charlton that leaves lingering fears of a relegation battle.

Elsewhere there's an interview with former Reading FC goalkeeper Simon Sheppard who talks about the highs of playing for England's youth side and being on the bench for Reading at Wembley to falling out of the professional game at just 23 years of age.

The mailbag covers topics ranging from why teams struggle in the Championship after being relegated from the Premier League to what can be done to improve the match day experience at the Mad Stad. All that and plenty more on Episode 55 of The Tilehurst End Podcast.
