The Tilehurst End Podcast: Jaap Stam Appointment Special

The Tilehurst End Podcast wakes from it's summer hibernation to discuss the managerial change that's seen Brian McDermott replaced as Reading FC manager by Jaap Stam.

Wimb, Jonny & Handbags break from their summer vacations to discuss the appointment of Jaap Stam as Reading's new manager. We discuss the circumstances that led to the Dutchman's arrival and debate what caused Brian McDermott to be sacked after just six months in charge. We break down what this all tells us about the direction of Reading Football Club and of course answer your questions in the mailbag.

We're still after your help in our crowdfunding scheme to help improve the show over the long-term so if you fancy lending your financial support to the show please give us your support here. Rewards range from a shout out right up to a brand spanking new mug & podcast appearance!
