The Tilehurst End Podcast Episode 170: A Curious Point & A Trip Down Memory Lane

Marc and Will recap on the 2-2 draw at Brentford before recalling the story of the 2008/09 season.

It was a late goal that denied Reading a useful win at Brentford on Saturday and The Tilehurst End podcast returns to determine if the draw is one to feel good about despite the initial feeling of a missed opportunity.

Two rather fortunate goals gave the visitors a fighting chance at Griffin Park and, with the hosts down to ten men, a headed equaliser still meant that Reading were the first team to avoid defeat at the Bees’ home this season.

With the QPR game previewed ahead of Tuesday night’s game, Marc Mayo and Will Jones also take an in-depth look back at the 2008/09 season, ten years on. Have you any memories on Steve Coppell’s last, somewhat futile campaign? Get in touch!
