The Tilehurst End Podcast Episode 182: A Forgivable Defeat?

Analysing the Royals’ 2-1 loss at Derby and where our scrap with safety goes from here

Reading travelled back from the East Midlands with empty hands on Saturday following their 2-1 defeat to Derby County, and The Tilehurst End podcast is back to discuss exactly what went wrong at Pride Park, and whether we should be so bothered anyway.

With the Rams flying high and Jose Gomes still getting his feet under the table, Marc Mayo hosts Episode 182 of the show to debate Andy Rinomhota’s switch to right-back, the striker situation, and the coach’s general approach to such games, alongside TTE regulars Simeon ‘BucksRoyal’ Pickup and Olly Allen.

Also on the agenda is a pubchat selection of Reading’s greatest ever loanee XI, your questions in the mailbag, and a look ahead to the trio of games that await the side after the upcoming weekend break.
