Here we are again. For the fourth time in just under two and a half years, we bring you a special managerial podcast following Reading’s decision to replace Mark Bowen with Veljko Paunović.

Olly Allen is joined by Dan Wimbush and Adam Jones to dissect a mad week in RG2, from Monday’s news that Nigel Howe was leaving his position as chief executive to the saga that has left the Royals with a new boss just a week before the start of the season. The guys discuss the timing of the decision, whether we should have sympathy for Bowen, what to expect from Paunović and what we’ve learnt about owner Dai Yongge.
