The Tilehurst End Podcast Episode 267: An Apocalyptic Defeat?

Was the post-Stoke fury justified?

The first match of Reading FC’s new season finished in a 3-2 defeat to Stoke - and with a fair amount of social media anger at the result and the club.

Marc Mayo is joined by Simeon Pickup to discuss whether the performance justified the emotion, and where it left our hopes for the new season. In Episode 267, we analyse the match action, answer your mailbag questions, review the transfer situation in Newsbites, and look ahead to two matches at the SCLS.
