Two matches, four points and yet a lingering question of what’s still holding back this Reading team after their 0-0 draw with Sheffield Wednesday and 3-0 beating on Barnsley this past week.

Podcast 142: Two Steps Forward, Three Steps Back

You know what, Reading had their moments on Saturday. With a fresh homegrown striker up top and a bit of pizzazz about them, the Royals showed glimpses of taking a result off Middlesbrough amid a dire run under Jaap Stam. However, as Steve ‘Royal Hoops’ Curtis puts it in TTE Podcast Episode 142, it was two steps forward and three steps back as the hosts eventually slumped to a 2-0 defeat.

Episode 138: Stam’s Tough Love?

The football itself may have been far from memorable but it’s safe to say that Jaap Stam’s post-match comments will live long in the memories of some fans.
