It’s episode 20. He engineers when he wants. He engineers when he waaaants…

Last pod before Xmas. We’ll be back in the first week of January bloated with points and pints.

On this weeks show we welcome back engineer Al who provides us with an exclusive budgie update and a special Christmas message. We look back on the 1-0 thrashing of Swansea and display festive spirit for Dembele and fight club comparison between him and Luka Modric. We’ve got stats. We’ve got cheese. We’ve got Countryfile. Preview Stoke. Forget to preview everything else. Scratch heads over Scott Parker’s return and how our midfield might be impacted. We anger up the blood once more with modern football. We dream of a slowed down rendition of Ohh When the Spurs. Flav squeezes into Susan Boyle and we say thanks for another epic Christmas Cockfest drink up.

There’s also an announcement concerning The Fighting Cock…fanzine.

Down the chimney: Flav, Thelonious, Charlie and engineer Al.

Love the shirt.
