#19 And now you’re gonna believe us

Episode 19. We welcome Charlie Marks to the podcast. *50s round of applause*. We’re no longer whispering it quietly and now you’re gonna believe us. Flav’s dog makes an appearance which leaves our eyes watering. Charlie drops some knowledge bombs on King Ledley. Flav & Ricky interview the London Monarchs legend Clive Allen and get parred by Ray Clemence. The FC crew reminisce on the bad old days. Dan and Ricky make a pledge.

#18 We love you Redknapp but…

Episode 18. We start off by eulogising over the demolition of Aston Villa; were The Fighting Cock team faking it? You decide. Has the time come to bow down to Kaboul? Sure, he plucks his eyebrows but he’s got a cracking jab. Adebayor continues to confound critics but God only knows what we’d do without him. Flav fights back against the Harry lovers, we eagerly await Redknapp’s response on Sky Sports News. Windy drops the knowledge. Should Redknapp shuffle the pack against West Brom? We pay homage to the great Paul John Gascoigne and Danny Dyer gets his plates of... Read more »

#17 In the cup for Tottingham

Episode 17. Tales of the worst mugger ever, squirting, Movember and the return of Jack. Part I: We talk up Harry Redknapp and the future. Who will be the next Spurs manager if Harry ‘goes’? Let’s pray it’s not Mark Hughes. Big appointment, means big discussion. We also ask if January court room drama will tarnish the club. We also chat: Bale – world class or simply outstanding? Modric on 100k per week. Best looking manager in the Prem and Windy dropping the knowledge on yoof. Part II: Windy facts, a glorious game of Killer. Yet another 1950s round of... Read more »

#16 The dark days are over

Episode 16. Believe. We’ve got Movember, poor old Harry Redknapp; we have a nurse explain his heart procedure (steady on, it’s a male nurse), Fulham match review…we talk substitutions, tactics, second half pressure, player fitness including peaking, Friedel owns Gosling and do we have confidence in Bordan? Martin Jol gets a mention (but no song) and a comparison with Harry. Windy drops the knowledge. Porn star re-tweet mission…it gets messy. Forum affairs and we ask do we care about England? Have we fallen out of love with international football? Club before country? We also discuss Spurs and English yoof signings... Read more »

#14 If You Know Your History

It’s Episode 14 and its real talk. We chat about our stupendously good start to the season, turning around the Manc disasters of the opening two games. Yes, positivity people, we have it in abundance. We squeeze in a Parker love-in. We love you Scotty. And a huddle of hate for gooner fans. Blackburn match analysis. Should we bid for Samba? Should we slap Gallas? Sandro – where will he fit in? How best do we adapt with the squad we have? Snappy QPR match preview and who we should be scared of. Flav shares a dream about Shaun Derry...

#13 Bobby Davro ate my hamster

Episode 13 people. Newcastle discussed and dissected. Like Groundhog Day we are once more forced to revisit (thanks Harry) Bale on the right and the van der Vaart conundrum. We pretend to care about Rubin Kazan at home so we pretend preview a match that’s already been played by the time you get to listen to this. That’s right, we have the timing of Defoe attempting to beat the offside trap. We also preview Blackburn and we’re not so Kean on us losing up there. We’ve got Windy with another yoof round up and he’s upgraded his Fisherprice mic so... Read more »

#12 What International break?

It’s Episode 12. Okay, so look, it was the International break abyss and we had no intention of doing a podcast this week but thought, hey why not, so we did. We even had a running order that consisted of the Stratford bid collapse, the return of David Pleat, Newcastle away, Rafa v JD, Europa League, some forum discussion stuff pertaining to ‘is it right for a Spurs fan to charge in excess of £100 for a NLD ticket?’ and a question via email about singing at the Lane. Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it? Turns out when we sat... Read more »
