S2E19 – It’s got a little Windy in here

Episode 19. They said it would never last. Essential show this week as the brilliant Chris Miller ‘gangster pop star physicist cook and patio builder’ guests. He’s also rather good at analysing Tottenham’s defending and has a keen interest in kids. Tottenham kids. Spurs youth players to be precise. Ready yourself for a carpet bombing of knowledge bombs as we discuss Panathinaikos, 1882, Everton autopsy and Swansea at the Lane. We’ve got a poignant quote, a shout-out and the usual meltdown that proceeds ‘questions from the listeners’. The features this week ain’t too shabby either. Cooking up a storm: Flav,... Read more »

S2E18 – Kraken Of A Beast

Episode 18. A Ménage à trois of a pod. We look back at a week that cemented nine points from a possible nine by revisiting the Liverpool and Fulham games. We talk Gareth Bale and gravity. Worship the big beast that is Sandro. And pay respect to the little beast that is Defoe. We’ve also got FA Cup, some 1882 chit-chat and look ahead to Everton away and discuss AVB and this seasons league ambitions. We’ve also got time to doff our hats to the wonderment that is the Bundesliga. Squeezed in: news of our Xmas drink-up, Windy dropping all... Read more »

Episode 17. Triumvirate Triumvirate Triumvirate… We’ve got what really happened out in Rome, with guest Tom (who was out there) giving us the low-down on the attack on Spurs fans before the Lazio game. Also on the show: 1882 and Panathinaikos. Herbert and ‘that’ word. Lazio look-back, on the pitch, including a Lloris love-in. 3-1 derby win. Dempsey is ALIVE! January oh how we dread you. Second half season renaissance. Fulham predictions. Match related war wounds. Sacking managers. Football nicknames. Worst ever sing-a-long. In amongst it we’ve got Rickipedia and Chris…sorry I meant Windy with another yoof update. Around the... Read more »

S2E16 – A catalyst of c….

Bring back Harry Redknapp to steady the ship. Pffff…only joking. Banter, innit. On this weeks pod we have the derby review with more positives than negatives thanks to those tactical reshuffles. We ask if Levy will back AVB in January, scratch heads over systems and compare sustained success to the fleeting variety and look ahead to the West Ham game. Also got ‘over rated passion’, a genie and a coma. There’s even time for the son of a Spurs legend to make a cameo. We’ve also got Prick of the Week, Rickipedia, Windy with his yoof update and more on... Read more »
