S2E11 – Fight The Power

Episode 11. This week consists of seriousness, anger and controversy: Safe standing and EDM, Gareth ‘3rd best player in the world’ Bale, Andre and Chelsea, Rickipedia, racism in football (apparently there’s a fair bit but don’t shout about it), Windy yoof update, a variety of random questions and not so random, including ‘why do some Spurs fans hate Chelsea more than Woolwich’? Wyclef Jean approves of all of the above. Panthers: Flav, Spooky, Thelonious, Ricky with guests Lustdoctor and Dave covering for our missing engineer. Love the shirt. Listen now!

S2E10 – Married to Tottenham

Episode 10. Raucous. Flav had a meeting with Tottenham at the Lane about 1882. If you’re attending the Maribor home game and sitting in block J, you’re going to want to hear the update on this. Aside from the serious real talk, we look back on our 2-0 win against Villa and the variety of story arcs that encompass our current momentum. We playa hate Noel Gallagher. We playa hate diving but also try to rationalise it. We’ve got the curious case of Kyle Walker and then to be honest, I’m not sure what happens after that point. Something in... Read more »

S2E09 – An audience with Micky Hazard

Episode 9. The lads meet up with Micky Hazard, watch the Panathinaikos game, have a few beers, get to the ‘studio’ (lol) and record. Organic stuff. Practically orgasmic. We’ve got a show jammed and buttered up with news on the next 1882 event (get your singing voices ready) plus a brand new project in the making, the historic OTT win at OT, AVB versus the media part seven hundred and a bunch of other stuff including questions from us and from you for our guest, London’s finest black cab driver and not the father of Eden Hazard. Starting line-up: Flav,... Read more »

S2E08 – Ecstatic

Episode 8 – A bumper episode packed with four features! Chicago Dan in da house. For the very very last time. Barthez gob shut by Brad. Lady luck and monkey off back. Vertonghen love-in. The worst Manchester United preview we can possibly muster up – capitulations and refs. Expectations for the season. Director of what? Racism and offensive chanting – would you report it? Woolwich contracting a lethal virus. Magic genie that looks like Ross Kemp. Ecstatic dancing with Engineer Al. Hangover remedies and a fond farewell to Chicago Dan – though its doubtful he’ll even remember it. Jeff Maysh... Read more »
