#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 »

#11 North London is ours

It’s Episode 11. We discuss the North London Derby. Then we follow it up with the North London Derby. And then we sprinkle the pod further with the North London Derby. Part I includes: Favourite moments, Bell and Hare fight club, overall thoughts on the 2-1, van der Vaart’s impact, we applaud the GIANT that is Scott Parker and Chicago Dan shares an amazing stat. Flav has some gooner quotes and Ricky gets bothered. We preview Newcastle with ample irreverance and predictions. Part II covers Forum Affairs with chit-chat on Carlo Ancelotti, other potential hot-seat suitors post Harry to England... Read more »

#10 Sol Campbell is a…

It’s Episode 10 and The Fighting Cock is back to its mediocre best! Episode 9 saw the team struck down by illness, so it was good to get back to full strength, even if we were missing Spooky… again. Spook had some misplaced notion that flying to Lanzarote for a family holiday and sunning himself on the beach would be an acceptable thing to do. We touch on the masterful first half at Wigan and the more archetypical efforts of the Lilywhites in the second half. But mostly this week it’s about the North London Derby. The big one. The...

#09 Monkey Face!

It’s Episode Nine and it’s a mellow episode. Flav is on his deathbed and all Al manages to engineer is sleep. Both as sick as a very sick dog, but we soldier on regardless. We discuss destroying Liverpool. Injuries in celebration. Docking (dear God why?). A mess of a Wigan preview. Monkey Face. We have another enthralling episode of Killer this week hosted by the dyslexic Spooky. Feedback includes more expertly read emails. Monkey Face. A special mention to the John Crace book ‘Vertigo’ and how to win a copy (we have three available – check out the forum for... Read more »

#08 Tottenham is a glory hole

It’s Episode Eight and it’s an orgy of podcasters. Part I includes seagulling, a re-tweet update, we review a quality result up at Wolves including Scott Parker’s début, Bale on the right (why?), preview Liverpool at the Lane, forward tactics and ask the question two trophies or 4th place finish? Part II is jam-packed with a masterful edition of Killer and two BAE terrace songs (majestic vocals) sent in by listeners are sang by the team. Emails/feedback includes: Who will captain us going forward? Should Luka have been sold? Does Levy have a post-Redknapp managerial plan? We also discuss Ledley... Read more »

#07 Don’t make us destroy you

It’s Episode Seven. No Spooky this week, Thelonious Filth deputises, gentle applause please. Part I kicks off with a colourful round-up of what the Fighting Cock team have been up to. It’s massively off-topic, so deal with it. We’ve got tall tales and blatant cheek from engineer Al, the defending of the C-word and a transfer deadline review. We also ask; What does Rafa van der Vaart do exactly? Part II sees a surprising head to head finale in a game of killer. We’ve got feedback, including an email that asks the poignant question: At what point does glory and... Read more »
