#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 »

#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...
