THE FUMBLE with FLETCH & VERN - NFL London Games & Super Bowl Planning

The boys have got it all covered, from the Championship weekend, the 2019 London games and Super Bowl plans for the trip to Atlanta and Fletch is excited. There may well be a breaking of the cigar virginity with Ditka and Jaws as Vern has pulled a few strings. He also explains why he missed the Bears when they were in London first time and Fletch breaks the news about how Vern may or may not have drunkenly interrupted a Super Bowl broadcast last year. Some old skool British NFL memories...



Sorry, it's ben too long but large glasses of wine got in the way. But the Fumble is BACK and the Championship Weekend is under the microscope. It is Atlanta party planning time and Vernon has big nights set up involving cigars with Ditka and the Foo Fighters. Fletch doesn't sound keen to be honest. The GOAT has a bad hair day an it's not gone unnoticed and Luca's match is called off fifteen minutes before kick off. For information regarding your data privacy, visit



One is is Heathrow, one is in Liverpool but Fletch & Vern manage to hook up for a quick fumble. Vern doesn't want to talk about fantasy football any more, but Fletch does.

Fletch has some numbers and maybe the Raiders will be ok...maybe. For information regarding your data privacy, visit


The Fumble with Fletch & Vern S2E11 EXTRAORDINARY REVELATIONS

Where do we start?! Vernon's memorabilia or Fletch's opinion of Scott Hanson. The fact that Fletch calls a long shot for the Conference Championships and Vern reveals that Jim McMahon follows him on twitter barely raise an eyebrow in an episode of extraordinary Packers fall out, Fantasy Football, Efe and all the rest. NFL from the UK fans POV. This episode is ridiculous. Also, Fletch has a cold again. For information regarding your data privacy, visit

Fletch is off to San Francisco on an NFL road trip so the Big Boss of the NFL in the UK Alistair Kirkwood is in, and boy is it a treat. Stories, then stories and after that, some more stories. The man behind the NFL London Games tells us how they came about in the first place, his own massive personal risk, gives some clues, very small clues, about 2019 and tells us about the time he had to virtually bail Vern out of jail (ok, a slight exaggeration, but only slight). And, yes, there are...

It's over for another year but the 2018 edition of the NFL London Games was special. Fletch & Vern recap and look forward to next year and slam the gimmicks that try and over sell the game in the UK.

The Fumble with Fletch & Vern S2E4 - The Efe Obada Fan Club

Vernon is emotional about the NFL debut of former London Warriors team mate Efe Obada. He had a glass of wine with Tess to celebrate and comes to the studio fully dressed as an Efe Obada tribute act, without the size, speed or skill, but with the right hat. Jimmy G is done but the Chiefs aren't and there are some stories about the Patriots and the USFL from Fletch which allows Vernon to consume two boxes of chicken during the recording.

The NFL Season is back and so are Vernon Kay and Darren Fletcher who are over excited.

Super Bowl picks and all that stuff, plus the most important player in the NFC is named. Fletch is going to the NFL Kick Off Event in London but Vern is off to the Brit Bowl. Take our advice, listen to Pick 6 and count them, we listened back and...


The Fumble with Fletch & Vern S1E17 We are Going to The Super Bowl

At Vern's party,...
