THE FUMBLE with Al & Vern S2E10 - Tears and Terry Tate

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...


The Fumble with Fletch & Vern S2E9 - NFL London Games Broken Down

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. Vern has been on Shahid Khan's boat again and drank too much and left with more than his fair share of bottles of jewel encrusted vodka. The Dallas Cowboys, Cleveland Browns and LA Chargers come in for some analysis and bad news Fumblers, Fletch has moved home and his internet is worse! Gets...


The Fumble with Fletch & Vern S2E8 - LaDailian Thompson guests - NFL in London

Yes LT takes a ride around with VK....and here is the whole lot....and you can watch it on the NFL and NFLUK pages on Facebook too. Fletch is at Wembley with Neil Reynolds and Rob Ryan who have cameo roles in this Fumble episode. Follow us @thefumble.


The Fumble with Fletch & Vern S2E6 - At the Seahawks Hotel & David Tossell from the NFL sits in

The Wembley NFL games overview from the boys with NFL UK Big Wig David Tossell giving not only some insight into the whole set up but a brilliant William 'The Fridge' Perry story. Fletch tells everyone how he was nearly responsible for the demise of Alistair Kirkwood by either electrocution or a fall from an unsafe hight, and Vernon has some vintage Seahawks memories and merch. Also features two Seattle legends Walter Jones & Jacob Green.


The Fumble with Fletch & Vern S2E5 - Live from Wembley

The Fumble is being recorded right outside Wembley Stadium, right where the NFL tailgate will be next week and fans are filing past to go and watch Spurs v Barcelona in the Champions League, but Vern still doesn't know what day it is. Yes, we are so excited about the NFL games at Wembley we have arrived eleven days early. Efe Obada of Carolina Panthers is interviewed on this podcast, and it leaves you wondering what happened on the bouncy castle. Fletch & Vern love the Rams.There is...


The Fumble with Fletch & Vern S2E3 - 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. Jump on to twitter @thefumble to stay in touch and...


The Fumble with Fletch & Vern S2E3 - NFL Week 3 with a Guest Kicker

A real life NFL kicker joins us and we kind of change our tune on kickers a bit. Some real insight into the life of the least heralded member of an NFL team from a guy who has lived it, the former Panther & Raven Rhys Lloyd joins the pod. We go live via the telephone to Rhys, after the first attempt to connect ended in a narrow escape for the producer. Yes, we nearly broadcast something illegal. Probably. Anyway, we avoided going live to some guy and his girlfriend in his Florida apartment...


The Fumble with Fletch & Vern S2E2 - We've Seen The Game of the Season

....and it's only week 1. Darren & Vernon talk about their contrasting American Football themed Saturday fun, at the Brit Bowl and NFL Kick Off in Piccadilly when Fletch came face to face with his Bete Noire, the charming Mr Matt Forte of your Chicago Bears. They talk Week 1 and the Browns, Steelers, Packers & Bears. Like everyone they like the Chiefs now especially as they helped Fletch compile a huge fantasy football score. Pick 6 includes questions from @thefumble and the new rules get...


THE FUMBLE with FLETCH & VERN S2 E1 NFL 2018 - Vern Picked a Kicker at 68

The NFL Season is back and so are Vernon Kay and Darren Fletcher who are over excited. Fantasy teams are picked and Vernon has had a nightmare, but not as big a nightmare as the purchase of a plastic Patriots jacket. Fletch has a worse one though. 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

After a two week stint on IR, Vernon is back from his sick bed and is off to the Super Bowl, and so is Fletch. Here they give an early preview of the Eagles and Patriots game and pick different winners, disagree on whether Tom Brady is the greatest athlete of all time and the impact of Jay Ajayi. Fletch trumps Vern in tales of Super Bowl parties past and even left out the fact that Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad and the guy from Entourage was there with an actual entourage. At Vern's party,...


THE FUMBLE with Fletch & Vern S1E16 Wild Wild Card

Vernon lost his Fantasy Football spoilers, listen to find out how. He might get in a sneaky trip to Jacksonville to see the Jaguars Bills as a bit of compensation. Fletch didn't get any NFL merch for Christmas for the first time in memory and we look back at NFL Black Monday and pick our season MVP and for once we agree. Mostly it's all about the Wild Card Weekend plus a very little bit of speculation on the London NFL games for 2018.


THE NEW YEARS FUMBLE with Fletch & Vern A 2017 PICK SIX

Our New Year's Episode as the Pick 6 asks who Fletch and Vern would like to invite over to theirs for New Year's Eve drinks, their best bit of 2017 and hopes for 2018. Plus it's the much anticipated Fumble Man of the Year. As with all festive episodes it was recorded so far in advance that Fletch is still convinced that the Packers can make the playoffs. It's not all fun and games though as we debate where any future NFL London franchise would be based and ask for your take too @thefumble....


THE FUMBLE with Fletch & Vern S1E14 An NFL Christmas

Christmas episode with Fletch trying to get away for a day at the races and Vern in no real hurry to go anywhere, so it all ends up a bit longer than normal. But Jags, Ravens, Packers, Patriots and a bunch of others come up for discussion, as does former Bolton Wanderers midfielder Kevin Nolan. Fletch lays into just about anyone involved in bringing down the Packers and Vern decides that kissing clean shaven NFL players would be so much more enjoyable than bearded ones. Merry Christmas!


THE FUMBLE with Fletch & Vern S1E13 Snow News Day

The Wentz Wagon wheels are off and the boys disagree on how terrible this is for The Eagles. The Packers have their quarterback back and Fletch once again plots their route to the playoffs. There's some Jags chat and some stuff about stuffing your Christmas turkey with a chicken. More rule changes are offered up in case Roger Goodell is listening, again. Vernon's voice actually cracks as he describes a bad week for Tom Brady. Ron Burgundy makes an appearance.


THE FUMBLE with Fletch & Vern S1E12 The Saints Are Coming

Published hours before the Saints face the Falcons, this episode rejoices at the fiasco in the Meadowlands as the Giants sack the management and reinstate Eli. Ridiculous scenes. Vernon is back from Hong Kong and had a good time at the Formula E. Hey! Stay until the end as there may be some clues about the London Games 2018. One of the hosts of The Fumble is a lot warmer than the other according to the producer. Goodell extended and Goff v Wentz also discussed. And Ju Ju.


THE FUMBLE with Fletch & Vern S1E11 Would Eli To You?

Once again we find ourselves on opposite sides of the globe but still able to discuss the NFL this week and the New York Giants deciding for the first time since November 2004 that they want a different QB. There is anger, yes ANGER, at the decision to bench Eli Manning as Vernon delivers the immortal line: "you can't replace a shambles with a shambles". Then it's New Orleans Saints, LA Chargers (still doesn't sound right) and of course Tom Brady up for discussion. We walked past Tom...


THE FUMBLE with Fletch & Vern S1E9 Soldier Field Trip

Fletch is back from the Windy City and as promised brought a gift for Vern. So a lot of chat about Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers before the mailbag brings forth a great topic....which is..."if every team lost their starting QB, who would win the Super Bowl?" Later on the Bills, Saints, Vikings and Tom Brady get talk time. Vernon says he's not mentioned Tom Brady for a couple of podcasts, but that's not true. We end by pondering when we will do the Thanksgiving episode, before,...


THE FUMBLE with Fletch & Vern S1E8 Eat The 'W''

Tony Boselli joins us again for a bit of Jags chat and everyone cracks up at the attempt at a team talk from Jameis Winston. Physicality comes into the conversation in a very big way, several times, and for a few moments, the very future of THE FUMBLE is in jeopardy as Fletch & Vern fall out. But it's ok now. Jaguars will play the Eagles next season in London* and Fletch is off to Chicago to see the Bears against the Packers and promises to return with gifts. Vernon apologises to the Jets...


THE FUMBLE S1E7 NFL Trade Frenzy

The International Edition of the Fumble as Fletch and Vern are joined together from separate continents. Harrison Smith of the Vikings makes a cameo appearance which only thickens the plot of what may, or may not, have happened in San Francisco. We play historical fantasy match-up and Reggie White and John Randle get a mention, as we talk Twickenham 2 and dream of the London Games next year, where Vernon surprises no one by wishing Tom Brady would come over again. Fletch just wants to...


THE FUMBLE WITH FLETCH & VERN S1E7 Between Twickenhams

It's Twickenham time and Fletch & Vern are BUZZING about their day out, despite the blow out. The Rams are for real, and the thrill of being up close to the action is as real as ever as the boys thank their lucky stars, and Sky TV, that they got pitchside. ERIC DICKERSON appears on the podcast. That is huge for us. So huge we got an autograph. Pictures on our twitter @thefumble. And despite the dismissal from Fletch, Vern stacks up an argument why the Browns & Vikings will put on a London...
