4/7/2021
This week the Whistleblowing three get forensic on Brendan Rodgers and ask what he needs to do to get Leicester City over the line in the wake of their seismic defeat to West Ham this weekend, while lavishing Moyes’ men with due praise too. The rest of the brickbats and bouquets are reserved for United’s almost inevitable second half comeback against United and we ask if this is the best version of Paul Pogba, and of course start writing Jose Mourinho’s legacy. Gritts pours one out for Scott...

Intangibles

4/7/2021
Following a series of delayed flights and missed connections as they returned to the training ground after the international break, the front three finally reunite to cast their eyes over the Easter weekend’s sporting hoo-hah and to look ahead to this week’s bonanza. Mark Smith asks if the honeymoon is over for Tuchel after Allardyce puts the willies up him, Gritts is incredibly uncharitable about Newcastle’s performance against Spurs and Gareth asks if West Ham are the new Leicester, just...

Right Sad Fred

3/23/2021
The wholesome threesome reconvene to consider who the real winners of the FA Cup Quarter finals were - beyond the four teams who literally won. After taking time to praise the complete performance of Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City, the pod wracked their brains to think of players they remember having worse games than Man Utd’s Fred and Gritt’s reminisces on his single most awful performance as a pro. Arsenal v West Ham is declared one of the games of the season and as ever Gareth revels in...

Where The Wilder Things Are

3/15/2021
The fearsome threesome reunite this week just in time to pummel Gareth’s Spurs for a typically timid display in the North London Derby and ask the big questions such as ‘will Mourinho ever learn?’. Grits spills the beans on what sort of managerial disciplinary approach worked during his playing days and then the pod crew lament the absence of Pablo Fornals in the big Man Utd v West Ham clash. Mark Smith suggests that United need an entire new spine to their team while Gritts performs a...

There’s Only One Bissaka

3/8/2021
Gritts and Smudge are joined this week by friend of the pod (and LFC fan) Alfie Brown. In a further act of cruelty to Alfie, Liverpool’s defeat to Fulham is dissected in great detail, along with what might be needed for The Red’s recovery. The Manchester Derby is the other main topic, as Ole impresses against Pep (again). Also, is Luke Shaw the best left back in England? It was agreed that Wan-Bissaka is the best at whatever he does. Not wanting to miss an opportunity to cause Gritts pain,...

He Who VARs Last VARs Longest

3/1/2021
He said he was too strong, had too much willpower and could handle anything they threw at him, but this week refereeing decisions and VAR have finally broken Mark Smith. Smudge runs through the rubble of WBA vs Brighton and Man Utd vs Chelsea while the rest of the pod debate whether Gareth Bale is all the way back, or just on his way to the Euros. A decimated Leicester’s Champions League push gets uncharitably cancelled and the depths of Ole’s title ambitions are fairly questioned, before we...

They Might Not Be Giants

2/22/2021
This week’s podcast sees the rise of the underdog, as we celebrate the achievements of Everton and West Ham in particular. Of course for every happy yin there is a doom laden yang and we question why Liverpool’s title defence has been so poor, and if we’re now in the Mourinho endgame? Props are given to Leicester for consistency and staying power, and we ask if Fulham can do the same and beat out Newcastle for Premier League survival - well, except Gareth who continues to push the unpopular...

Becker The Devil You Know

2/8/2021
This week the three unwise men of the Whistleblowers focus the debate on whether Liverpool are already at the end of their current journey following emphatic defeat at the hands of a settled City team. Over in West London opinion is mixed as to Tuchel’s initial impact and we offer the opinion that Manchester United and Everton might be identical sides of the same coin. It does work as an analogy, honest. Throw in some truncated FA Cup 5th round chat and this week we’re the Shaqiri of the...

They Might Not Be Giants

2/8/2021
A good podcast sometimes looks forward as much as it does back, so this week we concentrate on a forthcoming Gameweek 25 that is positively lip smacking. We decide to give Leeds’ season some headline consideration, try not to dismiss Arsenal’s chances against City and wonder exactly how Everton will drop their britches in a comedy style against Liverpool. In between such madness Gritts grossly exaggerates the size of Steven Gerrard, Gareth attempts to introduce ‘Hassenhuttl’d’ as a verb...

Whistleblowers Introduce Martial Law

2/1/2021
It’s all coming to a head In the Premier League this week as the true contenders emerge and the also-rans fade into the rear view mirror like your new year resolutions. Dry January has thankfully ended so your regular trio can be funny again, and Mark Smith’s opprobrium is focussed on the failures of Messrs Bale and Martial this week. On top of that we ask is Salah the key piece at Liverpool, will the bottom three change for the remainder of the season and will Daniel Levy ever fall out of...

Don’t Write Sergio Off

1/25/2021
Of course the sacking of Lampard is the headline news on this week’s edition - your regular trio debates whether his sacking was premature or even fair, and asks what it means for Mason Mount among others. Additionally Gritts explains what really happens when footballers read their ratings in the newspapers, Mark Smith defends the honour of the FA Cup fourth round and Gareth claims he’d rather watch a season of Southampton than Aston Villa. Plus a look ahead to the two Premier League game...

All About The Tielemans

1/18/2021
This week the question of who will wear the crown hangs heaviest, as we discuss whether Manchester City are now the team to beat and whether key personnel changes by Pep Guardiola are at the root of their upturn. The trio also discuss how Liverpool can improve their attack and if it’s time for fresh forward blood at Anfield, and then get shirty at the idea that Tanguy Ndombele didn’t mean his wonder goal against Sheffield United. Throw in tales of fake Martin Samuels on twitter and it’s a...

Always A Pleasure Never A Chorley

1/11/2021
The stalwart trio of fifth tier podcasting outperform their league standing to shine on FA Cup 3rd round analysis as they decide that Chorley defeating Derby wasn’t even an upset, that Jose Mourinho should be a boxing promoter and collectively wonder if Leeds are the worst FA Cup team in recent history. Plus Gritts reflects on his short time wowing Marine manager Neil Young in his Chester days. If you're interested in cricket and heard the ad at the start of this podcast for Middle Please,...

Tierney For England

1/5/2021

The Boy Who Cried VAR

12/29/2020
This week the three unwise podders discuss a distinct lack of momentum at the ever shifting top of the Premier League table and ask if the heat is being turned up on Frank Lampard.

What Vardy Did Next?

12/8/2020
