4/14/2019
More
Football redefines crisis once again after Man City lose the first leg of their Champions League game against Spurs. Meanwhile, Raheem Sterling looks set to become the patron Saint of empty seats, Joey Barton gets in trouble with the old Bill, and we wonder what kind of relationship Diego Costa has with his mother. ------------------- On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson.

White Hart Lane the sequel opens and there's a Century of song for Mike Dean

4/7/2019
More
There are noise complaints for Spurs, partly because of Mr Go Compare at the launch of the brand new Tottenham stadium. But are they really the greatest team the world have ever seen? Or just the best sound system you ever heard? It should be for a billion quid. And Mike Dean has been stealing the limelight again, making it 100 red cards with Ashley Young. But we were disappointed he didn't celebrate with a special shirt or post-match interview. So we wrote him a song.......

International Hell, Ole gets the job, and more racist bell ends

4/1/2019
More
We celebrate the end of the international break and a crazy world that forks out nearly half a million for something that spent a bit of time in Alex Ferguson's gob. Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finally got his old job at Manchester United, but LVG is not impressed. Across Manchester, Raheem Sterling proved himself worthy of being footballer of the year on and off the pitch after more racist chanting in Montenegro, but his gaffer Pep Guardiola might just have the answer. Unlike the FA,...

Borat beats Scotland, PSG Prisoners and Jurassic Ronaldo

3/25/2019
More
The international break is usually just filled with made up countries, transfer rumours and negative stories about Raheem Sterling, but after he got another Hattrick, the papers had to find other stories. And so we ended up with a week filled with Footballing hostages, angry Celtic fans and a terrifying plan to clone CR7. ------------------- On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson.

Bad weather, International Foreigners and Shooting Pitch Invaders

3/18/2019
More
After a pitch invader punched player Jack Grealish last week, the funny football show explores some of the more extreme suggestions for dealing with it in future. Meanwhile, nobody is getting excited about the international break except perhaps Declan Rice and his passport collection. And while Jurgen Klopp takes aim at the weather once again, Big Sam Allardyce complains about, well, about everything. ------------------- On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim...

An Ole Supernova, another VAR Penalty and LUFCTV goes wrong

3/11/2019
More
After that comeback, everybody is asking what the rules for penalties actually are, but more importantly, we have a brand new chant for referees, but it may be eclipsed by the next one for Solskjaer. Meanwhile, United's ex Jose looks to be on the rebound, and Leeds United FC TV seems to be as technically competent as a Paris VAR room. ------------------- On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson.

Claude Out, Brendan In & is Silva the new Gold?

3/4/2019
More
Ranieri and Puel are out of a job, and Brendan Rodgers has swopped the hoops for the strong character of Leicester City. It's easy to find lots of people upset by this, but tough to get even the new foxes boss sounding happy. And as Man City return to the top of the table, we ask how much Bernardo Silva weighs, and for once we are not fat shaming. Not him anyway. -------------------- On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson. If you want to join the team drop...

The Value of Sanchez, Angry Rantman and away goals rule

2/25/2019
More
Jim is back with less cash than United have after working out how much Alexis Sanchez is costing them, but Solksjaer is optimistic, or maybe just hungry. Also saving money are West Ham fans, just a shame they can't see much. Meanwhile, Chelsea fans were upset even before they lost the Carabao Cup Final and Liverpool fans seem a little confused. -------------------- On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson.

Notts County's cock and the John Barnes racism Medal

2/10/2019
More
This week we learn an important lesson - namely that selfies should be of your face AND NO OTHER BODY PART!!! And we have Alan Hardy to thank for that. Elsewhere Jurgen Klopp manages to pull out even more excuses and wonder if John Barnes really is the right man to stand up for Liam Neeson and all the poor defenceless racists out there. -------------------- On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson.

Mourinho rewrites history, The Luxurious Paul Pogba and Ashley Cole returns

1/27/2019
More
He might not have a proper football job but people are still giving Jose a platform to spout nonsense. And change the past, like a rubbish version of Marty McFly. Meanwhile, Paul Pogba gets it in the neck again, we pay homage to Monty Python and is Frank Lampard about to assemble the worlds greatest OAP team ever? -------------------- On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson.

It may be Christmas Eve but football doesn't ever seem to stop so neither do we. In short, United swopped one of the Premier Leagues most successful managers ever for one of their worst and everyone seemed really happy about it. And there were lots of animal metaphors.

Raheem, Racists, and Pep gets Presidential

12/17/2018

Warning: This episode contains the use of C word. And we don't mean Chelsea, although you are more likely to hear this particular word at Stamford Bridge than anywhere else. An Instagram post dictated the media discussion this week, as everybody clambered over themselves to ask the question "Is Football Racist?" and struggle to know what to do everytime the answer came back as "Yes" even though Piers Morgan kept saying no. Thankfully we had Pep Guardiola who went all Independence Day as he...
