Ebola d'Or, Rainbow Laces and Twerking

12/9/2018
More
While Harry Redknapp was being crowned King of The Jungle for singing My Way, Luka Modric was thanking him as he and Ada Hegerberg picked up the gongs at the Ballon d'Or, or the Martin Solveig Twerk It Out Sexism awards as they will forever be known. On the pitch, football got behind Stonewall by, er, by... actually it wasn't too clear what football did, but we did find out that "LGBTQ community" is possibly the most difficult sentence a dyslexic has ever tried to...

12/2/2018

Is football the best way to learn English? What is your manager watching on TV? And how many biscuit puns did the new Macclesfield boss inspire us to?

Keane Ireland, Planet Zlatan, and Jungle Harry

11/26/2018

It's all change for the FAI and Eire as Martin O'Neil and Roy Keane were shipped out this week, and Mick McCarthy was brought in for the republic. Meanwhile, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was opening up about life love and football, Harry Redknapp was chowing down in the jungle and N'Golo Kante got in trouble for wanting to pay his taxes.

Captain Rooney, Harry in the Jungle, and it's Parklife for Charlie Austin

11/19/2018
More
Have we woken up in some kind of parallel universe after England beat Croatia and Wayne Rooney captains England again? Don't worry, everything is ok. Or not depending on how you look at it. With a whip round for outgoing Premier League Chairman Richard Scudamore, we cast our mind back to some of his best emails, and go all Planet Earth for the new boss. And with England through to the nations league semis, Harry Redknapp is off to the jungle, but is Jose off to the recording studio for an...

Criminal referees, Ronaldo takes the biscuit, and Wayne Rooney hits 120

11/12/2018
More
There's a lot of crime in this episode - dodgy finances at the Etihad, dodgy refereeing, and some less than tasteful biscuits. But could the biggest crime be Wayne Rooney returning to play for England? ---------------- On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson.

#TogetherForLeicester

11/5/2018
More
This week the football world mourned the man who enabled the ultimate fairytale to come true with Leicester City. Yet still there are few who can pronounce his name correctly, Jim not being one of them. While football showed a rare period of unity following the accident, some teams carried on as normal - like Spurs who still have no idea when they can move into the new house and Jose Mourinho who became even less positive than we've gotten used...

Spurs watch the grass grow, Pep gets Mancunian and a Football Tinder Catfish

10/28/2018
More
This week Tottenham Hotspur admitted they won't be moving into their new house until the new year, and revealed a scary new prospect in terms of things you can watch on TV about your football club. Which isn't half as scary as we face the prospect that BBC football could be coming from a delivery room near you... On the radio, it was all about Pep Music, but in a world exclusive, we expose a lie involving Tinder, Man City and...

England beat Spain, Messi toilets, and Harry in the jungle

10/22/2018
More
You could soon find Harry Maguire riding a unicorn in a wallet, and who knows what Harry Redknapp will be doing in the jungle. Whatever he does, chances are it won't be as many times as Lionel Messi does - at least according to Maradona. And bloody hell - Raheem Sterling scored for England as they thumped Spain (Literally in the case of Eric Dier and Sergio Ramos).

Once again, we couldn't do any of this without...

England behind closed doors, Jose to blame for Brexit and Lasagne is Italian

10/14/2018
More
Could the next change to football be in the commentary, taking a lesson from the golf course? Is Jose got his sights set on a career in politics once he gets the inevitable sacking from United? Speaking of sacking, what did Steve Bruce do with that cabbage? We actually don't know, we're seriously asking... And while we try and figure out who Mr Smith is, the footballer with the best name ever has let his presence been known. On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim...

George Dowell and Worthing FC

10/4/2018
More
This week we took the chance to do something a little different and spoke to someone who has had to overcome more than most to maintain their involvement in football, and in doing so has become the youngest chairman of a football club which is moving up through the leagues.

Mourinho mad in Manchester and Lacazette swears on TV

10/1/2018
More
Another bad week for Man Utd and we ask if Jeremy Kyle is the man they need at Old Trafford? Both to play in midfield AND resolve the relationship issues between Pogba and Jose. Which may mean keeping out Frank Lampard, in the same way that Derby kept out that Phil Jones penalty. And there's more trouble from French footballers with them dropping swear bombs on live TV. Or did they? On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson. If you want to join the team drop...

Headline writers went into overdrive this week with Young Boys and Cows. Meanwhile, Jim spots a gap in the market sets himself up as a milk dealer for the likes of Paul Pogba, who once again found himself subject of a Graeme Souness rant.

WTF is the Nations League? And Roy Keane lets rip on Whatsapp

9/12/2018
More
The international break has left us with just two questions. Firstly, is there anybody that understands the Nations League? And secondly, what happened to Gareth Southgates waistcoat? Elsewhere, managers and coaches have been busy on their phones, which have led to Jose Mourinho tripping up on the red carpet, and Keano getting in trouble for his management style. Meanwhile at one club in Paraguay, there's not just a dog on the pitch - it's in the dressing room and in the managers...

Beckham's new Badge and Bands FC

9/10/2018

It's the 200th episode of the Funny Football Show, On The Left Side but we've not stopped to get out the fizz and pull a party popper... there is far too much Soccer Satire to get through (despite it being the international break). This week David Beckham unveiled his new-look crest for fledgeling MLS team Miami CF, Crystal Palace striker Wilfred Zaha puts his hand in his pocket to help some teammates in need and we talk to the people behind Bands FC, a new project that combines the worlds...

England strong without Sterling and Footballs NEW Spiritual Leader

9/5/2018

On the latest funny football podcast, we bemoan the international break as the Premier League takes a (well earned) rest in favour of some friendly games that no one cares about some important Nations League qualifiers... which no one cares about. Seriously, even the players can't be bothered with Raheem Sterling and Adam Lallana declaring themselves unfit to play. Still, at least we've got Danny Welbeck eh? Jim is back and tackling all the big footballing issues and with the help of former...

Liverpool may have the best defensive record around at the minute, but all is not well between the sticks at Anfield. But between the sheets things seem to be going almost too well. And could the Anti-Facist dollar be the secret to financial stability in the lower leagues?Plus there's not even one mention of Mourinho, though he still manages to get a word in this episode.

Jose Demands respect, Pointless Pellegrini and Watfords new Winger

8/29/2018

Spurs get a big win at Old Trafford but everyone is speaking about Jose Mourinho again, rather than the Tottenham triumph, and there's a surprising name in the mix if the Portugese does go. But Jose isn't so sure that Manchester United actually lost the game. West Ham fans are pretty sure they've lost every league game so far, but their new boss reckons they have an ace up their sleeve. And Crystal Palace call in pest control. On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim...
