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...

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...

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...

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.

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...
