Pat Nevin: S03 EP06 Our guest this week is a Chelsea, Everton and Tranmere legend. A man as comfortable writing music reviews for the NME, or enjoying a bowl of goulash whilst reading Kafka as he was evading a crunching Stuart Pearce tackle. It’s Scottish winger, indie DJ, and all round renaissance man, Pat Nevin. Plus we’ve got more ‘Frying with laughter’, a tall tale of Gazza hijacking a kids football match, and we explore the myth and merit of match day whip rounds. Can all that...

Elis James on Swansea City: S03 EP05 Our guest this week is friend of the show and Welsh football’s favourite non-footballing son, Elis James. In this episode we dive headfirst into his beloved Swansea City A.F.C. in the 90s; The Vetch stadium on its last legs, a disastrous series of owners and managers seemingly determined to destroy the club and a cantankerous mascot hell bent on starting a fight at every opportunity. Plus we further explore Mark Hughes being good at volleys, share...

Series 3 - Episode 2 - Lee Dixon In terms of value for money, there can be few more astute signings than the £375,000 George Graham paid Stoke City for Lee Dixon in January 1988. 25% of arguably the greatest 90s defence, Lee finished his Arsenal career with four league titles, three FA Cup winners medals, a UEFA Cup Winner's Cup medal and infamously a runners-up medal in the latter competition too. But it was the first of his league championship medals that intrigued us most; the night...

James Richardson / Football Italia - S03 E01

Series 3 begins with one of the central protagonists in the cast of 90's football; James Richardson. Synonymous with a golden period of Calcio, the sight of James holding aloft a pink paper on Football Italia was as regular an occurrence as a Baggio goal. We get the gossip on all the big topics; did Paul Ince ring James up for tips on Tomb Raider? What was Elvis Costello like? And did James ever have a night out with Gazza and Jimmy Five Bellies? We’ve also got big updates on both James...

11/20/2017

Our guest this week is friend of the show, comedian and writer Tom Craine. The subject of discussion is the 1997 Peterborough documentary 'There's Only One Barry Fry'. The documentary features the fall and fall of Peterborough in their relegation season of 1996/97 against the backdrop of 'big personality' Barry Fry's new leadership as manager and, sort-of, chairman. Plus there's news on a John Wark fan club nowhere near Ipswich and the social media goings of Mark Kennedy.

Our guest this week did it all as a player; five league titles, one European cup, one FA cup, and three league cups, as part of one of the greatest Liverpool teams ever assembled. But it was with the BBC in the 90s that Mark Lawrenson came into his own as one of the most recognisable pundits of the embryonic Premier League; all while juggling a marketing gig for Guinness and the surely nightmarish role of Keegan's defensive coach in Newcastle's most attacking period. Plus, we find out what...
