#131: Destroy 2,000 Years of Culture

5/21/2019
More
The season's over but we're not done! Not with fingers to point and shade to throw in the general direction of Frank Lampard and his coterie. We ask: where did it all go wrong? What do we do now? Do we dismantle or build upon what we've got? And there's the biggest question of all: how much do we want Villa to win the playoff final so we can go to town on the Derby fans?

BONUS: Griefcast

You know what happened.

#130: Taco Bill

5/15/2019
More
It's the playoff semi-final and the penalty that never was. And the VAR that doesn't exist. And the red cards that never were. And entirely routine things Frank Lampard claims he has never seen before in his extensive football career. Besides, we're only four-eighths of the way through the tie and a raucous Elland Road awaits Frank and whatever is left of our injury plagued squad, as Wembley beckons.

#129: Christa Ackroyd

5/8/2019
More
The season came to a withering climax at Ipswich, but it's onwards to the playoffs and another meeting with Frank Lampard's Derby County. Hopes are (mostly) high on the podcast; everything will be fine as long as the FA's disciplinary panel leaves us alone.

#128: I'm Her Real Dad

5/1/2019
More
It's anarchy at Elland Road as the season draws to a close. Attwell, Bamford, Grealish, Klich, Terry, Smith, Bielsa and Jansson! And somehow Berardi emerged as the voice of reason. It's Leeds United versus Aston Villa. And a strange sounding Chris Wilder.

#127: Silence of the Pigs

4/24/2019
More
How do you follow an Easter weekend like the one presented to us by Leeds United? You swear, you lash out, you're even pettier than normal. But among all the pain there remains a ray of hope and optimism - from an unlikely source. To Villa!

Duration:01:04:37

#126: Woodlice In The Car Park

4/14/2019
More
Recorded, straight after the Wednesday victory, this podcast is an adrenaline fuelled celebration of all that is good and great about the club. Promotion inches closer, with goals - and misses - from Patrick Bamford, as Preston and the Owls are vanquished. Gjanni Alioski continues to be gloriously weird, but not as weird as the idea that Neil Harris might just be a Leeds United hero. Pablo is a god, Tyler Roberts is ace, Kalvin Phillips is wonderful and we're 10 points the Premier League....

#125: Plain Naan

4/9/2019
More
We got Monked, but now we're relying on Garry (with two Rs) to do us a favour against the Blades. We hope Pat Bamford will find his shooting boots for Preston (spoiler alert: he does) and we're joined by a Leeds fan whose childhood was ruined.

Duration:01:04:06

#124: Shaking The Last Drops

4/3/2019
More
It's been a glorious weekend as United move back into the top two, Neil Harris's Millwall were sent swimming away and a perplexed Colin stood silently staring, his hands on his head. Oh and Pablo Hernandez. Just Pablo Hernandez.

Duration:01:07:39

#123: Gumming On A Pringle

3/27/2019
More
In this episode we demonstrate our extensive geographical knowledge. Or is it a load of Balkans? Gjanni has been upsetting people and staying onside, while BPF has risen, stony faced, to save the hopes of Northern Ireland and Leeds fans alike.

Bonus: The Extra Ball #001

3/24/2019
More
The first episode of The Extra Ball goes right back to the start, examining the strange Batesian universe we occupied when The Square Ball podcast launched in 2010. We’d just won at Old Trafford and were confidently predicting an easy cruise to promotion. Ahem. We've the inaugural round of Leeds United: Soccer Supremo and the first of your questions about the Mighty Whites.

#122: Punching A Few Kids

3/20/2019
More
Tough times abound heading into the international break, following defeat to the Blades, but we're in a bullish mood as we face down the last eight hateful games. Or is it eleven? Meanwhile, we've said farewell to United's finest raconteur, Bill Fotherby.

Duration:00:48:57

#121: Lovely Day

3/12/2019
More
With Bristol suitably processed at the weekend, Lee Johnson seems to have more chips than a potato. The terrifying prospect of promotion looms large, with Lewis Baker's Reading and Simon Tracey's Blades before us. But remember: please stay off the pitch!

Duration:01:04:21

#120: Cross Eyed Lion

3/6/2019
More
Has the glorious demolition of WBA injected new optimism into the podcast as we head to Bristol? Either way, Gjanni Alioski keeps on being Gjanni Alioski and our lives are more entertaining as a result. Join us and Victor on a stroll across Holbeck Moor to ER!

#119: Raised By Dogs

2/25/2019
More
Another win was secured against Bolton with a precision finish from Gjanni Alioski, but not before we'd seen a couple of squabbles; one involving Prince Pat and the other Pauper Phil. Our pedigree will face a tough test against QPR and WBA.

Duration:01:02:00

#118: Zumba Instructor

2/20/2019
More
Shaun Harvey is slithering out of the EFL, but not before he's fined us £200,000 for doing a spot of light gardening. Meanwhile, the Peacocks defeated DJ's Swans and face an entirely different beast at the weekend as the Trotters are in town.

Duration:01:03:22

#117: Throwing Salt

2/13/2019
More
The season enters its final third and there's a lot at stake: the Daniel James Shield, points against Swansea and a place in the Premier League. But do we actually want it? Shaun Harvey can't make up his mind either, but Kalvin keeps us smiling.

Duration:00:54:54

#116: Strings For Patrick

2/6/2019
More
After the Norwich defeat and missing out on Dan James, it's been a tough week, but at least Pat Bamford is back and ready to add another string to our bow. Nobility is the order of the day, though, as the first of many cups is now in Marcelo's hands.

#115: Wibbling Thighs

1/30/2019
More
The stars aligned perfectly as Leeds beat Rotherham on the day Steve Evans was fired. Will things Klich into place with Daniel James as the transfer window closes or will we be left crying gravy tears when we face Norwich at the weekend? ¡Leeds, Carajo!
