While Nathan was off watching a Ryder Cup victory for Donald Tusk's boys, we were hard at work cheering on another week's acca. It was so near, yet so far, but we dust ourselves off and get back on the 'oss this week. We actually have a North of the Wall bet, too - and we almost read it out correctly! All that and more on this week's Football Bet Club.
This week we celebrate a victorious weekend of betting by looking forward to another round of weekend football, we go North of the wall for our Scottish betting master, Johnno spots a strange coincidence in the Liverpool VS PSG game and Nathan wins some unexpected and surprising accolades.
What a random season this is becoming. After many sole blames, we have yet another sole win week, this time for Justin. This weeks show almost almost didnt make it out due to technical difficulties, which would have spared Justin the shame of getting the quiz question wrong. He made up for by bringing an extra quiz challange, which isn't the only new segment!
This week the boys debate the merits of spirograph vs etch a sketch, we ask whether Watford are the new leicester and Nathan proves that his pronunciation of English towns is Just as bad as his pronunciation of foreign towns.
This week, we dissect an ugly sole-win for Nathan's Nathan bet, and discuss how the FBC acca last week was both influenced by and had an influence on the early-season managerial merry-go-round. That, plus a tricky nationalities round in the quiz, and news of Big Ronny's move up to the board room. Let's face it, though. It all pales in comparison to the news of SAIDO SCORING.
SOLE BLAME.......AGAIN! For the second time in three weeks the lads miss out on the jackpot by one result. Sorry. We discuss a shed load of stuff....including the Man City Documentary. Mainly focusing on Peps frequent use of the word "guys" and his ability to move magnets on a whiteboard with aggressive tenancies. Please do leave us a review on itunes if you like what you hear.
This week, we make the most of Johnno's return from the hotel WiFi to discuss our predictions for the coming season, as well as running the rule on tips past and present as we head into our third acca of the season. That, plus apologies (sincere and insincere), and a dastardly Mexican-themed quiz from David Macdonald, make this week's Football Bet Club.
As we return with our first set of bets we think about how you pick without form to go on, we discuss some of the recent signings and managerial changes and Justin shows complete and utter ignorance of all things Ebbsfleet.
EVERY SINGLE one of our shows has a reference to Champ 01/02 so Justin and I chat for a (very long) about the best game ever to be invented. Best moments, worst moments and the hardest job of all, choosing a best 11\. It all goes well, but i fear we have made one huge omission. For info on the game including a free download go to https://www.champman0102.co.uk/ ( these are the proper experts).
its that time that comes only once every four years where we all become giddy as schoolgirls at the thought of the oncoming festival of football that is the world cup. in this special we speculate over winners, scorers, teams to dissapoint and teams to surprise as well as looking back at some of our favourite moments from the world Cup from including names like Voller, Rijkaard, Baggio, Schillaci, Linekar, Oliseh, Zubizaretta, Milla, Heguita and many many more
The Wildcard joins Nathan, Johnno and Justin for an end of season review which is heavy in both content and laughs. The boys discuss the Bet of the Year, Worst Bet of the Year and Moment of the Season. A belter so its well worth sticking with! The end of season celebration will be at the Good Samaritans Pub in Whitechapel from 7.30pm to watch the Champions League Final. All are welcome. Stay tuned for a World Cup Episode and an additional Champ Man 01/02 episode in the summer months....
Though last week's was confusingly called episode number 97, this week's FBC offering is actually number 96 in our catalogue. We crown Greg the 2017-8 champion, discuss (and contest) the need for a 'pasillo', before looking ahead to a week of fixtures that could see us waltz off with a healthy profit into the summer sunshine. Yeah, right. Other Business: - Explicit content saved for the completists. - Live footage of Greg's championship celebrations:...
A good week for first touches, a bad week for karaokes. This week, we discuss Justin's Sunday League return, consider which teams are already on the hotel wi-fi, and bicker over the runners-and-riders for our 'Worst Bet of the Year' award. Plus (or minus?) Greg's phone-in from Mexico, all on this week's Football Bet Club podcast.
This week we suffer a ridiculous technical Malfunction, Greg is having a party in mexico, west brom fall foul of fair play and most important of all the champagne is cascading as we revel in another victorious and profitable weekend
This week we discuss east Londons most prominent and competitive Annual fixture the Nathan Testimonial, we analyse the wildcards calcified feet and over sized shin pads and we wonder why every English goalkeeper has turned rubbish this world cup year
