S02E01: Frank Skinner

We’re back, we’re back… we’re finally back! This week we’re joined by a titan of 90s football; co-host of Fantasy Football, Perrier award winning stand-up comedian, lyricist of Three Lions and big West Brom fan, Frank Skinner. We cover all the main subjects; Bobby Gould as West Brom manager, England in the 90s, Euro 96, Three Lions and, of course, the show that put football fandom on the map: Fantasy Football.

The 'Quickly Kevin...' 90s Football Quiz - S01E12

As Series 1 slams to a close, we're delighted to be bringing you the first of what will eventually be a series ending tradition: The Quickly Kevin 90s football quiz. The team taking on Josh and Chris for 'the ashes of 90s football' (a burnt packet of football stickers) are friends of the show; want-away Aston Villa fan and comedian Tom Craine and Wales and Swansea's favourite funny son Ellis James. Through a range of incredibly niche questions, two teams battle for the ultimate prize; some...

Iain Dowie: S01E11

There a few 90s football faces more recognisable than our guest this week; a rare breed of clever footballer, the one and only Iain Dowie. On this show, we walk through Iain’s career, navigating the obvious points (Luton’s shirt sponsors) as well as visiting Iain’s former career in missile engineering. Plus, we discuss the notorious night in Stockport when Iain scored one of the greatest own goals ever scored, then broke his leg, all while Florin Răducioiu got some shopping done at Harvey...

Matt Forde on 90s Forest: S01E10

On the show this week we’ve got comedian and broadcaster, and Nottingham’s own(!), Matt Forde to dissect the fortunes of Nottingham Forest in the 90s. When you think about Forest in the 90s, all the big names echo through the sands of time; Brian and Nigel Clough, Frank Clark, Ian Woan, Steve Stone, Andrea Silenzi, Stuart Pearce, Stan Collymore and Bryan Roy - the list goes on and on. But the one big name ever-present at both the City Ground and the training ground throughout the 90s turns...

Ivo Graham on Steve Bruce's 'Striker': S01E09

This week comedian Ivo Graham joins us in the studio as we focus solely on one of British literature’s greatest authors; not “old Bill Shakespeare”, but former Manchester United captain Steve Bruce. If you wander into your local book shop and head straight for the classics, it’s almost certain you won’t be confronted with the sacred text ‘Striker’ by Steve Bruce. So unlikely a career choice was it for Steve Bruce to have turned to crime fiction, that for many years, people refused to...

Nish Kumar: S01E08

This week comedian Nish Kumar joins us in the ‘Quickly Kevin…’ studio to discuss ‘Premier Passions’, the documentary series following Sunderland and then manager Peter Reid’s retrospectively harrowing attempt to establish the club as a Premier League force in the late 90’s. A fly on the wall look at how precisely NOT to run a football club, where boardroom level concerns about bathroom fixtures and Terence Conran designed stadium interiors took precedent over signing a striker capable of...

Ian Pearce: S01E07

Premier League winner Ian Pearce. Jack Walker, the SAS, Stuart Ripley... in the mid-90s Blackburn really was the place to be (if you weren't in Manchester). We met up for a chat with one of the stars of their title-winning side Ian Pearce and found out who from that team he still had in his phone, why there was a car park behind the goal at Stamford Bridge and if David Batty has gone off the grid. Plus there is huge excitement as we open an untouched packet of 1995 Merlin stickers we have...

Jim Rosenthal: S01E06

ITV in the 90s were famous for three things; Deirdre Barlow, adverts and our guest this week, Jim Rosenthal. He's covered 8 World Cups, even getting embedded with the England team for Italia 90. He was pitchside reporter the night Gareth Southgate missed in the shootout against Germany in Euro 96. And, the greatest honour of them all, once did an FA Cup draw with Graham Kelly. Plus we finally start a bespoke section that literally no-one demanded: 90s footballers spotted on water slides.

Tom Craine discusses 'The Impossible Job': S01E05

The Impossible Job is simply the greatest ever documentary about football (excluding Danny Baker’s Own Goals and Gaffs 2). A behind the scenes look at England’s failure to qualify for the 1994 World Cup it is heartbreaking, poignant and packed to the brim with Carlton Palmer. This week we sat down with comedian Tom Craine (writer of Josh and the excellent new BBC3 series Climaxed) to discuss what it was like to rewatch it 23 years on.

Miles Jacobson OBE on Champ Man: S01E04

Niclas Alexandersson, Cherno Samba, Ibrahima Bakayoko, Tommy Svindal Larsson, Freddy Adu. If these names mean anything to you, there's a really high chance you're going to love this episode. Our guest this week to discuss this topic, is the studio director of the makers of Football Manager, Miles Jacobson OBE; huge Watford fan who even gets to sit in Sir Elton John's seat when he can't make a game.

Paul Merson: S01E03

This week we're joined by the legendary Paul Merson to discuss playing for England, Steve Morrow getting suplexed by Tony Adams after winning the League Cup, living with Gazza and much more. We have some awful examples of footballers acting, plus there's a wonderful listener contribution on the subject of having a childhood kick-about with an actual real-life 90s footballer.
