Good stuff again. Just a minor point as it’s been mentioned two podcasts in a row now: Gerrard started the first three league games of the season (WBA, City, Arsenal) in the AMC spot and was generally poor bar the City game where he had to drop in a bit more after Lucas’s injury. I’m not worried about him moving back there though. His form has improved, he’s adapting to Rodgers’ style a lot better and it’s still is his best position.
Love the show. Great insight into Liverpool, the fans, the city and the club by serious people who don’t take themselves too serious. The average fan will learn more from this show about formations and tactics than 10 years of talksport and 606.
Sorry if that makes the show sound dull; its funny, passionate, informed, honest (never fails to give credit to the opposition where its due) . And the music is consistently great and has me tracking down bands on iTunes .
Also listen to the Tuesday club, (davies has apologised so let’s get over it.) The Spurs Show, The whistleblowers, STOP! Hammer Time ( for lovers of irresponsible speculation, wild theorising and potentially libellous songs about overweight former players) . The common theme with all these shows is that they are even more enjoyable when things are going badly for their team, I’ll probably stop listening when they start winning trophies.
Podcasts are the new “when Saturday comes”, the antidote to talkshite radio and 606. Savage, Hansen, lawrenson, shearer, collymore, beglin, crooks etc prove that you can win many, many trophies and caps and still have nothing interesting or informed to say.
The Chelsea fancast is run buy an appalling bunch of wankers; tactical pigmies all, who talk utter shite and sing offensive songs. It’s so bad you can smell the beer breath and B.O. through the speakers.
I’m a Chelsea fan.
Keep up the good work
Really enjoyed the Sally Pepper song.
