    Who pinged what off Harry Kewell’s helmet? Why are Crouchy, Nwankwo Kanu and a herd of feeding elephants forever linked? Who is friendliest out of Fiona Bruce, Bruno Martins Indi and Tony Insurance? Somehow all these mysteries and more are solved in an episode loosely based around team bonding.

    That Mike Dean Episode

    In a coup for the pod, a fourth chair is added to the circle for the first time and filled by none other than the king of referees, Mr Mike Dean. Collective minds and preconceptions are blown away as Mike reveals what the men in black wear to their Xmas fancy dress party, what really happens on Ref Camp and how many chickens he would have to see off per day in his old day job. Meanwhile Crouchy goes on an unexpected emotional journey that leaves him a changed man.

    That Injuries Episode

    What noise is it acceptable to make when being injured? Should you really laugh when an official goes down? And is it worse for a gentleman to be winded or hit in the unmentionables? The boys answer these seismic questions and more while designing the first Robot Ref and discovering an extraordinary new facet to the complex character of Wayne Rooney.

    That Tackles Episode

    That Tackles Episode

    The art of tackling is one celebrated on these shores more than anywhere else, so how do Premier League stars perfect it? The boys analyse Crouchy’s ‘red mist’, discuss whether Paul Scholes deserved his reputation for bad tackling and the ‘Great Shinpad Debate’ rears its head again. There’s a tale involving rubber gloves, a mouse and some curtains plus speculation about Arsene Wenger in a Blackburn bush.

Loving it!!

Heard about the podcast during a recent visit to the UK and now back in Australia I’m working my way through them all during my daily walks ....where I wonder what people make of the regular “laugh out loud” episodes. Loving the chat, the banter and the insights.

Binged the whole lot

Always loved Crouchy as a player but this pod is legendary.
Only listened for the first time a few days ago but have binged through 8 episodes already. Lots of good insights from a former pro and the two BBC lads could easily be myself and my mate having a few cold ones with Crouchy. Funny as!
