    Ep. 50 - End Of A (Half) Century

    Welcome to our 50th episode, and we celebrate our half century with former Sky Sports touchline reporter Geoff Shreeves. Talk turns to Geoff's experiences working with the biggest, and moodiest managers in the Premier League: from the likes of Klopp and Guardiola, to - of course - Sir Alex Ferguson. Choccy tells us how he liked to swerve the media, and we discuss Geoff and Brian's shared musical passions.

It’s not just football.

What I like about the show is how you get to know something interesting about a guest who you would normally not be interested in.

A breath of fresh air

Not your typical football pod, great guests, great chat from people that love football and the other great things in life.
Feels like a good blether with your mates down the pub.

Best podcast going 🥳

Fantastic podcast with a great variety of guests and topics covered. Brian McClair has so many wonderful anecdotes in every episode. There’s always a great rapport between Brian, the presenters and the guests. The sound quality rivals the highest ranking podcasts. I cannot recommend this enough!
