On The Left Side is THE funny football podcast. No tactical analysis or heat maps here, just a sideways look at the very best stories from the beautiful game in a handy bite-sized form. From commentary catastrophes to managerial misdemeanours. Jim guides you through a satirical look at the last seven days of football funny.

The Final Kick
For the first time Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson host the show together as they look back over almost 300 episodes of soccer silliness. It also features a special introduction by Sir David Attenborough, who pays tribute to the impact the show has had on the people of planet Earth.
Thanks for Listening.
Roy Keane gets annoyed, Villa survive and we say goodbye
As the longest season ever comes to an end, we look at the role music played in deciding on who would be relegated from the Premier League. As a result, Watford issue an apology and we learn the secrets behind how the Villa go about signing players. Even that isn't enough to cheer Roy Keane up. Across the road, Birmingham City retire Jude Billingham's shirt number after only 44 games, as if by design we retire this show after 5 years and nearly 300 episodes.
Ups, downs, sackings and signings
Leeds are back where they belong (which we assume means they will no longer be just off the M1/M62), Liverpool have had their trophy, and more great English talent is headed for Germany with a surge of Beatlemania, and it's all in this latest episode.
On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson. Additional voices this week from Ben Nickless, and Damien St John. The theme music was written and performed by Katalina Kicks. Incidental music covered by Creative Commons 3.0: Asking Questions by Rafael Krux,

City beat UEFA, Jose heads to Amazon and we lose a footballing giant
Man City got the most important result of their season when their squad of superstar lawyers pulled it out of the back at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. A measly ten million euro fine annoyed Jose Mourinho, who finally gets his own TV show. And we said goodbye to world cup winner Jack Charlton - the man that led the Republic of Ireland to glorious memories.
