    S10 EP7: The End of Series 90's Football Quiz

    S10 EP7: The End of Series 90's Football Quiz

    S10 EP7: The End of Series 90's Football Quiz
    You know the drill by now. It's the QK end of series 90's Footballl Quiz. There will be factual inaccuracies. There will be at least one mention of Peter Shilton. And inevitably, Chris will lose... thanks for listening this series. We'll be back soon with Series 11 and another amazing line-up of guests (feel free to let us know topics / footballers / guests you'd like us to cover in the comments below) and in the meantime we'll see you very soon for the Patreon only Sweeper! Chapter 3 and 4 (the first of which drops this week) and all the usual QK Fan Club bonus content including the tombola prize draw. We've found even more 90's based goodies to give away! The latest addition is some of the Euro 96 yellow water bottles from the iconic Gazza goal celebration against Scotland. What's not to love...
    Thanks,
    Chris, Josh and Michael.

    S10 EP6: Paul Hawksbee on '90 Minutes' magazine and Fantasy Football League

    S10 EP6: Paul Hawksbee on '90 Minutes' magazine and Fantasy Football League

    S10 EP6: Paul Hawksbee on '90 Minutes' magazine and Fantasy Football League
    This week it's our absolute pleasure to welcome to QK a man who is part of the fabric, the DNA of 90's football in this country. From co-creating the brilliant '90 Minutes' football magazine to his time as a producer on Fantasy Football League (via time working for Ken Bates at Chelsea) it's a fascinating chat where we don't even manage to get round to discussing Spurs! Enjoy...
    In other news, on top of extended 'director of football cuts' of the main series episodes, all QK Fan Club members will now also get the episodes a whole WEEK EARLY - that's right, we now release on a Monday for QK Fan Club members and the following Monday for the non fan club listeners!
    We've also got the usual Patreon only bonus episodes every month - later this month it's chapter three of the second book in the Steve Bruce / Barnes murder mystery 'Sweeper!' with Ivo Graham. And on top of that a Patreon only QK Film Club deep dive and watch-a-long of the 1997 film 'Fever Pitch' based on Nick Hornby's seminal book of the same name.

    S10 EP5: Celtic in the 90's with Susie McCabe

    QKWHS - S10 EP5: Celtic in the 90's with Susie McCabe
    Yes, after ten series we finally get round to an entire episode on Scottish football in the 90's. Comedian Susie McCabe joins us to discuss her beloved hoops in the 90's - not the best spell in the clubs history as Rangers were very much the force in Scottish football at the time. But a fascinating period for the club with some real lows that made the highs that followed all the more sweeter...Enjoy! 
    Elsewhere we've got more team photo japes, and some dignity regained in the end of episode quiz...

    QKWHS - S10 EP4: This Month in the 90's - May 1997 with Matt Forde
    Joining us this episode is Quickly Kevin family, Mr Matt Forde, to discuss the month of May 1997 in football (and beyond)...
    New Labour win in an historic election landslide. Eric Cantona retires. Gary Barlow tops the charts. Fever Pitch hits the cinema screens. And Juninho scores the goal of the month... Enjoy! 
    We'll be back next week with a look at Celtic in the 90's (Yes, ten series in we finally give Scottish football some proper coverage!)

    S10 EP3: Jarlath Regan / Mick McCarthy's Republic of Ireland

    S10 EP3: Jarlath Regan / Mick McCarthy's Republic of Ireland

    S10 EP3: Jarlath Regan / Mick McCarthy's Republic of Ireland
    We're joined this week by the comedian, presenter and podcaster - Jarlath Regan. 
    We watch and discuss the superb documentary McCarthy's Park (available on youtube) which takes a look at Mick McCarthy's time in charge of ROI as they try and fail to qualify for the France 1998 World Cup. From the early seeds of troubles with Roy Keane, to hygienic tattoo parlours via some early (but not very effective) video analysis from Mick and his team over a few beers. It's a brilliant watch. And a different time. 
    Elsewhere in the postbag we discuss Peter Shilton's tiny hands. George Weah as Prime Minister of Liberia, and players wearing the wrong shirts. Enjoy!
    Jarlath's brilliant podcast 'An Irishman Abroad' is available wherever you get your podcasts and the book he mentions 'Champagne Football' by Mark Tighe + Paul Rowan is well worth a read.

    S10 EP2: Joe Wilkinson on Gillingham FC

    S10 EP2: Joe Wilkinson on Gillingham FC

    S10 EP2: Joe Wilkinson on Gillingham FC 
    This episode we chat to the brilliant comedian Joe Wilkinson about his love of Gillingham FC in the 90's and beyond. Not only a love letter to lower league football and all it entails, but this episode also contains perhaps one of our favourite ever (loosely) football related anecdotes... just why was he running? And where to? Or from? Answers on a postcard....

Genius

Hi lads, I’m as late as Benjamin Massinga’s tackle on Claudio Canniga in Italia 90 in discovering your podcast. Hitting the target as accurately as Cantona booting that Palace fan and I can’t speak ‘praisingingly’ (To quote Jon Sitton) enough about your work. Thanks 😀👍👍👍

The non flyng dutchman ,

More 90s footballers please

I’ve been listening to this podcast for years and I really enjoy it. It’s perfect for someone that lived in the 90s and fell in love with football.
However, there seems to be less and less ex-footballers on the show in the last few series. It’s great to have the odd guest like Suggs talk about Chelsea in the 90s, but what the listeners really want is an ex-footballer or ex-coach in the 90s telling us stories. It used to be one or two guest comedians talking about a documentary or their club, but mostly ex-footballers. Now it’s gone the other way.
More footballers please lads, I’m losing interest.

One From 'Ull ,

Prob the best football pod

Even though I was born in 91, I still love this pod. Genuinely so funny and easy listening
