    S11 EP3: Geoff Norcott on AFC Wimbledon
    Joining us this episode to discuss AFC Wimbledon is comedian Geoff Norcott.
    We discuss his time as a program seller at Plough Lane, Sam Hammam and his Selhurst Park elephant, and the Crazy Gang in the 90's...
    Elsewhere we've got all the usual 90's O Clock news and postbag - Di Canio's goal record comes in for some criticism and of course Peter Shilton rears his head once more...and some big news about the Quickly Kevin Fan Club 2.0 re-boot (headlines: it's better and cheaper!) including the announcement that yes, we'll back for the World Cup in November and December as we go 'topical' with a fans eye view of the tournament and three episodes a week for QK Fan Club members.
    Head on over to www.anotherslice.com/quicklykevin for more info and a free listen to EP1 of Steve Bruce's Striker! with Ivo Graham.

    S11 EP2:  Lee Sharpe
    We've been trying to get this man on the show for years ever since his fan club was put under our noses and it's safe to say he didn't disappoint! From Torquay to Bradford via Manchester United, Leeds, Sampdoria and an incredible story about his short lived spell in Iceland! It's our absolute pleasure to welcome to the show the creator of the Sharpe Shuffle, Mr Lee Sharpe...
    Elsewhere in the postbag we discuss whether Denis Irwin was overrated (he wasn't - he was excellent) and was George Weah's secret to success an excessive amount of Zzzz's ?.... 
    See you next week when our guest is the brilliant comedian Geoff Norcott who discusses his time as a die hard Wimbledon fan in the 80's and 90's Crazy Gang era... that episode is available NOW to QK Fan Club members over at www.anotherslice.com/quicklykevin
    Thanks, Chris, Josh and Michael

    S11 EP1: Peter Reid
    We're back! And what an honour it is to open the new series with a titan of the football world...
    When we first sat down to re-watch Premier Passions all those years ago, we always hoped this day would come so we could finally say the words: "Welcome to Quickly Kevin, Peter Reid".
    Not fouling Maradona, being a genuinely decent player manager, cheering up Sunderland, it's all here!
    Elsewhere we've got all the usual 90's O Clock news and postbag and some big news about the Quickly Kevin Fan Club 2.0 re-boot (headlines: it's better and cheaper!) including the announcement that yes, we'll back for the World Cup in November and December as we go 'topical' with a fans eye view of the tournament and three episodes a week for QK Fan Club members.

    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.
    Thanks,
    Chris, Josh and Michael.

    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...

Loved it from day one. My staple podcast.

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 😀👍👍👍

Brogliogty ,

Funny yet a little too pleased with itself

I really enjoy this podcast. It’s nostalgic, funny and the guests have been excellent. However, there’s only so many times you can hear Josh Widdocombe describe something as “extraordinary” and endure all the “weren’t they idiots?” sniggering. It’s all become a little self congratulatory and spoils the show.
