    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 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.

Pure brilliance

Came across this by accident, oh how lucky am I.

listen to it on journey home from work usually stuck in traffic and everyone around must be wondering why I’m laughing out loud. Get some car stickers sorted to push the pod, And yes I would kiss the ring!!

The perfect pod.

This honestly has everything. 3 genuinely interesting people who are capable of holding interesting conversation & discussion with plenty of humour, interesting facts & anecdotes to quote. 3 mates in a pub serves as the template for its structure, + that’s all you need. Peter is so down to earth, keep it coming guys! I’m a student & this is my go to for making revising & writing up Sport Science notes!
