    The 'What Now?' Show - Failure Is An Orphan

    The 'What Now?' Show - Failure Is An Orphan

    In this episode of the 'What Now?' Show - recorded before the Bristol City game - perhaps just as well - the panel convenes to discuss

    Whether John Eustace is the right man to take the club forward next season? Promotion and Relegation Battles usually bring out the superstitions, with manager John Eustace himself admitting he didn't wear his hat against Sunderland to try and gain that extra bit of luck. What superstitions do the panel have? March player of the month. A wider talk on the player of the season, but also some unsung performers. Leaving aside Sam Szmodics, who else deserves a mention when it comes to the end of season awards?
    Roger Whiteside asks the questions; the answers are provided by Mike Delap, Ian Herbert, Rich Sharpe & Michael Taylor.

A Must For All Things Rovers

Lucky enough to have been a guest on this pod.

The guys work incredibly hard to produce the pod.

Audio levels

Great content, but the varying audio levels/quality on 22nd March were infuriating. One microphone massively loud, another contributor difficult to hear. Turning the up, and then down again continually took the edge off!

My favorite Rovers podcast

Not too waffley, nice and balanced between being honest & optimistic wthout going too far over the top.
