Sloping pitch

Hancock still at his best. Irreverent footy chat

sportpaul123456 ,

Just brilliant

Well worth a listen. No sycophantic nonsense, real stories, real insight, without the inane ‘banter’ between presenters.
For anyone who is supporting a struggling club there’s also Chris’ ‘Oldham’ updates. Guaranteed to make supporting your club feel better.
