One Small Baileys ,

Class

I honestly thought this pod couldn’t get any funnier until I heard Getting Off With Iain Dowie (ep 24). I laughed so hard I had Kenco coming out of my nostrils

AHJSP ,

Funny beyond words.

What a brilliant thing, 3 Welshies loosely talking sport. Over beer, cider and pints of G&T ! Found it at episode 20 have now caught up completely and working through the clips on YouTube attached to each episode. 5 Stars from a proud Bristolian

rjd258 ,

Essential listening

I love these guys. They riff off each so easily and their stories are hilarious. More than that they share some really intelligent insight into sports I knew nothing about
