    Episode 33: Dee Allum & Watford F.C.

    The lovely Dee Allum, hilarious stand up comedian, picks her favourite Watford players this week - and true to the Hornet's recent transfer policy, it's a really mixed bag. Players of all levels, nationalities and appearance records feature in the side, but truthfully 'tis just a preamble until Dee tackles the most difficult selection of all; which of Watford's 648 managers since 2010 will she pick as her assistant?

    Episode 32: Kyle Walker & Manchester City F.C.

    Episode 32: Kyle Walker & Manchester City F.C.

    You've seen him on camera presenting football on Sky Sports, now hear the cool-headed Blues fan Kyle Walker pick his Man City Ultimate XI. Featuring a host of talent from the recent era of City success, but also containing an incredibly rogue shout for left-back, which we always welcome on this show. Kyle's team is packed full of class, in truth an XI of the players he didn't pick would give anyone a run for their money, but listen now to find out the answer to the question everyone is thinking - does Kyle's namesake make it in the Man City Ultimate XI?

    Episode 31: Jon Harvey & Tottenham Hotspur F.C.

    Episode 31: Jon Harvey & Tottenham Hotspur F.C.

    The satirist, writer and a 'fan for all seasons' Jon Harvey is famous for sending up those in power with a deluded sense of entitlement, and clearly this is also his approach to managing a squad of footballers as he attempts to balance 6 (SIX) midfielders into his all-star Tottenham Hotspur Ultimate XI. And, honestly, I think he manages it - yes, some players will be knocking furiously on the door of his manager's office to ask him why he insists on playing them out of position. Or why, when he has picked only three defenders, is one of them also being charged with trying to win the Golden Boot. But if there's one thing Jon knows it is speaking truth to power, and this "romantic failure" of a Spurs Ultimate XI certainly does that.

    Episode 30: Louis Jones & Coventry City F.C.

    Episode 30: Louis Jones & Coventry City F.C.

    Driven, ambitious, talented. All words that can be used to describe both this week's guest and most of the Coventry City Ultimate XI team that he selected. Louis Jones is the creator of Surprise Shirts, which has fast become the must-have subscription for football shirt collectors, and he puts his entrepreneurial skills to good use in selecting his Sky Blues side. Whilst the young innovator may not have known Coventry's heyday as a Premier League side, the team he picks features top tier quality, club legends, and eclectic characters including one player that Louis dubs having "the attitude of a Sunday League player with the talent of a Champions League player".

    Episode 29: Glenn Moore & Sheffield Wednesday F.C.

    All hail the genius jokester Glenn Moore as he gives us his Sheffield Wednesday Ultimate XI. With quite a unique journey to becoming a Wednesday fan, we shouldn't be surprised that Glenn's maverick side features a myriad of playing styles and moral attitudes from players that mostly toiled outside of the Premier League for his beloved Owls. Packed with quality, criminals, and the best shirt sponsor in history, immerse yourself in this hilarious episode.

Great podcast!

Enjoyed this. This and Dion Dublin’s gaffer tapes are the two best new football podcasts I’ve listened to in 2020.
