    Howe Do You Do, Kids?

    Howe Do You Do, Kids?

    Special guest alert! The premier league is back after what feels like the 20th international break of the season, and whilst most of the Whistleblowers return, one of us is still waiting for their private jet to land in time for match day 12. Thankfully for you we bring in comedian extraordinaire Stuart Law to assess the recent managerial chances in the league and to immediately argue as to whether Gerrard will be deity or disaster. It’s non-plussed faces abound when it comes to Newcastle’s appointment of Eddie Howe and we ask it’ll be enough to keep them up, starting with this weekend’s must-win game versus Brentford. Liverpool vs Arsenal and Leicester v Chelsea get the Whistleblowers once-over and we finish up asking how gutted Spurs fans will actually be if West Ham take a Champions League slot above them this year (hint: very). All this and more in your ever-forward facing Whistleblower’s podcast.

    Big Boys vs Young Boys

    Big Boys vs Young Boys

    After a raucous midweek of European football the three unwise men gather together once again to debate whether Conte has immediately put Spurs in contention for a Champions League spot, ponder who will be their Victor Moses and if need to send Man Utd a bouquet for doing them a favour last week. No one has a single clue as to which Man Utd will turn up for the Saturday lunchtime derby with Pep’s collective but they all assume it will involve Fred and not Pogba, while there are murmurations of belief that West Ham can take Liverpool all the way on Sunday afternoon. All this and more on your latest forward-facing episode of The Whistleblowers.

    The Battle Of Who Could Care Less

    The Battle Of Who Could Care Less

    This week the Whistleblowers triage convene to discuss the P45 Derby between Spurs and Manchester United and idly speculate as to who goes first and when. That’s after declaring West Ham your 2021/22 Carabao Cup winners and celebrating the end of Manchester City’s vice-like grip on everyone’s favourite midweek trophy. Eyes glance towards future Arsenal manager Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester team hosting the Gunners in the lunchtime kick off and then we get philosophical as Championship’s Mark Smith declare that Norwich City should be banned from the Premier League for at least three seasons for failing to even bother. All this and more scurrilous chat on this week’s Whistleblowers.

    I Wish It Was Sunday, That’s My Football Fun Day

    I Wish It Was Sunday, That’s My Football Fun Day

    The unholy trinity preview Match Day 9 and a focus on a mouth watering Sunday of fixtures including Brentford vs Leicester, West Ham vs Spurs and the big one: Manchester United vs Liverpool where we debate whether the visitors are the best team in the Premier League right now. Before that we spend the first half of the pod trying to measure just how far Arsenal have fallen and whether they have much further to drop, and we give an unheralded Wolves side their due while asking whether the Bielsa bandwagon has been fully abandoned. All this and much more on your weekly dose of Whistleblowers.

    Match Day 8: Same But Different

    Match Day 8: Same But Different

    Fresh from an international break that only saw one club bought by a foreign superpower with limitless cash, the Whistleblowers return to cast their eye over the defensive crisis at Manchester and ask whether Leicester can put them in a tailspin. After mulling over whether Brentford can continue their unlikely run of form while hosting Chelsea, we ask which team is more 4 REAL: Everton or West Ham. The pod ends on a upbeat note by declaring the end of football as we know it, and an inevitable Spurs defeat up at St James at the hands of a newly minted Newcastle United. All this and more on this week’s Whistleblowers Pod.

    Chelsea’s Queen takes Liverpool’s Pawn

    Chelsea’s Queen takes Liverpool’s Pawn

    As the evenings begin to draw in and the season begins to take shape, the autumnal gloom descends on a few teams and your Whistleblowers trio debate who is most likely to enter the international break after GW7 looking over their shoulders. We consider whether another defeat could be catastrophic for Spurs, if Brendan Rodgers might be a little concerned by a game against Palace and if Benitez could send Ole into a tailspin. Looking at teams in better shape, we marvel at the difference between Big Game Pep and ‘Oh It’s Bloody Watford’ Pep and ask if Liverpool will shake off the Brentford defeat from last week. Throw in some snide comments about your favourite team and it’s another derisive and action packed Whistleblowers.

    Check out Review From The Terrace that kicks off with distinctly Scottish view of Braveheart. You’ll love it!

breathe

love the podcast normally but please let the guests speak, kind of the point inviting them on

Andy Emmanuel ,

Really enjoy it......

Always look forward to The Whistleblowers podcast, have listened since the start and it`s a good listen. Martin Gritton talks well and provides an ex-Pros angle. Just wish it was a bit longer as it sometimes feels a bit rushed. Keep up the good work.......

Bj and the bear ,

Such a shame

Genuinely a funny and engaging podcast when Mark Webster hosted, now just a run of the mill bore-draw
