Merch request

After the last pod, can we get T-shirts or mugs with “Why are you being such a d!ck?” on them? Thanks. Keep up the great work.

If you only want surface level analysis the pod is entertaining

Very similar to sky or espnfc or any other “cover the entire league” coverage. Very narrative driven. Pretty much take what is trending on twitter or whatever sky talk about and welp so will these guys. Use to have more varied analysis but now it seems pretty mainstream

“It’s Still A Foul!”

The Drunken Sot whined on 4 March after Manchester Divided were again humiliated by Man City. Reminded listeners how The Drunken Sot soiled his integrity when Lady Alice covered his pub tab. *** “I had no inkling it was coming,” Andy Hunter at 2:01 29 January on the start of Klopp’s Retirement Tour. Perfectly sums up the awareness and knowledge of Taylor, The Drunken Sot, and Giggling Maxi. *** We Want More! 9:40 of the pod on 29 December 2023, Maxi claimed Arsenal needed to “stick it in the mixer” during its humiliating failure nil-2 vs West Ham, and Nicky Bandini quickly ground up Maxi before he ran to another feeble angle. We Want More! More of Ms. Bandini quickly slicing and dicing Maxi! More of Ms. Bandini helping Maxi humiliate himself! We Want More!
