We made it – another milestone(ish)! After last week’s “not a proper show”, Mike returned to join Dan, Andy and Chris in celebrating the big event. There was the return of the “Pubcast Game Show”, plenty of talk about nonsense, arguments and even a little bit of football. Plus a new iTunes review and a thanks to our listeners, hopefully you’ll all be with us for another 150!

It was a distracted, feisty show this week as Mike, Dan, Andy, Jerome and Chris attempted to talk about football but often found themselves distracted by pretty much everything else (including Chicken Kievs and bedtime attire).
When they did manage to focus on the beautiful game there was a heated argument about Jack Wilshere and nationality rules, reviews of the key incidents from last weekend and plenty more!
There were plenty of naughty boys in this week’s Pubcast but unfortunately the majority of them were on the panel. Whether it was Mike letting his ego run wild, Dan refusing to let other people change the subject, Andy admitting his love of reality TV or Jim, well, being Jim, it was something of a turbulent show!
There was plenty of other chat however – “Hollywood” football, “non-Hollywood” football, match-fixing, reckless driving, spying, shoe laces, shirt swapping and much, much more. Not a show to be missed.
This week’s show can only be described as one of the best in Pubcast history!
Not only did Mike return (boo!) and make a somewhat mixed attempt at continuing the game show theme from last week’s show but he also introduced an utterly fantastic “game show host” jacket. Of course, Jim took it upon himself to adopt said jacket (and see the show picture, its hideous).
But further to that the boys (Mike, Jim, Dan, Chris and a late arriving Andy) had a rollicking good time arguing about how good Arsenal are, how embarrassing United were, deadline day, Hastings, the Heart, the Football Blogging Awards and a load more stuff. Definitely not a show to be missed!
With Coxon MIA this week many thought the Pubcast would fall to pieces. However up stepped Jim who took the reigns and hosted a great show and to be honest no one even realised Mike was missing! The Pubcasters headed to Henry’s to chat about the week’s football whilst basking in glorious sunshine. To say there was a “sight” or two to be held wandering around Canary Wharf was an understatement. There was a début from new Pubcaster “Gooner Chris” (as Jim quickly named him) who played the full 45 minutes and impressed his new team mates on his first appearance. It was the first round of the Premier League this weekend and with last week’s Internationals and all of the rest of the Football League there was loads to discuss, including Arsenal’s dismal start to the season (sorry Chris…………I’m not sorry).
The boys got together on Wednesday for their weekly chat about all things football (or “fitba” for all the Scots who were in London during the week) and looked back at last weekend’s results and ahead to the internationals and the return of the Premier League. There was talk about shocking goalkeeping, the poor bar service and, of course, birthday boy Mario Balotelli…
p.s. Now we’re not the most professional guys in the world, but at least we have the good grace to admit when we need to #learntodescribebetter…unlike the Mirror and their shocking badge mix up!
The lads were excited this week as they re-convened ahead of the new season to give their annual pre-season predictions. Looking at the leagues from the Conference up the boys (Mike, Dan, Jim and Andy) gave their views on who’ll succeed, who’ll fail, who’ll surprise and how they think their own clubs will fare (don’t worry, there wasn’t too much Bale chat).
On top of that there was the usual skewed look at transfer news, pre-season results, funny stories and a (sort of) apology to Celtic fans.
