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!

We were blessed this week on the Pubcast with the presence of someone who actually knows something about Football! Tom from the Sunday People (the newspaper Mike’s Mum and Dad read) joined Mike, Dan, Chris and Andy for the start of the show to give his thoughts on England, correct some pronunciations and make an error that someone covering the game at Wembley tonight really shouldn’t…
Aside from that there was a look at the results from around the globe, the return of the A-League, a heated Frank Lampard related argument and about four still alive football personalities that the Pubcast killed off. Plus the boys revealed the origin of a peculiar listener nickname!
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!
Mike, Dan and Chris got together this week to debate the increasingly improving Arsenal, the turgidly dull Chelsea and whether United are better than Spurs.
In an epic 50 minute show the lads also covered a whole gamut of stuff – sexism, streaking, protesters, salacious gossip and a football legend. Plus TWO trivia questions and some cracking listener insights.
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.
After a storming show last week the boys re-convened this week to discuss the fall out from the World Cup qualifiers. There was some heated debate between Mike, Dan, Andy and Chris about whether or not England were THAT bad and a look at the results across the rest of Europe and beyond.
On top of that there was a bizarre mixture of topics – domestic violence, incest, naughty physios, testimonials and sectarian violence against a Catholic Boxer Dog. Plus the discovery of probably the greatest football video of all time…
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!
