havent heard todays but tend to agree about the wwc generally

that said

for the mens game, they will tend to skip over the tactics and often the match itself for a focus on whatever catches kens eye, and a thread like nevilles account-manager-craig utterances does often run over a few shows

as is my habit i remembered since


who i think is ok as a foil in the company he keeps, but frankly lazy and disinterested by second captains standards

apologies if you're an ilxor baz, as i said you make a good everyman amongst the guardian scarfs like

like- he and ken share a tendency to challenge an accepted wisdom with an eg "is he?"

but glendenning will leave it there or follow up with a muttered trickle, whereas ken will launch off a coruscator

loathe the man tbh, can't think of anything that would make me unsub quicker, he's like the anti Ken
Ken's rugby trolling the other week was an absolute treat btw, loved the way he'd easily find a new angle of attack and make the other guests gasp anew haha

ive heard it's a cracker, but im behind avoiding sports tbh ;_;

glendenning is Only Here for the Banter now isn't he. like him fine but wince at every analysis of the week's promising young Bournemouth striker / Leicester midfielder / League Two manager ending in "...and he seems like a thoroughly decent bloke". Rushden era feeling esp phoned in.

ken early meanwhile is so fuckin sharp even his most "is he?" takes are a wild delicious ride.

basically this football podcast fanfic ends with baz warmly accepting he's out his depth and getting the pints in

not a huge fan of kens politics shows- hes a very poor presence with an expert to prod/direct, lacks direction, overly deferential, his intrusions are as unwelcome in this context as they are the lifeblood of the sports casts

but the recent one on the policing of ireland during the rising/independence/civil war etc was utterly essential stuff

right on cue, theyve made it free to all

"Fine Gael love policemen like hen parties love policemen strippers" is probably the best reasoning behind the RIC commemoration that I've heard yet tbh
