We only planned to do a quick one but we can’t help ourselves. Get a Brentford fan on the podcast and ask him a few questions. Nothing more, nothing less.
But we had to talk about the Burton game didn’t we? And the furore over United ticket allocations. Plus we need a bit of music to break things up. And a couple of quickfire questions about the all important matters of the day such as all day breakfasts and what players do on their day off.
As ever, we went off on a tangent at numerous points covering such important matters as:
- Whether Graham Barrow would make a good debt collector
- How Sam Allardyce was the pioneer of modern football
- The former Brentford player who got caught wife swapping
- The heart breaking tale of Conor Sammon’s abrupt exit from Old Trafford
- Why there’s an Ellgren jacket somewhere adorned with Steve Perryman’s signature in biro
- And some slightly confusing crossed wires where someone proclaimed Andy Delort to be doing a great job at Fleetwood….
