No Pod on the Tyne today or tomorrow. They are recording it after the match tomorrow.

Just finished reading the Athletic piece on the decline of Hull City. Fascinating read.

:lol: :lol: :lol:
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

"What is a club in any case?
Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.
It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love." – Sir Bobby Robson

Not especially doubting that bit but if you read the whole article Stephen Ireland comes across as a bit of a Walter Mitty
"Lots of young fellas runnin' around in shorts, that's the kind of think you like looking at, and I bet you like that too, only you're probably imagining what they'd look like without shorts, you're sitting there imagining that with a big smile on your face, ya dirty fecker"

Makes you wonder if the likes of Doumbia and Ferreyra are on similar deals.

Finding the Pod on the Tyne a really tough listen. I find Taylor Payne just comes across as a casual fan with his knowledge of football. I know the pod is free but I pay for the Athletic for the superior and in depth analysis.

It's absolute s***, not one thing mentioned concerning the takeover unless I fell asleep during it (maybe). Least said about Taylor Payne's hosting the better.

I wish all podcasts were like the Totally Football one, where in the description it divides the audio up into chapters, meaning you can skip to the bits you're actually interested in listening to. I get why they don't, cos they want you to listen to all of it, but I just end up listening to none of it (in the case of Pod on the Tyne). I can't be bothered listening to the wackiness and, tbh, even less so any takeover chat or discussion about the current team/Steve Bruce. The more nostalgic pieces they've done, and interviews with players like Aaron Hughes, have been a really good listen. There's a Steve Howey one which I need to listen to but, like I say, I cba skipping through to find the good bits lol x

Absolutely. He's diabolical.

If the Athletic ever critically review their content then they'll know he has to go.

From the Athletic - never knew that about Remy!


https://theathletic.co.uk/1896993/2020/06/30/michael-edwards-liverpool-premier-league-jurgen-klopp-sporting-director/

Luis Suarez had been sold to Barcelona and, with a week to go before the new season, a training-ground match had made it painfully clear that Rickie Lambert was short of the level Liverpool wanted. Balotelli was available. Samuel Eto’o, too. Loic Remy had failed a medical and Rodgers cranked up the pressure internally.

They've got a half price subscription offer on at the Athletic which expires at midnight tonight. I've just signed up for £29.99 for the year.
