It’s been a while, but Nick and Stu have returned for the first time in two months with a regularly(ish) scheduled podcast~! Yes, it’s time for the annual SEASON REVIEW SHOW, and there is a lot to talk about, so please forgive us for going long. But we haven’t been around in the old school form for quite some time, so we’ve indulged ourselves. We also don’t know when to shut up. So, get comfy, where should we begin?

So, how did we manage that escape? Here’s the analysis of where we bucked historical trends to secure our first division future (above the scum).

So, in our last six games, our results were expected to be:

  • Charlton: draw 1-1;
  • Walsall: most likely lose 3-1;
  • Oldham: also draw (0-0);
  • Wigan: lose 1-0 – the standard home win given as we have not played there before;
  • Doncaster: lose 1-0 (see above!);
  • Bury: win 2-1.

The Charlton game turned into a win: a great start boosting us two points up.

Then, the key game that I think turned our potential into actual survival, the dramatic win at Walsall – 3-2 in stoppage time, in front of all those volunteers on their day out. Pure bliss (Alexa? – Ed).

Yes, we realise it’s all gone a bit – shall we say – lethargic (?!) of late, and we apologise. It’s simply a time issue. Various combinations of Nick, Stu, Chris, and Kevin have still been appearing alongside Aaron Paul every Sunday on Love Sport Radio, but the podcast incarnation has had to be put on hold due to time constraints for your esteemed editor. Don’t blame me: the WWE Network put an Alexa Bliss collection up and that will always take priority.

However, we are getting our act together now (of course, the season has finished, but better late than never), and here is, less than 24 hours after first broadcast (WIN!) this week’s radio show, on which Nick and Kevin were selected to appear. It’s kinda like that old cartoon MASK, where different people were chosen by some super computer. Great show. Anyway, we spoke about football and stuff. Enjoy~!
