With no radio show or podcast this week, we thought you might be interested (it’s a big “might”, we realise) in hearing what our very own Nick Draper had to say about the 0-0 draw with Blackpool on Saturday. So please find below the audio from Nick’s chat with James Sherwood and Paul Mortimer on Love Sport’s Saturday afternoon show, The Score. Remember, the 9yrspodcast returns on Thursday 3 January 2019. Happy New Year!


We have Tuesday night football to look forward to this week! So we thought we’ve preview our trip to Oldham on Tuesday night with some chat about the recent form of ourselves and our opponents, prefaced with a look back on our excellent 3-1 win at Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

Episode 108 of the 9yrspodcast, discussing our budget, is available now on iTunes and YouTube.


With the signing of Harry Forrester on a season-long loan being announced after we had recorded this week’s podcast, we thought it would be a good idea to publish our thoughts on our new addition. What does Harry offer us; is it wise that he will be our last signing of the summer; and what does this mean for Andy Barcham and Dean Parrett?

Episode 96 of the 9yrspodcast, featuring Jon Main, will be available tomorrow on iTunes and YouTube.


In this excerpt, Ryan Sweeney discusses some of the names he worked with in his years as an Academy player at Wimbledon, his first-team debut, and his run in the first-team, including his experiences of the play-off games at Accrington and Wembley. Adedeji Oshilaja, Danny Hylton, Darius Charles, Lyle Taylor, and Adebayo Akinfenwa also get a name-check.

You can listen to the full interview with Ryan Sweeney on Episode 57 of the show, available on YouTube.
