A technical issue means there’ll be no audio download of the last Amber Nectar podcast of 2016/17, leaving just our YouTube video of the Periscope broadcast. Phil Buckingham of the Hull Daily Mail joins us as we pick at the carcass of a season resulting in relegation.
Three blokes with hangdog expressions try to make sense of City’s relegation. Up to you to decide whether we manage it or not, but we had a go. Discussions included Sunday’s horror show, Marco Silva’s future, the players likely to depart, the statement from Ehab Allam and a quick look ahead to the finale against Spurs this weekend.
Last one of the season next week, when Phil Buckingham of the Hull Daily Mail will be our guest.
It’s not easy trying to dissect such a gut-wrenching, season-defining defeat with articulacy and thoughtfulness, as we probably prove here…
A bumper hour-long Bank Holiday ‘special’, giving us extra time to wax lyrical about Eldin Jakupović. We also look ahead (and back) to Sunderland at home, consider the Premier League’s decision to investigate City over pricing issues, and think back to a special promotion 13 years ago to the day.
Good heavens, an entire podcast about winning a game! But it was stylish, eventful, pivotal, wonderful… anyway, before we sound too much more like Supertramp, click on the link above and enjoy it as we did.
May also include a healthy mention of Kevin Ellison.
So we chat about the missed opportunity at Stoke, look ahead to Watford (mainly by looking back at Watford) and briefly talk about Ehab’s latest round of fan-blaming in the press. All good clean fun, as ever…
We glossed over the Man City defeat and talked glowingly and lengthily about the win over Middlesbrough, because we wanted to. And why not? Plus we talk about the run-in and Marco Silva’s contract situation, and reminisce on previous visits to Stoke, which involve penalties, Cruyff turns, flying mud and wiping bottoms with towels.
Looking back at West Ham, looking ahead to Middlesbrough and Manchester City, and snorting with derision at the latest effort by the Allams to justify/prolong the membership scheme. All this rolled into a snug, fun-filled, action-packed, value-for-money 45 minutes. We spoil you.
A long old inquest into what happened at Everton, along with an erudite discussion (no, really) on the merits of Jake Livermore’s England recall, so soon after leaving City. We also look ahead to our next game against West Ham by, er, looking back at previous games against West Ham.
No podcast next week due to the international break, see you in a fortnight.
All about Swansea, and strikers, and pitches, and, er, fadges…
