PODCAST SPECIAL: Justin Whittle on the Great Escape, 20 seasons later

We’re thrilled to have made it as far as 200 podcasts, and more so that the genuine City icon that is Justin Whittle agreed to join us to look back on the remarkable, turbulent, frantic but ultimately satisfying 1998/99 season, when City pulled away from the horrors of the Conference trapdoor after months of being the 92nd best club in the country.

Whittle was signed by new manager Warren Joyce in November of that season, and recounts eloquently the circumstances of his move, the initial struggles, the turn in form at the start of 1999 and the ultimate success of staving off relegation into the abyss of the non-league pyramid. We chip in with memories of the games, the media coverage, the soundbites from a continuously barmy boardroom and the celebrations when safety was assured with two games to spare.

It’s here, and it’s long (90 minutes, appropriately) but it’s well worth your time.
