Soldering incidents, Asian cycling competitions and incestuous caravan holidays can't hold us bac as all 3 gaffers are back together to record a landmark 100th podcast! There's the usual fantasy football chat, interspersed in equal measures with nonsense and various trips down memort lane. To mark our centenary, we also have a very special interview with rapper, actor and comedian Doc Brown who talks candidly about The Beautiful Game and his beloved Crystal Palace. Plus, it's the return of Craig's Quiz, which has huge ramifications for next week's live podcast! (Dramatic Music)
Sure, we don't mention Watford striker Isaac Success once during the episode but Craig and Ash do welcome TV's Luke Kempner into the studio in Tom's absence. The comedian chats about why Sean Dyche isn't the man for Arsenal, how he once captained Theo Walcott on a hat trick and throws in some incredible impressions, as you'd expect. With Tom taking a well earned break before we reunite for episode 100. The remaining Gaffers talk football, discussing striking options now that Morata and Aguero are on the sidelines.
Craig is still absent as we start to slightly worry about his wellbeing in Turkmenistan. But it's ok, because Tom and Ash are here to cover your fantasy football needs, plus we have Man City TV presenter Nicola McCarthy filling Craig's wicker loafers in section 2, providing some genuine professional football insight for once... I know, right?!
Craig is on international duty in Turkmenistan, so the two main lads steer you through the week's football in one of the most thorough, stat-filled episodes to date. We talk red card replacements and transferring out the week's top talent. All the usual features and nonsense are here, plus there's a voice clip from a familiar face (voice).
The dreaded international break is over and the real football returns, just as the transfer window slams shut! The Gaffers review the action from Gameweek 3 and look ahead to this weekend's fixtures. We answer your social media questions, hand out some fantasy football tips, and we tread very carefully when Craig brings back a blast from the past for this week's quiz.
All three Gaffers are present and hopefully correct as we steer you through another week of Premier League action. We discuss whether you should ditch previous fantasy football stalwarts that haven't been scoring so far this season and Ash brings out another possibly made-up sporting term. We also answer your social media questions and try to convince you that no matter how bad it is, you do not need to wildcard yet! There's the return of Craig's quiz, some ODDSbible bets and Tom gets incredibly angry about Green Street 2.
With a last minute injury changing the usual lineup, the two most charismatic and knowledgable Gaffers review the opening week's premier league fixtures. We talk which bandwagons you should let roll past you and which you should ride into the sweet sunset. We answer your social media questions and Ash sees pound signs as he goes a little bit money-crazy, like a young Scrooge McDuck. There's Gameweek 2 tips, plus exclusive odds from the OddsBible boys, all of which while we try our damnedest to pronounce footballers names correctly.
The Premier League is back and so are The Gaffers. Those thieving ninjas haven't returned Craig's laptop, so he is recording remotely from the tin bath in Saido Berahino's bungalow. We go in depth into our fantasy football picks for Gameweek 1 and we stick our necks on the line with our picks for the season. There's an extended social media segment as we answer all your burning questions, as well as a new jingle or two, a couple of choc ices and Craig's quiz comes at you with a hadouken.
In a special podcast recorded at the Double Bill Cafe in London, The Gaffers and some select members of official Gafferazzi play Togga live! Experience the excitement of the draft as everyone picks their players and attempt to teach Tom how to play. There's laughs, beers and espresso martinis aplenty, as well as an interview with a Togga expert, as the UK's biggest Fantasy Football podcast get stuck into the magic of the Togga draft for the very first time.
The game is finally back online so it's time to start picking teams and with only 3 weeks to go before kick off we get straight down to business. With Milner dropping back into defence, the 'All out attack' chip getting the chop and Everton swapping one of the Prems best strikers for one of it's ugliest there is plenty to talk about. We also make some special announcements!
