The Premier League is officially back and The Gaffers return for their 5th Season. As well as an XXL mini-league this season, we have a Gameweek 2 podcast full to the brim with genuine Fantasy Football talk and tips, as well as some social media questions from all over the globe. We discuss who you should have picked, who you shouldn’t, and - more importantly - how you should pronounce those players names correctly.
The new Premier League season is upon us which means The Gaffers are back for another year of fantasy football podcasting. Tom, Ash & Craig return from World Cup duty with another episode of FPL advice, football debate and even briefly wade in on the pros and cons of South Korean military service. Some much loved features are back as well as a host of new items including a potentially reputation ending debate piece and some beautiful heartfelt literature from Tom. And there's a quiz. Obviously.
The second part of our World Cup Special is here - brought to you by Draft Kings. Craig is otherwise engaged, throwing cheese-toasties at TV runners, so Tom and Ash are steering the comedy football ship into the Semi-Finals! We talk about the four remaining teams in the World Cup, with maybe just a little extra focus on the mighty England. There’s the usual social media questions, Tom pleads for a drinking buddy, there’s news on Fantasy Premier League prices and the Gaffer Mini-League Pin for 2018/19... oh, and a lot of sweating.
The Gaffers return to their roots and bring you a World Cup Special, in association with Draft Kings. Tom, Ash and Craig discuss the tournament so far, the highs-and-lows, The surprisement, and of course the VAR. There’s an in-depth look at England’s campaign so far and not just so we can plug our World Cup Song. We read some of your social media questions, come up with some new TV show pilots and there is the return of THE most notorious quiz in Gaffer Tapes history... oh yes.
The 2017/18 Season is over. The final league positions are revealed.
The quiz is tied: there must be a winner. Ooooh it’s exciting, isn’t it?!
Tom, Ash and Craig are back for the final pod of the season to review a great 38 gameweeks of Premier League action, look at the highs-and-lows in fantasy football and answer your social media questions.
There’s also a supermarket class-war argument, Ash makes a sex robot using a toaster and we finish, as we always do, on Tom’s traditional Lee Sharpe Anecdote. You lucky sausages.
The stress of doing a couple of months of consecutive podcasting has proven too much for Craig and he’s limped off with a sore sausage. Fear not, as Tom and Ash are here for all your fantasy football needs.
In Part Two we welcome our buddy Dominic Monaghan back to the podcast for his hat-trick appearance. We had several hundred questions for him from our loyal listeners, which is why we spent the majority of the time talking about Dom’s love for Manchester United and how attractive he thinks Jamie Redknapp and Frank Lampard are. Plus, there’s an ill-timed Gaffer Holiday next week, so we provide a bumper preview of the upcoming Double-Gameweek and the final week’s fixtures.
The final Blank-Gameweek of the season is in the bag as we approach the homestretch of 2017/18. We brag about some ridiculous tips that came in and get so nostalgic about a certain Frenchman that it prompts several heartfelt singalongs. There’s a bumper Any Other Business, a new jingle all the way from Canada, an announcement about a very special guest on next week’s show, and Craig resurrects a classic Tom Holmes quiz that has suddenly become relevant.
The Gaffers come to you midway through the big Double Gameweek. What we lack in knowledge about final scores, final points and final decisions on retrospective bans, we more than make up for in raising awareness on behalf of the Dildo Community and talking heatedly about personalised mugs. We do, however, prove our worth with some insight into potential Championship players to look out for next season, Ash answers some tricky Blank Gameweek Questions and we round the festivities off with a bonafide G.O.A.T quiz.
The Moon Landing, The Assassination of JFK, Double Gameweek 34. One of the biggest events in the history of big events is finally here... being all big and eventy, and that. It makes-and-breaks seasons and separates the amateurs from the ones who claim they aren’t amateurs in their social media bios. Luckily The Gaffers are here to guarantee you success in the big Double Gameweek of the 2017/18 Season. We discuss what chips you should be using, who you should be picking and where to stick your Triple Captain. There’s also your Social Media questions, a (kind of) on-topic quiz and news of a Big Gaffer Giveaway!
Gameweek 32 has come to an end and so has Alan Pardew’s lengthy, decorated reign at West Brom. The Gaffers discuss the usual movers-and-shakers in last week’s fantasy football and look forward to the upcoming week’s fixtures. There’s a brand new jingle, a very heated debate about diving, an Avocado related conspiracy theory and the return of the notorious quiz ‘Boring Pundit... more like YouTube Fun-Shit’.
