I love the podcast it's always entertaining and a good laugh but I agree with some of the comments on here. Sometimes there is a bit too much swearing, but it doesn't really bother me as it's aimed at adults but it does mean that I can't listen to it when my kids around. I'd love it if the episodes came out a bit earlier but I understand that it's probably not practical for all involved to do that.

And just to add that the episode with mickey hazard was absolutely brilliant. If you want to give the show a chance make sure you listen to that one.

We have a few beers, mostly with mates, we don't really think about it too much. We never have. We'd probably still meet up and do it if no one listened. We could do it shorter, but we don't really want to.
How many listeners do you have now?

I like the Fighting Cock podcast.

I liked it a bit more before they started getting guests on the show. Flav and the boys start to tone it down when there's someone on, as is understandable, but it can make the whole thing lose its sense of individuality. It's still good fun though, although I miss Chicago Dan :(

My favourite is the Hotspurs podcast though and I love what they have been doing recently, getting fans to call in and get involved in the show.

I have hosted and recorded podcasts before and what I will say is that I have massive respect for all of the amateur ones. To put the time and effort (and I know how much effort it can be!) into putting together a show, on a weekly basis, when you have a full time job deserves great respect.

Boring train journeys, sessions in the gym etc are infinitely more bearable due to all the Spurs podcasts, and I really look forward to all of them - keep up the good work!

OK, I've listened to half of the second one, and I expect you're all 'top top' chaps but any Spurs fan that truly thinks:

"I don't want to sign players like Gallas and Adebayor because they're taking away from the reasons I support Spurs / I don't want to sacrifice that for a few extra points a season" (or words to that effect)

... sorry, that's tosh.

That said - and I know that's just my opinion - I appreciate the amount of effort you guys have to go to record it and all meet in one place etc. - we thought about doing one on here but just could never see a point where a good number of us could meet up regularly and get it done. So massive plaudits for that - I expect content will get better, and it's good that you have varying viewpoints. They just all seem a bit anti-establishment for me, and that's why I'll stick to Scott and Dave of Cock On Ball fame. :up:
Ha! Who'd have thought that I now listen to this every week - really like it.

Haha, Stoof for the win!

It was the begging of a journey Stoof, and funnily enough Engineer Al's EP is called The journey begins and is available.......

Love this pod, just wish it was on earlier in the week.
Keep it up Flav
Thank you mate.

Yeah, we can't really get it out any sooner. We're only ever free on a Wednesday night... potentially, and occasionally, we do release it on a Thursday.

Been listening for about a year now, and this is currently my favourite Spurs podcast.

Honourable mention also, to Rule the Roost, and Wheeler Dealer Radio. The latter is particularly interesting as it comes from a US perspective.

Really improved, one of the first on the download list. Please change the windy music though.

I agree @jimtheyid - it's been really very good.

I wish SC had done something like this, all those years ago when @rez9000 suggested it. We could have been market leaders.

It's all good though, and the Fighting Cock is by far the best one out there.

Does whatshisname Cornwall still do his? That was shite.

Yeah he does, I quite like it personally because it gets some interesting guests.

Love the podcast, makes dropping points easier to bare and wins more enjoyable. Not much more one could ask for when riding the roller coaster that is Spurs. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. COYS
