Episode 149 - Live from London Road

... and it's LIVE! The boys are back with a bumper live podcast, recorded this weekend down at the ABAX Stadium, aka London Road, home of Peterborough United.


 


The Posh have been in the headlines following the sacking of their manager Darren Ferguson last Saturday. In two spells in charge, Ferguson won three promotions for Peterborough, plus the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at Wembley last season. However, with the club sitting in a miserable fifteenth place in League One after a 3-0 loss at MK Dons, enough was finally enough for their chairman Darragh MacAnthony.


 


We talk to a range of guests to discuss the decision and where the club should turn next. They include Adi Mowles, chairman of PISA 2000 (Peterborough United Independent Supporters Association), Jamie Jones, host of the Standing On The Glebe Podcast, John Verrall, who's previously written for The Guardian, Shoot and World Soccer, plus Paul Myland and other Posh fans outside the ground.


 


As for Bradford City, well... where to start? The Bantams are on the brink of an incredible third Wembley appearance in three years, as they prepare to face Reading in an FA Cup quarter final at Valley Parade on Saturday. They have already knocked out Chelsea, Sunderland and Millwall from the competition this season, plus are in with a chance of promotion to the Championship via the League One play-offs.


 


We speak to the travelling Bradford fans about another magnificent season, plus catch up for more with Simon Parker, Bradford City reporter for the Telegraph & Argus.


 


In addition, you can hear from both managers after the game, as Mark interviews Peterborough's caretaker boss Dave Robertson, plus the all-conquering Phil Parkinson.


 


Plus, we round up all the latest Football League action and give you our unique commentary on all the action at London Road. Expect talk of giant rabbits, cheerleaders, Spandau Ballet and Gustav Holst...
