Friday Night Lights: Only Fools and Horsfall

Play it nice and cool son...Friday Night Light is back with a heavy Only Fools and Horses vibe as talk about the classic sitcom's locations in Bristol.Elsewhere there's a preview of the upcoming Shrewsbury Town match with Shrews podcast Salopcast and we chew the fat over who is likely to come out on top.Jake regales us with his expert knowledge of the Cobblers circa 2000 including Richard Dryden and a player shot in the face with an airgun for our Supersub feature.Lastly we start the Cobblers A-Z, starting with Ansell's burgers and Andy revels in the smell of fried onions.Quite possibly the best podcast to feature the other Peter Clark.

Friday Night Lights: Only Fools and Horsfall

Friday Night Lights: Berry Terry Cherry

We're all about the rhyming triumvirate this week as Martin regales us with a tale of a meeting between Berry, Terry and Cherry.We preview Saturday's tie V Wimbledon with Dons' programme editor Ray Armfield, going through their new signings and hearing about the new stadium which isn't far off completion.There's a debut for the word game about to sweep the nation EFON ELAD, that leaves os pondering whether New Caledonia is a province or a country.Then in the Super Sub feature we swap in some players from the Cobblers team in 1990 into Keith Curle's current crop including the likes of Bobby Barnes and Stuart Beavon.Lastly the WALOC crew go over their favourite matches v Wimbledon over the years and there's a return for Boothroyd's airplane in the sky.About as comprehensively inane build up to the weekend's action as you're going to find.
