Progress With Unity Podcast #209: Liverpool, Southport & Notts County reviews

Unfortunately, Progress With Unity has returned for another season. Unfortunately, you're about to suffer another ten months of bad predictions and poorly written jokes. And unfortunately, you're stuck with the same dodgy flavour text writer. (I promise to be more relevant this year.)

This 'Lazarus' edition covers eight weeks of sporadic footballing action, managerial shuffles and people claiming they'd never heard of any of our new signings.

To those guys, I say this: you hadn't heard of Ben Watson 20 years ago. Mark my words - you'll certainly know all about 18-year old left midfielder Randman Horsenburger-Smythe III by this time next year...

Welcome to the end of the season, flavour text readers! As yet another highly eventful campaign draws to a close, one is left to reflect on the good times and ba-

(Guitars screech to a discordant halt)

Actually, I'd like to stop playing this rubbish and dedicate a song to Wigan Athletic's next manager, Phoenix from the popular mute a capella duo Phoenix and Blue.

Progress With Unity Podcast #206: Cardiff review, Reading preview

Don't believe all you read on unsanitary small time Internet weblogs - Blackburn and Bristol certainly aren't about to be deducted 10 points each for irregularities involving the illegal acquisition of mint flavour Penguin biscuits. Such stories are sent from alternate universes where Gaz Caldwell and Boycey didn't lift the FA Cup in 2013.

...Yeah, in that reality, Angelo Henriquez jumped in front to snatch it from their grasp before running 200 miles back to Old Trafford... on foot. Some say the trophy is still hidden under a Manchester bridge where Angie 'put it for safe keeping' and forgot to collect it the next morning.

But that's also a reality in which Latics are still sitting mid-table in the Premier League. So which universe is it gonna be? Choose now!
