Progress With Unity Podcast #149: Jonathan Jackson Q&A Special

The PWU Xmas bash in full swing!

Sick of Dear Old Madge's boring Christmas Day speeches year after year? Can't relate to the pop culture icons delivering Channel 4's alternative Christmas message? Then PWU might just have the thing for you in this most festive of seasons.

No, I'm not talking about this Q&A Special with Jonathan Jackson and whichever PWU panellists just happened to show up. I'm talking about this festive ditty, to be repeated many times on the terraces this Boxing Day:

On the 12th day of Christmas Donald Love sent to me...
David Sharpe said we’ll smash it 

Gary Caldwell is Superman 
Max Power’s a-leaping 
Yanic’s on the run 
Captain Morgan likes spiced rum 
Seven days for Craig Davies 
Six Jussis Jiving 
Five Jacobs' Crackers 
Four nil at Bury 
Three points at Barnsley 
Graham Barrow with a marrow 
And Joe Parkinson in The Pear Tree

Merry Christmas, PWUers! Keep an eye out for the video version of this edition, coming soon to an internet near you.

Progress With Unity Podcast #148: Blackpool review, Barnsley preview

Oh, my... I have to warn you that this week's From The Terrace report is potentially quite controversial. Not because of its content, but the fact it was recorded during the Blackpool game at the DW Stadium illegally!

If you never hear from us again, presume we've been hunted down by Sky Sports for recording (pretty rubbish) 'live' updates from the stands as the game was happening. And no, you can't have my matchday Thermos after I'm 'gone' - I've already pledged it to the dog in my last will and testament.

Also listen out for a brief chat with Will Grigg about goalscoring, international glory and... Star Wars, perhaps. Well, probably not - I just wanted to appear topical for once.

Progress With Unity Podcast #147: Barnsley review, Blackpool preview

I *could* write some silly flavour text here, but then again you *could* be listening to PWU's exclusive interview with Tangerines defender and 'friend of the show' Emmerson Boyce. Now doesn't that sound much more appealing than a cabaret joke that only inebriated fools would find the slightest bit humorous?

By the way, don't forget to register your interest for the PWU Xmas special to be recorded on the 23rd December. We want you lot to toddle along and fire questions at our esteemed guests... which may well be confirmed in this edition of PWU, so get listenin'!

Progress With Unity Podcast #146: Southend review, Barnsley preview

No mistake, John Stones' Paint Trophy is pretty important. When you switch a game from Tuesday night to Saturday afternoon, you know it isn't just a leisurely midweek knockabout any more. You're too far invested, and nothing but ultimate victory shall suffice.

...Either that or a tub of terracotta to paint the bathroom ceiling, whichever's on offer. Wonder if they'll do buy one get one free on David Dickinson orange?
