The podcast has some decent guests with some good stories but Parkin is a dreadful host as is the so called comedian. The ex footballer Chris Brown is alright.

 

Gets tedious after you've listened to a few as Parkin just wants to talk about them going out getting pissed which ain't all that interesting to listen to. 

 

Yeah, agree with all of this. Very hit and miss. I really enjoyed the Matt Piper one and the Iain Hume one, the Clarke Carlisle one was brilliant too but too many of their podcasts just descend into players boasting about the stupid things they got up to while pissed - gets very repetitive. The Ben Marshall episode being a prime example. Thought he came across as a total dick who squandered his talent- he seemed weirdly proud of the fact that he'd wasted his career being a 'lad'. 

 

There are some brilliant one's though, the Baz Rathbone one is fascinating.

Martin Allen on this time here.

 

 

What an incredibly tough person to listen to. Imagine having to put up with that as a player. He goes through about 5 different personalities in as many minutes.

The sacking story is brutal.

I don’t even know if he realises but he was deposed because a group of senior players wanted rid and went to Milan about it. He’ll realise if he is an avid user of FT and reads this comment lol

...the story he recanted regarding Clarke's medical emergency was not how I remember it!!!

Who was it that was in charge at the time, when we gave Forest the "walk in" goal, them having being 1 - 0 ahead at half time and the game was abandoned. I thought he was in charge at the time of the replay, but I must be mistaken as he was there and claims he was sacked the next day after Clarke's emergency.

  I just do not quite believe him, just get a feeling there is a showman infront of you.

It was Megson in charge for the replayed game.  He walked out about 5 mins after the game had started so he did not bring the attention on him or something and we gave them a goal start.

The abandoned Forest vs Leicester was 28th August 2007.

 

Allen was sacked on the 29th so his timeline is correct.

I am genuinely curious how we would have got on with him in charge if he had been allowed full control. We massively needed a rebuild and Milan’s meddling was a constant problem for us. 
 

It was a massive step up for him but for me he was a good appointment at the time.
 

Hearing about how bad our club was run is infuriating, such a low point for us. But I remember at the time being desperate for us to sign JFH
