TFDP Bonus - Manchester City All-time XI
We round off TFDP Series One with a nostalgic Manchester City team picked by Caroline Clark. My mum rounds off the podcast by choosing players old and new, from the good times and the bad, but all who embodied the club in every game they played. We talk wide boy recruitment techniques, the glory days of the late 60s and booting dogs up the backside. It's a riot. Enjoy!

TFDP Episode 6 - Caroline Clark, Manchester City
If it's not one thing, it's your mother. In this case it's Caroline Clark, and she's is talking about my beloved Manchester City. Though I don't necessarily agree on several of her opinions, we get a brand new generational angle on a number of footballing issues. We get insight into hooliganism in the 1980s, City's departure from Maine Road and the financial resources in football, plus all of the peaks and troughs of being a City fan. Enjoy!

TFDP Bonus - Everton All-time XI
Dan Haygarth builds his dream Everton all-time XI from all corners of the club's history. He draws on some personal inspirations and family favourites, as well as those that have helped bring Everton success in the time that they played. Dan submitted his team in advance, so I should have been more prepared than I was, but it still makes for an interesting listen, and a nostalgia trip for any Toffees fans. Enjoy!

TFDP Episode 5 - Dan Haygarth, Everton
Mr Main Stand Musings Dan Haygarth lives and sweats Everton, so we engage in the deepest football chat of the series so far. A lifetime of football-induced character building has certainly shaped Dan's younger years, and a series of false dawns have made him sceptical about any prospect of success, but the Toffees' Ancelotti-Moshiri combination has given cause to smile again. We dig deeper into the controversial decision to leave Goodison Park, and try to really explain what the Merseyside Derby means to the City of Liverpool. Enjoy!

TFDP Bonus - Chelsea All-time XI
Another day, another twenty golden minutes with the winsome Raff Marioni. The bossman talks about his beloved Blues players, and narrows it down to eleven of the best for this week's pod. There's some obvious choices in there but some others may surprise you, or they might not. Listen in to find out. Enjoy!

TFDP Episode 4 - Raff Marioni, Chelsea
London boy Raff Marioni takes us on an extraordinary journey as he narrates an unorthodox footballing odyssey from clubless five-year-old to the Chelsea-mad man he is today. Raff doesn't hold back when he talks about his hatred for his rivals, and how money has defined Chelsea in its recent past, but it doesn't stop him divulging countless entertaining anecdotes that perfectly illustrate the day-to-day turbulence of being a Blues fan. Enjoy!

TFDP Bonus - Luton Town All-time XI
Harry Parsons lists his personal all-time XI from his beloved Luton Town. He chooses a handful of Hatters players from the club's heyday but the majority are personal and contemporary picks that mean the most to him. There aren't many recognisable names for non-Luton fans so it's a learning experience for all. Enjoy!
38 minutes | May 5, 2020
TFDP Episode 3 - Harry Parsons, Luton Town
Harry Parsons takes us deep into the football league and beyond, as he recounts all of the twists and turns of being a Luton Town fan. He's seen the Hatters sink into the National League, only to bounce back up all the way to the Championship in just five years. He also shares his thoughts on Luton’s imminent departure from Kenilworth Road, the club's association with hooliganism and how Nathan Jones broke his heart. Enjoy!

TDFP Bonus - Manchester United All-time XI
Helen Murray goes in depth on her all-time Manchester United XI, revealing her personal favourite Red Devils. Having only started following football relatively recently, there are a lot of modern picks in Helen's line-up, but their track record on the field leaves few disputable choices. Enjoy!
29 minutes | Apr 29, 2020
TFDP Episode 2 - Helen Murray, Manchester United
Our second TFDP instalment explores the journey of Manchester United fan Helen Murray. Being from Darlington, Helen's connections to United are familial, and while she'll be the first to admit that she's not the biggest football fan, we go very in depth into the post-Fergie era. We also delve into her growing interest in football, United's countless rivalries, and what the club itself personifies. Enjoy!

TFDP Bonus - Burnley All-time XI
Every weekend we'll have bonus pods with extra content from our weekly guest. In our first bonus episode, Alex Hendley reveals his all-time Burnley XI, heavily featuring members of the title-winning side in 1960, as well a few famous faces from the current era. Enjoy!
39 minutes | Apr 22, 2020
TFDP Episode 1 - Alex Hendley, Burnley
Alex Hendley is the first football fan in the hotseat on TFDP, representing Lancashire stalwarts Burnley. Alex has followed the club all the way from being well and truly in Blackburn Rovers' shadow to seeing European football at Turf Moor. Alex recounts life as the only Burnley fan in Carlisle, striking up a love for the club during their first Premier League season. If anything relegation made him more of a fan, to the point where he even has a historic part of Turf Moor at home. Listen in for nuggets on Sean Dyche, league aspirations and voyages up and down the M6. Enjoy!
