There will be a report on (what I saw of) Saturday’s match between AFC Wimbledon and FC United of Manchester up on here by tomorrow, but I need to take a couple of days out to recover from it all. In the mean time, here’s the next instalment of the Baker & Kelly radio shows from Talk Sport in 1998.

He has also written for, amongst others, Pitch Invasion, FC Business Magazine, The Score, When Saturday Comes, Stand Against Modern Football and The Football Supporter. Ian was the first winner of the Socrates Award For Not Being Dead Yet at the 2010 NOPA awards for football bloggers.
I looked up something from the 4th April 11:30 show – http://200percent.blogspot.com/2007/07/baker-kelly-4th-april-2007.html
At 24 mins in we hear a guy from N. Ireland who had put £1000 on Torquay being promoted at 100-1. So £100,000 awaited him at the end of the season. As of 4th April they were 2nd with a game in hand.
Had the team won a point in their final game of the season at Leyton Orient, they would have gone up automatically, but they lost the game 2-1. An emphatic 7-2 (on aggregate) victory over Scarborough in the semi-final, including 4 goals from star striker Rodney Jack, resulted in Torquay United’s third appearance at Wembley. However, United lost 1-0 to Colchester United in the Wembley final.
The poor guy must rue the day he told someone else about the bet before it was certain.
