Podcast 313: Against Modern Everything
This week’s Twohundredpercent Podcast walks the fine line between moral outrage and slapstick comedy like never before. However, for once it is neither Ian nor Edward’s fault, they are merely playing with the hands that footballing fate has dealt them.
There are some serious ponderings on Newcastle United’s new Faustian takeover agreement, as well as Manchester United’s wanton disregard for both their sporting legacy and their carbon footprint.
Your heroes also delve into Paul Merson’s affecting BBC documentary about the secret shame of football’s gambling problem, complete with some valuable personal insight from Ian, formerly the manager of a bookmaker’s shop in London Colney.
Luckily, there is some light relief from all of this furrowing of the brow, thanks to legendary Northern Irish team Glentoran’s goalkeeper punching his own centre half. Ah football. We knew there was a reason we keep coming back.
