Podcast 316: FA Cup Special

by | Nov 11, 2021

On this week’s emotive FA Cup special Twohundredpercent Podcast, we join your heroes as they recount their trek up to Hertfordshire from their homes on the Sussex coast to watch St Albans City play League 2 leaders Forest Green Rovers in the First Round Proper. It was a red letter day for the Saints, too, as they emerged with a 3-2 victory to secure their first win against League opposition since the English Civil War.

Not much time to dwell on anything else, or so you’d think: in fact, the ever-prolific Ian manages to drag us deep into a wormhole of Association Football in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, before joining his colleague in a ripe assessment of many of the Premier League’s flaws and foibles.

But it is St Albans City who keep drawing us back, and this edition is dedicated to the magic of the FA Cup and City’s long-suffering supporters, particularly the ever-excitable (and forever present) Wolfman.

We explore the game, the town and the history before dealing with the most singular and poignant question of our times: Do they know it’s Christmas?
