Podcast 318: Grobbelcaast

by | Nov 25, 2021

This week’s Twohundredpercent Podcast is a right-up-to-the-minute look at a goalkeeper Liverpool signed 40 years ago, as Edward and Ian consider the career and legacy of Bruce Grobbelaar.

Your heroes childhoods were both touched by the acrobatic exploits of this outstanding player to some extent, so they try to get a handle on where he came from, who he managed to beat to the role and whether or not a chimpanzee in a green jersey could have done just as effective a job playing in goal for the brilliant Liverpool team of the 1980s.

There’s also our thoughts on some of the darker moments from the Grobbelcareer, of which there has been no shortage in the life of this remarkable man.

Fans of more recent footballing matters will be no doubt heartened that we also give some time and thought to the latest inevitable bed shitting accident at Manchester United and speculate who might be first in line to clean it all up.
