On The Left Side: The Funny Football Show

On The Left Side is THE funny football podcast. No tactical analysis or heat maps here, just a sideways look at the very best stories from the beautiful game in a handy bite-sized form. From commentary catastrophes to managerial misdemeanours. Jim guides you through a satirical look at the last seven days of football funny.

It is a dark time for the Empire. I mean, FIFA. And while they search for a new emperor, Jose is still searching for a win, and some more words to use in his press conferences. And if you thought booing a theme tune was bad, wait till you hear how they deal with football officials who make mistakes in Turkey. Get in touch: hello@ontheleftside.co.uk

This week Jim tries to figure out who's responsible for coming up with the latest name for the Championship/Division 1/league football championship manager thing before the Premiership. Or is that Premier League? Meanwhile, managers have been failing at more than football, and are you one of the people who have to rid your internet search history of all references to Wayne Rooney?

Will Hollywood be turning Mourinho's latest Romance into a Movie? Is Louis Van Gaal a tech advisor for ITV reality TV Show? And why aren't there more children managing football clubs? At least I think that's what happens in this episode. I haven't slept all weekend. Been trying to get a new phone on Black Friday. What day is it now?

This week we snuck in to find out who was playing Santa at FIFA's Christmas Party, and ask - has Arnold Schwarzenegger's replacement been found? We also argue with our wife, cry on the phone with our mate Lee, and try and cobble together a few quid for those of us less fortunate at this time of year. And that's everyone who doesn't get free beer. Plus Tim Sherwood, Chelsea, Marley and Me, and LVG.

This week the show begins to affect our personal relationships as we ask if we would get this excited if anybody else announced they were leaving in real life. We also discuss baby names and wonder if you are crying on the inside when you laugh? And will there be any players that haven't signed for Barcelona by the close of the transfer window? #MarkLawrenson #Penis #MOTD #Lanesra #PepIsComing #Arsenal #PepGuadiola #PepPie #Bay...
