Wise Men Say Podcast: Episode 28 - Cups, Cups And More Cups

Tim Keeton

Roll up, roll up, it's time to download or stream the best podcast in the whole of podcast land. Once you've done that, get amongst this week's Wise Men Say and hear us discuss all things SAFC.

Big thanks to anyone who came and said hi to me and Sunny the Sun FM seagull on Wembley Way last week. That was just a part of my own cup final weekend and I'm sure you all have your own memories that will stay with you for the rest of your time. It sounds corny but I'd just say embrace it, it could be a while til it's replicated. One of this week's guests, former Wearside Roar editor Tom Lynn was telling us that a startling amount of people from the older generation have told him that last weekend was the best they have encountered following the lads. Ever.

That's quite something and it's also quite the scenario that our very next game offers the players the chance to go back and offer us a little bit more of the same. Lets' hope and pray our league position doesn't become too precarious in yet another week of absent league football. To be honest, the way we currently feel would suggest we care not about that so much.

It isn't all about romantically and blindly celebrating a narrow(ish) defeat like some division 10 side losing on penalties to Barcelona though, there's stuff to actually analyse and dissect. The system and formation became the umpteenth since Gus Poyet arrived on Wearside, and it's becoming a real delight to witness following on from two managers whose methodologies were about as fluid and adaptable as a brick.

Gary Foster from the Shields Gazette joined Tom, Gareth Barker and myself in the studio to reflect on our marvellous, erm, defeat, and talk about who should play where against Hull City this weekend. Helping us with the perspective of our hosts' perception of Sunday's FA Cup quarter final is Matt Rudd from the long serving website Amber Nectar. Do join us.
