:D

Id love for the regulars of this thread to meet in a pub and discuss this podcast.

The extreme views on it are hilarious.

Ferry left school at 15, pissed his career against a wall by 26 and played for Peterhead for about a decade, yet some expect a deep dive on detail and tactics.

He is shouldered by a ned and a redundant taxi driver. He’s not got Guillem Balague and Gary Neville with him. :D

Listening to the end of Under the Cosh - no chance he’s getting rid of Slaney. He raves about him.

For those worried about him being a Tarrier; his favourite ever guest was McCoist...

I dont care if he was on loan at Blackpool - he was a professional player at the time and for me, pros should be looking to better themselves instead of taking the first opportunity to get fucking honking, and is indicative of why some players, particularly those who seem to appear on open goal, never reach their full potential. I appreciate that Halliday is now exempt from criticism though, given that he has left - perhaps this comment would have been better received after he appeared in our starting XI following a bad result. hey ho.

My point was a reference to the difference in mentality and perhaps there is a reason why some players dont hit a decent level consistently and take themselves to a level that they are capable of operating at. Im thinking in particular of the likes of Templeton whose appearance on open goal was littered with stories about getting minging, and the list is endless in that regard. Some car crash stuff on that show from players who didnt ever get to where they should have been - and with that in mind i can't help but question whether some of these players could have made more of their careers if they were more focused instead of defaulting to the scottish football stereotype of getting burst. This isnt solely directed at Halliday - it was an example of an anecdote which he used which seems to share similar traits to others who appear on the show.

the general mentality of scottish players is flawed and there is a reason why so few excel elsewhere when compared to other nations where the lifestyle is secondary to success. I take one look at our squad and the fact there are such limited options in terms of Scottish players as an indicator of where the general game is at up there.

no sure you would be the first on the invite list for a Hoose party when covid is gone

I know there are various views from Ferry being insufferable, to lining the pockets of Peter, but that aside, there are some fans of it on here.

I enjoyed Fod last week - thought he was very honest.

Up this week, Lambert.

Did I hear he was a Rangers fan as a kid?

First time I’ve listened at length to him. Surprised just how arrogant he is. (He’s won the Champions League, but felt like he now views himself as a great).

Interesting interview. Scottish guy abroad stuff was a decent listen.

He doesn’t think Rangers are mentally tough enough to win the league in the coming season.

Guess many of us harbour the same concerns. Hearing it from tarriers makes the desire even greater though.

Does he say why he doesn’t think we are mentally tough enough?

This seems to be what these bastards all seem to be clinging on to

Exactly, the rage some get about it is hilarious.

It's not as if it's even on TV, you have to actively look for it on YouTube!

The bold Del went round the roundabout the wrong way and totalled the motor him and another player(s) were in. IIRC there were injuries and may have been a broken leg amongst them. Happy to be corrected by anyone whose memory is less shot than mine.
Remember it well, a while after Derek Ferguson was walking by the stairs at the back of the Copland , in the days it was an open air boozer , and some wag shouted " alright Derek" ....to which Fergie greeted him with a smile , to be met with " did you drive up "

They can only go on past experience.

We have shat the bed, numerous times.

I actually don’t think it’s an unfair comment to make. It is up to us to prove we have the mentality to see it out.

But, when push comes to shove, domestically, we have buckled.

This feels a littler different, so far, but, I understand people asking the question.

Agree with this, we only prove we are mentally tough once we actually win the league.

Si Ferry is on the Under the Cosh podcast this week talking about his career.

2 parts, and really good listening

Part 1


Part 2


Apologies about the Celtic tops in the images, but the stuff on Di Canio at Swindon in part 1 is hilarious

Another vote for watching this, his stories were funny as. The 3 other guys barely spoke for 2 hours.

Shows that Ferry is very good at what he does as a podcast host, because he clearly has a lot to say and enjoys telling a story, given how Under The Cosh went.

But as a host of Open Goal he doesn’t overly dominate the chat and does well to guide things and keep it moving.

Quite telling that he’s big enough to admit that he wasted his career, and was and does sound like he’s more interested in booze and having a good time, than football.

One thing he does well is he knows the time to give it knowing it can't go silent for too long. Those other 3 guys didn't have much 'banter' going at all so once Ferry said something there was a slight silence and he obviously expected them to come in and ask something but none of them did so he just moved to the next story to prevent the podcast becoming stale and awkward.

Yip; everyone on here were asking questions after the Hibs game.
Under the cosh is a good listen

I hadn't heard of them till last week but caught one or two of their Podcasts. Enjoyed the Dean Windass one.

The Kevin Campbell episode is excellent.. he ended up doing 2.

I'd recommend the one about his time in Turkey. He tells a story about being on the team bus on the way home after a good win and a car pulls up alongside with the passenger holding a gun.. I won't ruin the story but i was fu.cking buckled watching it.

Kevin Campbell, Alan Rogers & Andy Johnston are well worth a watch.. all 3 are funny with loads of cracking stories.

Clarke Carlisle is also good but its heavy on his addictions/depression etc.. it's mental how he managed to play at the level he did given how much he abused his body with alcohol.

I only heard about them last week when Ferry had them on.

Listened to his which was good.

Also listened to Dean Windass, Anthony Gerrard, Jon Otsembor, Chris Kirkland, Tony Warner, Gavin Rae, Luke Chadwick Leon knight (wannabe gangster comes across as a knob.)

Mark Crossley with his Clough stories and impersonations is very good.I

Under the Cosh with Si Ferry is a great listen - de Canio and Gravesen stories are brilliant.

Beresford's was decent and Paddy Kenny's was good too. How was Anthony Gerrard's? Switched it off 10 mins in. Just started watching Glen Little's. So far so good.

Never meant to tag SouthLDNBear.

Neon Light. I listened to both of his and thought quite a few of his stories were funny, if you can get past how much of a helmet he is.

Ferry is good, Slaney isn’t the full shilling and Kyle is stupid. It’s good when Halliday is on. Ferry on under the cosh was a good listen.

Listened to Ben thornley too. Enjoyed that

One i had passed on too as i didnt fancy it, seen most of the rest of them. Will give it a watch.

It's funny when you get the same managers coming up and getting slated. Blackwell seems like he is a complete and utter c*nt.
