quite like it - often watch it for Slaneys man on the verge performances, genuinely fear for that young mans mental health

Have you actually watched any of the shows being talked about in this thread by any chance?
I’ve seen some of the early content yes. It was no different to the other stuff that’s out there interviewing ex pros.

I’ve decided not to watch it as I’d rather not help line the pockets of the fat japs son but anyone else is free to spend their time how they choose.

I will never understand why any Rangers fan would want to sit and watch an interview with Martin Compston though.

Each to their own, I really only watch when they have ex-Gers or other big named players on.

Despite some horrific tactical insight, the show and agenda is fairly well balanced in my view.

It's a decent listen mostly. Got 15 minutes through the David Turnbull one this morning on my walk and had to turn it off. Not the sharpest and gave nothing. Clint Hill was good aa was the Billy Brown one.
Apart from the Rangers related ones, I liked the Gary Holt one

I have watched all the Rangers guys , most of the septic ones , most of the others , I’m getting more selective about the septic ones now , for example I just deleted peter grant , John Higgins , Arden mcgeady , gritthiths & a few others , no interest in what they’re saying .

The folk saying Russell Anderson was the worst are bang on the money , if you’re having problems getting to sleep , stick that episode on .

I enjoyed the Dick Campbell interview. A refreshing and raw insight into lower league football. Once he'd settled in to the interview and relaxed, the swearing was on another level!

Fortunate enough in a previous role to meet Dick when he popped into the managers office for a post-match drink.

Had never heard the C bomb dropped so many times in the half an hour or so :D

Don't watch any of the shows with Slaney. He's about as funny as boot in the balls.

The Clint Hill interview recently was top notch. Of all the Tims that have been on there was a few surprises, thought Pat McCourt came across pretty well. Not of the rabid variety.

I think Lawwells son owns the company that does it, no idea about payment but when Ferry was talking about paycuts at Peterhead he said he’d be fine but other lads wouldn’t. I took that as open goal being a second wage
I think it was tam Cowan who said he did the podcast for 2k he would have done it for less if they had heard of so Ferry

McGeady actually comes across as a decent guy and tells some good stories. But the staunch have gotta be staunch I suppose.

not watched too many. they are good. i suppose posters who point out the Lawwell connection are correct - if he is involved then every view of their channel = £££ in his pocket, no matter which way you look at it or enjoy their content that should be off putting

Cheers mate , I’d say I was borderline handwringer on here , whatever that is .
I generally listen to everything that rolls out , if I can’t stomach a person , I give it a miss . Surprised mcgeady came across well , just shows you .

The other two play to the weakest link of the audience, Ferry is good to listen to and if he wants to go further he needs to bin dumb and dumber
 
Perhaps, perhaps not.

All I know is there is enough content out there made by our own. I would rather not spend any time giving traction to Lawwells sons outlet. Not a day goes by when many on here complain that Celtic control the media yet don’t see a problem with stuff like this as it’s all a good laugh eh. Free country and people can do what they like it’s just an opinion as worthless as anything else you’ll read on the internet.
agreed, this thread has me questioning if this is a Rangers forum

Not rabid? The mink runs a IRA slophouse in Belfast.

I find them generally a decent watch. At the start I was watching every week regardless of who it was but finding myself more and more skipping the Rabid ones. Foderingham one should hopefully be a decent watch.

Tam Cowan has si ferry on 'off the ball' pretty frequently so think he knows he is tbh.
I think most of the shows are good, obviously Rangers related are best, but o'connor's was brilliant as was dick Campbell. Think they open up to si ferry more than they do normal interviews.

Do the guests get paid for shows like this and how does it work with Si Ferry etc are they all getting a decent wage and if so, who pays?
His early guests were ex Celtic teammates and that’s been the same more recently (Matt Ritchie and Wes Foseringham were at Swindon with him).

I don't find Si Ferry that objectionable. His interview style is repetitive though. I only listen in, if it's someone interesting he has on. A lot of it seems to revolve around patter and having a carry on with folk. A bit of levity. The show lives and dies on the quality of the guests at times though. Some footballers just aren't that interesting or talkative. Don't religiously listen to it but will fire an episode on if I'm at a loose end and I'm well caught up with other stuff.

I think the thing that makes it so likeable is how genuine it seems to be and more like a conversation than an interview. Players seem more relaxed and open up to good stories.
