The Cult of Neil Warnock and The Battle of Bramall Lane

Mar 05, 05:30 AM
Rich Williams, Mark Holmes and Rob Conlon are joined by returning comedian Micky P Kerr to celebrate one of football's funniest characters, Neil Warnock, and remember one of the most controversial games of the 2000s.

The man who officiated The Battle of Bramall Lane, Eddie Wolstenholme, joins the boys on the phone to talk us through the crazy events of that day, featuring three red cards and leading to the game eventually being abandoned.

As always, we finish with another edition of Football Fact or Fiction in which Rich 
tries to guess which of the many glorious stories about Neil Warnock are true.

Make sure you head to for more 2000s nostalgia, 
including expanded interviews with many of the show's guests.
