2000s Cult Heroes: Bullard, Toure, Barthez, Benjani, Tofting...

Season 3, Episode 3,   Dec 01, 2020, 05:00 AM

After two fantastic interview episodes, this week we got the gang together to discuss our (and your) favourite cult players of the 2000s...

Mark, Rob and returning guest Danny McLoughlin each give two of their choices before Rich tests the lads' cult hero knowledge with a game of 'Who Am I?'

We then run through some of the listeners' choices before the triumphant return of Fact or Fiction, featuring a Gary Doherty grime tune, Danny Mills' fridge and a miniature Range Rover for Harry Redknapp.
