Pubcast #91: Lend us a Tenor?

Aug 09, 2012, 08:19 AM, Poplar, London, United Kingdom

With the close season starting to wear a bit thin, and just Olympic Football, pre-season friendlies and transfer rumours to keep us going, the Pubcast team were understandably distracted this week – not least by Dan’s striking likeness to a certain deceased Italian opera star! Nevertheless, the boys still managed to find plenty of talking points, including a dubiously named new rising star section (more of which in coming weeks), and Dan’s very own “aria” of expertise – dodgy beards! Also in this week’s show:

• The various incarnations of the “new Maradona” • Mexican wrestling • Olympic reaction • Usain Bolt’s Theatre of Dreams • Good news from Stiliyan Petrov • England’s highest ever ranking • Kendall Town’s new sponsor • Danny Wellbeck’s heroic father • Yeovil Town & Playford FC’s naked ambition • Violent family days • Foul Hajduk Split fan comes clean • Senegalese Olympic footballer goes AWOL • Dukes of Hazard • Ashley Cole winds up Arsenal fans on Twitter • Sami Khedira faces the goal • AFC back to Wimbledon? • Plus plenty more from the boys in the Wharf
