Joleon Lescott: Kompany, Aguero & The Day City Won The League

Hola Big Interview listeners!

Last week I spent an hour in the company of former Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott.

So what did we talk about? Well, you will hear Joleon describe the historic moment when City won the league title in 2012, as well as key players like Sergio Aguero and Vincent Kompany.

And, thanks to our sponsors Bet365, you will also learn why Louis Saha was the toughest striker he ever faced.

This was a fascinating chat and I guarantee that you will love it, whether you are a City fan or not.

Alan Smith: Wright, Wrongs & a European Cup

Hola Big Interview listeners!

In part two of my chat with Alan Smith, the Arsenal legend takes us to Copenhagen and Arsenal’s famous victory over Parma in the final of the 1994 European Cup Winners’ Cup. Alan will recall the famous names among that glittering Italian side – Zola, Asprilla and Brolin to name three – and, of course, his own wonderful, decisive goal.

That should have been the crowning moment of his career. But, as Alan will explain, he had by then lost his confidence and was no longer enjoying his football. We talk about why that was. It’s an important message.

And we also discuss the arrival at Highbury of Ian Wright and why Alan was unable to click with his new team-mate on the pitch, as well as Alan’s prominent role in the FIFA computer games.

Our Socios get to listen to this episode ad-free (there are over 700 of them now, and you can join the party by clicking here) and this is just one of the podcasts we have been producing for them. This month they get to listen to former United striker Brian McClair!

Alan Smith: Arsenal, Anfield & The Boys of ’89

Hola Big Interview listeners!

When I sat down to chat with Alan Smith during the launch of his autobiography Heads Up we talked Arsenal icons, a title win and triumph in a European Cup final. It was so good that I have split the whole interview into two parts.

So, in Part One, you will learn about George Graham, a title-winning coach at Arsenal and a man feared by many of his players. You’ll hear about his laborious training methods and hair-raising team talks.

And Alan also relives his goal at Anfield which helped steal the league title away from a formidable Liverpool side in 1989. It is a game which he describes as the most iconic in English football history.

Our Socios get to listen to this episode ad-free (there are over 700 of them now, and you can join the party by clicking here) and this is just one of the podcasts we have been producing for them. This month they get to listen to former United striker Brian McClair!

Ledley King: Davids, Defoe & Derbies at The Lane

Hola Big Interview listeners!

Welcome back for part two of my chat with Spurs legend Ledley King. You are about to hear all about his time at White Hart Lane – his team-mates, managers and, of course, those captivating London derbies under the lights.

We begin by being introduced to Edgar Davids, who proved to Ledley that he was a born winner. And Ledley also describes how Juande Ramos ordered his Spurs players to lose weight … well, almost all of them.

You will also hear about matches against Chelsea and Arsenal. Facing Spurs’ biggest rivals were huge moments in Ledley’s career and he describes those pulsating games brilliantly.

This is a truly fascinating, enjoyable interview. Our Socios got to listen to it first in full and ad-free (there are over 700 of them now, and you can join the party by clicking here) and is just one of the podcasts we have been producing for them.
