With AN retiring after 21 years, we've done one last podcast to look back at the highlights and (a fair measure of) lowlights during our lifetime. And naturally, we've taken the opportunity to talk about how ace we are.
We'd like to say a big thanks to all of our podcast guests down the years and to all of listeners and viewers via this page, YouTube and Periscope. We're very touched by all the complimentary messages we've received since announcing AN's closure.
We do discuss current City issues, but the first chunk of our podcast allows us to reflect on the life and career of former City defender and captain Peter Skipper, who died suddenly over the weekend.
The podcast is a bit swearier than usual in places once we get on to the malaise that is modern day City.
Sound quality is iffy as it's come from our Youtube page after we had laptop issues that stopped us from recording into our usual software (hence the podcast title). Thanks to JR for retrieving it a few days later.
No podcast now until Monday 26th November because of the international break.
One decade on from the greatest day in our history, we look back at achieving promotion to the Premier League for the first time, via the glory of a Wembley play-off victory. Bryan Hughes, who was in City's midfield that day, joins us to reminisce lengthily and candidly.
Quite jocular considering we haven't much to smile about. We did discuss two games from ten years ago, as we've done all season, but the recording software broke down. 0-0 v Bristol City and 2-2 v Cardiff City, in case you were wondering...
A slightly colourful discussion, as you might expect, to commence a new season of podcasts. We talk about the performance against Aston Villa, the activity over the summer (including the new gaffer) and look ahead to Burton Albion this weekend.
This season we are also going to look back at the historic achievements of ten years ago, when the 2007/08 side became the first City team to win promotion to the top flight. We're doing it on an anniversary basis, so this week it's remembering our hopes - and fears - in pre-season.
We had both hardware and software struggles during this podcast, which means you are likely to hear a notable decline in audio quality roughly halfway through. Soz, like.
We'll be back in the new year. Have a great Christmas.
