Charlie Austin is the guest on the latest Stan Colleymore podcast. References us a few times at the start as the academy he was in. Says he learned more about being a footballer between 15-19 after we let him go and he played amateur football than when he was with us (that is not a dig at us, just telling his story)

He’s dabbled in management before I know, but is this his highest level club?

Bobby the Syrup Mikhailov, now president of Bulgarian FA, taking a verbal swing at Southgate.

Look forward to seeing whether he’s still got the syrup on Monday.

Trevor Morley hat trick up the other end IIRC.

Unrelated but I swear I remember Trevor Morley scoring a penalty with his head. OK, it was a rebound but it was near the penalty spot and the ball was about 3 inches off the ground.

Yep, definitely scored a rebound from his own pen with his head, I'm sure. Against Steve Francis maybe?

McShane getting very good reviews from Rochdale fans, it's good to see him back. One of my favourite players we've had in the last five years or so

By most accounts, prevented Rocky from conceding (at least) two goals yesterday.

Top bloke IRL

Delighted for him...hope it works out
