Episode 10 - Stuart Fuller & Frank McAvennie, West Ham 1985-86

The Halcyon Podcast

Adam and Rob break with tradition by welcoming two guests onto the pod to tell the tale of West Ham’s remarkable 1985-86 season. They are joined by Stuart Fuller, author of two Football Tourist books, former football blogger and current chairman of Lewes FC, to discuss his chapter in From the Jaws of Victory and what it was like to be a fan during that famous season for the Hammers.Adding colour to Stu’s story in his own inimitable style, we are delighted to welcome the undisputed star of that side, Frank McAvennie. While Stu talks of what it was like to be a teenager in thrall of his heroes on the pitch, while having to choose between a girl and West Ham, Frank discusses his experiences of coming so close to glory but ultimately just missing out.We also cover the time Frank bumped into his pal Billy Connolly while filming Saint and Greavsie, his appearance on Wogan, the underrated talent of Alan Devonshire, almost signing for Luton instead of the Hammers, coming second in the Golden Boot race to Gary Lineker, Mexico ‘86 and more.We hear from Stu on the rude health of Lewes FC during lockdown and his search for a new manager, a shortlist for which may or may not include Frank or another West Ham legend, Julian Dicks.As ever, you can buy Jaws of Victory from us directly (or the ebook on Amazon if that's your thing), and follow us on Twitter @HalcyonPublish1 and @magicspongers

112: John Lyall will sort it ft. Boys of '86 legend Frank McAvennie

We Are West Ham Podcast

West Ham put the Blades to the sword with a thoroughly professional performance on Sunday thanks to a goal from under pressure frontman Sebastien Haller.  The Hammers could have had more if it wasn't for Jarrod Bowen's indecision and Tomas Soucek's missed sitter.  And Will Pugh, James Jones and Tom Edwards discuss all of that and more as the lads are joined by West Ham's iconic Boys of '86 striker Frank McAvennie to give his views on the Hammers' current situation.  Frank was Tony Cottee's famous strike partner in the club's most successful season to date with the pair bagging a staggering 46 league goals between them as West Ham finished third. The Scot gives his views on David Moyes, Haller, Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals as well as his predictions for next Monday's game against Aston Villa.  And of course it would be criminal of the lads to let Frank go without asking him about his time at the club and boy did he deliver.  Some hilarious and engaging anecdotes about his time in East London including a belter about iconic manager John Lyall.  TV presenter and Aston Villa fan Tim Warwood also dialed in to talk Villa's visit to the London Stadium next Monday.  The Betway Charity bet section was back as always before a very tough round of Name That Game. And to wrap up, after Matt Beard left as manager of West Ham's Women team last week, the lads were joined by Geoff Longhurst - dad of West Ham Women's midfielder Kate Longurst and lifelong Hammers fan for the inside track on Matt's departure.  Please leave us a REVIEW and RATE and SUBSCRIBE to the podcast and our YouTube channel if you like what we do.

20: A "disgraceful" few days - Featuring Frank McAvennie and Tony Carr

We Are West Ham Podcast

This week, on the eve of Deadline Day, James Jones, Will  Pugh and Aaron Paul spent most of the show moaning about how much of a disgrace the club has been over the last week or so. From the defeat to Bournemouth all the way through to the thrashings at the hands of Wimbledon and Wolves, everything seems to be going wrong at the club again. And don't even get us started on Marko Arnautovic. The lads also take a breath to discuss transfer rumours and the team's chances against Liverpool on Monday night. (spoiler: they're not confident!) If all that's not enough to whet your whistle, then it's also worth noting the lads were joined on the phones by West Ham legends Frank McAvennie and Tony Carr, who both gave their views on recent events at the club, as well as what they think may happen for the rest of the season. Enjoy, and don't forget to rate and subscribe - a nice review would be lovely, too. Irons.
