Not sure what to call this week's episode people! Stanley is joined by Joe and Dave to discuss the games from this week. Joe does a great away fan interview with a chirpy QPR fan. Stanley calls Dave the wrong name multiple times. Dave buggers off half-way through the podcast too.

Stanley is joined by Rob for the first time in a while and debutant Tinners who may or may not have had a few too many pints pre-podcast.

Rank #11: #71: Catsitting, Trojans and Italian Football Journalists
Hows that for a title?! Rob joins Stanley to form the kind of duo that podcast listeners could only dream of. We're down in Tooting where Stanley is catsitting for his sister over the weekend so Rob gets distracted a couple of times by their presence and cat-like actions. Stanley also gets overly analytical about one of Lee Johnson's johnsonisms with the help of his 'Classics' expert Billy. Matteo Fontana also pops in for a Skype chat all about Adam Nagy. Oh, there were two games of football to discuss too!

Rank #14: #61: A few Points and a few Pints
Stan is joined by OG podcast member Joe to discuss the mental game vs Sheffield United. This episode was recorded Saturday night in the hostel so we can only apologise for how beer'd up they both are. This is a rare occurrence and likely won't happen again for a while. Hopefully you all see the funny side of it! Harry butts in with 5 minutes to go too to 'help' us round up the episode.

Stanley is back from the forest and has left his hair behind. The newly shaven host tries his best to drag himself, Jamie and Rob through this week's episode.

Rank #19: #70: One Cough in Bristol
Episode #70, Stanley is joined by Rob and Jamie who are even more useless and hungover than last week. We discuss QPR twice with the help of a great away fan sound diary and two excellent QPR fan interviews. Frustratingly we had a great discussion near the end about DUNDER and shirt sponsors but unfortunately the sound got messed up in a really strange way. Will have a look at why that happened. Anyway, hope you're all enjoying the podcast! Do people read these still? Tweet us or comment on our facebook page if you read this. I'll reply back if you do!
