Talk of Tutonda

Talk of Tutonda

2020-10-1440:44

Duke is joined by Cazzer and friend of the show, Jake Barber. The sporty pizza pod club discuss WINS and the development of sexy Garner-ball.Caz is seriously impressed with Dave Tutonda and Jake has plenty of superlatives for Josh Hare, who have both looked very good on their respective wings.We are all pleasantly surprised by Daly's first goal for the club and we dissect the whole of the incisive move that came moments after Jaakkola was picking the ball out of his net. A special mention for Josh Grant with his pass out to Hare, but did he mean it though?There's not much sympathy for Michael Appleton's post-match saltiness, though Duke thinks Ehmer should have conceded a penalty in the first half, but does he care? Does he heck?!We also look out our latest transfer news with youngsters Mehew, Tomlinson and Phillips being told they can go out on loan, with Tomlinson and Phillips securing moves to Bath City and Chippenham Town respectively. We also see Kyle Bennett move to Grimsby until the end of the season - however there are question marks over the clubs handling of the situation. We also saw two incomings, both on a permanent basis. Ben Liddle joining from Middlesbrough and then just before we recorded on Tuesday, we got the announcement that Ali Koiki, a LWB, was going to join us. This posed the question, will we see some more players move on? The team also give us their predictions for the upcoming match against Burton (H). Finally a shout out to our sponsor Kahuna flooring, who supply and fit all types of flooring for your home or workplace.

Phil discusses the 5,000+ Gasheads who travelled with them to Bloomfield Road and the role they played in the promotion season.We also discuss his relationship with his team-mates, The Tote End, the move from Eastville and what it was like to be a professional footballer in the 80s & 90s compared to present day.Finally, we talk about the career-ending leg break and what that then meant for Phil's life going forward.Support the show (https://patreon.com/gascast)

A lack of leadership

A lack of leadership

2020-09-2940:04

Mets is joined by Max Alderson and debutant Mike Willett. In a special treat for the lads they are recording from the Sporty!The lads talk about the defensive frailties, especially from set pieces and if its the responsibility of the coaches to drill players or if individuals need to take more responsibility for tracking their men.At the other end of the pitch things are looking grim and they discuss the lack of chances created for our strikers.Each gives their stance on Garner in/out and if we are seeing any signs of Garnerball being shown on the pitch. Could our next game being Northampton who are expected to struggle be the chance for the players to show what they can do?With the window closing on the 16th of October they discuss areas still to strengthen and what kind of player they each would want to bring in.Finally a shout out to our sponsor Kahuna flooring, who supply and fit all types of flooring for your home or workplace.

A CHAT WITH: Anwar Uddin

A CHAT WITH: Anwar Uddin

2020-09-2901:22:45

Duke is joined Anwar Uddin to talk about his fascinating and varied career, both past and present. From playing youth football for West Ham with the likes of Rio Ferdinand, he then moved to Sheffield Wednesday which ended prematurely after the collapse of ITV Digital left Wednesday in financial trouble. Wednesday's loss was Rovers gain as Anwar made the journey to North Bristol. This was after John Still used his persuasive skills to assure Anwar that Rovers were heading in a better direction than *checks notes* Swansea City. Anwar got the first team football he so craved at Rovers and loved his time in the city, however a horrific injury meant his Rovers career was cut short after only 19 league appearances. He shares tales of how he got involved in the local community whilst on the side-lines and tells us about his times rooming with The Latvian. We look at his time at Dag & Redbridge where he captained the side and was involved in two promotions - including reaching League One on a shoestring budget. This was under the stewardship of John Still, who Anwar cites as being a pivotal reason for linking up with Dagenham.Anwar discusses his current role with the Fans For Diversity campaign and why he believes that football has the power to unify all walks of life. He also shares his thoughts on the potential at Rovers to get more fans through the turnstiles. There's also chat about the Black Lives Matter campaign and whilst 'taking the knee' is important, it doesn't go far enough.Finally there's talk about his assistant manager role at Aldershot Town and how he/they managed to secure the services of *checks notes again* Ross McCormack.Support the show (https://patreon.com/gascast)
Caz is joined by Donny fan Dan Nice to talk about Bristol Rovers' next fixture away at the Keepmoat Stadium.Although The Gas have gained one point from two difficult fixtures, the performances have been unappealing for many of the Gasheads who tuned in to iFollow. The pressure is mounting on Ben Garner's shoulders as he desperately seeks his first win of the season.Doncaster are so far unbeaten in the league, although have struggled to keep a clean sheet. They most recently secured an impressive 3-1 win over Charlton Athletic at The Valley. Dan gives us his thoughts on their season so far and what we can expect from Darren Moore's side on Saturday.Support the show (https://patreon.com/gascast)
The Stadium of Fight

The Stadium of Fight

2020-09-1551:011

Max is joined by Mets and friend of the show Lucy Ford.After a battling 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light, Max, Mets and Lucy dissect the game and the much improved performance from the game against Ipswich.They discuss how a gritty defensive performance earned the Gas a point. They discuss Phil Parkinsons post match comments and if this was time wasting or streetwise 'game management'.The return of Ansii between the sticks made a huge difference, with a string of saves. Is he the best Rovers keeper ever?They look at Hanlan and how he has slotted into a front three. Will he be able to lead the line or will the Gas need to get another striker in before the transfer window opens?Lastly they look ahead to Saturdays game against Ipswich and give their predictions for a game that we can only hope goes better than at Portman Road.Finally a shout out to our sponsor Kahuna flooring, who supply and fit all types of flooring for your home or workplace.

Mets caught up with Matthew Davis aka Mavis, Nathan Hallett-Young and Natty Coles from the GasGirls.After their 2019/20 season was declared null and void the girls find themselves back where they started 12 months ago. This was especially upsetting as they had a 100% record in the league and were only one win away from clinching the title.Nathan explains how he wants the game to be played and this is born out in the attacking football the girls have been playing. This is typified in a resounding 6-0 win against Bristol and West in the WFA cup on Sunday.Resolutely a tracksuit manager, we also get an insight into his music tastes which are truly horrific.Mavis talks about the support the GasGirls have got, not just from the Community Trust, but from the wider Gas community. He also talks about the ethos of the club with no room for homophobia, racism or sexism at its core.Natty talks about what its like captaining the GasGirls and handling the expectation that comes with the badge. She's not afraid to dish out a 'boot up the bum' on the pitch if someone isn't carrying their weight either. A woman after Mets own heart!Support the show (https://patreon.com/gascast)
Duke is joined by Matt from Gills In The Blood to discuss another Rovers capture of a Gillingham player - this time it is 23-year-old forward, Brandon Hanlan.Maybe not the marquee signing that some were expecting but the 23-year-old forward joins the Gas on a two-year deal and has scored 16 goals across 84 appearances for Gillingham. Garner describes Hanlan as a powerful and skilful forward who can both create and score goals who also has the work ethic and energy he wants at the front end of the team.We hear about Hanlan as a player and whether there is more to come from him, including if he will be able to become a prolific bagsman?Matt also gives us the lowdown on what the fee might be and also gives us his thoughts on how Rovers will fare this season as well as giving us some intel on Gillingham.Support the show (https://patreon.com/gascast)
