Season Review – 2021/22

This week we review our 2021/22 season. Steff, Ram, Ricky and Milo look back at the journey from Nuno to Antonio and all the details within. We also have our second annual awards, the Glory Glenns, as we also ponder the glorious cult ascendance of Emerson Royal. There’s lots to sink into so what are you waiting for?

Ode To Joy

Sing sing SING and CELEBRATE with The Game Is About Glory as Steff, Milo, James and Gareth look back at the 5-0 stuffing of Norwich which ensured the return of Champions League Football to the Lane. We also might gloat a tiny bit at our Woolwich neighbours, and we discover that within TGIAG ranks there sits an Aussie-residing Spud from Irvine Welsh’s “Trainspotting”.

Move Any Mountain

This week, Steff, Milo and James look back at the 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Anfield (where there was no shamen anybody in what was a Royal performance), and try to stay calm and non-hyperbolic as the biggest NLD ever looms on the horizon. We also look at why Newcastle are a force to be reckoned with, and how Dele could get us back into the CL. Missing all this would be naughty naughty verrry naughty, so 3-2-1…

Squeaky Bum Time

This week your The Game Is About Glory team of Steff, Milo, Ricky and Gareth bask in the pressure of this squeaky bum run in, analyses the 3-1 win over Leicester, deliberates the wild sophisticate that is Oliver Skipp and celebrates Ricky’s daughter seeing making her first ever trip to a game and seeing THAT goal. All this and we touch on what a Tight Fit it’s getting to be in the top 4…just got to win away, a win away at Anfield this Sunday, right?!

Dirty Cash

This week Steff, Ricky, James and Milo discuss David Pleat joining Pink Floyd for their first new music in over two decades, our 4-0 thumping of Aston Villa, whether thug-life returned to Villa Park, and we take a look back at the role of fullbacks and wingbacks over the last few decades. All this and the first ‘realsmell pod’ as we are brought into the heart of a filthy toilet in Kathmandu. Breeeathe in!

Celestial Bodies

This week Steff, Gareth, Ricky and Milo explore our solar system, why Roberto Carlos is shiiiiite, what apps we couldn’t live without and…oh, that’s right, there was a spot of football to discuss too! Cue glee, joy, spaniels, whiskey and the Conte machine in full flight-mode. Come ON!!!

Emotional Conte-nt

Steff, Milo and Ricky look back at Turf Moor lows, Elland Road highs, dynamic duos and Antonio Conte’s potentially menopausal media modulations which have seen him both violently throwing handbags and showering the squad with kisses within days. So not only do we drill into the matches that matter, this week you’ll also get a dose of aural HRT!

Oops!…We Did It Again

This week, Steff, Milo and James look back at the monumental win over Man City at Eastlands, purr over Kane’s perfect performance, wax lyrical for the umpteenth time on why we love Eric Dier, creates acronyms from that 95th winner, looks at mis-contextualising Antonio AND finds time to celebrate the legend that is Benoit Assou Ekotto. The patch is fixed and it WAS all real as you will hear…

Palace Pain and Sonny Delight

On this week’s pod, Steff, Milo, Gareth and Awesome look back at one of the greatest US Open tennis stories ever, evaluate the injury list at White Hart Lane, discuss the mighty Son Heung-min, ponder whether his Dad is in the running for father of the year, and Steff admits publicly to Milo he was wrong about how to say ‘Royal’…we might also discuss 22 men kicking a ball last Saturday, well, 11 at least…tune in for the shenanigans.
