Flav is joined by James in the absence of Matt. We talk to Anwar about his experiences as a pro footballer from an ethnic minority.
He cut his teeth at West Ham during one of the greatest generation of youth players ever seen. He shared the dressing room with Ian Wright, Joe Cole, Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick, Leon Britton, and Frank Lampard. It wasn't always easy, but Uddin was a big part of the atmosphere at the club and has amazing stories to tell.
Oh and there's the usual stories of horrendous injuries that will turn your stomach...
See you at the far post.
