    · The Totally Football League Show

    Iain Macintosh and Matt Stanger are joined on the latest edition of The Totally Football League Show by Dean Gripton, the head of EFL research for Football Manager.Dean knows a fair bit about the lower leagues, so we draw on his knowledge as we tackle Preston’s progress in the Championship (6m 15s) and Forest Green’s maiden season in League 2 (32m 50s). We also give Scunthorpe plenty of love for their unbeaten run - and their unbeatable midweek carvery (21m 00s). We also play a bit of Fan League (14m 05s), get a review of the new documentary about Bradford City (28m 00s) and round things off with a visit by Joe Crilly from our new sponsors William Hill, who gives us all the odds you need to know (40m 50s).PARISH NOTICES:• we’ve got new sponsors!

  • A brief history of AFC Wimbledon, frustrating Fulham and Michael Bublé at Mansfield

    Iain Macintosh and Matt Stanger are joined for this week’s episode of The Totally Football League Show by the one and only Ivor Heller, one of the founding members of AFC Wimbledon and the club’s current commercial director. Ivor tells us about a whirlwind decade-and-a-half at the helm of the club who were forced to start from scratch and now find themselves in League One (3m 45s). Next, we find out how Fulham have adjusted to life in the Championship - not that they’re looking to stick around in the division much longer (26m 25s) - before playing Fan League (34m 40s), where we praise Brentford and look ahead to Sunderland’s crucial clash with Middlesbrough. Finally, we talk Mansfield, their manager Steve Evans, and some remarkable off-field entertainment heading to the One Call Stadium this Christmas (42m 20s).PARISH NOTICES:• we’re working with CALM, the Campaign Against Living Miserably, who are dedicated to preventing male suicide.
