For the first and final time Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson host the show together as they look back over almost 300 episodes of soccer silliness.

We are also honoured to feature a special introduction by Sir David Attenborough, w…
 
As the longest season ever comes to an end, we look at the role music played in deciding on who would be relegated from the Premier League. As a result, Watford issue an apology and we learn the secrets behind how the Villa go about signing players. Even that isn't enough to cheer Roy Keane up. Across the road, Birmingham City retire Jude Billingha…
 
Leeds are back where they belong (which we assume means they will no longer be just off the M1/M62), Liverpool have had their trophy, and more great English talent is headed for Germany with a surge of Beatlemania, and it's all in this latest episode. On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley & Jim Salveson. Additional voices this we…
 
Man City got the most important result of their season when their squad of superstar lawyers pulled it out of the back at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. A measly ten million euro fine annoyed the internet and Jose Mourinho, who was also upset about other things, despite finally getting his own TV show. And we said goodbye to world cup winner J…
 
Jose is turning into Mr Nice Guy, Ole is having tech problems at United, Man City fluff their lines when Bernardo Silva has a cuppa instead of giving Liverpool a Guard of Honour, and Nike launch a new ball that does new stuff, like roll and bounce. Finally, Iceland nail it again with their new logo launch. On The Left Side is written and produced b…
 
Everybody loves Jurgen Klopp even more now that he has taken Liverpool to the title, and experts try and work out how he did it, some throw a bit more than a street party. And while the Reds secured the top-flight title, there was sad news down at Selhurst Park, where one Premier League regular will fly no more. On The Left Side is written and prod…
 
While the Premier League is back, it's not quite as good as we remembered it. In fact the only thing that feels the same is the anger emanating from Roy Keane. While he does his best impression of Liam Neeson, fellow countryman shows off his skills with some baked goods. And while we get used to crowd noises, could there be a job for Keano shouting…

Football is coming back and no one is more excited than former player Paul Beesley. The lack of atmosphere is a worry though as seen at RB Salzburg and on the ISS with the Dragon Capsule. But amongst all the questions about how and if and when, Jim has one question that's really bothering him - Who's the chairman of QPR? On The Left Side is written…
 
Jurgen Klopp is annoyed at Gary Neville, Football fans are annoyed at Man Utd and everyone is annoyed at Dominic Cummings.

The theme music was written and performed by Katalina Kicks…
 
This week we take the chance to chat with fellow football podcasters Joel Emery and Adam Jarrell about the creation of The Offensive and fictional football club Ashwood City.

This episode also features the following music under Creative Co…
 
Amy sits in the satire chair this week as we remember how much England Women's Boss Phil Neville enjoys made-up sports like Table Tennis Basketball. Could he leave the Lionesses to become the new gaffer at Newcastle? What would hairy hands Richard Keys say about that? Plus which members of the Tory party would play where in your team? Meanwhile, Lu…
 
It's been a month since any football happened in the UK and people are starting to get seriously worried about the impact all this will have on the sport, and things like transfers and in turn - potatoes.

Bernardo Silva is in trouble with twitter again after a video of him tossing a chocolate banana pancake causes controversy, but it's all just symptomatic of the no football world we find ourselves in. Meanwhile, some footballers chip in to help the NHS, but what if they just built a new hospital? And Paul Pogba finally gets the chance to have a pop…
 
This episode contains a few swear words as the frustration of no football starts to take hold, combined with what Jim is calling the Belarus diet. The Government ask Footballers to take a paycut while Liverpool and Spurs go cap in hand because they are obviously so poor, and Piers Morgan speaks sense. On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant…
 
As the coronavirus continues to shut down normal life, we are slowly adapting to a world without football.

Could this be the future of the beautiful game? On The Left …
 
This week we found out who had been buying up all the worlds toilet rolls, and what happens when you ask a super computer who will win the Premier League, if it ever resumes. And while that may be behind closed doors, at least the FA have plans to stop us going hungry. Or do they? On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley & Jim Salve…
 
Just as Liverpool were on the verge of a runaway Premier League Victory, all football has stopped because of COVID-19. And it means there's also no sport on TV or radio which is causing problems for some outlets, and there are some creative solutions being offered for what to do instead, everything from E-sports to Guinea Pigs. Now go wash your han…

This weeks On The Left Side starts with a Manchester City's headline-grabbing antics but not for the reason you might think. It also takes on Liverpool's Premier League "slip" DESPITE having the quote "Best defender in the World" on the pitch and wonders if anyone thinks as much of Big Sam Allardyce as Big Sam Allardyce. Follow us on Twitter for ev…

Transfer deadline day saw one of the most drawn-out transfers in Bruno Fernandes AND one of the most surprising in Odion Igahlo go to Man Utd.

On The Left Side is written by Ant McGinley and Jim Salve…
 
It's often said that a team is 'on the beach' when they have nothing left to play for, and going off what Jurgen Klopp said this week, he is already there and as Liverpool are 19 points clear, who can blame him? Elsewhere things are on the up at Man Utd, unless your name is Ed Woodward. Still, it's nice to have a song sung about you, isn't it? On T…
 
Phil Neville, Rob Green, Jamie Carragher and Roy Keane have very different approaches to mathematics. Finn Tapp has a very different definition of being in a relationship. And have Liverpool got a different idea of what it takes to win the league? On The Left Side is written by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson, and this episode was produced in Manches…
 
Things are really hotting up at the minute. Not on the pitch or in the race for titles, but off the pitch where managers and players alike find themselves caught up in a scandal, so much that we had enough to do a special 'Uncovered' episode. However, it's still suitable for work. Unless you work in a religious establishment or nursery school. On T…

We made it through the silly season to the future and with Amazon stepping into the football arena, we wonder what might happen if Jeremy Clarkson joins the commentary team.

It looks like Mikel Arteta and Carlo Ancelotti are well on their way to new jobs at Arsenal and Everton, but they've taken their time sorting it out. In the meantime, they've filled the gaps with passion in the form of a couple of club heroes. Meantime the Italian FA have made a stand against Racism in their own unique way. On The Left Side is writ…
 
Nigel Pearson going to Watford heralds the arrival of the silly season and the return of the likes of what Tim Sherwood calls PROPER FOOTBALL MEN, even if those are the same men that dragged your team to the foot of the table. With a guest appearance from a knight of the realm in Sir David Attenborough, we also try and sell you some insurance for y…
 
It's that time of year when P45's seem to come thicker and faster than fixtures, and shortly after Spurs rang the changes, Arsenal and Watford have had a Christmas clean out as well. And speaking of cleaning there's a new robot at Selhurst Park this week, and it's one that actually does its job. On The Left Side is written by Ant McGinley and Jim S…

Liverpool extend their lead at the top of the premier league but instead of focusing on that we look at superstition and ask where Frank Lampard wees? Does Pep Guardiola believe in anything? Who is the next Paul Merson? And is there anything more dignified than a giant poppy mascot? The answer is yes. Yes, there is. On The Left Side is written by A…
 
Who likes Armpits anyway? Not Liverpool fans that's for sure in the latest nonsense surrounding VAR. This also allowed us to watch Andre Gomes and Granit Xhaka over and over again in various video nasties. Plus we ask what would happen if Jose Mourinho was Superman, would Arsenal be his Kryptonite... --------------- On The Left Side is written by A…
 
While Jim is on holiday Ant meets Chris Smith, the mind and hands behind the greatest team in the Buildersliga - FC Brickstand, and rediscovers the joy of a world of football without VAR and all the good bits in a surprisingly family-friendly episode. You can find out more about the team and join the club On The Left Side is written by Ant McGinley…
 
It's been a quiet week in football. I mean, if you ignore all the racist chants and banners and Pep Guardiola playing players out of position. So we do just that. In our ignorance, we instead ask if Roy Keane was unloved as a child, if Rob Green has a voice for radio, and if one Gambian commentator has ever seen a game of football before. ---- On T…
 
More drama than Shakespeare this week as footballing wife Detective Coleen Rooney turned Wagatha Christie and accused Rebekah Vardy of leaking stories to the Sun.

Many people feel that technology is ruining football for the fans, so have Amazon solved the problem by replacing the fans with robots? Meanwhile, Spurs are holding onto their manager if only because everyone is looking at how badly things are going at Manchester United. So bad in fact, that even Gandalf from Lord of the Rings couldn't save them. O…
 
While things are looking glum for Spurs, are things looking up for Newcastle? In a word no, no they're not. But there is a brochure out that makes Steve Bruce sound awesome. Amidst the takeover talk and getting stiffed by Leicester, the Magpies must be relieved that Souness has been having a pop at Pogba again. And is the only way to save Mancheste…
 
Again we find ourselves asking big questions like is something racist if the two people involved seem to be ok with it? What the heck is Jurgen Klopp's problem with the British climate, and where on earth did Ashley Cole learn to read? These, are just some of the many questions we will fail to answer in this episode. On The Left Side is written by …
 
After the most expensive team in Europe's top leagues lose to the cheapest, does this mean that we should just hand the Premier League title to Liverpool?

The International Break came after a Inter-racist break, in which some fans were asking "Can a monkey chant really be respectful?" We wonder if a terrible impression can be as well. And if there is anyone who doesn't annoy Graeme Souness? Elsewhere, Man United continue to run away with the Commercial Partnership League as they announce their New Of…
