The racism allegations were definitely after he'd started appearing on Mince, as I remember hoping that the story surfacing wouldn't mean no more pod Pete.

Yeah I remember after the early Beardsley bits they would joke about how it sounded like he was on his way back to the top. I think the trouble with the foreign lads came to light not long after the character was introduced.

They don't generally try to be topical on the podcast. Bob even seems reluctant to do his Piers Morgan sketches, which have an edge of contempt that most of his material lacks.

Beardsley and McLaren are football people though. JC isn’t.

I assumed Bob was joking when he mentioned in the latest episode that he was writing his memoirs - it's always impossible to tell with Bob - but no, it's true!

A bit rum of the article/press release to overlook Mince as one of Bob's ongoing comedy activities, though.

I'm delighted that the 'origin of the Alderman' extract from the latest Mince episode actually appears to be real! Can't wait to read this.

Is that the first time in a while we've heard from the Scottish island? One of my favourite segments.

Looking forwards to Bob's booky-wook.

Likewise! Christ, he did actually once meet someone like the alderman? What a life he's led.

"Do you drink, Robert?"
"Well, I like a drink at the weekend, like."
"I drink EVERY DAY, Robert. I find it a joy."

Cracked up at the delivery of that. Yes, the audiobook is gonna be an absolute must.

Audible are back doing cheap trials again (for me and my brother, at least), so you can get this on a trial for 99p and it'll be there waiting for you in September whether you're still on Audible or not.

Any Jamie Vardy bits? Those are the best, and sadly quite scarce

I think Vardy arrived a bit later.

He's in this though:

I think Vardy first appeared during the World Cup, where he led an opposing faction in the England camp that got Harry Kane in a right fluffery-buffery, but I could have missed something.

Always enjoyed in those Harry Maguire being portrayed as an absolute country bumpkin despite the fact he's from Sheffield. I think the first World Cup Gangs of the EPL might be one of my favourite bits of comedy ever.

I love how Mortimer's impressions sound like the people look like they should sound like rather than how they actually do, and their personalities are a bit of that mixed with a bit of complete fantasy

I think my favourite from Gangs is the Jonjo black pudding one.

Maguire does look like a farm animal, tbf.

Do you work on a farm next to Sellafield?

Speaking as a United fan, I'm more surprised that someone with a noggin that size is so useless at heading the ball. Lucky for England that one yesterday landed at his feet.

Managed to find the relevant 'World Cup Gangs of the EPL' episode and chuckled heartily again at Raheed Sterling (Bob using a variation of his Donald Stott voice) droning on about his boats and Jordan Henderson's enthusiasm for shortbread biscuits.

Is that the one where Bob's eating meat on the toilet? "You look like a right dopey cunt!" said in a Transylvanian accent had me choking in the street.

Same, it's somewhere in the episode 49-51 range. It's the hugely unexpected use of the word 'cunt' that, like Steve Dave, killed me laughing in the street.

My biggest ever Mince laugh remains the stilted delivery of Eric Dyer (sp) saying "sorry boss. I didn't think anything" in the scene by the pool.

Biggest laugh for me is still Bob's Dara O'Briain impression, i think it was a sketch where Peter Beardsley went out to dinner and bumped into him, back when Bobs Peter impression was a bit more mumbly. But the Dara bit came out of the blue and fucking floored me.
