Loving this. The Scottish dirge in the latest one about Michael Mowbray and the barndance is the best song yet.

They should drop the Memory Man sections though.

RIP [spoiler]Casper the snake[/spoiler] :(

Perhaps that means we'll be seeing new regular sections? It could do with freshening up, as it's getting more and more repetitive.

Due to Dawson's absolutely heinous online presence I've given this a wide berth so far. How intrusive is his presence? If he's basically Scharpling to Bob's Wurster I'll probably give it a go.

I literally only knew Dawson from this (to be honest, when I first started listening to AM, I thought he was just a random mate of Bob's), so have no hate grounding.

However, Dawson is effectively the presenter, so is the lead in that respect, but he allows Bob plenty of time.  I would say it's a fair and even 50/50.

Thank you. I'll give it a bash then.

The image of a snake, spiked with antidepressants, dancing around Steve McClaren's house, is as hilarious as the end-of-episode song is moving.

Anyone else going to the live show next month?

The mere suggestion of [spoiler]Steve McLaren driving a nearly dead snake to the vet in a clown car[/spoiler] is fucking brilliant and made me laugh a fucking lot.

Catching up on these... Bob's [Spoiler]song about Casper and the subsequent rush to the vet in the clown car[/Spoiler] almost had me in tears of laughter. I really could spend all day every day listening to Bob talk about anything.

Andy needs to stop trying to match Bob's stories. His attempts with the likes of the Corbyn bits look awfully weak by comparison. He's fine when they're both sparring but he needs to be more a facilitator figure for Bob'a genius than positioned as any kind of equal in a double act.

He's getting better. I liked the secret footballer Siegfried V Herriot story Bob, as usual, stole the show with Steve mclaren and Casper. Big Sam fucked up again. I was guffawing out loud walking while out the dog. I wish I had a bob.

Yeah. It's just way too samey. They need to change up the formats and what they talk about.

Only in it for Bob's stories about Steve, the Alderman and the occasional song now.

I'm still on board with this, and look forward to new episodes, but yes mainly for Bob's stories/whimsy.

I don't think I'll ever get enough of him, as the fat lass, calling people 'rodney plonkers'. Also, when Steve had seen the tape of Big Sam and the fat lass going at it, Steve's 'Fuck you' made me snort in the office.

It's still a must listen for me, but I agree they need some new ideas. I guess they dropped the football content to give it a broader appeal but I really enjoyed them talking about Derek Costa and Emerson with his "Hair projection."

The output is getting increasingly sporadic so I'm guessing they're winding down to a long break once Bob goes off on tour.

The book has the potential to be amazing though, if they work with some really good artists..

I got back into this after a hiatus. I can't listen to it too often as I find Andy Dawson a bit try hard and annoying.

Gangs of the EPL is my new favourite section.

I see they're doing live shows now.

Has anyone put together a compilation of Bob's various stories? Utterly hilarious stuff for the most part.

I've just been getting into this over the last day or so.  Its ok without being consistently laugh-out loud funny, but ok for a bit of background.  I also find Andy Dawson a bit try hard, but from ep 8 on it seems to improve, with Dawson giving Mortimer a bit room.

There's no compilation of stories but they did a Christmas podcast that's a compilation of all bob's "songs" including his insane Scottish stories. I listen to it when I'm trying to fall asleep. Although some of them are dangerously catchy. Found myself singing "Bright colours, bright FUCKING LIGHTS, sexy ladies in expensive tights" to myself at work for days.

One of these days I'm going to edit the Steve McLaren and Casper, Robson Green/Mark Lawrenson tales and 'Gangs of the EPL' into compilations. Then I'll put them on YouTube.

It will be the noblest and most generous thing I will ever do.

Yeah, I don't think I started from the beginning. It took a while to warm up.

In truth, only Mortimer's songs and stories are the bits worth listening to.

Dawson's heinous online presence? What do you mean? I only know him from this podcast and Twitter, and he's always come across as a genial, funny chap.

I love listening to this pair talking shite, it's such a tonic.

Phil Jones' genial Charlie Williams accent and Bob's struggle to keep up all of the voices that cracks me up.

This is back to being very funny again.

Bob's geordie accent ("chick-en dipp-ahs and bloo drink") is great, just great.

They shouldn't do them too often. Best to save it all up for when it's good enough.
