Bob as Peter Beardsley reciting crap old jokes is a 100% reliable formula for tearful hysterics. The bit where Andy broke on the "funfair dismissal" punchline, jesus.

Completely agree with the poster upthread who said that the Mark Lawrenson stories are irritating because of Andy having to repeat the lines, I've always been of that opinion and I'd thought they'd ditched them long ago. Bring back Steve McLaren and Casper!

One recent-ish aspect of the podcast I enjoy is their unironic TV and film recommendations, where it suddenly turns into a completely different type of podcast for a minute and a half or so. Glad to hear Bob's a fan of last year's cinematic highlight 'A Ghost Story'.

Andy's reactions to the Beardsley joke-book jokes are just so bloody lovely and joyous.

This is as good as podcasts get. I thought the Peter Beardsley stuff was great initially but a bit too dark, sad and grim.
Tacking these jokes on the end and singing "one Peter Beardsley" really cuts through the bleakness.

The way Bob gleefully soars into the chorus 'Sunderland is FUCKING NIGHTMARE' is a thing of beauty.

Anyone else think there was a bit of genuine frustration from Bob in the middle of the Mark Lawrenson bit?

Yea i think Bob has warmed to the character he created, - i think thats part of why bobworld is so charming and funny - hes always curious and admiring of his characters, where as in Andy's world he often has to have the last laugh

The thing I love most about his relentless slating of Sunderland is the clear self awareness that being from Middlesbrough it's definitely a case pot calling the kettle black but he just doesn't care one iota and Andy lets it slide as any straight man should. Having been to both places many times I'd struggle to decide which was the worst shithole.

I also miss McClaren and Casper. I dont know why McClaren doesnt make an appearence in British Managers Club. I think McClaren definitely fits the criteria.

That would be good, McLaren and his mid-hair oxbow smashing through the doors.

Related to this is Bob's tendency to do completely overblown accents for yer Geordies and Sunderlanders even though being from the northeast himself he can probably do something more subtle you get yer Robson Greenes and the two jakeys in the toilet from Scenes from Sunderland.

How great would it be if in the last ever episode it was just 30 minute story incorporating every character Bob does. Maybe some football award ceremony in Stockton or something.

That would be amazing.

I feel you quite well. McClaren and Sean Dyche doing the observational comedy battle is a thing of beauty. https://youtu.be/4juEa2qjYzI "it was his first day so he wears a nice, short sleeved, comfort fit shirt in powder blue" - those mundane touches that Bob adds to his characters are just fucking ace. Beardsley never quite does it for me as much as McClaren though, can't get past the voice.

I do not want to countenance the thought that there will ever be a last episode...

I've listened to Mick McCarthy's bastard rant about 5 times now. Every time he said 'bastard' it was still funny. Every single time.

No mention of Bob saying there will be a new series of BNO? That's big news, or was it already well known?

I think it was mentioned on here (somewhere) around Christmas time.
It was announced that there would be a series on BBC Four before the BNO 'one-off' was even broadcast.

Peter Beardsley's Humpty Dumpty gag was so unexpectedly puerile, I nearly gave myself a hernia.

I have just screamed at that bit, and possibly alarmed my neighbours
