The First Footy Almanac Podcast



  1. mickey randall says

    Loved it. Great fun. Like being in the pub! Trust it will be a regular event.

  2. Fantastic stuff! Look forward to many more.

  3. The funniest thing I’ve ever heard on the Almanac.

  4. Or anywhere else this year.
    Brilliant guys. Hope there are many more.

  5. Peter Flynn says

    Off the mark with a boundary.

    Good stuff.


  6. sean gorman says

    Nice work Gents – but I will raise you!

  7. Mark 'Swish' Schwerdt says

    I’ll see your Hunt and raise you a Cunnington.

    Also was this recorded at 766 Elizabeth St, I’ve just started working in that building?

    And all this time I thought that Matt Q was the guy who filled in for Red Symons sometimes, whoops wrong pocket.

  8. You’re all too kind, and thank you for taking the time to pass on your thoughts.

    We want it to be a weekly thing during the footy season, so keep your eyes open for episode two next Thursday.

    Mickey: if you’re happy to take care of the tab, we’ll gladly set up in a rub-a-dub and do the podcast Derek and Clive style. Really.

    Gigs, Peter B: Thanks gents. If it was half as much fun to listen to as it was to get it down on tape, we’re looking forward to many more as well.

    P.Flynn: Thanks, the fielder didn’t even give chase.

    Sean: The bar has been well and truly raised. Thanks for the tip.

    Swish: I can neither deny or confirm the address for security reasons. But if you wanted to hang around after working hours and jump in the lift one night, you’d be even money to find yourself on the panel.


  9. Steve et al….congratulations – excellent work and thoroughly enjoyable. The banter was effortless and the one liners flying around about the names on the backs of the guernsey was priceless. Looking forward to a Peoples Elbow every week from Litza. Any chance of the podcast being hosted via iTunes??

  10. Stu: iTunes very shortly!

  11. Malcolm Ashwood says

    Brilliant guys the show flowed effortlessly great 1 liners ( loved the parents line re extras ) look forward to many more ! Well played

  12. E.regnans says

    Brilliant work, gents.
    A few of us were talking about exactly this idea on Wednesday at the Lomond. And then, whacko, it’s bobs up online on the Thursday.
    (Further evidence that all the world’s great ideas are associated with the Lomond).
    Room for a Roy & HG role there amid the Couldabeen banter..?
    Brilliant idea; & nailed the execution.

  13. John Butler says

    Discussed for many years, finally a reality. Natural there’d be strong demand among Almanackers for the sound of their own voices.

    Great work guys.

    Glad to hear Peta Searle get a mention.

  14. Luke Reynolds says

    Fantastic work guys, hugely entertaining, wanted it to keep going. Looking forward to the next one.

  15. Yep. Very good. If it was up to me you blokes would be getting paid to do that

  16. Lovely work lads, the conversation flowed and the wit shone. Nice work hosting Matty Q. Keep ’em coming. Cheers
