EPISODE 62: I'm siting here writing this, drunk! Because we had so many technical challenges this episode hahahaha!!! So have a few drinks and listen to this one... it makes it brilliant! What was that is a celebratory blast and we go over the final match of the season and chat about where we thought the Irons would place at seasons end... one of us was right!! Then Social Shenanigans has a poetic and creative touch as we air a 2 part list from our Twitter favorite Jack Gambardella.. ella :-).  Then we have an amazing guest on West Ham A to Z... a real surprised guest is this one.  Of course Adam screams a lot in this episode as always, and Wayne is just a wonderful human bean! Enjoy it as much as I did drinking it! Hahahahahahaha

EPISODE 61: Well it has been a tough couple of weeks and we are all feeling it. But the Lads are gonna attempt to bring a spring back into your step this episode.  Adam starts with an impassioned rant before the two review the last two matches and highlight how brilliant Benrahma' s goal was in What Was That? Social Shenanigans has a burst of positive energy at the end thanks to a well written little poem.  Then it's on to our new Quiz, West Ham A to Z! and our second competitor to make it onto the leader board! The big question... is Franco still in the lead or has he been toppled... tune in for fun and find out.  The end of this episode is, well... a bit poopy thanks to Adam but I laughed until I cried when I listened to it!
