The Portcast Episode 10: The Sandpit Meets Sven (Part 1)

 

Yes, it’s been a long time coming, but good things come to wait! Our interview with Sven, the creator of legendary Thai football website www.thai-fussball.com is finally here, so be prepared for some back-in-the-day stories from the Kangaroos of Prague to the Blue Marlins of Sriracha.

Part one features a lot of stadium talk, and a couple of time-honoured debates about Thai football standards vs. European football standards and the social vs. sporting aspect of watching live football.

Then there’s me giving an entirely justifiable torrent of abuse to former Port flop Sompong Soleb for those who just like a good old rant, although the fearless Sven soon turns the tables on us and gives the Sandpit a well-deserved chewing out!

We also discuss Daniel Polomski and Tobias Enkel’s project Football Fans Asia which you can find on their website or their Youtube channel. Their video about a certain Khlongtoei football club is in the making, so make sure to follow their progress.

 

The Portcast Episode 4: Zone F Meets Tim Russell

 

The Portcast is back with a brand new feature – Zone F – in which we chat to a different Port fan in each episode and get their thoughts on all things Tarua!

In this first episode, The Portcast’s own Michael Parkinson, Tom Earls, interviews Sandpit founder Tim Russell and finds out about his unlucky orange underpants, his dream of being able to eat meat pies at the PAT, and his man-crush on Genki Nagasato.

If you’re a Port fan & would like to take part in Zone F, drop us a message. And in the meantime, enjoy our latest podcast!

 

The Portcast Episode 3 pt2: The Imaginary Draw at Suphanburi

 

In pt2 of Episode 3 of the Portcast, Dom fights off a randy cab driver, Tim, despite being sober, is convinced that Port got a draw at Suphanburi, and Tom comes over all Nostradamus (rather than ‘comes all over Nostradamus’, which would certainly have made for more interesting listening). Look out for Episode 4 coming up during the 5-week break!

 

 

The Portcast Episode 3 pt1: The Coming of Zico

 

The Portcast is back baby! In Episode 3 pt1 we welcome Port’s new big-name coach, discuss the toe-curlingly embarrassing shambles that was the June transfer window, and have a good laugh at our old friend Thiago Cunha. If you’ve noticed a higher level of discussion and professionalism about The Portcast this time, it’s only because one of us was stone cold sober for medical reasons. This will not happen again so make the most of it.

 

 

The Portcast Episode 2 pt3: Think About the Future

 

In yesterday’s Portcast post we enjoyed Tom’s stats quiz, in which Tim secured a triumphant victory over Dom. Today we look forward to the second half of the season and predict how Port will fare, as well as speculating as to what the June transfer window may have in store. Enjoy, and keep an eye out for Episode 3 coming soon!

 

 

The Portcast Episode 2 pt2: Statto’s Quiz

 

 

In yesterday’s Portcast post we looked back on the first half of the season. Today we dive into the nerdy world of football stats as Tom ‘Statto’ Earls quizzes Dom & Tim on some Port FC facts & figures. Will Dom’s Sangsom-addled brain get to grips with the numbers, or will Tim’s brand loyalty to Port shirt sponsors Leo guide him to victory? Listen to find out, and play along…

 

The Portcast Episode 2 pt1: Halftime

 

The Portcast is back, with not one, not two, but three new ‘casts this week. We recorded Episode 2 on Friday night and what with the excitement of Muangthong v Chiang Rai on the TV, and copious amounts of Leo and Sangsom, we got a little carried away and ended up talking for over an hour. So we’ve split Episode 2 into 3 parts.

In part 1, we take a look back at the first half of the season and discuss the best (and worst) moments, including our favourite matches, goals, away fans and more. Look out for parts 2 & 3 coming later this week.

 

The Portcast Ep1 (Pilot) – The Season So Far with Special Guest Josimar Rodrigues

 

Welcome to the pilot episode of The Portcast, our hopefully regular Sandpit podcast on all things Port. We plan to feature regular discussions, match previews/reviews, interviews and more, though I suspect most episodes will involve Tom, Dom & Tim sitting around talking bollocks.

In this first episode, we discuss Port’s 8 matches so far with our special guest, Brazilian striker Josimar Rodrigues. Please make allowances for the sound quality, and for the fact that Josimar and Dom are not as audible as they might be (which of course makes a change in the latter’s case) – we’re new to this podcasting lark and learning as we go along.

If you have any ideas for, or want to take part in, future podcasts, please let us know. In the meantime, happy listening!
