London Magpie Group present The Outcast – ‘Foxes Outfoxed by Crafty NUFC’
The latest podcast from the London Magpie Group and AshleyOut.com, ‘The Outcast’ is now available following Friday’s success at Leicester with Premier League status all but confirmed.
Having now published their 8th episode the group review the atmosphere and action from the empowering victory at the King Power alongside their man in the Midlands, Bryn and pore over the action including Ayoze Perez’s stunning header as well as quotes and political statements from Rafa, the players and the club alike.
Alongside as the dissection of Matt Ritchie’s recent comments regarding the team ‘not getting enough credit’ the podcast assesses the role of the fans by looking at the mass protest efforts and debating if, how, where and when protest works best and if at all.
Bryn, the opening guest on this week’s pod, explained that ‘living in exile in the Midlands – it’s difficult to follow the team as much as I used to and being able to appear on the podcast means I have a medium through which to express my opinions after a fantastic game on Friday night’
The London Magpie Group podcasters encourage others to get involved at games, through social media and they also hope to utilise the podcast for other events such as potential fan protests. As Bryn explains, the atmosphere could be like that every week’ if investment was put in to the team and he at one point describes Rafa as a defensive ‘maestro.’
Usual presenter Jay also asks ‘Is it time to eat humble pie with regards to Ayoze Perez?’
Co-host Andrew alludes to the role of past and potential protest action including boycott and sparks debate surrounding the effectiveness of the few that have been attempted.
They also look retrospectively at the most enjoyable and best goals scored so far this season – settling on a top three.
