The very first podcast in a season-long adventure comes for free – for the next one it'll be a perk for subscribers only. At just ?1.50 a month we're pretty much giving it away… well, we've got to pay the bar bill somehow.
Will Dickson shine at the stadium of light? What went wrong with Safri? Can Cureton become a true City legend? Was Earnie just a gun for hire? What should we expect from City this season? Whose round is it? Who's going to fill the number 5 shirt? Where's the lav? All these questions and more are chewed over in half an hour of wall-to-wall City chat.
