I am the warped mind behind On The Left Side the (award-nominated you know?) Funny Football Show found on GSITM. Its the ideal accompaniment to all those serious football podcasts you listen to... you won't find any statistics of analysis there, just a load of funny stuff from the last few days of football. I have worked in radio as a producer and presenter for the last 20 years and currently, amongst other things, have the pleasure of hosting a football phone-in alongside some footballing legends, in what is (currently) the centre of the footballing universe: Manchester. You can find me in various places via the links below or in person if you hide behind the wheelie bins outside my house.
