The way they started off - lauding Karl Henry, discounting Furlong, ignoring Scowen during a discussion about midfield steel - I thought somebody had sponsored the acid instead of the beer, but things seemed to calm down a bit after that.

Have to agree about Polter - I like Matt Smith more than they do, but Polter is a better and more exciting player imo - if he'd wanted to stay.

I thought it was one of the weirdest podcasts they've done, was as if they hadn't seen the team all season, some of the criticisms and longing for Polter to come back was plain odd.

Agree that some of the views were different from mine, but the Polter one was fair comment. He is not the same type of player as Smith, but is certainly more mobile, is younger (I think) and was still improving when he left us.

However, we sold him for more than we bought Smith for, Polter wanted to leave and Smith is perfectly adequate, so if they are on equivalent wages it was the right thing to do.

Money, money, money - we're not really like Chelscum, are we?

Polter had his moments but overall wasn't very good. He started last season well but quickly struggled. Smith scored the same number of goals as his last season and was a lot more effective. Polter was quicker but not sure he ever really used that pace very well

Either this or the one before, what did anyone think about the suggestion Barton had money on himself to be sent off in that Man City game?! Finney and the woman were adamant he had?! I thought that was absurd

Poll: What do you think about Ian 'olly' Holloway returning

I disagreed with just about everything although I totally accept its about opinions. It would be a very boring world if everyone agreed all the time.

Polter was all graft, decent finisher. He's wasn't a good footballer and prone to moments of extreme mal-coordination that you should never see at Champ level. Tripping over your own feet isn't really acceptable. Smith is better, just as slow as a bus.

Poll: Should JFH get the sack?

Polter does have a good strike rate at Mel Norfolt's beloved Union Berlin though - before and after his time with us. But I do think to call Matt Smith mediocre wasn't fair - solid player who puts in a shift and - if he had the mobility of a hummingbird he wouldn't be here.

Polter's a better player than Smith for me but him staying was never an option.

I also don't understand how you can pine for Karl Henry, currently bottom of the league with Bolton, when we've got Scowen playing as well as he is in that position.

Polter was probably the most entertaining thing in the JFH era but for me Smith just edges it in terms of football ability..
Havnt listened to the podcast yet.

Look after your broom...
