    Hey Everyone just wanted to share my most recent podcast with former CCFC player David Busst. I liked filming this one. Double points to anyone who can guess where it was filmed!

    Can't hear it very well at work will watch later when I'm home.
    Is that in the media suite at the Ricoh?

    It's in the former away team changing rooms if I recall events correctly.

    It looks like the picture is trying to grab or tickle him!

    Always like your work Ol.

    Just as a suggestion - I would really have enjoyed hearing more about Bussty's recollections (good and bad) of the managers that he played under.

    For example, most of us from the outside viewed the Butcher/Howe era to be disastrous. What was the view from the inside? Was Phil Neal under rated? Where did Big Ron get it wrong?

    Also a few stories from Busst on the characters that he played with/various stories. If you look at other podcasts (for example, Under the Cosh) some of the stories are epic. I've met a few footballers socially who played in the 80s/90s and they have many stories to tell.

    Who was the best player he played against/with? Who was a troublemaker? Would be interesting to hear from the inside.....and directing the questions as such would make this even better.

    Not intended as criticism - keep up the good work. I can also see from this video that you've taken suggestions on board from previous videos - good stuff.

    That is exactly the stuff i would ideally love to do, David Meyler at the southam meeting was telling loads of stories and i thought he would be great for a podcast but he never replied. I want to move towards the stories of the game but most players don't have much time so it makes the podcast overall shorter than i would like.

    So that would be the “home” dressing now then - after Wasps commandeered the one we used in 2014?

    Yep, had a look around when the jsb party was on earlier this year, thought it looked a bit dated/tatty in there really.

    I'm sure this is a great interview but I gave up after 2 or 3 minutes. The volume was lousy! You really need to get this sorted. What are you using for a mike? Connected camera to sound or a separate device? I always found Tascam recorders brilliant. You can bring the levels up before recording. Anyway, that's just my two pence worth. Not a gripe. Just advice. ;)

    Had the privilege to meet him once. Smashing fella. And to think all the work He does done in the community he had to pay for his own ticket for himself and his and family for the Checkatrade Trophy final. Disgraceful

    Didn’t know that, that is disgraceful. The amount of positive work he’s done for the club’s image since he had to stop playing...

    He even signed a ball for me once (present from the misses) as we knew mutual friends and they got him to. Top bloke.

    Top bloke. Very good of him. Shame there is not more like him.

    I met him once - played in the football aid game at Highfield Road (a few years ago....), I was on his team and he was absolutely brilliant. Despite his career ending injury, best player on the pitch by miles (can't remember who the other two ex cov players were). After about half an hour, he sent the rest of the defense up, swept up the attacks singlehandedly and then launched all the attacks by either dribbling or superb passes!
    It underlined the difference between a professional who in the premier looked a decent but limited defender and the rest of us who thought we were great and in reality are a long way off! (I always remember this when I hear fans slating a player for a mistake!).
    Really nice bloke too.

    Completely agree with this Somerset. As a 16 year old, I played in midfield directly against a seasoned pro from a 3rd Division team. I could not get near enough to even kick him (and I was very fast) - speed of thought, movement and technical skill was totally mind blowing. It truly was a humbling and frankly scary experience to be so far out of my depth. Watching from the sidelines you just don't realise how good they are.

    I also played on the same team as Rik Holden shortly after he retired from the professional game - always a million steps ahead of me in terms of seeing the game - and not afraid in any way to let me know about it either!

    I played with an ex kidderminster harrier player (he was approaching 50) - his strength on the ball and powerful, accurate shooting (with very little back lift), just emphasised the difference in technique...and as you say, positioning and vision were in a different league to everyone else!
