1912 Exiles

#158: Tran-merde

Season 6, Ep. 30

The legendary Amber Arnie brings us a match report from Prenton Park on what proved a frustrating afternoon for County, in a classic 'game of two halves'. Did the windy conditions play a part? Arnie manages to squeeze in #FloodlightWatch, a chat with Ollie, and even establishes a catchphrase for himself. See if you can spot it...

All being well, Jamie will bring you a report from Barnet on Tuesday night, and Ed will be at the Grimsby game on Saturday. We'll also - hopefully - be recording our Christmas special this week, to appear in your feeds over the festive period.

Stay in touch with the pod via Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. Our thanks as always to Tinty & The Bucket Hats for letting us use Discoland as our theme. And our thanks to you for listening.

See you at the back post. 😉

  • 3. #183: A matter of Trust

    32:35
    In the first part of the pod, Jack brings you a newsround covering recent goings-on at 1912 Exiles Towers and at Rodney Parade. We also hear from The Other Three Amigos podcast about how they thought Nathan Wood got on during his recent loan spell at Cork City.Ed then takes the reins for an interview with the Newport County Supporters' Trust. Nominations are currently open for election to the new Trust Board, so we hear from Colin Everett and Shaun Johnson about their experiences over the last few years with the Trust, asking what skills they think are needed from potential candidates, and what might be the biggest challenges and opportunities for the new Board. Apologies for the fact that some of Shaun's audio is a bit sketchy due to wifi issues - but we're sure you'll agree that the content itself is a good listen. Anyone interested in putting their name forward for election should e-mail elections@ncafctrust.org for further information.As always, our sticker packs remain on sale; we also plug Rob Santwris' player fund for anyone who wants to contribute a few pennies to help Cocko get the best team possible for next season.As always, drop us a line via Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. Thanks to Tinty & The Bucket Hats for continuing to let us use Discoland as our theme tune.

    It's Ed on duty for our first summer special, looking at local football beyond our beloved Newport County, as we try to squeeze the last few drops of football out of the season whilst there are games to watch.

But in the meantime, you can follow Newport City men (Twitter / Facebook), Newport City women (Twitter / Facebook) and Newport United (Twitter / Facebook) to see what they get up to next.As always, drop us a line via Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.

    As County haul themselves over the line after a draining, frustrating but also at times surprising and memorable season, we check in for our final regular episode of 2023/24. We'll have a full end-of-season review and some summer specials in the weeks ahead - but for this one we've got Ian Street's match diary from Bradford (a), and then we chat with Amber Arnie and Nigel Dutson about what they learnt at last Thursday's meeting of the Newport County AFC Supporters' Trust.In passing we mention that our 1912 Exiles sticker packs remain on sale, should you want to send us a few quid. And we also invite you to give us the lamest reason you've used for leaving a County game early this season.

  • 51. #179: Feeble, weak and not ourselves

    26:37
    Six defeats on the bounce, so it's not the most uplifting episode. In the first half, Jack and Ed discuss the defeat to Tranmere and Cocko's post-match critique. In the second half, we throw it open to your voicenotes and reaction. Many thanks to everyone who sent in contributions.There's not a lot to cheer the County faithful at the moment - but our 1912 Exiles sticker packs are the best chance you've got. Only a fiver - go on, treat yourself.As always, you can get in touch via Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. Thanks as always to Tinty & The Bucket Hats for letting us use Discoland as our theme, and thanks to all of you for listening.
  • 50. #178: Jekyll & Jekyll

    42:04
    Two cheeks of the same arse, those two performances. Ian reports on the away defeat at Grimsby, lightening the gloom with some whimsical chat about floodlights and sea views. Ed then takes up the reins for a Tuesday night at home to Accrington Stanley in front of 3,000 die-hards, chatting along the way with yer Ollies, yer Stus, yer Chrises and yer Amber Arnies.Not many things to cheer the County faithful at the moment - but d'you know what would brighten your mood? Some 1912 Exiles stickers, that's what. Only a fiver - go on, treat yourself.As always, you can get in touch via Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.

  • 49. #177: April fools

    59:34
    Our first big panel discussion for a while - sadly sans Rhys, but Jack does an excellent job of corralling Ian, Ed & Jamie to make sense of recent events. It's a long one, this episode, so here's what to expect and when in the episode (rough timings, depends on adverts length!):1m10s: Intros3m18s: Jamie's match diary and Colchester analysis20m43s: Crawley analysis28m10s: "Beat the pod" quiz31m43s: Is the playoff dream over?35m32s: A word about the Morecambe game...47m46s: Your questions answered55m32s: Player of the pod, shoutouts and beefs.Ian will hopefully be back next weekend with a diary from the Grimsby game.

  • 48. #176: Blown away at Barrow

    23:24
    It's another Ian Street match diary, but sadly without quite the same level of joie de vivre as last weekend. The "fifth Beatle" of the pod, Ollie, also makes an appearance - but neither of them find much to warm the soul from a frustrating and cold afternoon in Barrow.The podcast, like the NHS, remains proudly free at the point of need. However, if you are able to chip in to support what we do then you can visit our ko-fi page; anyone setting up a regular £2pm donation will get a little thank you present in the post. And if you can't spare any money, that's fine - but please do recommend us to a friend and leave us a nice review somewhere.We've not had a full panel discussion for a while, and the plan is to do that next weekend to review the two Easter games and also pick up on other recent under-discussed moments - not least that 5-3 win against Morecambe! If you have any questions you'd like us to consider, get in touch via Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. Thanks as always to Tinty & The Bucket Hats for letting us use Discoland as our theme, and thanks to all of you for listening.

And if you can't, please at least leave a nice review via your podcatcher or give us a plug on social media.We'll be back next weekend with Ian's trip to Barrow, before Jamie decants himself in Colchester.
