  • 30. "I Stand Corrected"

    01:24:52
    We thought we were back! But it turns out we are kind of…not. We discuss the bizarrely soporific spectacle that was the Wolves game with a minimum of Ange angst - we’re zealots after all. Alas, no respite from Spurs Women either, as their lacklustre performance against Villa led to an infuriatingly identical result. The solution? Patience, and lots of lovely culture picks to get us through a football-free fortnight. We’ll be back (again)! Follow us on Twitter: @_HometownGloryThe team on Twitter: Ash, Billie, Charlie, Rosa, Sam and Tom... And we're on Instagram: @_hometownglorygram

  • 29. “Just Might Be OK”

    01:04:28
    Players, last-minute winners and VIBES are back! Our returning captain gave us just the lift we all needed in the win over an annoyingly good Brighton. Was it a well-managed game or a bit of luck and do we care? Elsewhere, the women’s FA Cup draw took place IN HELL because for the 50th time this season, we have to play Manchester City. We also make time to push our personal agendas AND rate Usher’s Super Bowl Halftime Show.Follow us on Twitter: @_HometownGloryThe team on Twitter: Ash, Billie, Charlie, Rosa, Sam and Tom...

  • 28. “That’s What Happens”

    01:07:12
    Another day, another loss to Man City Women. But this time we did it without conceding a single goal to Bunny Shaw! We move. Incrementally, but we move. We also look back at the frustrating Merseyside draws for both teams and ask: are we taking the one club mentality too far? We wonder if Ange will agree to have someone protect Vic at corners this weekend against Brighton, and are mindful of not counting our chickens against the women’s FA Cup opponents Charlton. Plus! Culture: Tracy Chapman is the 🐐 and does Lauren love musicals now? Follow us on Twitter: @_HometownGloryThe team on Twitter: Ash, Billie, Charlie, Rosa, Sam and Tom...

  • 27. “Got My Ticket For The Darts”

    54:35
    Billie, Rosa and Tom discuss the 3-2 against Brentford that featured some excellent performances, some calamitous ones (sometimes from the same player), a bit of pantomime villain nonsense, a darts subplot and a truly horrible last five minutes. Again we ask: why does everyone have weird beef with Tottenham? We look ahead to Everton, Rosa and Tom wax lyrical about the genius of Barbara Kingsolver, and Billie keeps up with the Oscars race. Bonus! LIVE reactions to Tottenham’s latest transfer coup. Follow us on Twitter: @_HometownGloryThe team on Twitter: Ash, Billie, Charlie, Rosa, Sam and Tom...

  • 26. “Big Blue”

    01:19:24
    Football’s strangest hoodoo finally came to an end last week as Man City knocked us out of the FA Cup thanks to a highly debatable/perfectly reasonable goal. Lauren, Rosa and Sam mourn the loss of our trophy, and pick themselves up to go again… by reviewing another loss to Man City, this time for the women. We preview Brentford, Spurs Women's next league game against Liverpool, and the Conti Cup quarter final draw against… Manchester City. Brutally played, football gods (but thank you for returning James Daniel Maddison to us). Follow us on Twitter: @_HometownGloryThe team on Twitter: Ash, Billie, Charlie, Rosa, Sam and Tom...

  • 25. “Look Out”

    58:52
    Rosa and Lauren reflect on Spurs Women’s chaotic win at West Ham in the eye of Storm Isha, and make our latest sales pitch to Grace Clinton after another dazzling performance. There are flowers for Celin Bizet, Jess Naz and Eveliina Summanen (but only in midfield, Robert!), concerns about defence with a game against the inevitable Bunny Shaw looming, and the Amy Turner Agenda gets a boost. We preview the men’s cup game against City — can we do it without Sonny? — and dish out our latest culture picks. Follow us on Twitter: @_HometownGloryThe team on Twitter: Ash, Billie, Charlie, Rosa, Sam and Tom...

  • 24. “We’re Happening”

    01:08:22
    Two big games to review for Billie, Charlie, Rosa, Sam, Tom and special guest Lauren: the spirited 2-2 draw at Old Trafford and Spurs Women’s chaotic comeback Cup win. We go through our winners and losers from Manchester, Sam gives us some photography tips, and Lauren gives us the rundown on that late, late victory over Sheffield United. Plus, naturally, our very excellent Culture picks. Follow us on Twitter: @_HometownGloryThe team on Twitter: Ash, Billie, Charlie, Rosa, Sam and Tom... And we're on Instagram: @_hometownglorygram
