Even worse are the entitled youtubers Rory Jennings and the utd gimp, whose name escapes me.

Bunch of smirking morons. How do they get a vehicle to voice their irrelevant opinions.

In the age of podcasts I don't understand why anyone listens to it.

It's like social media, it can be poison if you allow it but I don't have to let these dumb opinions pollute my time so I mute and don't follow people I want wanna hear.

I listen to a selection of tottenham podcasts and occasionally the athletic football one and the James Richardson European one and that's my football listening intake. No trolls, no ex players talking nonsense, no adverts for Selco when I'm not even allowed to use a drill in my house.

Every morning since the season ended is the breakfast show talking about Harry Kane.

Get into the car in the evening, they're talking about Harry Kane.

It's all Gooners, wall to wall, apart from Goldstein and Cundy, and every single one is repeating the same lines, about lack of ambition, about how he needs to leave, how Levy is holding him hostage. They've even managed to drag Gabby Abonglahor (sp) into it as well now, with the constant grilling from Laura Woods - another Woolwich fan.

What a sad fucking state of affairs that it's this random, low-expectation-having ex-Woolwich players bleating on about the same topic, day after day after day after day now.

Jermaine pennant :D :D :D it's a circle jerk of their fans now but anything he says is null and void. They sell him up like he won the world cup or something suddenly - few weeks ago nobody cared, he was another ex-Gooner who drive drunk, like a **** and nothing else. Embarrassing, man.
Does your radio only get talksport then?

The quality of Talksport is very uneven. Some presenters are dreadful, while others are so-so, with a few interesting ones that assume radio listeners are intelligent enough to work out when they're being fed crude propaganda on behalf of one club or another that the presenters once played for or support or act as agents for.

All the media platforms, whether TV, radio or text-based, range from third-rate rubbish through to thoughtful analysis. It's what make the better-quality podcasts some respite from the rubbishy stuff and instead often witty and worthwhile.

I worked out that it's not cars, it's people. Same with cyclists - you remove the people part of it and they don't bother me at all. Add a person and it all fucks up sadly.

Bit like Vikings - they were fine, then add a dash of French = Normans. Completely fucked it.

Just come up on my timeline that Simon Jordan has announced on TalkSport that he has cancer and has just had surgery that saved his life.

I've not listened to Talksport for a while, at least until Dean Saunders stops kipping on the couch there and turning up on every single program.

Never used to like him in his Palace days but the more I hear of him on TS (via clips on twitter) the more respect I have for his outlook and how he sees the game. Cancer is an evil evil thing

He's well worth a listen and more power to him for going public and urging us all to take it seriously.

Fair play to Jordan, he's gone full bore into Bayern that they need to pay up or shut up.

and that is basically it. They are only favourites to sign him right now because of the fact that we're refusing to sell to a PL club. A narrow window of opportunity, before they miss the boat now, they will be way down the queue if he's available to walk on a free. A bit like getting into a ticketing website with a one time 30 mins offer to buy your tickets or get thrown out snooze and you lose territory.
So yes, they either pay up or they shut up...

What age should fellas start getting a regular prostate check? I think I read at 50, but wouldn't want to be missing out on the fun if I'm eligible ?

Some cases emerge in 30's / 40's but instances start to pick up more after 50's. However, this could be due to it being something that isn't checked that often at younger age groups. If we take the Jordan case as an example he paid for a specific test due to a friend getting a positive sign. He showed no symptoms yet they still found something which is incredible as they could treat it before it turned nasty but most people don't / can't just get blood tests done on a whim.

As an example, I'm 42 and just been contacted to have an NHS health check at my local GP but when I queried it they said it's just a blood pressure check and a few questions around smoking / drinking habits so they won't be taking any bloods

If you're at the doctor's with no undercrackers on and the doc asks you to turn on your side and bring your knees up towards your chest, you've reached the right age.

Yeah I turned 45 a few months ago so went for the normal MOT with bloods, weight, etc but no mention of a finger up the bum.

Jordan said on talksport that 1 in 8 white men, and 1 in 4 black men die when they get prostate cancer. He said if your mid 30s it’s worth asking your doctor for a blood test. I forget the name of it. PSA maybe?

Anyway. It’s worth asking the doc if you’re worried/ curious.
