Discrimination in football is an ugly truth. Whether or not your choose to accept or acknowledge its existence, it’s there, and it needs to be tackled head on. Inclusion in football, no matter the club, is something we’re extremely passionate about, and rather than spend time discussing the matter between ourselves, we decided to discuss the matter openly with some special guests. Branching out and using a professional recording studio to conduct the interviews, we spoke to the following people: Troy Townsend - Education and Development Manager for KickItOut. Louise Englefield - Director of Football Vs Homophobia. Anwar Uddin - Diversity and Campaigns Manager for the Football Supporters’ Federation. Simon Kuper - Financial Times Journalist and author. We asked no leading questions, and we advised our guests of no prior agendas. What you hear is exactly what we asked, unedited and honest. Thank you to each and every one of them for taking part.

World Cup - Group Stage Special

We couldn't help ourselves, so here's a special World Cup show, dissecting the group stages in a way only we know how. Jack and Raj will bookend the show as always, but the middle is where it becomes interesting: groups A-D are reviewed by Raj and Sam Tighe of the Bleacher Report, because Jack had to do some work, and groups E-H are discussed by Raj, Jack and Rob Brown of this parish, just to throw a little bit of variety in there.

Kissy Faces

Stoke away is assessed, and special attention is paid to Danny Rose, who had an interesting afternoon. We spoke about Game Of Thrones too, obviously. Sam Diss from Sabotage Times was our West Ham guest, and aside from his choice of club, he was an absolute delight. We talked about kebabs, spotting footballers in public, his passionate support of the BNP and there was some football thrown in at stages too. We closed the show looking over De Boer's recent kissy faces, discussing whether or not 'the Tottenham way' is a myth or not and pitching a treatment for a possible True Detective adult film starring Rusty Pohle and Reggie LeDong.

Game Of Bones

This week, we've found a pornographic parody of Game Of Thrones - imaginatively titled Game Of Bones - that naturally takes precedent. We discuss beating Fulham a little bit, too. Eriksen is good, Sandro is funny and Sherwood is still a laughing stock. We discuss who might come in to manage the side this summer, and take in to account recent developments at Manchester United. Because he's done the past two opposition interviews alone, Bains does a Lamela and doesn't show for this weeks, leaving Jack to discuss footballing giants Stoke City alone, so I think that makes us even.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/ruletheroost.

Anyone > Sherwood

This week, we welcome the victory against Sunderland with as much enthusiasm as we do the return of Game Of Thrones. We discuss Kane, Eriksen, Van Gaal and can't find a manager between us that we wouldn't want over Sherwood - not even Pardew. West Brom is previewed with an opposition guest, and for a change, it's just by Raj rather than Jack, but all is explained as we tear down the proverbial fourth wall. Much happier disposition around the show this week, it's a wonder what a half decent win, Arsenal capitulation and Sherwood sacking will do for moral, isn't it?Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/ruletheroost.

Liverpool discussed, odd Jack inspired unplanned book club mentioned and Luis Suarez not called a racist, so we'll do that here instead. Tunnel slouching, Vertonghen and Lloris leaving, Barça ban effects on Tottenham all looked at also. Sunderland soon, so we had Gareth from Wise Men Say back on, who given where his club are and how they're playing, was probably more downcast and depressed then we are, which is really fucking saying something. To end, a Levy voice is performed in famous YouTube personality fashion, and Bains questions whether or not the pod is even worth doing for the rest of this shambolic season.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/ruletheroost.

Liverpool fans are on again and Bains makes things awkward in record time. He literally has no regrets.Things, as they seem to have been more and more recently, get a bit depressing towards the end.

This episode of Rule The Roost is dedicated to the memory of Darren Alexander, who was the Joint-Chairman of the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust. Sadly, he passed away suddenly last week.

Jermaine Jenas: Girlfriend Stealer

Dnipro comeback, Cardiff win, Soldado goal - all summed up in the most Rule The Roost fashion possible. We then talked Chelsea with Joe and Freddie, who are both fans of that particular club. We talked about their players, manager and likelihood to win the league. We didn't question their morals as much though, sadly. Freddie gave us a painful story about Jermaine Jenas stealing his university girlfriend with 50" televisions and we mention a manager of a certain formerly Woolwich based club in the same sentence as Operation Yew Tree more times than is advisable. We had a breakdown about modern football to ourselves, discussed the Karl Pilkington iTunes review, talked about Jack's 30th birthday and the message he left on Raj's answerphone at 3am one morning pretending to be irate Northerner 'Barry' - althewhile forgetting about the miracle of caller ID.Long and enjoyable this (that's what she said).Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/ruletheroost.

Instead of talking about losing to Dnipro and Norwich properly, Jack sang a song and Raj had a meltdown about people running around in the woods on The Walking Dead. No, really. We regrouped and actually had a decent discussion about the games, if you were maybe worried, but we'd rather have found a corner to gently sob and rock in. Joined by two Cardiff fans before this weekends game, we thanked them for Gareth Bale and checked in on Steven Caulker before getting all Paxman about their red shirts and mental owner. Many thanks to Joel and Steve for putting up with us questioning their morals. All aboard the banter bus...apparently.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/ruletheroost. Hosted on Acast.

We didn’t record a Hull podcast, mainly because we didn’t want to. We’re not even sorry, to be honest. We’re back now though, brushing over two bad results in record time, literally doing our best not to delve in to the games past reading the scores out. Joined again by friends of the show and our favourite Everton fans going, Si and Bally from the NSNO Podcast are back on the line helping us discuss everything we possibly can, apart from the football. The usual tactical nonsense and higher-brow discussion wasn’t even attempted, as topics ranged from the sublime to the salacious. Expect in-jokes from the previous show and plenty of what ‘lads’ would call ‘banter’. Jack has a new tehTrunk video out, so watch it on YouTube.

With the Welsh conquered for a second time away this season, another away win is up for discussion in the shape of Swansea City.

Manchester City come to Tottenham next, and with that we welcomed back Rob from TypicalCity with open arms, this time accompanied by his mate and fellow blogger Alex, who evened up the numbers.

Then joined by Matt from Lost Boyos, this weekends game was firmly on the agenda. We talked Laudrup, Martinez and Rodgers, as well as players such as Bony, Caulker, Sigurdsson and Michu.

In our second episode in as many days, and quite possibly, although not entirely confirmed, last before the New Year, we responded to some Redknapp talk from feedback received regarding the Villas-Boas special. We also had a word on Sherwood and his first public interview since the announcement was made yesterday. There was also a short preview of West-Ham in the cup. Moving back to some form of Rule The Roost normality though, we spoke to Southampton fan and owner of the SaintsWeb, Steve Grant. Brushing off any and all jealousy toward their flourishing season and apparent stability, we asked about their youth system, Marcelo Bielsa inspired coach and how scared they were of us now given the circumstances.

Alongside this weeks guest and self-confessed Brazilophile Jack Lang of SnapKakaPop, Guardian, ESPN, When Saturday Comes (to name but a few) fame, show host Jack and site editor Raj were taught why Paulinho is going to be one of the best midfielders in the world, and why nobody in Brazil really knows who Huerelho Gomes is.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/ruletheroost.

"What Does AVB Smell Like?"

Episode two of the podcast and we're already branching out slightly. Rather than scouting the opposition, we're asking questions about the inner-workings of our own club to Roberto Kussabi the former Head Of Social Media at Tottenham. In discussion as always with host Jack and site editor Raj, we talked about the players as people, smelling AVB, working for the club you love and much more besides.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/ruletheroost.
