Far and away the best pundit we've had on iFollow. Felt to me like he was giving an ex-pro perspective instead of the bleeding obvious we usually have. Good job well done
Yep, he can be invited back please

he was good. Not as good as when I needed to leave a game at HT to go on a stag do (Chester?) and he stuck in a hat trick... but good

Nothing more to add, other than he was great and it was great to have iFollow back and working well, after all the games on Sky, which don't get shown on iFollow, even though I've paid for them.

My favourite memory; the Franchise, unbelieveably cold, under pressure the whole game, somehow got to the 87th minute without conceeding, Danny Foster chipped the ball forward, Marcus Bean headed it on and Charlie ran onto it brill and finished it even briller into the corner of the net by us, ran round infront of us, tremendous scenes.

He was a class act infront of goal, especially during the LTwo Championship year.

That was a great day out.

Loved him as a player and would like to see him get the commentary gig on a regular basis if possible.

Great to listen to him in the commentary last night, very knowledgeable.

Yes, I was at that game too. It was only last week that my toes thawed out....!

That MK Dons game was fantastic. Freezing cold and snow everywhere walking to the ground. Chesney had a blinder and then Charlie did that. Quite a good turnout that day considering the weather

Would of been an even better day out if you didn’t lead us on a three hour detour through the snow from the pub in Bletchley (I think) to the ground! :)

I think the rest of the group have to take the blame for letting someone with the username "Lostbee" who had been drinking since 8am be your tour guide! :)

To be fair I’m not sure any of us were big users of the GPG then and I seem to remember you confidently announcing “we don’t need a cab I know the way and a shortcut, it’s only ten minutes”

All added to a great day in the end

My second favourite memory; St Andrews for the LCup after the Everton penalty shootout; Karleigh gathers the ball down the left and floats a pin precise cross onto Charlie; Charlie made a quality, subtle cushioned header to his left to Sam Wood; who brilliantly volleyed home; just about my favourite goal of Scotty's era.

Very good. I especially liked him comparing us to the Red Arrows in the first half.

That was an astonishing smash and and grab based on stats. I wasn't even there and it stuck in my mind.
MK beat us something like 13-1 on shots, we won 0-1 with that very late goal...sometimes the lucky wins are the best ones. A bit like sometimes your favourite players played in crap teams! A real hero of that era. Pleased he is still playing at 39.

Charlie is a natural on the comms, plus he’s very good company and really enjoyed last night.
He is doing a bit of coaching and watching a lot of games.
He was a great addition to ifollow and reads the game very well.
He knew what Bradley was up to with Ivan, calling it early, by getting him into a physical battle and putting him off his game.
Mark is always weeks ahead planning to get an ex-pro where possible for each game and as Banana says Charlie will be back for a few more before the seasons out.

Any chance of getting Owusu on? I think he’d be a bit potty.

Lloydy presently lives in Oz but Mark has a few Griffin Park favourites hopefully lined up in the next few months.

And Big Tel. I had to mute the commentary to preserve his hero status!

Charlie was brilliant last night. More please... :sorted:
Yep, Big Tel was pretty awful. Seemed happy to admit that he didn't watch football much these days and is a rugby man 😬

Fabulous on the comms a-gain :love:
Great insight early doors of how the Stoke "proactive" half time substitutions of their yellow carded players as part of their dark arts strategy had significantly weakened their left side and handed us a pathway through which the momentum could be regained.
He alone is starting to make the iFollow subscription fee worthwhile :sorted:

Brentford used to upload the pre, HT and post match discussion to listen to as a podcast. Is that still the case at all?

Would like to hear the discussion parts given everyone seems to be rate him highly.

Really? I thought he was awful. The ‘insight’ from ex-players on iFollow makes Don Goodman sound passable.
