Graham and Terry welcome Andrew Gibney of the Gibfootballshow. The show starts of with a withering critique of the PFA Player Of The Season Award and the over-importance individual awards in a team environment and ends with the Welsh UEFA Co-oefficient.

You can listen to the podcast here or if you right-click on that link, you can download the MP3.

Alternatively, you can subscribe via your reader of choice or via ouriTunes feed.
