The Damned United (with Kyle from The M Word!)

The Damned United (with Kyle from The M Word!)

Technical difficulties aside, we have a delightful conversation about the beautiful game! And the beautiful Michael Sheen...

There's a minor mic problem this week that makes Macintosh sound like a magical wizard, but that won't stop the good vibes as we discuss The Damned United with special guest Kyle Turner from The M Word! Kyle is our guide to all things English football as we watch a so-so film of the amazing story of Brian Clough, the greatest manager England never had. More importantly, though, we cast an all-star project with Michael Sheen, Kenneth Branagh and Paul Rudd; Kyle awards some Oscars through sheer force of will; and we agree that Michael Sheen should just play everyone, all the time. It's a fun episode about football, innit?!
