THREE PEAS IN A POD (From FourFourTwo Magazine, Dec 2011 Issue)

 

Did you hear the one about the three guys from quite different backgrounds with a common love of football causing mayhem? Sadly, you don’t get to see them – you can only listen to them.

 

It’s not the latest joke doing the rounds, but a weekly reality as SuperSport host Jason Dasey, football author Neil Humphreys and ex-Real Madrid TV reporter Mayur Bhanji come together in a cozy studio for the Football Fever podcast, available at astro.com.my. Singapore fans can also enjoy the show at www.footballfeverpodcast.com and via iTunes.

 

Football Fever is the first soccer broadcast of its kind: an international soccer review and preview with an Asia-Pacific perspective, recorded at Backbeat Studios in Singapore.

 

The regulars invite footballing luminaries to join them each week to debate a range of tasty topics. Recent guests have included former England internationals Robbie Fowler and Tony Cottee and Singapore internationals Alex Duric, Daniel Bennett and R. Sasikumar.

 

“The discussion is lively, the wit is sharp and the opinions are well-rounded,” said Bhanji, who also produces the Football Asia show for the World Sport Group. “We like to think that we are the voices of reason – but also the voices of irreverent humour and lively debate.”

 

Bhanji is from Indian extraction but calls the English city of Leicester home and has also worked for BBC. Humphreys hails from London’s East End and is an iconic author of witty best-selling books on his adopted home of Singapore while Dasey was born and raised in Australia.

 

“The great thing is that we all bring something unique to the table,” said Bhanji, who’s an occasional guest on FourFourTwo Eurozone and Astro’s La Liga coverage. “Neil is the funny one of the group and cuts the chase of any subject with laugh out-loud jokes.”

 

Humphreys is the author of popular football novels like Match Fixer and Premier Leech and has frequented SuperSport shows, including Bola@Mamak and Football Overload.

 

Recent discussion points include Carlos Teves’s apparent refusal to come off the bench for Manchester United match and the eccentric tweets of QPR captain Joey Barton.

 

It’s all part of the fun on Football Fever. Instead of Three Men and a Baby, it’s Three Men and a Microphone (plus the odd visiting football legend) where almost anything goes.
