    They have a couple of ringers by the looks of it.

    I guess Davies will be on the bench on Friday if he is playing today

    Would be really annoying if Davies or hyam got injured playing in these under 23 games .... I know it’s decent to maintain fitness

    Think Walters will give them a good test.

    On the Sky Blues Phone in on CWR, Nick from Birmingham said Zain Westbrook is a really good player from what he's seen...which can't be much as he doesn't go to any of our games any more, yet still rings up every Monday, Friday and Saturday to give his opinion based on Eakin's 'fabulous' commentary.

    Based on that alone - I'm willing to bet Westbrook is horseshit!!

    N.B. If every CWR want a revampl, they should tell Eakin and Foster to pack their bags and have Nick from Birmingham's number blocked.

    They should just ban brummies from ringing in.

    You would think so.

    Remember an old woman phoning up after a game because her great uncle played for us about 35 years ago and had no idea about anything.

    It's up there with people who let their 5 year old kid's phone up who also have no idea about anything. It's all well and good if the kid's have been to the game and can make a couple of points or understand how to have a conversation, don't expect high level punditry but it's not CITV.

    The kids should be interviewed by Foster that would stop them ever trying to call again

    If you were a regular listener you'd realise that we're in League 2 because we're playing about 5 different teams at the same time.

    Local radio in a nutshell, that! If the adverts promoting their other shows are anything to go by and my memories of WM in the 90's accurate, their everyday listeners are a bit...special?

    That post match interview he did with Robins was painful to listen to, possibly the worst one yet? Robins sounds like he utterly loathes him and think's he's an incompetent idiot.

    "Willis came off injured (wincing sound), bit of a worry?"
    "What have you got that look on your face for?"

    "How's Jordan's confidence after that?"
    "Well you're interviewing him in a minute aren't you, you can ask him yourself? But I would imagine that it won't have done him any harm...."

    And there were a few others that were equally uncomfortable. Thing is, has anyone ever told Robins that Foster had a stroke a year or two ago? I know he was rubbish at his job then too, but he seems to struggle even more now-maybe Robins would go a little bit easier on him if he knew that?!

    Also whilst we're on CWR, is anyone on here going to admit to ringing in with the fake traffic reports from Leamington Spa every Saturday night just before 6? My favourite one was a few weeks ago, claiming that Grove Street was gridlocked, which is where I live. It's a quiet residential road. I popped outside to have a look and there was literally no traffic at all. This happens every week at the same time, with a quiet road in Leamington, and CWR still haven't registered that it's a wind up!

    Hahahahha you’re spot on! Poor old Lee Burge having to defend corners against Crewe, Crawley, Cardiff and Cambridge at the same time!

    I think CWR have registered a wind up and their wind up is indeed Mr Foster

    Some of the observations on here lately about CWR’s commentary is absolutely spot on, Eakin gets players names wrong 60% of the time, so you could end up thinking Kelly has had a dominant game when for example in fact it’s clive calling Bayliss ‘Kelly’.
    Does nobody ever point out to them in the office that they’re describing a completely different game to what they’re seeing on Ifollow or whatever the media use?

    They won’t!!! When I used to work in Northampton, @Earlsdon_Skyblue1 would regularly text into BBC Radio Northampton breakfast show ironically hosted by Stuart Linnel, and tell them that their were major delays on the A34 and A45 because of ludicrous reasons, like a plank of wood in the road!!! My Seat Sat Nav got its traffic updates from the radio so it was forever re-directing me around non existent traffic jams!! I swear he brought Northampton and Daventry to a halt on a weekly basis!!

    The kids should do the interview-let’s face it, they would do a better job.

    Maybe they should interview the naughty corner and see who produces the most incoherent babble.

    Just wished he would give his throat a good clear out before going on air. Sounds like he has a throat full of flem on the radio.

    That with linnell eating sweets whilst on air. Disgusting.

    Someone once called Linnell out about rattling boiled sweets about his on air and he got very aggressive about it, saying how dare he accuse him of being unprofessional! Glad I’m not the only one that can hear him rattling away

    That’s not boiled sweets it’s his tiny brain knocking about in there when he comes up with one of his crazy statements about how good lee burge is.

    Listening to eakin today on the cricket and he was much better far more knowledgeable than the football

    Yeah I can’t quite remember what but you’re right he did! As much as Linnel denies it, he definitely has an account on here. Hi Stuart!
