Welcome to the second episode of your new favourite podcast – Glory Days of Gold.
Recorded across two continents, Glory Days of Gold will bring you a regular dose of East Fife FC and Scottish football chat, with a splattering of interesting interviews and fun segments thrown in along the way.
This week we bring you our first interview, as we sit down for an in-depth chat with a man who has had a 20 year career in Scottish football and four spells at East Fife – Paul McManus. Paul looks back at the highs and lows of his career, his moves, his goals, his controversies, tells us the best players he’s played with and against, and reveals exactly how he got his nickname of Shagger!
Plus we chat some more about league reconstruction, the new five sub rule, what football might look like when it returns to our screens, find out if Scottish international Johnny Russell fancies a chocolate digestive, and Irish band The Hitchers feature in this week’s Wavelength with a song about an all-time Scottish great.
