Recorded across two continents, Glory Days of Gold brings 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.
Our guest this week is a man who may have only spent a short loan spell at East Fife, but who was taken to by the fans right away, Tam McManus.
We take a journey through Tam’s career that saw him play in Scotland, England, Ireland, and over the Atlantic for two spells in the US. The highs, the lows, the successes, and the regrets. There’s some great stories along the way, including playing with Gazza, against David Beckham, playing in altitude for the first time, and best of all, his warm feelings for his time at Bayview.
We delve into the current state of Scottish football and what needs to change, and find out why he doesn’t like John Collins, yet champions what he could bring to improving the game here. There’s some real honest talk in this and very enjoyable and refreshing it is too.
Lee and Michael also look at all the East Fife related news from the past week, try to fix Scottish football, find out if current East Fife gaffer Darren Young fancies a chocolate digestive, and Cork band the Sultans of Ping FC feature in this week’s Wavelength.
