The Jetstream Podcast Ep31 – The Stubbins-less Edition

Its an even fuller house this edition as special guest Perth Glory supporter Matt joins David (@Jeterpool), Michael (@BodyNovo), Mitch (@jerkpv4) and Mitchy (@mitchy_novo) for an FFA Cup review episode of The Jetstream Podcast/Pubcast hosted by furns (@newyboys).

In the immediate aftermath of going out of the 2015 FFA Cup competition on penalties to Perth Glory, we sat down in the Sydney Junction Hotel to dissect the overall team and individual player performances, tactics and coaching, as well as the news and recent turmoil surrounding both clubs. We thank Matt for joining us and giving us the Perth perspective, and we hope you enjoy his contributions for this episode.
