Jetstream_podcast_logo

Furns (@newyboys) is joined by special guest and actual sports journalist John Davidson (@johnnyddavidson) and along with regular co-host David (@Jeterpool) to discuss all the action from the Jets first home win against Melbourne Victory.  We discuss the game, break down the player performances, and chat about the game stats, coaching and tactics. We then go through some off-field news regarding the ownership, what some ex-Jets are up to in Europe (including Franny Jeffers who apparently ISN’T dead), answer some correspondence and give our thoughts on the current situation involving the Wellington Phoenix. Then we go through the current injury list as we preview the upcoming game against Melbourne City this Friday before giving our thoughts on the other games in Rd 4.

Oh and we announce a competition to win a signed Jets away jersey thanks to Inspirations Paint (@InspPaint). But you will have to listen to find out how to enter!!!

The Jetstream Podcast Ep33 – 3 Points acruss tha dutch

Round 1 is in the bag and we thought it would be a great idea to record this edition at Four Kings in Wellington after a rare away win and two late nights of alcohol. What could go wrong?

Furns (@newyboys) is joined by Michael (@BodyNovo), Mitchy (@mitchy_novo) and Waspy with special guest Patrick (@patrick478) from the Yellow Fever to go over the action from the Jets win in Wellington. We also have Tamara, Lisa, Shaylee and Craig contributing quietly & occasionally in the background. We discuss what happened in the game against the Phoenix, the players, coach, tactics and referee performances. After a bit of trivia, we go through your correspondence and preview the upcoming game against Sydney FC this week.
