So as Andrea Pirlo and his magnificent mane of hair saunters into the semi finals of Euro 2012 along with his tight-shirted Italian compatriots, it’s time for the OTP podcast to get the scalpels out and start dissecting another England failure at a major tournament. But rather than do this delicately and carefully, we’ve decided to throw caution to the wind and violently hack away at the big questions: Why isn’t football coming home? What does Danny Welbeck’s Dad do for a living? And was it Wayne Rooney on the pitch, or actually just a small turd? We’ll also be tickling your ear canals with a blow-by-blow account of Ben and Alex’s bizarre viewing of the game, live from a very patriotic corner of Hackney.
And if all that moaning wasn’t enough for you, we’ve also got a full roundup of all the quarter finals (even if they did turn out to be cagier than a high security exotic pet shop), and some smokin’ hot exclusive audio from the likes of David Seaman, Ray Parlour and Terry Venables.
