Happy Birthday Jermaine...
...because we might have forgotten to say it last week. Matt and Jermaine are joined by legendary golfer Colin Montgomerie, who describes how a family move to Yorkshire saw him hooked by the Whites during the Revie era. Colin gives his take on Bielsa’s men and the season so far, whilst the guys break down the West Ham defeat. Follow us on Twitter - @doingaleedspod

Complete Psychopathic Behaviour
Christmas gets ever nearer and there’s the faint, socially-distanced sound of rustling as Jermaine commits the (should be imprisonable) sin of eating an entire advent calendar during the record (don’t tell his kids). He and Matt digest the 3-1 loss to Chelsea and look ahead to the forthcoming clash with West Ham, as well as reflecting on the return of real, actual fans to stadiums.

Imagine learning English from you Becks
Matt and Jermaine have been set a big challenge this week - pick an all-time Leeds 5-a-side team - and there’s only one question on everyone’s lips - will Jermaine try to pick himself? Plus, they reflect over a great win at Everton, and look ahead to the Chelsea match. Give us a follow on Twitter - we’re @doingaleedspod.

The Bells Are Ringing Out For Nige Martyn
This week Matt and Jermaine are joined by arguably Leeds United’s greatest ever goalkeeper, Nigel Martyn. Indisputably one of the nicest men in football, Nigel talks about his time at Elland Road - being signed by Howard Wilkinson, adapting to George Graham’s style, the heady days of David O’Leary’s reign and how the arrival of Terry Venables signalled the end of his time at the club. It’s a fascinating interview with a stopper who stands fifth in the all-time Premier League clean sheets standings. Oh and Matt asks him about campanology (who knows).

There's only one Simon Grayson
The international break = dull dull dull. However, Jermaine’s thrown open his contacts book and nabbed an interview with one of the most successful Leeds managers in recent history, Simon Grayson. The guys talk to Simon about his playing days, leading the Whites to promotion from League One and the memorable FA Cup win over Manchester United (plus his own take on THAT winning goal by a certain striker). Simon also gives us his damning assessment of managing Jermaine, and the guys try to get to the lowdown on life working under Ken Bates. Give us a follow on @DoingALeedsPod and keep those reviews coming!

There’s a dour dose of déjà vu this week as Leeds succumbed to their second successive 4-1 defeat, this time at the hands of Crystal Palace. Jermaine and Matt discuss the key talking points, not least Pat Bamford’s disallowed goal - hands down (outstretched?) the most ridiculous decision made in the history of civilisation - as well as breaking down the other factors that contributed to the defeat. And the guys have news of next week’s special guest... Give us a follow @doingaleedspod

A Young Craig David
Serial world champion, multiple Olympic medals, pubs named after him and an all round Leeds legend - Matt and Jermaine are joined by Jonny Brownlee to discuss reaching the pinnacle of his sport and his love for Leeds United. The guys also reflect on the 4-1 humbling at the hands of Leicester City, a timely reminder of the challenge Marcelo Bielsa’s men face this season. Meanwhile, Matt’s recording from Washington DC where he’s set up camp for the US election, so alongside great guests and groundbreaking chat we bring you a US Election Special...sort of. Give us a follow on Twitter at @doingaleedspod and tell all your mates.

George Clooney’s Got A Pig
Welcome to the official Patrick Bamford fan club. Matt and Jermaine are still revelling in the hugely impressive win over Villa, and reflect on a performance that once again demonstrated to the rest of the league what Leeds are all about. Plus they look ahead to Monday’s game against Leicester, and there’s far too much chat about pigs and pumpkins.

Bringing Home The Mushrooms
We join a sombre Matt and Jermaine in the immediate wake of Leeds’ 1-0 defeat at home to Wolves. A certain ex-Villa striker has got under Matt’s skin with his post-game comments, and that’s not the only thing to get on his wick. The guys reflect on what the result means at this early stage of the season, and look ahead to the upcoming match at Villa Park. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @DoingALeedsPod and if you’re enjoying the podcast give us a review!

The Chief Is Here!
Do we have a special guest for you! Matt and Jermaine are honoured to be joined by Leeds United royalty, The Chief himself, Lucas Radebe, who talks about his childhood in South Africa, moving to Leeds and getting used to tasteless food, and his friendship with the late Nelson Mandela, as well as much, much more.

Bielsa The Boxer
Jermaine and Matt reflect on a busy transfer window run in for Leeds, with the arrival of Raphinha and the late collapse of Michael Cuisance’s move. Plus, the guys give their thoughts on an impressive performance against Pep Guardiola’s Man City. And boy do we have a great guest lined up for next week - there’ll be no game to discuss as we head into the international break, but fear not, we’ve absolutely pulled out all the stops…have a listen to find out who… And we’ll be answering some of your questions next week too - get in touch @doingaleedspod on Twitter and ask us anything (within reason!)

BONUS! Dom Matteo in full
Listen to Matt and Jermaine’s full chat with bona fide Leeds United legend Dominic Matteo, who discusses his battle with cancer, his time at Elland Road, boozy trips with Razor Ruddock and Jason McAteer, and the Ridsdale era. Spoiler alert – Jermaine had to do the interview sat in his car outside his brother-in-law’s whilst Dominic’s recording cut out, so audio quality gets a B-minus towards the end.

Dom Matteo scored a f**king great goal
Matt and Jermaine welcome their first guest – none other than Leeds United legend Dominic Matteo, who discusses scoring THAT goal against AC Milan, his health recovery and much more. Plus, the guys discuss a huge three points against Sheffield United, the upcoming clash with Man City and Jermaine’s good deed of the week.
