Special Episode - 302 Edited Replay


On this special episode, and in light of the recent Rui Vitoria sacking, we thought it would be interesting to replay the episode we recorded back on November 28th, where everything was set for Vitoria to be sacked, but a magical light appeared to Luis Felipe Vieira in the middle of the night, and made him change his mind. The episode was recorded in anticipation of an official announcement in the coming morning, which would never come. For as ridiculous as we felt the following morning, listening back to it now, brings a certain element of redemption. Enjoy
