Another good listen- many thanks! 

any plans in place for the magical 100th episode- which my potentially incorrect poor Math suggests would be the Stoke game summary? 
 

 

Ooooh, maybe a commemorative shirt? @Shtanley?

Good listen as always.  Thought Oscar from Leeds was good (not our Oscar!!)

Sorry @Shtanley, I'm calling you out on Semenyo/Massengo hypocrisy! You can't support one underperforming starlet, then deride another. I thought you of all people, would join me in defending our gallic cherub through thick and thin.

Re Oscar's article, I think you summarised well that whilst we might not all agree with his sentiment, it was a brave piece, and also I'd say it got a really interesting debate going which is a good thing. Bravo Oscar.

Hi @Shtanley - you're doing a great job with OSIB and I'm really enjoying it.  Just one comment, meant in the most constructive spirit possible - personally I think 90 minute episodes are a bit too long.  For me that means I normally need to break up my listening into 2-3 separate occasions , which often means I struggle to get through an entire episode before the next one is out.  It strikes me that most podcasts are under an hour long.

I may be in a minority here but just wondered if reducing the length slightly might actually make the podcast even more popular.

Just to reiterate I really don't want to sound critical because I think it's great.

I usually listen to it in stages, very rarely in one go unless I'm on the coach to Bristol.

Of course, but it’s finding the time to listen to a whole 90 minutes each week. Often I don’t manage it. Personally I think the sweet spot is around an hour, but I appreciate it depends on the individual and their circumstances.

@Shtanley on the back of your comments in the previous podcast, I decided I’d listen to episode number one. My god it was shit. 

On the plus side, “Key Stage three talk” had me laughing out loud in the gym. I looked pretty special.

Thought they were pretty spot on. Both have shown promise but haven’t quite looked up to it, yet Semenyo rightfully got loaned out but Massengo is still here when we have Walsh and Morrell out on loan who look like they would offer far more. Agree with the comments that he is not too good to be loaned out, and it looks like he really needs it and would benefit from it like other loanees have. 

Really enjoying the podcast @Shtanley.

It's academy player bias.

If Massengo becomes a home-grown player next season like some reckon he will, then he'll suddenly be supported in a similarly overzealous manner like Semenyo was.

I'm the Massengo fanboy and I won't listen to sense.

As per the rules he will be a bonafide Club Developed player next season.

That should mean that Johnson suddenly stops playing him then!

@Shtanley

I disagree, sorry CR. 

Think 90 minutes is the perfect length to get through everything. Particularly this week it felt like there was loads to talk about and trying to fit it in any less time would have felt rushed.

@Davefevs is spot on - it's perfect listening for a 45 minute commute.

I agree with @ChippenhamRed but guess it depends on how and when people listen. I subscribe to quite a few podcasts so anything around an hour is usually standard.

The only long podcast I listen too is Undr The Cosh but that really needs to be edited down as far too much filler.

It's a good point. Lots of the BBC sport podcasts (such as the Steve Bunce boxing podcast) are fairly short, often between 25-45 minutes. I think between 45-60 minutes is probably about right.

I think 90 minutes is just right. As you say, sometimes there is a lot to talk about.

Seems the episode length issue splits opinion roughly down the middle.

The only thing I would add is that those happy with 90 minutes would still listen if it was an hour, whereas some might be put off altogether if they consider it too long. So if the aim is to grow the listenership, a less demanding amount of time might help. Just my thoughts.

I'd rather it was full of quality content than rushed and things cut out. I just listen to it in two or three parts if I can't fit it in in one go.

Fair enough - but that can cut both ways. Reducing the time can also ensure the quality stays high as only the best stuff makes the cut. That’s not a criticism of OSIB however.

How about 2 x 1 hour episodes per week? 1 pre and 1 post match?

2 hours a week would be even harder for me to keep up with personally. But I’m not here to tell anyone what to do, that’s just my view based on what works best for me.
