STOP the clocks, cut off the telephone, it is time for a bit of reflection on The Buff as we look back at a whole decade spent outside the Premier League.

Marc and Henry look back at that fateful day at Stoke City and the myriad of problems that led to it for Owen Coyle’s side.

But this isn’t just a pity party… There’s plenty to discuss about the modern-day Wanderers too and we look at the exciting signing of Australian defender Jack Iredale, which kicks off Ian Evatt’s summer of recruitment.

We revel in Dapo Afolayan’s plans for the Championship and beyond, wonder if Jon Dadi Bodvarsson uses his Clubcard vouchers and decide whether we want Wycombe or Sunderland to go up in the play-offs.

There’s a battle for the soapbox on Alright or Barry Knight and we read out some of the best emails of the week, including one listener’s post-Premier League XI. Don’t worry Wheats… You’re in it.

Remember, it isn't just a podcast, it's The Buff Podcast. And we're here every Friday.
