IT has been a successful 2022 on the whole for Wanderers – and this week we’re looking back on all the highs and lows in our special end-of-year review.

Marc Iles and Henry Hewitt analyse all the game, month by month, and chart the progress of Ian Evatt’s side as they finished ninth in League One last season, then launched their promotion chase this time around.

The lads also give each and every player who has featured this season a mark out of 10 in our half term report. And rumour has it, Henry has dished out a 10.

We’d like to thank everyone who has listened to the podcast in 2022, and hope you can stay with us next year where there is plenty more in store.

From everyone at The Buff (and by that, we mean Marc and Henry) we hope you have a healthy and happy New Year!


This season we’ll be running a special Fantasy Football League for listeners of The Buff – and will be dishing out monthly prizes, plus recruiting some special guests to play against from the world of Wanderers.
