Welcome to the third edition of Lifting The Lid, here on the Official Emirates FA Cup podcast.

The show, hosted by Tubes and Steve Sidwell, that explores the unique experience of taking part in the world’s oldest and best club competition. It’s a huge episode this week, a real giant of the game, in more ways than one. It’s the big man. We’ve got Peter Crouch! Crouchy is a hilarious and delightful man, as well a true legend of the game. He’s played for England, in a Champions League final, and has an FA Cup winners medal to his name to boot.

In this episode we discuss pressure, and Crouchy knows a thing or two about pressure having played in some of the biggest derbies around - Merseyside, South Coast, North London, Second City - and that’s without even mentioning Liverpool v Man U. But also the pressure of being the big man, and not looking like any other footballers out there. Subscribe now to make sure you don't miss any episodes of Lifting the Lid on The Official Emirates FA Cup Podcast.

The podcast is hosted by Tubes and Steve Sidwell and produced by Harold McShiel and Jake Cunningham. The Executive Producers are Charlotte Males and Craig Barrett, the editing is by Will Lockwood and Jamie Maisner and the show’s artwork is from Ellis Oseman.
