Oak Road Hatter launch analytics podcast hosted by Andy Burgess

Do you watch Monday Night Football or Match of the Day and wish that you were watching Luton Town being analysed and discussed in depth? Or do you watch the ITV highlights of the EFL, and get disappointed by the 30 seconds of analysis, followed by the 30 seconds of summary by pundits who know almost nothing about our team? Fortunately, now you can get the in-depth analysis of Monday Night Football focussed solely on Luton Town, as Oak Road Hatter have launched Put it in the Mixer, a second podcast that will focus entirely on the analytical side of Luton Town, hosted by former professional footballer, UEFA Licensed coach, and Luton Town fanatic Andy Burgess.

Andy Burgess has had various roles in the footballing world, including player, coach, assistant manager, manager, and scout. Andy played the majority of his career with Rushden & Diamonds, notching up 209 appearances and 23 goals between 1999-2006, during this time he was a key component in the Rushden & Diamonds team that won the Football Conference (currently National League) in 2001. So much so that Andy was highly regarded in the cult game Championship Manager 01/02, as a wonderkid, before that phrase was popularised by the later iterations which became Football Manager. In 2003 Andy won his second promotion with Rushden & Diamonds to the Second Division (currently League 1). This was followed by a move to Oxford United in 2005, before returning to Rushden & Diamonds in 2007 and then his dream move to Luton Town in 2009, signed by Mick Harford, but unfortunately left with Richard Money (which I'm sure Andy will talk about during the podcast). Moves followed to Mansfield, Chester, and Fleetwood in concurrence with Andy taking his coaching badges and managerial positions at the Sheffield Wednesday, Preston North End, and Leeds United women's teams. His last stint in management was taking charge of the phoenix club AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

During the Podcast Put it in the Mixer, Andy will walk through the goals, analyse players, and discuss the nitty-gritty of how Rob Edwards' team is performing on a weekly basis, occasionally joined by former Luton Town players and colleagues. With these former players, Andy will discuss what life is like in professional football away from the very top levels of the game, as well as chatting about the club we all love. Luton Town. This podcast will be available both in audio, wherever you get your podcasts from, as well as on the Oak Road Hatter YouTube channel, so you can follow the video analysis as he rewinds, draws arrows, highlights players, and tracks player runs. Subscribe, check it out and enjoy!
