U's forwards Frank Nouble and Theo Robinson have been busy preparing their new Social Media Channel, ‘The Ball Don’t Lie’.
It airs for the first time on March 29th, and the duo went on BBC Essex on Tuesday evening to explain what they’re doing.
First, they spoke about staying at home, with Nouble saying: Us not to be playing football is obviously a really minor issue in terms of what’s going on, but as a footballer, it’s frustrating.”
“We’re nearly done in the season with not many games left and we want to complete it. At the moment though, we’re all at home like everyone else.”
On their new show, Theo explained: “We thought it would be unique, two players who are still playing – talking to other current players, and ex-players.”
“To give people who don’t know football all different insights, rather than watching it on the major channels where the player interviews seem quite formal.”
Frank continued: “It’s not just about football players, we’re trying to get loads of staff members on the show, physios, managers, coaches, kitmen.”
“We’re all human at the end of the day and we want people to see the other side of us from football.”
The show airs for the first time on Sunday, with Harry Pell making a guest appearance.
