Episode Notes
This episode is the final regular episode, each episode following this are specials.

This episode is probably one of the most remembered due to the guest appearance from Jimmy Hill. At the time he had just parted ways with the BBC and he had come to filming after been at a Gentleman's Dinner drinking in the afternoon. The lads took this as an opportunity to take the piss out of Jimmy.

This episode marks the final appearances of the Guest Managers; Dani Behr and Des Lynam.

Frank and David had a bet during the series that whoever finished the lowest out of the two would have chocolate licked from their face by a dog. The dog was called Boo-Boo and he came on to the show to lick chocolate from David Baddiel's face as he finished below Frank Skinner in the Fantasy Football.

The Bolton Wanderers commentator Dave Higson appears at the end of the episode in a cameo role where he commentates on the final presentation where Angus Deayton's assistant manager Zoe Ball picks up the trophy.
