Sound Of Football Podcast 205 - The trouble with FIFA

FIFA's in a terrible state - according to western media. Corrupt, greedy and unable to keep their own house in order. That must make them unfit for purpose, right? Jan, Graham and Terry discuss the fallout from the as yet unpublished Garcia investgation and Judge Eckert's subsequent assessment of it. This week's pod is shorter on answers than it is on questions but then that's FIFA for you.

There's also some Top Trumps.

Don't forget to get behind our nomination in the FSF Awards - you have until midday Monday 24 November (UK time) to get your vote in.

Sound Of Football Podcast 204 - Vote for us!

This week's podcast starts in celebratory mood as Terry, Jan and Graham take a moment to glow with pride at being short-listed for the prestigious Football Supporters' Federation's Best Podcast/Radio show 2014.

The award itself will be based on a straight vote and we're up against some extremely big hitters so winning the thing is very unlikely for a small independent venture like ours. However any votes for us are greatly appreciated - you can do it here: fsf.org.uk/awards.

We're not resting on our laurels though and we get on with this week's discussion which is all about this weekend's Euro qualifiers.

Sound Of Football Podcast 203 - Weakened Teams

Brendan Rodgers seems to be an easy target at the moment but maybe he brings it on himself. This week he decided to start with a slightly less world class XI away to a rampant Real Madrid. This week Graham, Terry and Jan discuss the wisdom of weakened selections and how fair it is on fans, the competition, the broadcasters and those all important sponsors.

There's also the rarity that is Jan's selection for this round of Top Trumps. Can he strike back after weeks of the "Terry Tyranny".

Sound Of Football Podcast 201 - Right hammerings

It's never fun when your team is on the wrong end of a pasting - especially when your mates keep constantly reminding you of it. The wounds of the weekend's 8(EIGHT) - 0 drubbing at the hands of Southampton are still painfully fresh to Sunderland supporter Jan, so what better time is there to discuss cricket score defeats. Graham and Terry are on hand to help him through this troubling period.

There's also a round of Top Trumps to cheer him up. Though considering how he's fared recently, that may not be such a good thing.

Graham, Jan and the fully fit again Terry get together to celebrate a milestone number for the podcast. We take the opportunity to look ahead to imagine the world when we hit 300 episodes (hopefully somehwere around 2017).

As a bonus, in a special segment of this extended episode, original SoF host Chris Oakley returns with some of his memories of the early days of the pod. Of course, there's some Top Trumps at the end too.
