Sound Of Football Podcast 224 - Women's World Cup 2015

With the start of the final round of fixtures in the Group stage we thought it was high time to review the tournament so far and what we think of the game as a whole. Graham, Terry and Jan approach the subject with an admittedly limited amount of knowledge but that hasn't stopped them enjoying what they've seen so far.

Also, in a rare piece of investigative journalism, we take a closer look at just what the likes of Abby Wambach, Tim Howard, Kobe Bryant and Tom Hanks all have against the use of artificial turf at this World Cup.

If that's not all, there is also a truly stunning round of Sound of Football Top Trumps. Prepare for shocks and surprises in this Summer Special Sound of Football.

Sound Of Football Podcast 222 - Flipflop football

Is it bad form for teams to take their feet off the gas once their season is effectively over, or have they earned the right to don their flip-flops (obviously you should never put your foot on the gas while wearing flip flops - that would be dangerous).

Join Terry, Jan and Graham as they discuss the merits and pitfalls of taking it easy. They also take time to discuss the peculiar goings on at Anfield for the big farewell to Stevie G.

Sound Of Football Podcast 221 - Character and Professionalism

Is there a place for characters in the modern game? Do we need anything more from players beyond exceptional skill and determination to succeed? Terry, Graham and Jan put their heads together to explore the relatively recent phenomenon of football media management - is it a good thing for the game as a whole?

Sound Of Football Podcast 220 - Disappointment

All of us know you should never rely on football to entertain you - it will always let you down. After we urged you to follow the Championship because it was going down to the wire, it's now sewn up with a full weekend of fixtures still to play.

We all know it but somehow it always seems to surprise us just how disappointing it can be, and yet still we come back for more and still Graham, Terry and Jan keep talking about it. Also this week you'll find out why Chelsea aren't boring and where next for Jurgen Klopp (spoiler: It's not Newcastle)

Sound Of Football Podcast 219 - Uppers and Downers

With the media hysterical about party balloons filled with a mild anaesthetic, we thought we'd have a discussion about who's going up to and who's coming down from the Premier League. In time honoured tradition, we don't offer predictions, just things we wouldn't be surprised about if they happened.

Sound Of Football Podcast 218 - Playing away from home

It's often said that it's good to try new things but does that apply to football clubs? This week Graham, Terry and Jan take a nostalgic look back at their experiences of dabbling with groundhopping to watch clubs that weren't their own. Our wander down memory lane covers subjects as diverse as the German sausages at Craven Cottage to the peculiar habits of the home crowd on the terraces at Ayresome Park.

And of course, there's a bit of Top Trumps too.
