Sound Of Football Podcast 200 - Double century celebrations

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.

We say reunited but Terry is still in quarantine with #thepox - but like the trooper he is, the show goes on with him broadcasting LIVE from his plastic bubble.

Sound Of Football Podcast 198 - The pressure of local derbies

After a weekend where almost every other game in Europe seemed to be a hard fought local derby, Graham and Jan take time to ponder if these must win games are actually any good. Graham describes his experience at Sunday's Derby della Lanterna in Genoa and Jan offers to fight another northerner live on a future podcast.

Terry is unwell.

Sound Of Football Podcast 197 - Man United are good again

Have you heard? Man United aren't rubbish any more, and all it took was a few hundred million quid. Graham, Terry and Jan look at the prospects for the Gaalacticos (you can thank Twitter for that one). We also decide whether Scotland should stay or go by using soccer dice. Not giving away any spoilers but if you're Scottish you might want to do a big shop at Tesco's before Thursday.

If that's not enough, there's more Top Trumps too - with you the listeners in control. Mario Gomez carries your hopes in this round.

Sound of Football Podcast 196 - Blatter's video game

Sepp Blatter is about to be re-elected again and as part of his election campaign he's announced that a video referral system could be in trailed next year. We hate the idea of video refs and we've made our views on the matter abundantly clear. That's not going to stop us ranting about it for another half an hour.

We then ease our rage with another exciting round of Top Trumps.

Sound Of Football Podcast 195 - Too much, too young

As we watch the last knockings of this summer's Transfer Window, Graham, Terry and Jan look at the questionable wisdom of young talent joining big clubs. We discuss Wilf Zaha who recently returned on loan to Crystal Palace before the conversation inevitably turns towards Scott Sinclair.

And of course, more Top Trumps.

Sound of Football Podcast 194 - 50 Years of Match of the Day


Having had our own celebration last week, Graham, Terry and back from his hols Jan take a look at 50 years of Match of the Day - the BBC's Saturday night highlights package. Of course we get side-tracked on the way by such things as Doctor Who, Soccer Saturday and people who take photos with their iPads.

If all that wasn't enough, there's some Top Trumps too.

This week's podcast is dedicated to the memory of James Alexander Gordon, who died this week aged 78.
