Sound Of Football Podcast 209 - Managerial Merry-go-round 2015

Though the Transfer Window has been open for almost two weeks, it's managerial changes that dominate discussions in the Premier League at the moment. This week Terry reveals his thoughts on Alan Pardew's appointment at Crystal Palace and Tony Pulis going to West Brom. Jan and Graham are on hand and look at where the Merry-go-round will stop next.

Jan may be a little distracted though as he's down to his last card in Sound of Football Top Trumps. You, the listeners have control of the game - will Robin van Persie knock him out of the competition?

Sound Of Football Podcast 208 - Steven Gerrard RIP* (*Reside in Pasadena)

Happy New Year everyone. We start the year with our reaction to the news of Steven Gerrard's upcoming summertime departure from Anfield. It looks like he'll be joining his long time England midfield partner Frank Lampard in MLS but about as far away as you can get from New York, in LA. Join Graham, Terry and Jan as we look back at their differing careers and wonder who's right - the people who think they're two of the greatest players we've ever had, or those who think they're shockingly over-rated.

Top Trumps returns with you the listener in the driving seat. Jan's tugging at his collar with just two cards keeping him in the contest.

Sound Of Football Podcast 207 - 2014 Advent Calendar

Like the Queen's Speech and Brussels Sprouts, the Sound of Football Advent Calendar has become part of the tradition of Christmas. Jan's roasting some chestnuts on an open fire, Graham's hanging the stockings while Terry is decking the hall for some reason.

As ever, 24 doors await to be opened. Who will be behind them this year?

And what's that behind the satsumas? Why it's an extra treat of some Top Trumps.

Merry Christmas from everyone at the Sound of Football Podcast.

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 Jan, Graham and Terry discuss the fallout from the as yet unpublished Garcia investgation and Judge Eckert's subsequent assessment of it.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.
