Sound Of Football Podcast 17 - (Not) The World Cup Draw

Join us as we bring you a special edition of the Sound Of Football Podcast. This week we performed a real time mock-up of the World Cup Draw according to how we think FIFA will organise it.

Graham has put a lot of thought into how he thinks FIFA will seed the teams and we believe our preview draw will offer an exciting glimpse into what to expect on Friday when the real draw happens.

We came up with some fascinating results so why not find out who your country could be facing next summer in the World Cup. The 33rd team has not been included.

(Not) The 2010 World Cup Draw

As all you football connoisseurs will know, Friday 4th December 2009 is undoubtedly the most important day in this year's calendar, for that is the day when FIFA make their draw for the 2010 World Cup Finals.

The *second* most important day, however, is Monday 30th November 2009, for that is the day when The Sound of Football podcast does its own draw for the 2010 World Cup.

Yes, this week's show will be entirely devoted to the drawing out of teams into each of their eight groups as they might appear on Friday evening in Cape Town. We'll be conducting our draw live (well, as live as a pre-recorded podcast can be) and will use all the appropriate seeding groups that we think Sepp Blatter and chums will be using on the big night.

This is a once in a lifetime chance to see who England could face in the first round in South Africa (once in a lifetime if your life expectancy is four days, that is) or to see any one of a million different permutations for your country when the Finals roll around in 193 days time.

So join us for (Not) The 2010 World Cup Draw on the Sound of Football Podcast - heading for your ears this Monday night / Tuesday morning.

Sound Of Football Podcast 16 - World Cup Wigans roll!

With Terry experiencing technical issues, it is left to Graham and Chris to struggle through this week's Sound Of Football podcast. Mercifully the wonderful world of football has thrown up plenty of talking points including Spurs thrashing of Wigan 9-1, Liverpool's impending Champions League exit/dramatic recovery and of course, there's that World Cup Qualifier to talk about... plus France v Ireland. Didn't see that coming did you?

Sound Of Football Podcast 15 - World Cup Qualifiers

As the last batch of teams book their reservations at next year's World Cup Finals, the gang reflect on the drama and excitement in Moscow, Dublin and Cairo. We also ask if Portugal can navigate their way past a tricky Bosnia team and celebrate the qualification of the All Whites.

Sound Of Football Podcast 14 - A Change to our normal programming

This week, we offer an alternative to our usual format. This is due to a technical problem that wiped out all of Terry's track and rendered the original podcast useless.

Instead, Chris Oakley has gone it alone this morning to talk about Manchester United v Chelsea, the FA Cup and World Cup qualifiers.

We'll be back to normal service next week. In the meantime we hope you enjoy this lite but tasty morsel.

Sound Of Football Podcast 13 - Phil Brown, Rafa and the rest of Europe

Welcome aboard for another edition of the Sound Of Football Podcast. This week your Master of Ceremonies Chris Oakley, ably assisted by his ushers Graham Sibley and Terry Duffelen discuss the comings and goings (with the emphasis on the latter) in the world of football.

First up is beleaguered Hull City boss Phil Brown but unlike others the chaps aren't too quick to poke him with sharp sticks until he falls over the precipice. While we're at it, we also take a look at the bottom of the Premier League and wonder if Pompey's win against Wigan is the beginning of the turning of the corner.

After that we look ahead to this week's Champions and Europe League action and wonder if Rafa will survive Liverpool's trip to Lyon.

This week's show is a bit of a long one but does feature some comedy corpsing by Terry near the end plus a few coughs and sniffles. You can listen to the podcast here or if you right click on that link, you can download the MP3.
