European Football Special podcast - Episode 2

The monthly European football superpod is back! The panel returns to Studio 31 to bring you the trials and tribulations of football on the continent, and this month there’s a distinctly international feel as we focus on Euro 2012 Qualifying before having a quick look at domestic football in our countries of choice: Spain, France, Russia, Germany and Italy. There’s also a detailed look at Serbian hooliganism in the wake of the disturbing scenes in Genoa this week.

Featuring Graham Sibley, Jonathan Fadugba, Chris Oakley, James Appell, Terry Duffelen and Chris Nee, EFS will be available to Sound Of Football listeners as well as subscribers to the wonderful Twofootedtackle podcast.

Sound Of Football Podcast 58 - Liverpool's seventh inning stretch and other Baseball cliches

Join us for another edition of the Sound Of Football podcast. This week we don our reflective hats and try to make sense of the crisis at Liverpool FC.

We discuss the thinking behind Tom Hicks and George Gillett's tactics in dragging the new ownership bid through the courts. We wonder if, in John W Henry, Liverpool will be getting a new owner who will use the same methods as their would be predecessors to bring success to the club. We lament the plight of Roy Hodgson, a coach we all admire and ask the rather obvious question, is the Liverpool manager on borrowed time?

We also consider the nuclear option: What will happen if the court finds in favour of Hicks and Gillett? We also manage to include at least five quotes from The Simpsons which must be a pod record.

Sound Of Football Podcast 57 - Hard Tackles

On this week's Sound Of Football podcast the chaps examine the recent attention surrounding hard tackling in English football. In the light of Nigel De Jong's leg breaker on Hatem Ben Arfa and Karl Henry's flying kick on Jordi Gomez we ask if the Premier League is becoming more physical?

Are some Premier League manager's using excessively physical tactics because they are under the impression that it will increase their chances of surviving in the League? If so is there an alternative? Or are we just over-reacting to a perception of a series of disparate incidents rather than identifying a trend?
