Sound Of Football Podcast 72 - John Terry and the myth of the England captaincy

Terry, Graham and Chris are back for another edition of the Sound Of Football podcast.

This week we try to stay focused for about half an hour on the news that the controversial Chelsea defender John Terry has been awarded the England captaincy approximately one year after he was stripped of it.

Why is the role of captain so important that it should be a big story in it's own right? Does it have anything to do with the emergence of the England Supporter? What will John Terry add to the role?

We also take the opportunity to have a reminisce about England captains of the past and make a few disparaging remarks about the Welsh.
