Sound Of Football Podcast 77 with guest host Jon Hartley

Graham and Terry are delighted to welcome Jon Hartley from the Bundesliga Show. Both Jon and Terry are experienced bloggers and podders on German football so it makes perfect sense to make the topic of this week's show... the English Football League.

On this week's show, we discuss the latest TV deal for the League and its effect on club's finances. We also talk about a number of club's failures plus their ambitions and suggest that the two may be connected. We wonder if there might be a better way and we think about different methods of governance and League structure.

Sound Of Football Podcast 74 - Our Favourite XI

If your familiar with the Twofootedtackle website you'll be aware of their popular My Favourite XI feature. In which case, you'll know what to expect from this special bumper edition.

Terry, Graham and Chris select their favourite XI based on their reminiscences of watching football from all the way back to the 1960's. (We should stress that we were not around in the sixties, we just chose a couple of players from that time).

Chris will be typing up a blogpost which will appear on Twofootedtackle shortly.
