Sound Of Football Podcast 235 - Banning headers

In what could prove to be a landmark decision, football chiefs in the USA have decided to ban headers from games for under 10s and restrict them for U13s. What would be the repercussions if this ruling was spread amongst the wider game?

Graham, Terry and Jan discuss the results of recent studies as well as the wider issue of concussion in football. Are changes likely in the professional game or will they carry on despite the risk? What would football without headers even be like?

There's also a celebration as one of the crew hits an impressive milestone.
