Sound Of Football Podcast 216 - Going fourth

Despite the recent failings of English clubs in Europe a look at the UEFA coeffecient table sees England sitting second, still just slightly ahead of Germany and a huge 13 points ahead of Italy in fourth. Though with three Italian sides left in the competitions there is the potential for that gap to shrink to just a quarter of a ranking point by the start of next season - the equivalent of a single win. This could see season 2015/16 as a year long play off for a fourth Champions League place.

This week, Jan, Terry and Graham discuss how losing a Champions League spot would affect the Premier League - especially with the recent announcement that UEFA would be providing even even more money to those competing in it.

Also discussed is the FSF's campaign for fairer wealth distribution and of course there's another round of Top Trumps.

Sound Of Football Podcast 215 - Sunderland's New Manager 2015

With the inevitability of the launch of a new iPhone or the arrival a tax demand, Sunderland have plunged themselves into the search for yet another new manager. Jan gives a fan's perspective as he casts his critical eye over the Poyet reign. We also try to work out why it's taken so long for Jamie Carragher to work out that the Premier League might not be all it's cracked up to be.

There's another swashbuckling round of Top Trumps, including a failed attempt at electoral fraud from Terry in a vain effort to wrest control of the game from you, the listeners.
