Sound Of Football Podcast 312 - The managerial merry-go-round 2017


The managerial merry-go-round is spinning again. Just weeks after Leicester and Everton part ways with their manager, both West Ham and Sunderland have seen fit to follow suit. Much has been said recently at lack of the opportunities for promising British coaches but is that down to the influx of foreign coaches or more down to the fact that after sacking a manager, chairman want the calm, steadying influence of an Allardyce, a Hodgson or even a Moyes?

Are the jobs going to the right people? Is their a balance to be struck between pragmatism and progression?

Taking Jan's club Sunderland as our ready example, Graham and Terry join him to look at the names topping the betting for their new head coach. Can we find any logic in those names being there, or can we offer any alternatives that would be better and, more importantly, would actually want it?

Sound Of Football Podcast 311 - The kids are alright


When the England Under 17s lost the final of their Euros on penalties back in May few would have thought it would be the start of an incredible summer for England's youth teams. In June, a squad made up largely of the U18s won the Toulon Tournament, this was eclipsed in the same month by the U20s winning their World Cup in South Korea. July saw the U19s return from Georgia as European Champions. Last weekend the U17s bounced back from that Euros defeat to add their World Cup to an already unprecedented haul of silverware.

While it is a time for celebration the subject of what opportunities will be available in club football for these players is never far from the back pages. Will more players like Jadon Sancho look abroad for their chance of top level first team football?

Terry, Graham and Jan look at the prospects for England's fledging talent and what, if anything, it means for the future of the senior side.
