Sound Of Football Podcast 343 - The Championship versus the Champions League

Who wins when football broadcasters embark on a ratings war?

This season, Sky will show eight full rounds of the Championship on the same night as the Champions League is being shown on BT Sports. Despite being England's second tier, the Championship is the sixth richest league in Europe and boasts two winners (Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest) and a finalist (Leeds) of Europe's premier cup competition.

Graham, Terry and Jan discuss this latest ramping of hostilities between the two broadcasters and also talk about the effect the early closing of the transfer window in England has had on the general narrative surrounding the game.

Sound Of Football Podcast 342 - La Décima

There's really nothing like that feeling at the beginning of the season. In the first podcast of our tenth season, we look at two of our favourite aspects of this time of year.

Firstly we look at fantasy football, or more accurately the way fantasy teams are created and promptly forgotten. Jan plays every week but Graham creates a team with all good intentions and then doesn't do a thing with it. If you're more like Graham than Jan when it comes to fantasy football, our special guest, football writer Tom Victor (@tomvictor) may have the answer.

In the second half of the podcast we look at hopes and expectations for the season ahead. Broadcaster Archie Rhind-Tutt (@archiert1) talks to Terry about how Fulham will shape up on their return to the top flight and tell us all about their wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon.

*To join Tom's fantasy football league, simply go to, create your team of losers and join the league using the code: 624289-136790 - remember, you have to spend every penny of your budget!
