Sound of Football Podcast 285 - Marco van Basten's blue-sky thinking

We love a bit of blue-sky thinking here on The Sound Of Football, so we were delighted when Dutch legend Marco van Basten left a whole sack of blue-sky thoughts on our doorstep following an interview he gave to Bild last week.

Some of the ideas, such as the removal of the offside rule, have been flatly ridiculed by many in football but some have warmed to other less headline-grabbing proposals such as moves to curb time-wasting. Others see many of the ideas as change simply for the sake of it.

In this week's podcast, Graham, Terry and Jan take a closer look at the former Ajax and Milan legend's proposals and pick out what they think will offer any type of improvement for the game, and what, in their view, should be complete non-starters.
