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.
