Making numbers fun

Always enjoy listening in to hear some interesting football discussion and analysis as well as having a good laugh along the way. Would love to get some links in the description vis-a-vis different articles that are referred to as well as links to the different books, tv series, movies, etc that are discussed in the ‘not soccer’ segment.
