    What challenges must football confront, to secure its future?

    What challenges must football confront, to secure its future?

    Mike Calvin, John Cross and Paul Hayward examine the chaos surrounding Liverpool's failure to win the Champions League. They consider the implications of Manchester City's dominance, from Under16 level upwards, and map out the evolution of Jurgen Klopp's next great team. They also look outside the top two, to name their alternative winners and losers of a significant season.

    Was this the best of Manchester City's six title wins in the last decade?

    Was this the best of Manchester City's six title wins in the last decade?

    Mike Calvin, Dominic Fifield and Richard Amofa assess an unforgettable final day, and Manchester City's dominance of the Premier League over the last ten years. A treble for Liverpool, culminating in Saturday's Champions League final, would be appropriate compensation. Antonio Conte has galvanised Spurs, but Burnley's future is bleak following their relegation.

    Will the season's most unlikely dream, Rangers winning their first European title for fifty years, come true?

    Will the season's most unlikely dream, Rangers winning their first European title for fifty years, come true?

    Mike Calvin, Patrick Barclay and Tony Hodson preview the final of the Europa League, a competition that has come of age. They recognise the youthful talent fuelling confidence in Eintracht Frankfurt's approach, but believed a combination of astute coaching, big game players and passionate support will lead to Rangers winning their first European trophy since the Cup Winners Cup in 1972.

No self-respecting Football

Supporter would listen to a podcast with a Sun journo on it.
Otherwise this pod is quite decent.

Total eclipse of the *un.
Peace!!!

Mike Calvin’s Liverpool Lovefest

Take a moment to consider the last half-dozen episodes of this podcast. A perusal of the titles will suffice. Mike Calvin seems to have fallen under Jurgen Klopp’s spell and is engaged in an all out Mersey Charm Offensive. Journalism has been subjugated to a Liverpudlian wankfest. I’ve paused listening until he recovers his journalistic sensibilities.

A good listen

A regular listen for me for the past six months. Drops twice weekly. Host is very good at keeping the conversation interesting and moving along. Pundits are generally good - Adrian Clarke and Jonathan Northcroft are my favourites.
