AYNE 619 - Goal/Own Goal
Goal Own Goal is as much about petty nonsense as it is the most serious of finance, geopolitics and culture. Today's show covers a lot of ground, from Joey Barton to anti-Semitism in sport; from penthouses in Newcastle to Jim Cramer.
Entertained we are
Always thoughtful, always entertaining. This is a great podcast if you are interested in sport and the business of sport, with high quality guests who provide unique insights into what sport has been, what it is today and what it might look like in the future. But it mostly works because of Grant, Roger and Giles, whose love of sport shines through.
Good podcast but…
It’s been called the Premier League for over a decade. Roger calling it the “Premiership” is driving me mad!
I heard the castle towers whisper...
Found the pod via Duncan's/Ian's podcast. Very new way of looking at sport, whilst i struggle to listen/focus - it was clear that you all had a deep knowledge and passion for what was being discussed. I wouldn't pass the 45 minute acid test, but would definitely listen!
