Hello, we're Cafe Calcio, AND WE ARE BACK! No, not the awesome cafe on the Crwys Road in Cardiff, but three guys (Chris Dixon, David Stubbs and Chris Roberts) based in London who make a show for http://soundcloud.com/resonance-fm discussing football in the cultural context. It's all a bit of a laugh, and topics covered in shows that you'll find here include stuff like architecture in football stadia, football's relationship with war, football in the former eastern bloc, fan's fodder and such like. We also get in some pretty useful guests: Jonathan Wilson, Crystal Palace FC chairman Steve Parish, Rafael Honigstein, Cass Pennant, Paul Trevillion... the list goes on, and will continue to do so as we bring you a new show each week (well, when we're in season).

Pop across to our blog at cafecalcio.posterous.com to get our writings and supplementary companion material to features on the show!

Fan

Most intelligent and analytical podcast on European soccer.. keep it going

Revcha0s ,

Grown ups talk football

Relaxed and intelligent discussions about football related topics and subculture, with great musical interludes.

Worth reviewing to just get them to remove the plea at the end of the pod for reviews.

itnoJ ,

Decent but flawed

Like the humour except for the occasionally excessive sneering, and like the flow apart from the presenter's tendency to talk over his guests. The whole thing has potential but needs to stop trying too hard.
