Football greats and lifelong friends Clive Tyldesley and Martin O'Neill team up to discuss the biggest football stories from across the week.

What is the Football Authorities? It is everything that it’s not!
It’s not a podcast that revisits every game, every goal, every VAR decision like a Match of the Day repeat. It’s not a guessing game about who’s next for the sack, next for a big money move or next to trend. Instead, Martin and Clive tell the stories behind the stories... finding the reasons for the big decisions and examining the meaning of football life.

How? Through the unrivalled lived experience that decades around the iconic games and greatest names in football have brought the way of Martin and Clive, relating the tales from their long careers in football to the ever-changing present and future of the game. They have been there, seen it and understand it. They are the Football Authorities.

    Is there a good way to break bad news?

    As Gareth Southgate announces his Euro 2024 squad, Clive Tyldesley & Martin O'Neil ask 'Is there a good way to break bad news?' As well as, 'Is the England Manager's job the impossible job?'
    And the pair peak behind the curtain as Martin reveals what went into his interview process during 2006 after Sven-Göran Eriksson left the England camp.

    With Clive commentating on the Champion's League final, and Martin no stranger to a big day in North-West London, today on the Football Authorities we attempt to answer the question how do you win a must-win game?

    Before we kick off properly on Monday, Martin and Clive headed into the studio to explain a bit about "who" and "what" The Football Authorities are! And while they were there they couldn't help but discuss last weekend's play-off final either, asking "Is promotion to the Premier League the biggest step up in football?"
