    All About Social, Recreational, Grassroots & Amateur Football With Khal from Padang Bola Sepak: 57

    All About Social, Recreational, Grassroots & Amateur Football With Khal from Padang Bola Sepak: 57

    The focus on football is often always on the top flight and professional aspect of the game. However, what is often forgotten, is the other end of the pyramid; the social, recreational and amateur landscape of football.

    As we all know, football is just a game, and in the words of coach Gordon Bombay of the Mighty Ducks, games should always be fun. When talking about fun, you won't find anywhere better than having a kickabout with a group friends.

    Hence why on this episode, we've got the best person to talk about this subject. Khal is an avid football activists and has been a prominent voice in promoting social, recreational and amateur football.

    EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Thailand's National Team Head Coach, Alexandré "Mano" Pölking : 56

    EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Thailand's National Team Head Coach, Alexandré "Mano" Pölking : 56

    In the recent AFF Suzuki Cup, not only Thailand have regain their place as the Kings of South East Asia after winning the tournament, they have also played some of the most scintillating brand of football we have seen in this region.

    This happened after the War Elephant have been enduring a torrid 2021 in which they didn't win any of their remaining World Cup qualifier games, thus missing out on the third round.

    The brainchild behind this renaissance is none other than the head coach Mano Pölking, who took the job just a few months before the tournament.

    On this episode, we asked Coach Mano on the background of his appointment for this job, the challenge that he had to undertake, expectation came with it and much more.  

    We would like to wish our sincere thanks to Coach Mano for taking his time to speak with us, it was a real honor for us to have him as our guest.

    BOOK REVIEW - Glorious Reinvention: The Rebirth of Ajax Amsterdam By Karan Tejwani: 55

    BOOK REVIEW - Glorious Reinvention: The Rebirth of Ajax Amsterdam By Karan Tejwani: 55

    Firstly a Happy New Year 2022 and welcome back to another brand new show.

    In our first episode of the year, we would like to bring back a former guest of ours, book author and football writer, Karan Tejwani. You may remember him from episode 19 when we talked to him on his first book, Wings of Change by Karan Tejwani, The Story of Red Bull & Football.  

    Link to Episode 19: https://open.spotify.com/episode/2G5BbKm23GSGMLwyU3uyjq?si=e4ce514513494d8a

    On his latest book, the focus is on Ajax Amsterdam's revival in the last few years after a somewhat gloomy period since their hey days in the 1990s. 

    We tried to cover on as many areas as possible including what took place in the new millennium, Johan Cruyff's return to the club and to where the club it is today.

    Aspiring To Be A Keeper? Let's Hear It From New York Red Bulls Goalkeeping Coach, Jyri Nieminen : 54

    Aspiring To Be A Keeper? Let's Hear It From New York Red Bulls Goalkeeping Coach, Jyri Nieminen : 54

    From our playground days experience, the most obvious thing we know is that not everyone wants to be a goalkeeper. Hence why, that role is somehow rather reserve for one of our co-host, Bala.

    However in the context of modern football, we have also learned a great deal that being a good goalkeeper is not for everyone. Hence, not only it takes a special kind of talent, but also a special kind of coaching to become a top one.

    We are honored and privilege to have Jyri Nieminen, who is the goalkeeping coach for the New York Red Bulls.

    We tried to touch on every single aspect that evolves around goalkeeping coaching, be it technique and skills, or emotional and mental strength.   

    If you have as aspiration in becoming a keeper, then this episode is for you!
