Are you not entertained?
Episode: 9, Season 2
Hosts: Roger Mitchell - Grant Williams
Guest/s: Goal - Own Goal
Today, much of what sport has always meant to true fans, has been lost in a blizzard of corporate communications, fireworks and froth. As a result, the attachments, that were once so strong, seem more trivial in the global age of televised sport as entertainment. What was once authentic, is increasingly staged. In this podcast, we’ll get back to the things that sport has always meant to true fans.
Season 2, Episode 9: Statler and Waldorf come back for their Goal Own Goal “ok boomer” rants 🙂 . This week it is about: fake boxing; the end of influencers; glorious Lionesses; and a full health check around the glorious game of Association Football. The conversation goes on from the Kop, to Inter; from unreasonable coaches, to algo player trading strategies; from selling our Champions league soul, to banning heading. And part 2 of our series on Realpolitik in sport; Saracens rugby and closing the eye when needed. A great chat between two passionate souls.
