Are you not entertained?
Episode: 11, Season 2
Hosts: Roger Mitchell - Grant Williams
Guest/s: Simon Hallett
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 11: Simon Hallett, the new owner of Plymouth Argyle football club, talks about running a community club on 2019 and attracting new audiences. He discusses player strategies and the “no dickheads” culture. He goes on about league politics, and media strategies. Is football like running an investment firm? And the lads, of course, discuss Mourinho, Bale, sex before games, and Magic Johnson.
