Welcome back to The Home Room.
What is it? It's a podcast that delves into the world of football, examining one aspect of the game that we all love. Bringing together experts from all areas of the game, The Home Room uses anecdotes and insight to explore the world of football and the issues that surround it.
If this is your first time listening to our podcast, you're probably wondering what to expect - episode two was inspired by the theme of 'romance and realism in the modern game', a contentious subject that is sure to inspire some interesting arguments. Debating the subject on this occasion were:
- Daniel Sandison is editor of Halcyon magazine and co-editor of Stand Against Modern Football, the fanzine and movement that is looking to challenge many of the issues that surround the modern game.
- Professor Tony Collins is Director at the International
Centre for Sports History and Culture at De Monfort University, a very impressive title that roughly translated means that he's an expert in football history and the culture that surrounds it.
- David Johnson is a former professional footballer who played for the likes of Manchester United, Bury, Ipswich Town,
Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Wednesday, Burnley, Sheffield United and Hucknall Town, and now works as a scout for Chelsea, so he's seen the game from both sides of the fence.
Head over to our Soundcloud page now to hear their opinions on issues such as ticket pricing, The FA Cup and attitudes to fans - you can also download the podcast there and listen to episode one if you haven't heard it already.
Once again we really enjoyed making the podcast, and we'd like to thank all our guests for sharing their thoughts on this subject. If you've got any questions, thoughts or opinions on the episode, tweet us using the hashtag #TheHomeRoom.
