Show 1: The One Where We Get Started
Hello, and welcome to the first proper episode of Footballing Life!
We used to be the Men in White and talk about Bolton Wanderers (and England, for that matter), but now we’re branching out. Our slogan is “everything but the game”. Basically, we’ll cover anything except what happens on the pitch.
So – no match reviews and player ratings (boring!), but plenty of timeless features about the wider world of football culture (because it’s not just a game, it’s a way of life).
This week, we’ve got:
- Football grounds that changed their name – and what the fans thought of it
- Top 3, Bottom 3: the best and worst football commentators
- Alternative first 11: our team of pop and rock stars
Teams mentioned this week include Newcastle United, Bolton Wanderers, Bradford City and Manchester City. Plus, there’s all the usual football culture chat!
