In our last Euro 2020 episode Graham and Pete take on questions about England's plan for Qatar and beyond; who starts next winter's World Cup as favourites and whether the laissez-faire refereeing of the Euros can unlock a faster kind of football. Thanks for all your support this season and especially during these daily Euro shows. We're taking a s…
 
Ciao ragazzi, and welcome to the first part of the Q&A, as we bring our Euro 2020 series to a close. Here, Graham and Pete Jenson discuss: the under-sung stars of the tournament; the errors made by England's management team; and the centurions at the heart of defence for the new champions of Europe. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out inf…
 
Recorded late, right after it went down, and with more than a little frustration in my voice. Forza Italia, the new champions of Europe, but where was the new England we had grown so fond of watching? Undone by slow decision-making on the touchline and a tired talisman on the pitch. Here's my on-the-whistle take on the final. See acast.com/privacy …
 
Hola The last time England met Italy at a major tournament was in the first group game of the 2014 Brazil World Cup. Italy won 2-1 that day, thanks to goals from Balotelli and Marchisio. One of our Socios posed a challenge: Which player from the England and Italy teams from 2014 would make the current teams? Never one to shirk a challenge, this is …
 
When it comes to the summer transfer window, no team treats its fans better than Paris Saint-Germain. On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by Guillaume Delaporte and James Teague to discuss all of the latest additions to the PSG squad and whether the new faces are enough to convince Kylian Mbappé to sign an extension. Up first, we break down …
 
Hola! Wow.... what a semi-final. This was recorded in the early hours of this morning, after I'd gathered my thoughts on events at Wembley last night. It was a privilege to be there. What. A. Night. Olmo, Pedri, Jorginho, Chiellini... just incredible. Enjoy Graham See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.…
 
Hola! This is it... the day of the Euro 2020 Italy-Spain semi-final - and I'm literally on my way to Wembley. Jump in my London Cab and listen to some of my semi-final experiences covering La Roja ... and more thoughts on tonight's match. Plus, my Bet365 Player of the Day. Enjoy G See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.…
 
Hola! I'm in London ahead of tomorrow night's Italy-Spain Euro 2020 semi-final. Listen up for how La Roja vanquished a century-old Italian curse at Euro 2008. We also dip into the mailbag to answers questions on how Spain can find a way past Roberto Mancini's hugely impressive Italy. And there's also my Bet365 Player of the Day! Enjoy See acast.com…
 
Here's what I think about Gareth Southgate's career-defining moments on and off the pitch, including his response to racists and his management of a talent-packed squad; which players might make big moves after the tournament; why we haven't seen much of Thiago so far. And a loan move happens as we are recording! Wolves fans, be excited. See acast.…
 
Nerves shredded, I send you this from the post-apocalyptic aftermath of Spain's quarter-final with Switzerland. Don't let the outcome fool you, it was Switzerland's gameplan, and not Spain's that prevailed. But thanks to Unai Simon, we're on our way to Wembley. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.…
 
Leo Messi's transition into free agency was a big story yesterday, so here's why I think he's probably not going, but he won't stay until he shapes his final years at FC Barcelona as much as he can while in a position of maximum leverage. Then we talk Spain v Switzerland and Italy v Belgium, and why Sergio Busquets has proved to be so influential f…
 
Hola! We’ve dipped into The Big Interview archive to serve you up a nice little slice of Sven-Goran Eriksson, in which he reflects on the relationship between Roberto Mancini and Gianluca Vialli at Sampdoria. He tells us not only how the Goal Twins ran the dressing room and effectively the whole club, but also how Mancini the artist could turn into…
 
A blessed day of rest, so a good chance to get through some of your questions. Including: which of the lesser-known players would I go for if I was FINALLY in charge of a major European club? Who are the equivalents of Rio, Wrighty and Ally on Spanish television's coverage? And which England player has unlocked Harry Kane's mojo? See acast.com/priv…
 
Another late-night episode recorded right after Spain's game (with an added bonus recorded after France were knocked out by Switzerland - stick around at the end!) I loved watching Spain v Croatia - I hope you did too. It was about explosive football, some weird moments and above all, character. Watch out. Here come Spain. See acast.com/privacy for…
 
Belgium have just knocked out Portugal here in Seville in a game that built to a thrilling finale. I recorded this as soon as I left the stadium, just after speaking to Thibaut Courtois - and that was a conversation that really got me thinking. So this is a story about a text I sent a long time ago, and a moment of audacity that helped to win the g…
 
I'm in Seville tonight for Belgium v Portugal - not just the tie of the round but potentially the tie of the tournament. Here I'll tell you about what I learned from interviews with Roberto Martinez and Jan Vertonghen and we'll revisit an old Big Interview - with Martinez's right-hand man, Shaun Maloney. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-ou…
 
Forgive the croak in my voice - this was recorded at the end of a very long day and night, before Spain left Seville ... destination - Copenhagen. In their destruction of a disappointing Slovakia team, Spain gave us a reminder of what they can do when everything clicks and when the opposition's guard drops. They have a history of these blowout wins…
 
We just finished recording this - my view on Scotland's exit last night and then an examination of what is at stake in the game I'll be leaving for shortly - Spain v Slovakia - and the decisions facing Luis Enrique. Socios, thanks for sending your questions in - please keep asking them, I'll respond to as many as I can on these daily podcasts. See …
 
Here's my look ahead to the final round of games in Group D: Scotland v Croatia and Czech Republic v England. With the news that Billy Gilmour is isolating after a positive Covid test, will Scotland find yet another way to break our hearts? I don't think so. And can England find the courage to unleash Jack Grealish on the Euros? See acast.com/priva…
 
Hola! This was recorded late last night, following Spain's disappointing 1-1 draw with Poland in Seville in their second group game of Euro 2020. The result leaves them with just two points from their first two games - and sees their Group E qualification hopes resting on Wednesday's meeting with Slovakia. Hope you enjoy Love ya G See acast.com/pri…
 
Here's my take on a new-look Scotland and what Steve Clarke achieved with a bang-on team selection and a game plan to starve Harry Kane of service. Also, news from the Spain camp on game day for them plus my Player of the Day comes from the tea-time kick off, Germany v Portugal. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.…
 
Hola! What a Euros so far eh? This is my latest bulletin from inside the Spain camp - ahead of tomorrow night's second group match v Poland - but listen out for reflections on some other games and teams that have set my pulse racing... from Belgium's gigantic performance v Denmark to Italy's fizzing 3-0 win over Denmark. And a wee bit of Scottish c…
 
Tomorrow, England play oldest rivals Scotland at Wembley in their European Championships group game. We dug into the Big Interview archives and unearthed the recollections of three men who engaged in two famous Euros encounters between the Auld Enemies at the old Wembley in the 1990s. One of Darren Anderton’s career highs occurred in June 1996 when…
 
24 hours later, I still can't figure out why Luis Enrique didn't go with Gerard Moreno earlier in their frustrating but not entirely unloveable 0-0 draw with Sweden. I traveled five hours up through Spain to see him back on the training pitch. Plus, I wonder if Gareth Bale can leave his mark on one more tournament for Wales. See acast.com/privacy f…
 
I recorded this as soon as my work was done last night. It's my first reaction to the first game in Spain's Euros, an intriguing and dramatic draw. This was a lop-sided, tension-filled, Hitchockian classic for Spain watchers. And despite their failure to score, they looked pretty damn good to me. We want your questions for these daily shows, so if …
 
Here's all the latest from the Spain camp on the morning of their opener against Sweden - I finally got to see the players after their Covid-enforced isolation. And I also got to watch England start their Euros with a win - there was a lot to like. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.…
 
As Spain's Covid crisis appears to ease, the coach Luis Enrique feels the heat from the nation's media while he mulls his opening team selection. Meanwhile, what will England's Gareth Southgate do in the same spot? And how close to a move to Barcelona is the Netherlands' main man, Memphis Depay?.

Hola Welcome to another of our daily Euro 2020 shows.

Hola! Welcome to another of our daily Euro 2020 shows. Here's my despatch from Madrid, where the Spanish national team are currently in isolation ahead of their opening group match against Sweden on Monday in Seville.

I caught up with Jonathan Northcroft as he prepared for another tournament covering England for The Sunday Times, to talk about how he thinks they have changed since their run to the final four of the 2018 World Cup - an adventure he documented in the book Deadlines and Darts With Dele. Jonathan picked his one to watch from Gareth Southgate's squad…
 
Hola Welcome to the first of our daily Euro 2020 shows. I spoke to Pat Nevin, the former Chelsea and Scotland winger, about Scotland's chances of getting out of a group containing the Czech Republic, Croatia and England. Pat is a former teammate and close friend of Steve Clarke, and I think you'll love his insights into the Scotland boss. Pat also …
 
The season has only just concluded and already, Paris Saint-Germain is making headlines. It's going to be a long summer... On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by Cose Espinosa and Carl-Oscar Källström to discuss PSG's managerial situation and the latest transfer rumors. Up first, we break down the situation regarding Mauricio Pochettino wher…
 
Ahead of tomorrow's Champions League final in Portugal, Graham and Pete answer your questions. It's 10 years on from the 2011 final, when Pep Guardiola's Barcelona put together their signature performance - outclassing Manchester United at Wembley. How many of his Man City players who will take the field tomorrow would have broken into their manage…
 
In part two of my fascinating chat with Ilkay Gundogan, we hear about the midfielder’s admiration for his Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. It's just about the best. most detailed and personal account that I have heard of the way the great coach works with his players and the strength of the relationships he forms. There's also plenty here on …
 
Paris Saint-Germain's 2020-21 season came to an anti-climatic end with only one trophy to show for its efforts. Now that the dust has settled, it's time to figure out what went wrong and how to improve for next season. On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by Cosé Espinosa for a one-on-one chat about PSG's campaign in which they finished runne…
 
On Saturday, Ilkay Gundogan hopes to line up for Manchester City against Chelsea in the Champions League final - and it's a tournament that he loves - well, as much as I do. He explains it in this interview -from childhood nights in a crowded living room with his family, watching on the television; to tough early experiences and then a run to the f…
 
Graham and Pete Jenson answer your questions about the Europa League final between Manchester United and Villarreal - as well as recapping on a thrilling end to Spanish title race. How does this version of the Yellow Submarine stack up against the great 2006 vintage of Senna, Riquelme and Forlan? Who has to fire up for Unai Emery's team to win the …
 
Paris Saint-Germain was unsuccessful in keeping a club that didn't even want to be in the UEFA Champions League from reaching the final and they only have themselves to blame. On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by Cose Espinosa and Carl-Oscar Källström to discuss PSG's 2-0 defeat (4-1 on aggregate) to Manchester City in the semi-final of th…
 
In part two of my uplifting interview with Brian Laudrup, we get into the detail of Denmark’s Euro ’92 fairy tale. A disappointing draw with England was followed by defeat to hosts Sweden and the Danes prepared to pack their bags. But a star-studded France team underestimated Laudrup and Co, who clinched a semi-final place against the Netherlands. …
 
Brian Laudrup was part of the Denmark side who were last-minute additions to Euro ’92. They would have been happy to have taken a point… but they only went on to win the tournament! Brian and his brother Michael weren’t keen on coach Richard Moller Nielsen’s ideas and both quit the national side. But Brian and Neilsen managed to sort things out onl…
 
In part two of my chat with John McGinn, we pick up just after hearing about how the midfielder’s beloved Celtic’s inexplicable dithering meant that Villa swooped for his signature. He relates the thrill of beating rivals West Brom in a penalty shootout to set up a play-off victory over Derby. John also describes Scotland’s showdown in Serbia to cl…
 
Paris Saint-Germain picked the worst time of the season to revert back to their old ways and now, they have an uphill battle in their quest for UEFA Champions League glory. On this episode of PSG Talking, I’m joined by Matt Gooding and Guillaume Delaporte to break down PSG’s 2-1 loss to Manchester City in the semi-final of the Champions League. The…
 
It was a real pleasure catching up with Scotland and Aston Villa midfield maestro John McGinn. John is a graduate of the academy at St Mirren where he was taught technique by progressive coaches – and also learned how to dodge fireworks! Let’s just say that training took place in Ferguslie Park, the more… boisterous end of Paisley. Hibernian came c…
 
This week might have been the most chaotic since news broke in 2017 that Neymar Jr. was leaving FC Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain. On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by Matt Gooding and Marc Damon to discuss the rise and fall of the European Super League and look ahead to PSG's upcoming UEFA Champions League tie against Manchester City. …
 
Welcome back to my chat with Pete Jenson and Neil White in which we consider if Real Madrid’s Three-peat side are underrated. As we heard in part one, certainly Real’s run-up to the first final was underwhelming and they had to take city rivals Atlético to penalties. But the 4-1 thrashing of Juve and then the beating of Liverpool surely deserve mor…
