We talk to author and passionate football fan John Green.
He explains why he detests greed in football, why MLS needs relegation and his disappointment in Liverpool’s participation in the European Super League.
John describes the sense of community at AFC Wimbledon, how it’s the only crowd he feels comfortable in and how he tells the story (regularly) at dinner party’s.
We discuss his perennial disappointment with the US men’s national team, the success of the women’s team and his interest in the USL.
He tells us how ‘English James’ at his middle school got him in to football and Liverpool, the problem with the pay-to-play system and we discuss taking our Dads to Wembley for the League Two play-off final.
