We talk to ex-player and broadcaster Warren Barton.
He talks about the importance of sport during the pandemic, how much the US game has improved in recent years on and off the field but how the college system needs to improve to better prepare young players.
We talk about how playing for Wimbledon would have been good preparation for stadiums without crowds, why a coaching weakness cost the US a place at the Olympics and how far ahead the women’s game is in America, although Europe is starting to catch up.
A deep and insightful conversation with the former Newcastle legend who has been a stalwart of sports broadcasting over here for many years.
