Interview: The Football History Boys

In the first episode of the Beat The Press podcast, we speak to Ben Jones and Gareth Thomas, founders of ‘The Football History Boys’ website and authors of ‘Football’s Fifty Most Important Moments’.

Join us for a discussion about the parallels between the modern-day reaction to football’s suspension and the response in 1914 and 1939. We also reminisce about Welsh legends John Charles, Ian Rush and Barry Horne, learn why the 1923 ‘White Horse’ FA Cup Final was more ‘black mark’ safety-wise and leave a bit of time to ponder Jose Mourinho’s fascination with bed linen.
