Interview: Jonathan Wilson

In the second episode of ‘Beat The Press’ podcast, we speak to journalist Jonathan Wilson, author of the award-winning book ‘Inverting The Pyramid’ and founder of football quarterly ‘The Blizzard’.

Join us for a discussion about his latest venture, ‘The Squall’, a bitesize version of ‘The Blizzard’ that’s also aiming to help freelancers struggling in the wake of coronavirus. We talk about right-backs, including the story of the gay Italian World Cup-winner, who juggled football with teaching tennis to Mussolini’s child, and Imre Hirschl, Hungarian salami-salesman turned River Plate manager. Finally, there’s time to unearth George Graham’s comparison between the Arsenal offside trap and his bed of roses.
