Bombazo LaLiga Podcast 31: Sid Lowe special

Bombazo: The Scandinavian LaLiga Podcast

Episode 31 of Bombazo is a special one as we talk to one of our favourite football journalists and a man you should all be familiar with, Sid Lowe. Not only has Sid been the guy bringing Spanish football to an English speaking audience via The Guardian for as long as we can remember, he's also one of the hosts and people behind The Spanish Football Podcast – in our humble opinion the best pod on Spanish football out there. That's thanks in no small part to their dedication to attending games and getting to know the human beings behind the clubs. Sid knows more about Spanish football than most, so it was only right for us to grill him on the Scandinavians in Spain, including...– Why Martin Braithwaite is such a convincing player to speak to, and how that has won over Barça's coaching staff as well as a certain number 10. – His high hopes for Martin Ødegaard, in Sid's view probably the best player in LaLiga this season behind the aforementioned Lionel Messi. But there are some concerns about him continuing to play in the right environment for his development. – How Alexander Isak's endless confidence impressed him when the Swede put Real Madrid to the sword at the Santiago Bernabéu after a less than perfect first half. – Plus praise for Daniel Wass, intrigue on Pione Sisto, a bit of Zlatan, a bit of Henke, and how he ended up with Thomas Gravesen's shorts.You can hear Sid and the TSFP guys here, and they also have loads of additional content for subscribers.  Thanks again for listening and, yes, you know what's coming: LEAVE A RATING for Bombazo at your podcast provider of choice, please. Drop us a comment or even an email while you're at it. Follow the pod here, Alex here, and Lee here. Enjoy the episode, it's a good one!

When Ipswich took the lead against local rivals Norwich on Saturday, Mick McCarthy couldn't resist having a go at his own fans.Is there ever a right time to shoot back at the same people who have been criticising you for months? On reflection, probably not... but it doesn't mean it doesn't feel really good while you're doing it. We also praise the job Chris Hughton is doing as he leads Brighton to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and analyse his potential to be the next Ireland manager.Plus Sid Lowe joins us to wax lyrical about Andres Iniesta before he returns to Stamford Bridge, the site of his favourite goal-not-scored-in-the-World-Cup-final goal.
