Kerry Katona 2 - 1 England

The Football Hour has been on its summer holidays, but it got an early flight home, just like the England football team. The anger presenter @alexmearns7 felt needed to be let out in audio form and here is that audio. I wanted to call this podcast 'Shit Pegs In Round Holes' but I don't like swearing when its not directed at a television screen displaying England matches. But, it just felt last night and most of the tournament, Roy Hodgson was playing the wrong players, in the wrong positions (square pegs, round holes). Have a listen to the most pessimistic podcast about England's defeat to Iceland there is available on Itunes and Audioboom.

Transfer Time Tunnel: Liverpool FC 89/90 - Featuring Rush, Hansen & Barnes

Hello Football Friends, Welcome to our weekly feature, Transfer Time Tunnel. This week's team is Liverpool's last ever title-winning team, it is rather remarkable that the red-men have not since won a league title. There was a number of very special players including John Barnes, who was LFC's star-man that season. What happens on the feature is Alex goes through the 1-11 and works out each individual players age at the time of that particular match or season. Then I work out how much every player at that age would be worth in 2017's mad modern transfer market. I then create the team's total transfer price and see how it compares to other historic football teams.

Sean Dyche Reads: 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' - The Prologue

Hello Football Friends, The Premier League is awash with some of the most skilful players, tiki-taka football, Brazilian Flair. The league is watched and adored by hundreds of millions around the football world. We witness some incredible goals, we have seen some quite monumental moments throughout the premier league years. I'm thinking Di Canio's volley, Agueroooooo's title-winning goal, Sir Alex Ferguson reign at United and Leicester City defining the odds to go from relegation candidates to Premier league champs. We learnt from some of the greatest managers in football history, Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Sir Alex, Ancelloti & Arsene Wenger. But no one has made as much of an impact on English football, as one man. And that Man is Sean Dyche of Burnley Football Club. I have said it before and I'll say it again. When God created football, god thought to himself, football needs Sean Dyche. The ginger Mourinho has added so flavour to our footballing experience. So I said to myself, I have to get Sean Dyche on the football hour. But Sean wouldn't come on the show unless it was on his terms & his terms were that he would read something soft, to show a different side to Sean that we have not seen before. This is Sean Dyche reading 50 Shades of Grey. If you enjoy please tweet the podcast via @TheFootballHour #seandyche #burnley #bfc #premierleague #bpl #mourinho #england #football #soccer
