Fabio Grosso

It's a new year and a World Cup year, so what better way to kick off our podcasting proceedings with a look back at a competition from the past. Every now and then we put together a tournament retrospective episode and, this week, we present our distant take on FIFA World Cup 2006. Seems like yesterday, doesn't it?

Italy took the famous trophy home from Germany after defeating the hosts in a dramatic semi-final and seeing off a fine French side in the final showpiece. In this Football Fives special Daniel Storey, David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee ask whether the right team won, as well as analysing England's performance in their quarter-final run.

We reveal our favourite goals and our favourite matches, and we pick apart the competition's most memorable moments and characteristics. So sit back, stick yo' buds in, and relive the last tournament to not be destroyed by social media.

We're phoning it in for Christmas even though it's not, you know, Christmas. Our original plan for this week will now be played out next time around, but we've taken advantage of David Hartrick's work-related absence to throw the show open to you, our loyal and imaginary listeners. Yes, it's a listener questions lucky dip!

Having whittled our question submissions down to a lovely round number of, erm, we've forgotten, Daniel Storey chucked them into a hat that didn't exist and we pull out the customary five to discuss in this, our podcast about football. Football Fives, you see. This week Dan, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee flounder in Dave's shadow.

We talk about footballing shithouses, statues that don't exist but should, our clubs' Christmas lists, football on Boxing Day and football on Boxing Day again. It's eclectic, or at least that's what the marketing bumph says. Good luck.

With Christmas fast approaching, we gave ourselves a lovely little present on this week's Football Fives Podcast. You see, one of our favourite things to do is record ourselves talking to one another about five-a-side football. To be more precise we like to build the ultimate five-a-side team from this country or that country, and that's what we're doing in the this episode.

We've done this for some big names already. We even took the plunge and did one for England, which is something we'd been keeping for a rainy day because, y'know, some of us are English. We did fictional footballers. We did the Football League outside the top flight. We did foreign players in Serie A.

Now, arguably the most legendary selection we'll ever tackle. This week Daniel Storey, David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee are debating and selecting the ultimate five-a-side team from... Brazil. Enjoy.
