Santa Claus

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.

When it comes to pulling off a podcast - stop sniggering at the back - with very little preparation, the Football Fives Podcast panel has a small selection of go-to formats. This week's episode stems from one of those very roots, the blind episode. Within, the week's topics and quintet of questions are kept hidden from three of our number and sprung upon them unceremoniously in the moment.

On this occasion it's Chris Nee in the host's chair. The subject at hand? Being a football supporter. We have a few things in common and that's one of them. Facing this week's Football Fives grilling are Daniel Storey, David Hartrick and Ryan Keaney, who are challenged on their feelings about fandom.

The unprepared gentlemen of the podcast discuss football culture's relationships with gambling and alcohol, the whys and wherefores of wearing football shirts in public, the intersection between video games and supporter culture, and whether or not there's a significant difference between  fans and supporters.
