Back once again with the ill behaviour, it's the Football Fives Podcast. We're back to our customary four-hander this week with Chris Nee's return from the brink of technological oblivion, so we decided to mark the occasion by doing next to no preparation and putting out another of our "anything goes" episodes.

First up, we re-acquaint ourselves with our respective taste in goals, before exploring in a bit more depth an issue that's come up as part of another question recently: why do pundits and various football folk get so blinded by the ball being touched in the process of a foul being committed? There's some Pep Guardiola stuff too.

In the last part of the show we answer a listener question from friend of the show Dave Musson, who wants to know our favourite examples of bad sportsmanwomanpersonship, and get all emotional about Henrik Larsson, whose birthday was this week. Fortunately for us we can do the same again next year.

With reluctant apologies for some of the sound quality (free podcasts sometimes can't do much about technical problems - you know how it is) Football Fives is delighted to unveil its latest weekly podcast episode about football things and that. This week we're talking about Brits abroad, or at least the footballing variety thereof.

The panel's down to three this week - honestly, it's been an absolute disaster - so it falls to Daniel Storey, David Hartrick and Ryan Keaney to mull over the key questions about those pioneers who board the ferry and head for the continent and beyond, the players and managers who step outside the perceived norms and create their own path. And Joe Hart.

We tip our hats to our favourite travelling players and managers before going in two-footed on John Hartson's comments about Oliver Burke's move to Germany and whether English football is to blame for its players' lack of adventure.

In a move that's almost guaranteed to ensure that the Football Fives Podcast falls flat before its time, this week's episode is a typhoon of self-referential nonsense. It's a year or two too soon for that kind of thing, but there you go. We're a man down this week, so thanks to the United Kingdom's rail infrastructure for that.

In this episode Daniel Storey, David Hartrick and Chris Nee cruise back through four questions from Football Fives passim, discussing whether or not our views have changed in the intervening period. We look at the loan system, football's worst arguments, the next first-time Ballon d'Or winner and a fantasy relegation.

Finally, we disappear up our own hole by asking which episode of Football Fives is our favourite so far. One of the panel did offer his resignation upon discovering this question but a huge pay rise has compromised his integrity, so we'll be back to full-strength next week.
