Anything goes at Football Fives Podcast Towers this week, and we've got a full panel on hand to rattle through five pertinent, prominent and pretentious questions you'll find anywhere in the football podosphere this week. Take that, twofootedtackle.

Daniel Storey, Ryan Keaney, David Hartrick and Chris Nee go right for the obscure in our new episode, which begins with a conversation about Neymar's transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain and its impact on the wider game and its future. We talk about Crystal Palace and Frank de Boer, whose relationship status changed this week.

There's some chat about football teams we have an attachment to for no particular reason, a recommendation or five for games to watch this weekend, and a mea culpa each regarding our pre-season predictions, premonitions and...nah, can't think of another one. All in all, it ain't bad. Give it a go.

The whole Football Fives Podcast team go to football matches, but we also all watch regularly on television. The coverage of football on TV is a bottomless pit of debate and it's one we enjoy diving into on a regular basis. Sure enough, we're back on the case in this week's show despite the absence of BT Sport sympathiser Chris Nee.

To spice things up a little we opened up the phone lines and invited our listeners to take charge of our latest chat about football on the gogglebox. Daniel Storey, David Hartrick and Ryan Keaney take on five questions from the floor and get right under the skin of punditry, commentary and other assorted media matters.

Our particular thanks are extended to Steven Chicken, Simon Banoub, Jeff Waddell, Louie O'Grady, Jared Timm and Ed Valentine for stepping up to the plate and asking this week's questions. Enjoy!

Antonio Cassano

Old men. Many of us are prone to looking backwards, pining for the better days of some mythical bygone era. We do it in football as much as in any other part of life, and one of the most familiar complaints is that the game doesn't have any characters. Football needs more characters. But is that actually true?

In this episode of the Football Fives Podcast, three of the usual panel tackle that question and the wider subject of character and characters in football. We're without Daniel Storey this week, so David Hartrick is joined by Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee to talk about the kind of characters we want at our clubs and the importance or otherwise of passion in a professional player.

We ask whether the game's elite players are starting, finally, to get to grips with social media, and we each highlight one of our favourite footballing characters and recall a noteworthy story from their pasts.
