The Football Fives Podcast is back with no apologies for missing last week - what we did instead was a lot of fun, so there - and Ryan Keaney's late withdrawal means that he misses out on one of our occasional 'blind' episodes, in which one of our number brings a subject to the table that the others do not know in advance, and ask the traditional five questions thereupon.

This time, it's even trickier. Dave Hartrick is in the chair and he's got a shiny new idea: pulling a team out of a hat and talking about them, so even he didn't know what Daniel Storey and Chris Nee would be discussing. Yes, twohundredpercent did it and did it better. And while Dave protests his innocence, at least one of the others remains suspicious.

The unlucky team out of the pot after an aborted first effort is Tottenham Hotspur, whose past, present and future therefore become the talking points of this week's show. Something approaching normal service will be resumed in due course.

Thursday (or Friday, or whatever) means it's time for a new episode of the Football Fives Podcast, and this week it's a whole new format for the show as well. We've got five questions - that's one corner into which we've painted ourselves irretrievably - but the subject at hand is the first in what we hope will be a series of season reviews.

Being kids of the 1990s, working our way through that decade year by year was the only way we could approach it, so this week's show focuses on the 1990/91 season. Within, we ask five questions about the season and the big stories and moments within, and establish just how much at least three of us don't remember.

Chris Nee's in the host's chair and navigates Daniel Storey, David Hartrick and Ryan Keaney through a discussion about the headlines from 1990/91, the best goals, the retrospective surprises and the forgotten players that deserve a mention in 2017. And, of course, we assess the performance of our own teams. Go!

The Football Fives Podcast is occasionally an unplanned mess. Sometimes we'll have all our ducks in a row, however, and when that happens we like to focus properly on a particular subject area whether it's topical or not. That'll be an internationals episode without an international dates in sight, then? Of course it will.

Our four-strong panel of Daniel Storey, David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee, rifle through five questions about the international game, laying waste to the subject matter for an hour. Again. We know. Yes, it's too long.

On the agenda this week: the UEFA Nations League (the naaaaaaaaashuuuuns), unlucky Slovakia, our favourite Irish tournament moments, the FIFA World Cup qualifying playoffs next month, and the future or otherwise of the Netherlands. Is it all over for them at the highest level of international football?
