With the season nearing its end but drama thin on the ground, we're back on an Anything Goes kick this week, so as not to ruin any season review #content we might choose to pursue in the next few weeks. We're down to three this week due to Ryan Keaney's absence, but, on the plus side...we're down to three this week due to Ryan Keaney's absence!

Daniel Storey, David Hartrick and Chris Nee kick off with a discussion about whether send-offs for legendary players have gone too far, and we talk about what our teams need to achieve over the summer in order to meet their ambitions in 2017/18. We identify some teams, managers and players who've had a quietly very good season, and reveal what we've learned from the last nine months.

In the middle of the show this week, we spend some time on the subject of BT Sport's cancellation of the European Football Show. Is it a mistake? Is it just a case of pure numbers? Should it be? Check out all the ins and outs we could think of in this week's Football Fives Podcast.

Nobody likes to be deceived. When one is promised a blind episode of the Football Fives Podcast, one expects a blind episode of the Football Fives Podcast. So when Daniel Storey, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee got themselves psyched up for David Hartrick's unplanned subject this week, the disappointment was palpable when it dematerialised.

Instead, Dave decided to put the rest of us through the unexpected torture of a pub quiz. That's right, listeners who inexplicably enjoy our quizzes, it's another one! And it's a bit of a greatest hits quiz too, with popular question formats from the past brought back to test and tax the unwitting contestants.

Join us as we wade through such classics as higher or lower and career paths, always with a twist. There's a club question free-for-all to kick things off, and little trapdoors here, there and everywhere. Find out who wins, and count your score as you go to see if you can beat his stupid smug face.

At certain times in the season we like to appear topical on the Football Fives podcast. That's mostly for a combination of two reasons - it feels nice to appear relevant every once in a while, and more often than not it helps 2017 FSF Football Writer of the Year Daniel Storey "conjure up" ideas for his future work by stealing the opinions of others.

In the week that saw the league season of the Championship finish with Newcastle United crowned champions, we've taken our time to discuss the Magpies' season, sing the praises of some players and managers currently operating in a division they might just be too good for, ponder how we expect Brighton will handle life at the top table and whether or not the unpredictable nature of the second tier is a good thing.

No Chris Nee this week, so settle in and enjoy the chatter of two men who both love and hate the Championship in equal measure - Daniel Storey and David Hartrick - alongside a man who does his best to pretend his only Championship viewing isn't the first 15 minutes of the early Saturday kick-offs before the 12.30 Premier League games get going - Ryan Keaney.
