Dean Richards

Anything goes in this week's Football Fives Podcast and the panel is challenged by both a wide array of topics and a lack of preparation. Daniel Storey, David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee discuss whether it's time for a FIFA amnesty, whether Premier League 'B' teams should be allowed to play in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and whether Leicester City's potential title would be team sport's most unlikely triumph.

There's a debate about whether the fifth tier of English football should be fully professionalised and become part of the Football League, before we round off this week's episode by recommending some good football stuff we've consumed in the past few weeks.

We recorded this show after the death of Johan Cruyff, so we had a chance to pay tribute to him at the beginning of the episode. We've named this episode after another fine player, one lost far too young: Dean Richards. Richards passed away tragically a little more than five years ago and we dedicate this episode as a mark of respect.
