Well, it's all kicking off in the Premier League, isn't it? Jose Mourinho's not a happy man and the world has to hear about it at every opportunity. The Football Fives Podcast isn't inclined to indulge him, but his influence tees up the first question of this week's "anything goes" episode. Favourite managerial outbursts? Yes please.

Ryan Keaney, Chris Nee and foul-mouthed Daniel Storey are without David Hartrick as we discuss big-name managers under pressure and ask whether Mourinho, Mr Josep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti are under any real threat of losing their jobs, and tackle the small matter of players who've squandered their potential.

In the middle, we talk about football's declining television audiences in the UK. BT, Sky Sports, the Premier League, the Champions League, illegal streaming and social clipping all feature as we try in vain to get to the bottom of why we're turning off.
