Welcome to the latest episode of the Football Fives Podcast. This week we're without Daniel Storey, who presumably was out on some kind of press tour to promote The Totally Football Show, so it was left to the three remaining panelists to embark upon on of our very favourite Fives formats: the tournament retrospective. Yes!

Over the years we've mentioned far too many times that the FIFA World Cup closest to one's birthday is the one against which other tournaments are compared. For Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee, that tournament was USA '94, and in this week's episode we finally get around to talking about it through a mist of nostalgia. David Hartrick completes the line-up to take the edge off the giddiness.

So, World Cup USA '94. Romario and Bebeto. Bulgaria and Stoichkov. Salenko. Romania and Hagi. Even El Diego made an appearance! Join us, then, as we relive the most attended World Cup in history with childlike excitement.

We're not late. You're late. Or you're early. Or we're early. Or something. Either way, this is last week's podcast this week. Later this week you'll get this week's podcast this week. Clear? Good. This is what trying new things and then contracting the lurgy will do for your podcast, folks. Think on. Anyway, Episode 120 is an 'anything goes' show, so let's go.

We're sans Keaney this week so it's David Hartrick, Daniel Storey and Chris Nee who begin by discussing the Premier League's new proposal for a staggered winter break. Is it needed? Is it a good compromise? Or are we all just so distracted by football that we can't go two weeks without something tasty to watch?

There's also a chat about Wolverhampton Wanderers and their recruitment strategy, some aimless speculation about big transfers of the future, a debate about the longevity of Jose Mourinho's prospects at Manchester United and a not-for-nothing run-down of our favourite ever Dutch international goals.

It's not always endearing to rattle through a podcast without any preparation but sometimes it can keep old hands like us on our toes. Every now and then, the Football Fives Podcast likes to tackle a 'blind' episode, by which we mean an episode in which only one or none of us knows what's on the agenda.

This week, we're taking on an unnamed football club and answering five questions thereupon. David Hartrick is the man in charge of the hat, and, in Daniel Storey's deadline day absence, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee follow up our previous selection of Tottenham Hotspur by randomly selecting a club to discuss. Naturally, we want to avoid the headlines and get under the skin of something original.

That'll be Manchester City, then. Still, the hat never lies so we muddle through with what knowledge we can scrape together about our favourite City players past and present, our own relationship to and opinion of the club, their progress this season - LOLZ - and where we see them going in the next three years.
