Podcast 135: We Need To Talk About Cristiano
There’s a different voice introducing this week’s 200% podcast. Edward is sunning himself in the south of Italy this week, so I was very fortunate to have football writer Steven Chicken drop by to stand in for him. This week’s subjects are linked in two respects. Firstly, both of them are from Portugal, and secondly they both touch on issues of extremism in modern football. The first subject is Crtistiano Ronaldo. Now, I’ve written on this particularly thorny subject twice already, here and here, but tonight we’re touching on the allegations made as well as the reaction, but only from some of the people and organisations involved, but also on social media. Our second subject is Jose Mourinho and the nature of swinging from extreme to extreme.
Thanks very much to Steven for joining me, you can find him on Twitter right here. As ever, I’m contractually obliged to remind you all that you can download the 200% podcast by right-clicking and saving here, whilst the 200% podcast’s RSS feed is here and you can subscribe through Itunes here. And if you’re wondering about whether you can do anything to prevent us from wasting away and ultimately starving, we now have a podcast shop at which you can buy our crap.
