This week’s Twohundredpercent podcast is a little later than usual, but we trust that it will be considered worth the effort because our subject is another on the architecture of football: goal posts and goal nets. As if to prove our grumpy descent into middle age, I make the bold claim that they’re not as good as they used to be, and set out to attempt to explain why, when football is more obsessed with becoming a spectacle than ever before, it is failing to do so in one extremely important respect, while Edward Carter sits and rolls his eyes.
