Podcast: Champions League final! – from the 1954 floodlight at Molineux to the 2019 english showdown at Wanda Metropolitano

We're just a few days away from the finals of this year's Champions League. While Tottenham and Liverpool are busy preparing for the evening in Madrid, we have brought the William Shakespeare of football journalists to our podcast, Jonathan Wilson.

Norsk intro følger under.

Wilson contributes with his insights and helps us to tune into football history as we discuss the deeper context of the game. Furthermore, we try to get into the heads and tactics of Pocchetino and Klopp. Finally we look at how money has affected the players loyalty to football clubs as a whole.

The match that inspired the European Cup that we now knows as the Champions League: Wolves v Spartak Moscow, 16th November 1954

Jonathan Wilson og Joe Devine explains Liverpools Gegenpressing

Podkast: CL-finale! – fra flomlyset på Molineux i 1954 til 2019 og Pocchetino mot Klopp på Wanda Metropolitano.


Jonathan Wilson bidrar med sin innsikt, hjelper oss i å nøste i Champions League-historien og se sammenhenger. Samtidig prøver vi å gå inn i hodene på Tottenhams Mauricio Pocchetino og Liverpools Jürgen Klopp. I tillegg kjenner vi på nostalgien, og spør hva de store pengene har gjort med den ærverdige lojaliteten.


Jonathan Wilson skriver regelmessig om fotball og taktikk i The Guardian. Han har skrevet fem bøker, inkludert Inverting the Pyramid som ble kåret til Årets fotballbok i 2009.
