Things we miss most about 2000s football – The Broken Metatarsal

Quick Reads
The Broken Metatarsal S2 E3

We love 2000s football so much we decided to set up a podcast all about it – and in the latest episode of The Broken Metatarsal we go into detail about some of the things we miss most about that wonderful decade.

Comedian Mark Smith returns alongside Rich Williams, Mark Holmes and Pete Farries to reminisce about unknown signings, poorly-fitting shirts, spending with reckless abandon, aggressive tackling, when Super Sunday really was super, the Champions League on ITV, multiple player unveiling photoshoots and much more.

And, as always, we finish with an episode of Fact or Fiction in which Rich tries to work out which of the unlikely stories about Andy Gray and Richard Keys is, in fact, true.

You can listen to the episode directly below or find us on Audioboom, Apple PodcastsSpotifyCastBoxDeezer and RadioPublic among other providers, where you can hear plenty more episodes in which we celebrate the best of noughties football.
