Episode 66: Referees’ kazoos, Nobby Stiles’ dolls & guest Ian Plenderleith

High on a surprise package of CBD gummies and pondering Nobby Stiles’ doll collection, magazine editor Andy Lyons, writer Harry Pearson and host Daniel Gray discuss technological changes in the game, from crossbars to scoreboards via lethal rattles and referees’ kazoos. WSC Assistant Editor Ffion Thomas delves into the pages of magazine issue 423, Record Breakers brings tunes from Trondheim, and we continue our perky feature, The Final Third, in which a guest contributes a match, a player and an object to the WSC Museum of Football. Joining Dan as our visiting curator this time is Ian Plenderleith, long-time WSC writer and author of a brand new book, Reffing Hell: Stuck in the middle of a game gone wrong.

If you enjoyed this and would like more, you can sign up to the WSC Supporters’ Club for as little as £2 per month. There are great rewards, including bonus episodes, extended editions, badges, T-shirts and photo prints.
