Episode 76: Great players turned bad managers, lodged footballs & guest Nick Barnes

Fashioning a goal from Mini Twiglets and asking a Jelly Baby to be keeper, magazine editor Andy Lyons, writer Harry Pearson and host Daniel Gray discuss great players who were terrible managers, from Jackie Milburn’s Ipswich to Gazza’s Kettering via Lothar Matthäus’ Cameroon canoodle problem. Record Breakers brings a ballad from Brann, and we continue our sprightly 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 BBC Newcastle’s Sunderland commentator, Nick Barnes.
