In this exclusive WSC Supporters’ Club edition of the podcast, magazine editor Andy Lyons, writer Harry Pearson and host Daniel Gray binge on Elizabeth Shaw liqueur chocolates and talk Unheralded Derbies, from seldom played clashes to unrequited hate via Stilton United versus Cheddar FC. There is discussion of which activities should fill the gaps in Covid-hit episodes of Match of the Day, including Danny Murphy’s glockenspiel analysis. Record Breakers brings punk from Freiberg, and we continue our nearly new 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 the editor of Blackburn Rovers fanzine 4,000 Holes, Scott Sumner.

Supping sarsaparilla from a dirty glass, magazine editor Andy Lyons, writer Harry Pearson and host Daniel Gray think outside the bin cupboard to talk Alternative World Cups from the CONIFA to the Island Games via the Mundiavocat. WSC Deputy Editor Tom Hocking talks us through the pages of magazine edition 416, including Maoist reform of the Premier League, refereeing crises and a trip to Arbroath. Record Breakers brings rabble-rousing from Rotterdam, and we continue our almost brand new 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 ace WSC writer, Cameron Carter.
