Episode 1580: Pep Helps Bernardo, A Nations League Once Again, German Mentality, Italian Underworld
Today’s show contains all the meat of the football stew. From Ireland’s nations league resurrection, to Pep’s unhelpful help with the Bernardo situation, to the mentality wars in Germany, to Rocky on the school syllabus.
We talk to Tobias Jones about his book “Ultra: The Underworld of Italian Football” – which traces the evolution of Italy’s ultra movement from its origins in the 1960s to the present day.
Plus there’s Second Captains Jitterbug week, Brutus the Barber Beefcake and our old pal “hunger”.

We hear from @MiguelDelaney about his experience of covering Liverpool’s loss to Napoli at the San Paolo Stadium, in a city where the Champions League experience, while perhaps less corporate, can bring with it a threat to the safety of travelling fanshttps://t.co/stSgcVIpaw pic.twitter.com/mFb4nVo5iz
