End of Season Special - AFR Voice, Ep. 20
It’s over. It’s over for another season. But as the transfer window gets wrenched open, the managerial merry-go-round starts to gain momentum, and the last of the champagne-drenched Bayern Munich and Crystal Palace players get scraped up from the Wembley turf, AFR Voice is back one last time to get under the skin of the weekend’s action.
We start off with none other than club football’s showpiece event – the UEFA Champions League Final. Tune in for extensive audio from the pod’s roving reporters, Paddy and Alex, soaking up the pre-game atmosphere in Piccadilly Circus, before delving into the future of football courtesy of the Adidas Lab where we got chatting to some of AFR’s finest about technology and just where the game is going. We’ve also got a chat with journalist and Bundesliga expert Archie Rhind-Tutt to give us his take on the final and what the future holds for both Dortmund and Bayern.
Then it’s off to possibly the most lucrative game in world football where Crystal Palace were triumphant over Watford in the Championship play-off final, earning themselves enough money to buy a small country in the process. But just for how long will the party last? And what are they going to do with all that cash?
To finish off, we’ve got a roundup of what else has been going on outside of North London– Monaco making big (bank) statements in the transfer market, more heartbreak for Benfica, the US Open Cup third round, and a fight for the final Champions League spot in a La Liga campaign that doesn’t show any sign of finishing until about mid-August.
And with that, we are done. Many thanks to everyone for listening, tweeting and emailing throughout the season – we massively appreciate your involvement, and we’ll catch you soon!
