Barney Ronay is a senior sports writer for the Guardian and a regular contributor to When Saturday Comes. In this edition of the EPL Talk podcast, I pick up when we left off the last time Barney was on the program, talking about the state of the manager in the English game. Barney, who wrote The Manager, talks about the increased use of the continental model and reflects on Mark Hughes’ time at Manchester City.
Barney also discussed:
a.) the use of humor in his writing,
b.) the differences between print and web content,
c.) modern coverage of hooliganism,
d.) hooliganism and English football culture,
e.) the state of English club finances,
f.) his view on the race at the top of the Premiership.
