Broadway To Brazil
About This Show
We are telling the fascinating story of Corinthian-Casuals, last year’s Bostik League South playoff finalists and a club with an extraordinary tale.
The Broadway to Brazil podcast team are speaking with players, supporters, coaches, historians, writers, commentators, and general eccentrics associated with the club. They will be looking at the origins of a club that once was one of the country’s most famous – still the only side to have provided the entire XI for an England line up – all while following the modern incarnation’s fortunes this season.
How is it that Corinthians still hold the record for Manchester United’s biggest defeat, and were once considered the game’s first global superstars?
What is their connection with Real Madrid?
And why on earth are they so loved in Brazil?

Episode 03 sees the Broadway to Brazil team step away from the fascinating history of the Corinthian-Casuals, and peer into the no less interesting plight of the current squad. For in recent years the first team - led by charismatic manager James Bracken - have been defying the odds and vying for promotion from the Bostik South Division, despite the fact that they do not a penny to their players, unlike almost all of their peers. As well as charting the short yet success-ridden coaching career of Bracken thus far, including two recent heartbreaking seasons at the Casuals, B2B speaks to players past and present to try and establish just what it is that has enabled the young coach to propel the team up the league. Meanwhile former England international and Premier League footballer Stan Collymore makes an appearance and offers his thoughts on these amateur achievements, as the Casuals vie for that elusive promotion in 2017/18 after two hugely unlucky recent attempts.
