Episode 5: England V Portugal – Euro 2004
The Clash of the Golden Generations For the Episode Five of The Football Rewind, pioneering broadcaster and voice of the Le Mans pit lane, Nick Daman, relives the extraordinary ninety minutes of the Euro 2004 Quarter Final in Lisbon between the hosts, Portugal and his England team. He would happily have relived the Extra Time and penalties too but he had to board a flight at Alicante Airport and he never saw them. This, as we discover, was a bit of a habit with the Gillingham-loving Nick. We also discover how and why he chose Gilingham FC over the glamour of Tottenham, Arsenal and any of the other London Clubs easily in reach from his home town.

Episode 4: Wigan Athletic win the FA Cup and get relegated in the space of 72 Hours
For the Fourth Episode of The Football Rewind, writer and author, Steve McKevitt relives the emotional roller coaster that was the three days in Mid-May 2013 which saw Wigan win the FA Cup and get relegated from the Premier League, making unwanted history in the process. We discover how a Merseyside-born Everton fan ended up supporting one of the least fashionable clubs in professional football and how he saw it transformed into a Premier League resident. We cover everything from the laughable amount of money required to take control of the club to the equally hilarious parade of dross that came through the clubs doors over the following two decades.

Episode 3: Match of the Day’s Goal of the Month, December 2006
Declan is joined by RTE’s Conor Wilson to pick a winner from the greatest collection of goals ever scored in one calendar month. Conor outlines some rather novel ways of following the big games, during the early years of Sky Sports, when he had no access to cable TV. We will hear the almost heart-warming tale of the goal that saved Christmas, while Declan will abuse his platform to lobby for Matty Taylor’s 45 yard effort to retroactively be anointed ‘Greatest goal of all time’.

Football writer and author, Steve Hill joins Declan to discuss the game and the unsung heroes of an absolutely extraordinary game.
