The Halcyon Podcast Episode 5 - John Nicholson

Adam and Rob are joined by the multi-talented John Nicholson to talk about Middlesbrough's famous UEFA Cup run, in which Boro saw off a litany of big European names with a litany of big European comebacks.

 We talk to John about what's happened to football in the age of the Premier League, where the soul of the game is hiding these days and how we once wrote a very prescient article about Alan Pardew.

John also share some insights from his journey into writing both football and non-football titles, and nominates a nearly man for the XI. Unfortunately we don't get time to talk about Eddie van Halen, but we'll do that next time.

John's books, in particular Can we have our football back? and Can we have our football back yet? can be found at

And, as ever, you can get From the Jaws of Victory from us at the Halcyon Publishing website, and follow/chat to us on Twitter @magicspongers and @HalcyonPublish1
