Episode 5: A Strangely Large Number of Argentinians

Delayed by a few days due to Chris being unwell (altogether now - ahhhh...), Chris & Gary Talk Sport returns with a special guest in the form of fellow British emigree, Damon Threadgold.

And the main topic this time around is the state of regional football in New Zealand and Australia. Look below the level of the A League or New Zealand Premiership, and what do you find? Is football in good health on a local level down under, and if not, what's likely to improve its profile?

There then follows a discussion on the post-season Finals Series format that's so popular in Australia as well as a growing number of places around the world. As Brits, are we a bit long in the tooth for this alternative way of finishing a league season, and most importantly of all, could it improve the Scottish Premiership?

Finally, with only a matter of weeks to go until the 2017-18 Ashes Test series in Australia, there's a look at how well the two competing sides could do, not to mention the key personnel that could make all the difference in the classic battle to win that little urn. You can't see the join, folks, which is more than can be said for some of the editing that was required to iron out the technical glitches caused by Google Hangouts on Air during recording. Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Listen to Episode 5 here, on SoundCloud and on iTunes.
