45. The Last Champions: Dave Simpson
Speakers: Dave Simpson
Guardian journalist Dave Simpson discusses his revelatory exploration of Leeds United and the glory years of the 1990s. After 1992, he argues, football changed beyond all recognition as the Premier League saw sky-rocketing wages and billionaire owners and the dictates of television took the game away from the fans. Today Simpson reveals the secrets of the inner sanctum that delivered that extraordinary title and explores whether football is now so disenfranchised from supporters that it has lost its soul.
