Back for season two, under new management, a new name, and a change in formation, it's Telegraph Audio Football Club, or AFC Telegraph for short. Thom Gibbs, Mina Rzouki, Matt Law and JJ Bull are here to guide you through the opening weekend of the Premier League season, as well as highlight some of the features you may have missed. On this week's episode we ask whether Unai Emery and Maurizio Sarri fit in at their respective clubs Arsenal and Chelsea, and how long it will take a new philosophy to work in London. We analyse N'Golo Kante's positional change and why he is the most important player for the Blues. Plus, we ask what the optimum number of transfers is for clubs trying to make a go of it in the top flight. And, crucially the star of the footballing weekend: a silly goose. iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/id1266640345 Android - http://totalfootball.telegraph.co.uk/feed/ (link must be pasted into a podcast app) Online … [Read more...] about Telegraph Audio Football Club podcast: Do Unai Emery and Maurizio Sarri look out of place at Arsenal and Chelsea?

North London rivals Spurs overtook Chelsea as the second most expensive club after a £100 hike to £795. And newly promoted Wolves raised their cheapest season tickets by £125 to £509 – up 32.5 per cent. TV and sponsorship deals have diminished the importance of gate receipts as clubs no longer need supporters’ cash to pay players’ wages. Sky, BT and Amazon are paying for domestic rights to the Premier League in a three-year deal from 2019 to 2022. The Football Supporters Federation said: “The … [Read more...] about Outrage as nine Premier League football clubs hike up season ticket prices

The sound system, which was essential to the event, did … [Read more...] about Recorder letters: Armed Forces Day, red card, Woodford Town Football Club, Loxford Park and critical care beds
