The Football 7-Dayer Podcast EP10: England's Best B Team
The Boar Sport's Football 7-Dayer Podcast is back with a slightly different topic this week, as we debate the best England B-team, from the Three Lions' first ever game in 1872 through to the present day. The criteria are simple - if you have only five caps or less for England, you are eligible. Does Aaron Ramsdale deserve a place? Why is Martin 'Big Dobbo' Dobson anchoring the midfield? Why is Fred 'Boomer' Pickering keeping Chris Sutton out of the team? It was heated and controversial, but have we got our team right? Is there anyone that we've missed out?

The Football 7-Dayer Podcast EP8: Liverpool win the Carabao Cup, are Everton going down?
The League Cup final was the main talking point of this week's Football 7-Dayer Podcast, hosted by Toby Farmer. Liverpool were the ultimate victors, but did they really deserve it, after a number of controversial refereeing decisions. The same debate was raging on the other side of Liverpool, as Everton felt aggrieved at a poor refereeing decision after a Rodri handball should have led to a penalty. Footballing sanctions on Russia, Burnley's resurgence, and Graham Potter were also on the agenda. Interested in writing for The Boar Sport? Join our writers' group, here.

The Super Bowl 56 Preview: Cincinnati Bengals vs Los Angeles Rams
Two young coaches, two hungry teams, two elite quarterbacks and one Lombardi Trophy. It’s about leaving a legacy and making history, and both sides are hungry for it. It’s Super Bowl 56. Sam Matthews Boehmer and Curtis Leung take you through all the key talking points as these two teams, that no one expected to be challenging at the start of the year, take each other on at the So-Fi Stadium. The Bengals are the underdogs, but can their unity and passionate fanbase drag them over the line, or will the 'new money' LA Rams have something to say about that...

Beckenbauer or Moore? Zidane or Iniesta? Cruyff or Cristiano Ronaldo? Ferguson or Guardiola?  Disagree with our team?
