Sound of Football Podcast 469 - It's still a funny old game

Jimmy Greaves was the greatest goal-scorer England has produced but for many people he's most readily remembered as the comedy sidekick to Ian St John on ITV's Saturday lunchtime football show Saint & Greavsie. In celebration of his life and careers, this week we look at the lasting legacy of a show that was a cornerstone of 1980s football conversation.

Also this week we discuss the plans to carry out pilot events at Premier League grounds that will introduce safe-standing to the top flight in England. How could the appointment of the new minister for Culture and Sport, Nadine Dorries, affect the plans?
