5: The Golden Generation: From Germany Joy to Penalty Pain

Rich Williams, Mark Holmes and Rob Conlon are joined by Crystal Palace fan and comedian Chloe Petts to remember the highs and lows of Sven-Goran Eriksson's England reign.

Paul Konchesky joins on the phone to reveal his own joy at getting to see a wonderful group of players close up and give some insight into what the England camp was like back then, including some pretty firm rules on leaving the dinner table.
As always, we finish with another edition of Football Fact or Fiction in which Rich tries to guess which of the many glorious stories about that era is true.
