S2 Ep8: The Maddest Transfers of the 2000s: Figo, Faubert, Tevez, Masch & More

Rich Williams, Mark Holmes and Pete Farries are joined by former footballer turned broadcaster Martin Gritton to remember some of the maddest transfers of the 2000s.

From the ones that made you say WTF? to those that were just plain dodgy, the lads chat Figo, Faubert, Goram and, along with many others, Tevez and Mascherano.

With Corona Virus keeping everyone home, The Broken Metatarsal will be taking a (hopefully) short break, and will be back with you later in the year.
