We’re back with a new episode of the podcast and this time we’re talking about one of the most dominant teams in football history: Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona. I was delighted […]
Just like the bus, you wait ages for a Nostalgia Ultras podcast and two come along in quick succession. Well, quick for us anyway.
This is a special edition of the podcast, as it signals the return of the original trio: Ste McGovern, Colm Boohig and the immaculate emigrant himself, Conor Clancy.

In light of the insanely close battle between Liverpool and City for this year’s title, Ste McGovern, Peter Henry and Maurice Brosnan discuss some of the most entertaining, thrilling and dramatic title races over the years.
