#29: Atalanta and Italian football culture

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 celebration of the return of The Artist Formerly Known As Concalcio, we’ve decided to talk about his favourite team (other than the mighty Bray Wanderers, obviously) Atalanta and Italian football culture, his raison d’etre.

We ask Conor how he even began supporting this provincial club from Bergamo, what makes it so special, the reasons for their recent surge these past few seasons, what makes Italian football good (and bad), why it’s different from British and Irish football, and the worst type of fans in the country he now calls home.

Yeah, this basically turned into an AMA with Conor.

We also discuss the four players that mean something to us, Colm’s adoration of the “high octane Lee Trundle”, otherwise known as Ronaldinho, classic football boots, retro video games and Ludo.

#26: The Best Premier League Titles Races Ever

What was the greatest title race of all time?

Was it 1996 when Manchester United and Newcastle United went head to head? Perhaps it was Arsenal overcoming an 11 point deficit in 1998 to win their first league title under Arsene Wenger? Or maybe it was Liverpool slipping up to Manchester City in 2014?
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.

#25: Christmas Selection Box

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from everyone at Nostalgia Ultras! To celebrate our first year as a podcast and somehow reaching 25 episodes, Ste McGovern and Colm Boohig bring you the first annual Christmas Selection Box.

Rather than focus on one subject as we usually do, we talked about a number of things for which we didn’t have to do any research, and for that, we are truly grateful this holiday season.

We each revealed our favourite Irish footballers of the Premier League era, talked about Ireland’s footballing diaspora, our favourite sports books of the year, some choice moments from our first few months in podcasting, and gave our unpopular opinions.
