Well it felt good to get back in the studio. Paolo’s (or Di Fanti’s) transfer activity dictated the need for a pre-season podcast, writes Stephen Goldsmith.

Every time Gareth an I go for a “production meeting” we end up in the pub discussing all sorts and everything, whether it be podcast related or not. It certainly beats some of the work meetings I’ve had over the years. What we did manage to decide was that at least one pre-season podcast was to be aired and that we’d go try get a specific journalist we had in mind to share his knowledge of the new players with us. Not only did he agree within minutes, he was as good as anyone has been thus far, if not better. Since EVERY guest we’ve had has been brilliant, it shows how highly we valued his input. I’m still waiting for one of the Salut! writers to come on. Any time.
So, that man was Kristan Heneage, a sports writer for ESPN and The New York Times amongst many others. As well as covering Sunderland and Newcastle for ESPN, Kristan is a bit of an expert when it comes to European football, South American football and football in the United States. A “lazy journalist” he certainly is not.
For anybody who wants to more about our players, this is a MUST listen.
