During Brendan Rodgers’ final, full season in charge of Liverpool, a rumour did the rounds suggesting he had started listening to podcasts made by the club’s supporters. Results were going badly and as criticism http://www.officialwarriorsteamshop.com/Authentic-Damian-Jones-Jersey of the manager and his players rose, Rodgers, it was said, became increasingly keen to know what those who watched the team week in, week out were thinking and so turned to the likes of Anfield Index and The Anfield Wrap to find out. Nike Ryan Smith Women's Red Limited Jersey: #29 NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers Rush Vapor Untouchable The rumour was never confirmed or denied but it is telling that it could Malik Jackson Youth jersey be true – partly because Rodgers comes across as the type of man who would want to know what others think about him and partly because it reflects the growing strength and influence of football podcasts. Women's Muggsy Bogues Swingman Teal Nike Jordan Jersey: NBA Charlotte Hornets #1 Icon Edition Once the domain of a small number of amateur broadcasters, podcasts are now, to borrow Chorley FM’s catchphrase, “coming Chris Jones Jersey in your ears” from a range of sources. Fans, former players, journalists and pundits are all getting in on the act and for an increasing number of people, ‘pods’ have become the destination for football discourse, which in turn has allowed some of those involved to turn what started out as a hobby into a full-time profession. In part this reflects the boom of podcasts in general, fuelled by an improvement in the quality of available recording equipment as well as the ease with which people can, for free, download and listen to shows ranging from true-crime stories (Casefile) to the diary entry of a teenage girl growing up in a historic market town (Berkhamsted Revisited). “The majority of our listeners come through iTunes and our listening figures continue to grow year on year,” says Jon Teague, executive producer of The Football Ramble, which started in 2007 and has gone on to Brandon Tanev Jersey become a well-established, twice-weekly show. “That growth is encouraging as the market is now incredibly saturated.” “There wasn’t a scene to speak of in 2007; most people didn’t even know what a podcast was back then. And we had no specific purpose for starting the Ramble – we liked talking about football and having a laugh and thought it would be fun to combine the two.” It is that sense of fun, emanating from the Ramble’s http://www.officialcelticsproshop.com/Gordon_Hayward_Jersey on-air team of Marcus Speller, Luke Moore, Jim Campbell and Pete Donaldson, which explains why it has thrived having been part of the initial wave of football podcasts that included the Guardian’s award-winning Football Weekly. Both proved football fans like listening to other football fans talk about football and thus inspired the creation of similar shows. http://www.authentichurricanestore.com/-29-bryan-bickell-jersey_c-454.html Yet, as Teague has observed, there have been as many failures as successes. “While the barriers to recording and releasing a podcast are pretty much non-existent, the barriers to producing listenable content and getting it discovered by an audience are significant,” he says. “If you’re looking to compete in a crowded marketplace, you need to make sure your offering is a compelling enough pitch. It’s not enough these days to sit a few heads in a room and have them talk football.” The broad-ranging, talking-heads format remains popular, as seen by the popularity of podcasts such as Second Captains, but Teague is right in suggesting that with increased competition comes Authentic Michael Schofield Jersey a greater need for ‘podders’ to nail down a niche. Hence the success of club-specific pods, such as AI and TAW, as well as those that tackle specific subjects, such as The No 1 Podcast, which focuses exclusively on goalkeeping. Then there are podcasts which tap into people’s love of nostalgia, among the best examples of which right now is Quickly Kevin, Will He Score? Hosted by Chris Scull, Josh Widdicombe and Michael Marden, it provides a weekly reminder of football in the 1990s through a mix of interviews, discussions and correspondents. Highlights have included Paul Merson recounting the time Alexi Lalas sung to him in a hotel lobby and a Norwich fan emailing in to accuse Efan Ekoku of stealing his Drifter bar during a school trip to Carrow Road. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys from china cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys
