We managed to get Professor Stefan Szymanski of City University, author and sports economist to come and say hello, and if that were not enough acumen for one night we also pulled of somewhat of a coup to get Steve Parish, CEO for Tag Worldwide and co-owner of Crystal Palace Football Club through the gates and into the studio as well. Well, we were impressed.
We covered football finances in pretty general terms and asked some pretty obvious questions about the day to day runnings of a football club. Actually, we just sat back and let our guests get on with it and had a rather good chat, as is the Cafe Calcio way.
David Stubbs aka Mr Agreeable aka Wing Commander aka Big Dave opened up proceedings with another of his fabulous pieces, this time on footballers wages and Chris Roberts let fly with another Galactico, Ebeneezer Cobb Morley. Details of this, and a rather splendid walk to find his grave are in post below
