Zidane At The Crossroads

Hola! Well, well, well... what does last weekend's defeat at home to Villarreal mean for Real Madrid? More to the point, where does it leave manager Zinedine Zidane? That is the very question I answer in this podcast. Enjoy! Graham

Terry Gibson: How the Crazy Gang won the FA Cup

Hello Big Interview listeners! Well, you’ve been very patient, so here it is: Part Two of my Big Interview with Terry Gibson. And, I promise, it is well worth the wait. If you remember, at the end of Part One we left Terry after he had cut short an unfulfilling spell at Manchester United and signed for Wimbledon. We’ll pick up the story there, as Terry takes you inside that club and introduces you to the Crazy Gang. The chances are you’ll have heard of them, but Terry takes us beyond the...

In this extract, Robbie talks about taking over Chelsea in March 2012 after the sacking of Andre Villas Boas. Robbie describes the mixture of personalities as the most difficult dressing room he ever faced as a player or manager. But it held the key to unbelievable success.

The Big Interview Presents... Street Football

As we recorded Season Two of The Big Interview, one theme tended to stand out above all others: street football. It seemed as though every one of our guests was able to share a memory of being a kid kicking a ball about on the street outside their house, in a nearby field, or simply against the door of a shed so, clearly, we were left with no choice but to bring those childhood tales together and to create a clip show dedicated to street football. It is perhaps fitting that we begin with a...

The Clasico Report

Recorded on the final whistle at the Bernabeu, here's my take on where a record-breaking Clasico was won and lost - tactics, discipline, the graduation of Sergi Roberto, the extension of the reign of King Leo.

Countdown to the Clasico

Hola! Well, not long now until FC Barcelona arrive at the Bernabeu. Are you excited? I sure am. This is my take on what to expect from what is certain to be a captivating Clasico - from the chances of the FC Barcelona players giving their rivals a guard of honour, to who I expect to start the game. Oh, and I also piece together a composite Clasico XI. Enjoy! Graham

Terry Gibson: Bad Days with Big Ron and Falling Out with Fergie

Hello and welcome to another Big Interview! This time it's with Mr Terrence Gibson. Now, I know Terry well given that we have both covered Spanish football during our careers, with Terry having become a respected co-commentator for Sky Sports since his playing days ended. But I was delighted that, during the course of our chat, I was still able to learn from him. For example, in Part One of this Big Interview, Terry tells me about what - or who - scared him most when he was coming through...

Introducing... Between The Lines

The guys who produce The Big Interview (and also publish my books) have a new podcast out, starting today. This is me talking to them about it. If you enjoy my shows, this is definitely worth a listen - they talk to authors and journalists about the making of a great sport story. The first episode, featuring Rory Smith talking about his 10-months-in-the-making profile of the recovery from injury of Ilkay Gundogan, is out now.

Mourinho vs Guardiola: The Clasico Wars

Ahead of the Manchester derby, I spoke to Paolo Condo, author of THE DUELLISTS, a new book about the four Clasicos in 18 crazy days in 2011 that took Barcelona, Real Madrid and Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho to the edge. We were both on that unforgettable rollercoaster six years ago. This is us, talking about it.

The Big Interview Presents ... Captains

The Big Interview is pulling on the armband for our latest clip show, as we look back at a special group of players who cropped up a lot in Season Two: the manager’s representative on the pitch, the leaders of men, the captains. There was really no escaping the subject when we had Mark Noble on the podcast. The West Ham skipper first took us into the Hammers dressing room to reveal the nefarious method he uses to up the intensity at training, as well as the more subtle ways he gets more out...

The Big Inside View: Ghost Goals, Gaya and Messi Magic

Hola everyone! We gave Sunday night's top-of-the-table meeting between Valencia and FC Barcelona plenty of build-up ... and it didn't disappoint. I talk about the goal that wasn't given, Valencia's second-half resurgence and, of course, the genius intervention of a certain little Argentinian near the end. There's also my thoughts on ginger wigs ... seriously, you have to tune in. On a weekend when Real Madrid and Atleti both closed ground on leaders Barca, I reflect on their victories...

Martin Compston: Prince, Paolo and Gary Tank Commander

In Part Two of The Big Interview with actor Martin Compston, he takes us on to the set of the wonderful football film The Damned United, which tells the story of Brian Clough’s ill-fated spell in charge of Leeds. Martin, who plays striker John O’Hare in the film, is often fiercely critical of movies about football, but he explains why he thinks The Damned United gets it so right.
