Event Details

Football Weekly Live returns to the stage to give its alternative take on the world of football. Hosted at the Royal College of Music in Manchester on 10 September, Max Rushden will be joined by Barry Glendenning, Jonathan Wilson and Lars Sivertsen.

Max Rushden

Going into the third season at the helm of Football Weekly, Max is entering the Mourinho Meltdown Zone - he'll have lost the dressing room by Christmas. Make sure you catch him live before it all goes wrong.

Barry Glendenning

If Max is Mourinho, Barry will be the Marco Materazzi, holding onto him tearfully in an Italian car park. Barry's spent part of the summer break brushing up on his knowledge of the reproductive process of hedgehogs.

Jonathan Wilson

Wilson Productions is currently in negotiations with Guardian bigwigs for the book rights, but the length is a sticking point, with Jonathan unwilling to turn in anything below 600,000 words (13,000 more than War and Peace).

Lars Sivertsen

Lars is waiting in the wings, as the mandatory challenger for the role of podcast host. He's practicing for the opportunity by establishing a regular 15-minute podcast on football in Norwegian, so go and listen to it, if you understand Norwegian.


This event is in collaboration with the Football Writing Festival, which brings top writers and publications onside, for hours of lively debate spread across six weeknights.

Running time: 120 minutes, 15-minute interval.

Wheelchair users and visitors who require an assistant may bring a companion free of charge. To book a free companion ticket please email
