The legend of Socrates' final game in England

It was mayhem at Garforth Town on a freezing day in november 2004. The stands of the little club were packed. Hundreds of people were still trying to get in. Media from all over England traveled to this non-league team, to cover what was happening there. Because this little club, Garforth Town, managed to sign the Brazilian football legend Socrates. And he was about to make his debut for the club, as a 50 year old.


It would be one of Socrates' last big adventures, before he tragically passed away. In this episode of our podcast we reconstruct the story of the time the Brazilian football legend Socrates turned up at Garforth Town in England. It?s a bittersweet story about a Brazilian military dictatorship, a pink dressing room, a revolution, beer, cigarettes and a struggle to find purpose in life.

When Real Madrid signed Julien Faubert

Some say this was the most surprising transfer in the history of football. This story starts in the 2009 January transfer window, at West Ham United. The players are on the team bus, on their way to Fulham for a game in the Premier League, when a mobile phone rings. Julien Faubert, one of the West Ham players, picks up his phone. On the other end of the line is a Frenchman, who says he works for Real Madrid. This man tells Faubert that Real Madrid wants to sign him. But Faubert feels like this isn?t serious, like someone is trying to prank him, so he says he doesn?t want to be bothered. He has a game to play. He switches off his phone.


After the game, Faubert switches his phone back on. He has 40 text messages and a couple of missed calls from his agent. Real Madrid really wants to sign him, and they have to hurry up, because the transfer deadline is rapidly approaching. 


In this episode of our podcast we tell the amazing story of a man who was born in poverty in a French harbor, and ended up making one of the most unexpected transfers in the history of football. This is the crazy story of Julien Faubert and his transfer to Real Madrid. It?s a story about frantic phone calls on deadline day, playing with a ballon d?or winner, being wrongly framed by the media, and finding peace in the south of France.

Mario Götze's unexpected journey to PSV

This story starts in a small cafeteria in the Netherlands on October 6th. The final day of the extended summer transfer window of 2020. On that day Chris Rooijakkers is preparing snacks in his cafeteria, two blocks away from the PSV stadium in the Dutch city of Eindhoven. Chris has short grey hair and has been preparing snacks for decades. It?s dinner time on October 6th, so Chris is quietly frying some fries. When he looks up for a moment, he sees a massive Mercedes SUV parked in the street in front of his cafeteria. Chris is a fanatic PSV Eindhoven fan, so he decides to walk past the car to take a look. You never know, maybe a new PSV player is inside.


Chris sees some men sitting inside the car, but he doesn?t get a clear view. So he asks his thirteen year old daughter Lyndi if she can sneak up to the car and take some pictures. She is nervous, but decides to give it a go. She walks past the car as well, but doesn?t get a clear picture. She decides to give it another try, this time riding her bicycle. When she returns to the cafeteria, she shows her father the pictures she has taken. They can see a person sitting shotgun in the car. They zoom in on his face and can?t believe what they see. Could it be that the man who decided the 2014 World Cup final in Brazil was about to sign for their favourite football team?


This episode of our podcast is about the day Mario Götze shocked the world, by signing a two year deal at PSV Eindhoven as a free agent. Götze could have signed for several top clubs in Italy. Bayern Munich was even trying to get him to come back. And he had some lucrative offers from countries like the United States. But Götze decided to sign for PSV in The Netherlands. We spoke to the PSV fans who first found out this was happening, and Mario Götze himself, to find out how and why he signed for PSV Eindhoven. Host: Sam van Raalte.
