Play • 56 min
Jermain Defoe sits down with Dharmesh Sheth to reveal all on the moves that he did and didn’t make during his career. The striker discusses his early beginnings, Harry Redknapp’s role in his controversial move from Charlton to West Ham and working with his childhood idol at the east London club. Defoe opens up on the infamous transfer request handed in 24 hours after West Ham’s relegation and reveals the truth behind what led up to it. He discusses his move to Tottenham, how he ended up linking up with his ‘dad in football’, Redknapp, at Portsmouth and deciding against a big switch to Serie A to re-join Spurs. Defoe explains the reasons behind his move to the MLS with Toronto and why he cut it short to return to the Premier League. He also reveals the Rangers legend that helped convince him to move to Ibrox and how he feels as his career enters its latter years.

Ranking Post-Lockdown Football Dreams
On Monday, the UK announced its roadmap towards a world without lockdowns, a world which screams to us - full stadiums and football as we love it. It's not quite a global movement yet, but a glut of vaccines means that wherever you are, it feels like the moment is coming where we can look to an open sky once more. Never again will we take a trip to a new ground or to see the players we love, for granted. With all that in mind, we thought we'd talk about our post-lockdown football dreams and what they might be like - and there's a lot going on here. From VAR decisions we don't understand to train journeys around the country; from trips abroad to stadiums we're gasping to experience to shared moments with our mates; seeing unique players in the flesh and enjoying a sense of community wherever you're watching the game. These are what we can't wait for, but we hope they'll inspire your own dreams about the beautiful game as well. In a particularly harmonious episode, Things We Love covers the Fantasy PL leak that has wound up Aston Villa, Bayern-conquering Eintracht Frankfurt's march into the top four, and the record of Villarreal's Gerard Moreno, who NEEDS to be on the plane in Spain's squad for EURO 2020 (2021). There's a Melon of the Week too, and Sam ranks things that should be easy, but are actually hard - ending in a lesson on how not to whistle. It's Ranks!   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
