Football Is Nice with Russell Brand

Football Is Nice with Russell Brand

By Russell Brand

Russell Brand talks about football and football culture from a deep, humorous and philosophical perspective and concludes that it is nice. Joined weekly by Gareth Roy and Jenny May Finn (with calls to other guests - in episode 1 Russell calls West Ham captain Mark Noble - who doesn't pick up) the beautiful game is used as thoroughfare and a platform for gentle insight and senseless musing.
