Podcast: The transfer window and how managers deal with pressure in football – Danny’s Diary #1

In a new, and all being well, weekly, podcast, Gareth Roberts is joined on the phone by former Premier League manager Danny Wilson to sift through the week’s football issues and get an update on Danny’s new role as agent and head of player care at The Fans Agency.

This week, in the first episode of Danny’s Diary, the transfer window is top of the agenda. Figures show spending was down for Premier League clubs – both on deadline day and in the window in general. Why is that? And how difficult is to buy (and sell) in the January window as opposed to the summer?

With both Manchester City and Liverpool dropping points in the title race this week, Danny and Gareth also discuss pressure and stress in football. How much does it get to players and managers? Can it affect decision-making? And how much did Danny – who managed in more than 1,000 games – cope with it?

Danny also lifts the lid on what work at The Fans Agency has involved this week – and how the company is continuing to develop. Listen on iTunes HERE.
