Well a Ho Ho Ho and welcome to the 2018 Christmas special of the AFTN Soccer Show!
And this show was so long that we’ve had to split the podcast into two parts. This is part one and we’ll have part two for your aural pleasure on Christmas Day itself. What could be better than opening your presents and listening to the AFTN crew, as we bring you some football and Christmas chat, play some excellent Christmas tunes, and play some fun games?!
In this first part we’ll find out what Christmas is like in the Marc Dos Santos household, plus Canadian men’s national team head coach John Herdman tells us all about his plans for his usual “Geordie Christmas”.
Was Christmas better years ago? Was football? We debate all that, and former Whitecap, and current Canadian national team defender, David Edgar picks his favourite Christmas song and explains why that’s the case.
Plus we’ll being you Christmas tune from AFTN favourites Half Man Half Biscuit, Goldie Lookin’ Chain, Madhat McGore, Slaves and more. Have a listen!

12.10: Christmas with the Herdmans
22.21: Was Christmas better in the past? Was football?
40.18: David Edgar picks his Christmas favourite
