“Beyond the touchline, there is nothing.” With respect to Jacques Derrida, we disagree.
Beyond the Touchline is a football podcast that’s not actually about football. Every episode, David Hartrick, Seb Patrick and Denis Hurley will look at a different aspect of football culture – the movies, TV, books, comics, games, toys and other paraphernalia and ephemera that tell the stories of the game we love.
On the eve of real football returning, we sneak in our look back at some fictional football we spent some of the intervening period watching: the classic Nickelodeon sitcom Renford Rejects. Just one small snag: it turns out it wasn’t actually very good. Join us as we thoroughly slaughter one of the sacred cows of the generation slightly after our own – but can we get Dave to find one good thing he liked about it?
