“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.
Dave and Seb return – minus an absent-at-the-last-minute Denis – to tackle When Saturday Comes, a 1990s football film that some people remember quite fondly. Spoilers: we aren’t among them. We discuss Sean “Y’Bastard!” Bean, terrible Oirish accents, unrealistic-looking Premier League players, stereotypical depictions of Sheffield, and… Highlander?
