Midnight Caller is where we grab people to talk about issues across general football which have caught our eye. It can be anything, from the rise of China to the threat of B-Teams in English football. It is simply finding someone who knows their stuff to talk with us about their knowledge and leave us all that little bit smarter about the game we obsess over.

John Gibbons and Gareth Roberts are joined at midnight by the Lancashire Telegraph’s Paul Wheelock to talk about the fall and fall and Blackburn Rovers, chickens on the pitch and the Venky family.
