You'll have heard Daniel Storey speaking on Monday's pod about how he's about to attend his first football match since March 2020. And while many of you will have returned to grounds for the new season or been to a match at Wembley over the summer, but for lots of us, the noise and energy of a full stadium and the build up to the game is a long distant memory. With that mind, in place of our Euro show this week, here's a special podcast accompanying George Caulkin's amazing piece called This is what football sounds like that recently went up on the Athletic.

Jimbo's back with the first Totally Football Show of the new season in the company of Daniel Storey, Duncan Alexander and Adam Crafton. One of the biggest transfers in football history is about to take place. Lionel Messi says bye-bye to Barcelona and is set to move to PSG. Jubilant Julien Laurens joins us as we discuss if this is a good thing for Ligue 1. And what does it mean for Mbappe? Jack Grealish joins Man City for £100million but he alone can't stop Leicester from winning the Community Shield. Is Grealish a problem solver for Pep or will he prove to be City's Veron? We ask who is best equipped to challenge City for the title this season. Chelsea with Lukaku? Liverpool with Van Dijk? United with Solskjaer under scrutiny? Plus there's the return of the EFL and the end of the Olympics.

Italy are European champions. Jimbo, Carl Anka, James Horncastle, Raphael Honigstein, David Preece and Daniel Storey review a wonderful night for the Azzurri but a heart-breaking night for England who lose on penalties at Wembley. Gareth Southgate's side take a very early lead but are pegged back and worn down by their opponent. Like the 2018 World Cup semi-final but worse. It's an inspirational group of players but in hindsight, did England throw this Euros away? And did they play that much football in the tournament? As for Italy, we salute a team that every other team made changes to their system for. And of course, they had the amazing Chiellini. The star of this Italy team and finally a European champion.

Roberto Mancini's Italy knock out the number 1 ranked team in the world in Belgium, in a performance that has everything. How have the Azzurri managed to put together this 32-game unbeaten run? And why wasn't Mancini more in demand? Spain are victorious on penalties against 10-man Switzerland but are hugely wasteful in front of goal again.

Elsewhere it's a big day for Denmark tomorrow as they play Belgium in Copenhagen. We speak with Danish commentator Niels Harild about the mood in the country.

Tuesday night brought us the good, the bad, and the possibly ugly as France beat Germany 1-0. We ask is this France instilling fear? Did Germany deserve a draw? And did Rudiger have a little nibble? Speaking of bites, over in Hungary our early evening entertainment, well it didn't get going until 80 minutes in but not even the clock can beat Cristiano Ronaldo from breaking records. Onto the next round then and it's all eyes on Italy who have really set a marker. Up next for them Switzerland who inspire an Orson Welles quote.

The Tartan Army's return to tournament football is an unhappy one as Patrick Schick inspires Czech Republic to victory from the halfway line. Did Scotland prove they are genuinely unlucky? Or are they just not clinical enough? Sweden channel their inner Palace to stifle Spain and draw 0-0 in Seville. Alexander Isak looks the real deal, Alvaro Morata – not so much. Slovakia overcome Poland who continue to struggle for goals at major tournaments, even with Lewandowski.
