Simon Jordan, Ugo Ehiogu and Martin Allen guest on the Footballers' Football Show

Jordan, Ehiogu and Allen get to the bottom of things

Last Updated: 26/09/12 3:21pm

The Footballers' Football Show returns for another opinion-packed edition.

Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan, ex-England defender Ugo Ehiogu and Gillingham manager Martin Allen will be running the rule over the week's events.

On the agenda this week will be:

TERRY'S TIME UP: John Terry rocked the footballing world by announcing his retirement from international football. The subject of an ongoing FA enquiry into racial abuse allegations, the Chelsea defender called time on his England career at the age of 31. Terry has been the subject of controversy on many occasions, and cited the FA making his position 'untenable' as the reason behind his decision. England boss Roy Hodgson will have to fill the void quickly as he continues his World Cup 2014 qualifying campaign.

SIMON'S SIGNING: Simon Jordan will be lifting the lid on his recently-released book, 'Be Careful What You Wish For.' The controversial 44-year-old made his millions in the telecommunications business and fulfilled a dream by buying his childhood club Crystal Palace at the age of 33. A colourful period followed, and all will be unfolded from the horse's mouth in a no-holds-barred book that is certain to provide entertainment.

FAKING IT: A heated clash between Chelsea and Stoke on Saturday saw the subject of 'simulation' raise its ugly head again. Branislav Ivanovic was the main culprit - prompting Potters boss Tony Pulis to brand his attempts at winning penalties 'laughable.' There was also Danny Welbeck's questionable movements at Old Trafford in winning his side a spot kick against Wigan, and the panel will be discussing diving in the modern game and how best to employ it and/or combat it.

MONEY MATTERS: Financial fair play has always been a grey area in football, with the demise of big clubs such as Rangers exposing the problems. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has always refused to spend in excess of the club's income and champions the idea of football clubs 'self-sustaining' financially. Our trio of experts will be evaluating the future of football's money men, and Simon Jordan is sure to have his say.
