Football based panel show Never Write Off The Germans runs on Radio 2 for the five weeks of the World Cup.

Never Write Off The Germans aims to separate the truth from the lies, the Terrys from the Bridges, and the Capellos from the Crapellos.

Christian O'Connell hosts this show devoted to the FIFA tournament, in which the resident 'home team' of Jon Richardson and Andy Parsons must challenge a different 'away team' every week.

Mixing proper World Cup news with idle gossip, there is something for everyone. One thing is for sure, though - with 32 teams, 64 matches and a minimum of 5,760 minutes of football, the World Cup is a constant source of success, failure, heart-ache and scandal, ensuring Never Write Off The Germans has more than enough material to sink its claws into.

NEWS: In 2012 it was announced that the series would be brought back as a podcast by Playback Media.
