We catch up with football writer Onur Bilgic to discuss football in the former Eastern Bloc, those countries under Soviet influence from 1945-91.

Why were Eastern European teams more successful in the European Cup-Winners' Cup than the European Cup (now Champions League)? Why did former Eastern Bloc national teams excel after the Iron Curtain came down?

Apologies for the sound quality, stick with it - the content is fascinating.
