    Former A League and now NPL coach in Melbourne Scott Miller joins Adam Peacock to discuss how greatly COVID has affected football in Australia, and in particular, the footballers!

Mangoryand ,

Great insight and good to listen to

Always great insight into the a league over the years, as well as the world. Great variety of programs too, the review (Simon needs to let VAR grudge go, it’s not going anyway unfortunately, but great for bringing a perspective/context to garb’s claims and generally), Adam’s player interviews (so good, keep them coming), but need to bring back the bald cast! Thanks guys for the great discussions over the years and please keep them coming!
