World class

I’m so glad that I came across the world football phone in! Perfect combination of banter and football insight with a global perspective. Tim Vickery is the best football pundit out there—sheer class. Dotun is also a legend and anchors the show perfectly. Keep up the great work

Bring back the expert panelist’s please!

This show has always been an education with Tim (who remains the strongest part of the show) and a second regional panellist who could answer pretty much any question regarding their region and often beyond.

The newer format of “super fans” or Mark M has meant this is now diminished. Although it’s nice to have these individuals included it shouldn’t be to the detriment of a expert 2nd panellist. The super fans can continue to be knowledgable callers. Unlike a number of exhibitionists who now call to have their rather loud voices heard.

Such a shame as currently the show is declining by the week.

The global football podcast featuring Tim, Jonny D, Mark Gleason and John Arnold is now the go to listen for all things world football.

Too much self-indulgence from Dotun and Tim since going longer

There are many random diversions into singing or joking about random things weekly and self-indulgent behaviour from Dotun and Tim that it badly affects the quality of the podcast.

They could easily give the half-hour or so of the pointless banter they partake in weekly to their callers and emailers but they don’t.

Very disappointing as I would have given this show five stars pre-coronavirus.
