I would recommend this podcast and enjoyed listening on my commute to work this year.

Positives
- Good balance of views and engaging challenge between presenters - on a lot of other podcasts I do detect a lot of pundits are 'waiting to talk' rather than listening to other's views. This is generally not the case here.
- Very well chaired by Thom - in addition to a nice light hearted style without over stepping into distracting comedy. Thom applies structure well whilst letting his guests speak and inputs also his own views. Being of a similar age I also happen to like the periodic mid to late 90's / 2000s references he often makes.

Areas to improve
- tactical analysis sometimes drifts into overly simplistic and genralised 'football manager' style observations that aren't always substantiated. Possibly given the shorter format of this pod. I used to like hearing JJ's favourite goals of the week from a tactical perspective, so it shows he does know what he's talking about, just need to ensure this is applied consistently.
- having a wider group of core guests and pundits would keep things fresh - most notably including some ex-pros too.
- I personally would either bring in some European features, or remove them entirely as a 2 minute summary at the end by mina, although eloquent, doesn't add value to the overall product.

Just discovered this show and it’s gone to the top of my (probably too many) regular football podcast listens

My favourite football podcast

Swerves the puns and in-jokes of EVERY other football podcast but still keeps things light and entertaining while being really insightful on the beautiful game
