@jonnygould ,

Love this podcast

Firstly, they had me as their first guest, secondly I’d heard of it anyway. Now I’m a bang on fan. Love the theme of the discussions and it’s a hark back to the days when football ascended out of the echo chamber into the mainstream. Even you’re auntie who also said she hated football had to mention Gazza or Beckham somehow!

Well done James and James.

Excellent podcast!

Great to hear some informed opinions and fantastic banter on some of the classic football debated topics between all fans. Loved the interviews and personal favourite was the insight into life of a pro with Marc millar. Brilliant!

Like a chat down the socially distanced pub with your mates

I wanted to listen to all available episodes before writing a review. I could resonate with all the topics so far and long may that continue. I’ve really enjoyed listening to the points of views, different aspects of the game you would normally debate with your mates and the recent two parter of the life of a pro was very interesting and insightful. All have been enjoyable listens so that ms for taking the time. Can’t wait to see what you guys have in your locker for the near future. Keep it up James Squared 😂😂...oh and how are those ratings in Brazil going??
