Arrogant, self-indulgent nonsense
A once great pod that has rapidly deteriorated. Some of the guests like Jonathan Wilson are unlistenable because they are so self indulgent. Really a shame how far this has fallen.
Footie with a brain
The Football Weekly covers all the things you want in a standard footie podcast, with the tone being thoughtful and wry. Barry wraps his heart of gold in a curmudgeonly and borderline alcoholic covering, and Max is a great host (although his picture does look like Strictly judge Anton Du Beke, his hosting is not similar). The other guests all bring a unique perspective to a particular facet of football and are (almost) all worth listening to. If you are going to listen to one footie podcast, make it this one.
