Sky hater ,

Great Show, But.....

..... PLEASE stop calling podcasts ‘pods’.

Woke soccer at it’s worst

But had to laugh when Barry glendenning swore he would never support Newcastle because of Saudi Arabia ... usual hypocrisy and virtue signalling for the small minded

Just such fun

Always loved Jimbo. Sad to see him go but Max has stepped up and put his own self effacing humor stamp on it. I think BG might steal the show a bit sometimes but it always works. I find I can listen to other podcasts.. dirty legs... and enjoy both... like chocolate ice cream or Honeycomb ice cream Both taste great to me.
I love the international feel and contributions from Europe which I don’t get from BBC etc
