TalkSport it isn’t! (Thank goodness)

An informative and interesting football podcast that cuts out the inane tomfoolery so prevalent on mainstream outlets these days.
The interviews are level-headed, the topics current and relevant. This is always worth a listen.

Excellent

This is a must for any football fan of whatever persuasion. Sensible discussions and the in depth interviews with players or managers are very insightful.

Not the usual rubbish

Really informative and I love Mike. I like the new format too, I’ve listened for years so it’s keeping things fresh.
