Simply the best

I’ve been an avid listener of the pod and a follower of both Ally and George on Twitter for a few years now. The knowledge and passion they have for the beautiful game is second to none! This pod helps me evaluate my bets for the weekend but more importantly have a clearer sense of craziness that is the EFL! Which I know all to well being a Charlton fan!

Keep going and ignore the foolish reviews

Quality Content

This podcast is a staple of my EFL diet and has only widened my breadth and depth of knowledge over the last few years. It’s great to listen to a thoughtful opinion on your club from an outside perspective. As someone who watches a lot of European football, it’s handy to have a trusted source to listen to on Leagues 1 and 2 when you don’t have the time to watch yourself. A brilliant podcast. Thanks chaps.

After listening to the guys debunk a negative review on the last show, I couldn’t believe someone took the time out to write such nonsense. The betting show is great bonus content that’s useful for anyone thinking about a bet at the weekend. All the necessary messages about gambling are conveyed. Has someone really complained about a podcast series - called ‘the betting show’ - gone out of their way to write a review about betting tips? Sometimes is not the rest of the world that’s the problem, it’s you’re own actions.

By far the greatest football podcast...

What Ali and George have done so brilliantly is change the face of Football League analysis.

Before NTT20, most UK media outlets viewed the Championship as an afterthought and almost totally ignored League One and League Two outside cliched ‘romance of the cup’ stories. Some still do.

But now fans have an alternative that is so nuanced and well-researched in its approach that these 2 pioneers have smashed through the glass ceiling of the country’s leading football broadcasters to actually become an essential part of their storytelling too.

That is an amazing achievement.

Ali and George are justifiably rising stars in the football media world but, to their credit, the quality of NTT20’s output has not waned.

The Monday pod remains essential listening for any fan who wants insight into the bigger picture and objective analysis of their club’s performance.

Clearly, they can’t watch every game so they rely on a community of trusted fans - along with data - to inform their opinions. The views of that community clearly craft the direction of all aspects of their content - which is so admirable.

They have also evolved into highly skilled producer/broadcasters in their own right.

As a lifelong fan of a football league club, I feel lucky they have chosen to utilize that expertise in a subject area that I care about.
