Shoot The Defence is one of those football podcasts you either love or hate. We don't use words like "banter" or yell and scream over each other (unlike other pods). Our content may not be to everyone's liking and the things we say may cause offence.

However. For a podcast without ANY financial backing and through the power of respect, integrity and realness (it's a word - honest), we've had a vast amount of incredible guests on the show.

Don't believe us? Here's a list...

Sunday Oliseh - Juventus, Ajax, Dortmund & Nigeria Stelios Giannakopoulos - Bolton & Greece Kostas Katsouranis - Benfica & Greece Benito Carbone - Aston Villa, Inter Milan & Sheffield Wednesday Marcus Gayle - Wimbledon, Rangers, Brentford & Jamaica Tony Bellew - ex WBC cruiserweight champion Paul Parker - Manchester United & England

and many more!!

The show is often hosted by Stel, Rhodri Giggs (and anyone else who we can get at short notice), and is also home to the very controversial - but hilarious - Knight Vision, aka #KV, hosted by former Chelsea, Brighton and Swansea striker Leon Knight.

Shoot The Defence is also the only place you can hear The Late Fitness Test with Ben Dinnery and Johnny Wilson! Each week, we provide the latest injury news for Premier League clubs - which is perfect for all Fantasy Football enthusiasts.

Our platform isn't solely football related. Whilst we have added the UkrFUT24 podcast: an Eastern European review show, recent additions include the 108 Harley Street Podcast and Shoot The Takedown - a MUST for MMA fans.

Late Fitness Test

A really insightful podcast. An excellent resource for fantasy football or for those wanting a more in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at injury management and the factors which influence a return-to-play. Team news, stats, informed opinion, a great listen.... 👏
