Great podcast, except weekend preview

Really great pod, with interesting guests and great content. Unfortunately I have to avoid the weekend preview which is peppered with betting odds throughout from a Bet 365 representative. There’s plenty of gambling advertising in football, but this takes it to a new level (to the Friday pod’s detriment).

Great!

The best football review/comment platform out there. Impartial, detailed and precise of the opinions the panel. So many trash out there and these guys are a breath of fresh air. Keep up with the good work lads!

Ian Wright episode

Don’t advertise “Ian Wright” if he’s not on the f’ing show!
