Lone Ranger

Most of the FPL podcasts work well due to the interaction and banter between the co-hosts. As a lone presenter, I feel Mark is at something of a disadvantage in that respect, but he is an excellent presenter and it has not been to his detriment. Podcasts are succinct, which I like, and I enjoy the format. Along with the FPL Wire, the Green Arrow, and FPL Optmized, this is excellent listening for FPL managers.

Favourite FPL Pod

I’ve listened to quite a few different FPL pods over the last 3 years and I find Mark provides the best content out there. Clear and concise info that helps you make your own informed decisions. Listening helps keep me level headed and it stops me from making too many rash decisions. I highly recommend the pod, keep up the good work Mark!

Calm, concise, compelling.

The General’s podcast is the best there is. He has a method for playing the game which is so helpful, so calm and consistent that you end up having more fun as an FPL player. The content is always brilliant - never a wasted minute, because it’s so concise and to the point. You could waste hours on rambling FPL podcasts to get to the same level of helpful insight and advice. Just the best Podcaster on FPL IMHO and a lovely dry sense of humour. Win / win.
