Fantastic Podcast

Over the last few years I’ve started to become incredibly interested in Asian football, whether it be J-League, K-League or Chinese Super League. I feel that’s it an area in the world of football that goes unnoticed and is definitely underestimated for its talent.

The K-League United Podcast has been a fantastic listen and I’m so glad to have come across their podcast. It’s unfortunate that I have found the podcast late, as I know I would have enjoyed listening to the episodes when they were current to the time. However, what has been a loss, has now become a big game. Over the last few weeks I have been continually listening to the episodes from the beginning and learning a lot more about the league, players, rules and general knowledge over the last few seasons. As of today, I have finally caught up to the latest episode and I look forward to listening in every week from now on. As well as the podcast, they have a great presence on twitter and Instagram. Constantly providing updates and live commentary of games.

It’s a brilliant podcast and Ryan, Paul and Matt are fantastic hosts with extensive knowledge and passion for football. It’s also been enjoyable listening to the various guests, players and managers they have had on and being able to listen to their takes, interviews and thoughts on their teams.
