Why did it stop?! Brilliant podcast
Great insight into footballers crossover from footballer to ‘normal’ life and what it’s like mentally and actually just day to day with wage differences, dipping into savings etc. With that mixed in with great and funny stories, great insight into preparation and mindset for football and great structured interviews by Owain. Really enjoying working my way through them. 👍🏻
Started listening to this podcast because I’m a swans fan. Really enjoyed the episodes with the old swans players, but enjoyed the episodes with guys I’ve not heard of before just as much. Very fluid and funny podcast. Some good stories
