A mediocre listen

Knowledgeable enough concerning events of the past but the releases of the podcasts tend to be 1-2 weeks after current happenings. This often will mean the panel will be discussing topics from games 3-4 matches ago! Very frustrating. Especially highlighted in the last month, when our fortunes have improved, and yet the panel is still stuck in the negative period post xmas.

Interesting

I am a regular listener to this podcast. As a latter day Arsenal supporter I do sometimes find it unneccesarily negative and increasingly find myself disagreeing with a good number of the views shared by the contributors. However, football is opinion. Just don't have 100 paracetamols and a bottle of scotch handy if you catch an episode after the team have had a bad run.
