Gazza!!!

What a podcast…. Absolutely brilliant craic with Gazza, couldn’t stop laughing and tears from start to finish 😂😂😂

Jamie Fullerton ,

Corporate messaging ruins the tone

Really wanted to listen to these guys, but using a topic as serious as racism in football as a jump-board to promote a phone company’s marketing campaign (for that’s what it really is), complete with repeated corporate slogans in the midst of the discussion, is a bad misstep and ruins the tone of the episode. If these companies are going to buy themselves into episodes, fine, but just let them run ads or at least a separated advertorial snippet.

Top dollar…

Love this. Such a great relationship they have. Maybe a bit of ian wright would be nice as well…😄
