April 3rd

Always a quality podcast, but far too much attention given to Nottingham Forest week by week compared to those teams actually in the play off and promotion places. Also,
MDA should be fined every time he describes them as “2 times European Champions” or mentions “the world famous City Ground”

Shelsly ,

Much missed

Please bring the best football podcast back.
Much missed by all genuine football supporters from the EFL and beyond.

Bourne End Boy ,

Is this podcast dead? Please come back!

We don't all follow the Premier League. This is an excellent pod covering the other 72 teams in depth, with contributors who know their stuff. It is much valued by us 'real' fans. Fingers crossed it returns very soon.
