Great pod!

Hey guys great stuff! Your podcast led me into really exploring mls and I now keep up to date via you guys and a few other mls podcasts.

I decided to make Minnesota my team the natural move from one bad team to another considering I’m a Newcastle fan!

Anyone think of listening def do its a great pod and fun relationship between the hosts keep it away from the typical fact heavy pods.

Keep up the good work!

This was a surprisingly informed and detailed discussion, as well as being quite witty in places due to their chemistry. Perhaps I just had very low expectations though and my 5 star rating is shock-induced.
