Be more about WORLD football

I really enjoy this podcast, however there is a tendency for it some weeks to focus heavily on English football. The main reason I listen to this podcast is so that I can hear about everything except English football. On the whole a good listen though

Man Like Skipps ,

Too politically correct

The former American woman’s players don’t deserve to be on the show, she stats don’t like or watch men’s football....why is she on the show????
