    There's a Coventry player considered for the Underrated Hall Of Fame (not, it's not Cobi Jones), and perhaps the most journeymannish journeyman yet in our latest Journeyman of the Week For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Best football podcast I've heard

This is a superb series and Lee and his contributors offer an insightful, intelligent, and amusing analysis of talking points from 80's and 90's football. While the modern era is bloated with hundreds of analysts poring over every minute detail of modern day football it's hard to find such an entertaining (and accurate) take on this period. A fantastic chance to reminisce for older fans and a great education for younger ones. Highly recommended!!!
