A Break from the Ordinary

Have not been a follower of football from outside the top divisions in Europe but this show has changed my perspective on that!
Refreshing to hear a club owner like Darragh being so candid and open into the various aspects of running a club.
All the successes, failings and ongoing challenges of over a decade within the football business laid bare.
Very informative and enlightening forfootball fans from all walks of life as it allows a peek behind the curtain which otherwise we would not be privy to.
The chemistry with the host Philip works very nicely on the show and the chat flows organically.
Please keep producing this wonderful content guys.
The Posh now very much have another 🇮🇪 supporter on board.
Keep up the good work.
Your endeavours are very much appreciated.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Must listen for any football fan

Started getting sick of a lot of football podcasts stating the obvious until I came across this one. Whether you agree or disagree, Darragh doesn’t hold back on any of his opinions which makes great listening, Phil the co-host is really good too, he helps make the pod flow. Keep em coming lads!
