Good

... but it could be a lot better if they’d sort out the levels on their mics before they record, or do something about it afterwards in post. At times inaudible against any background noise.

Unsubscribing

Unsubscribing. Had enough of Miguel Delaney’s pontificating and hypocrisy. Other contributors okay but sound levels are constantly a problem.

Analysis? No. Reactionary banalties which change every week? Yes.

Don't want to be too harsh here because I do think the contributors do provide some decent insights and there is obviously a lot of passion for football from the likes of Miguel, Jack and Ed. However, the level of analysis and considered opinion is quite poor. It could be a sympton of the social media age in that reactions and opinions have become so reactionary and instantaneous that they tend to change every week. No doubt all of the contributors are guilty of this and I think the pod falls down in contrast to say the Totally Football Show. Miguel, Jack and Ed seems to change their opinions every week to in reaction to the results. Nothing is considered or well thought out. Everything just follows from what happened recently. That's not journalism or analysis.

Further, another element which bothers me is the tendency of some of the contributors to use phraseology and terms which only football fans (mostly armchair fans) would use. The likes of Miguel and Jack constantly refer to players and managers by their nicknames or their first names like they know them. For example,Jack also has a tendency to refer to the night of 'Crystanbul' quite a lot. I had not idea what this was and had to Google it. Turns out 'Crystanbul' is a term used to describe the Palace 3-3 Liverpool game back in 2014 used by internet, armchair fans who've probably never been to a game in their lives.

Contributors need to take time to reflect, form opinions and not get caught up in the social media bubble which blinds so many people in this day and age.
