Love from Minnesota

Started listening in early 2019 and haven’t missed an episode yet! I wasn’t sure what to expect when football stopped for a period of time this year but you all still delivered great content. Loved hearing about the presenter’s backgrounds. I routinely find myself busting up laughing while listening - the best yet was shoveling a foot of snow while listening to the 2020 Xmas eve show. Barry was giving a heartfelt send off when he went silent. I thought he was crying which almost made me cry. Turned out he actually had his hand over the mic. So hilarious and perfect! My fav podcast hands down!

Women’s Football

The episode of the Guardian Football Weekly podcast that lists their opinion on the top 10 female footballers in the world, however they only mention 1 member of the USA women’s national team in Julie Ertz. Yes Ertz is the best holding midfielder in the women’s game right now, but she is not even the best player on the USA squad. A squad I need not remind you, have won back to back World Cups!

To leave our players such as Lindsey Horan, Crystal Dunn, Christen Press, and Tobin Heath is offensive, and shows an inexcusable European bias.

Please stop this spread of misinformation!

Love the other shows keep up the great work!

Sincerely,

T Bux

Barry is a clown of pundit

listening to the analysis about Manchester United is painful. After of the most exciting matches in recent history, first time theyve scored 6 goals since Fergies retirment, there is not ONE peice of analysis from the MU perspective, literally all Barry can come up with from his Scourser pee-brain head is to say “Ole doesnt deserve the praise hes getting on MOTD”, and goes on to list all the bad results United have had previously this season, as if those results any relevance to the match he's being paid currently talking about. and he goes on to say: “because Ole’s going up against a Leeds team with less resources, and that MU should be swatting aside teams like that” hmmm... how about when Leeds played Liverpool earlier in the year and is was 4-3 on a last minute goal? surely the champions have more resources than a newly promoted side?? If the Guardian are reading this please fire these jokes of pundits and hire someone who can give actual unbiased analysis of the football being played.
