Mercifully for me my team aren’t in the football league anymore (finally I know). Still listen to the guys. Well informed and always good fun. Thanks!

Excellent

Appreciate the content. As an exiled QPR fan in LA I like to hear about the rest of the EFL and this is a concise, impartial, interesting, in depth and informative podcast. Two audibly easy on the ears hosts and very much enjoyed this since the start of the season. Cheers lads.

Great for those that want more Football league

As a Bradford fan this is a great listen even if the season goes badly for you club. It provides knowledge on all the leagues and thankfully isn’t just a championship podcast. It will give you a more well rounded view so that you can kind of see what’s coming as teams and players rise. Up the Bantams and hopefully I can hear them talk about promotion haha.

an aside, but betting episodes should be marked as explicit as they encourage bad habits in a sport already swamped with non-stop betting ads. I wish I could subscribe to a separate feed that doesn’t include them or if they put them in their own feed.
