Try other podcasts first.
There are better podcasts out there that provide a lot more soccer analysis re. MNUFC. This feels like a show that if you’re not in their fan twitter clique, they don’t want you to enjoy it.
I became interested in this show over the offseason and left a 5 star review because I thought they did an incredible job covering off season moves and previewing the season. I’ve been less impressed during the season. The Adrian Heath bashing causes the hosts to lose credibility during a season in which the team has exceeded expectations. In addition, while I tend to agree with the political views of the hosts, I’d rather not hear about politics during a soccer podcast. I understand the historical connection between soccer and politics, however, it’s not for me.
I do believe the podcast does a great job showcasing the culture of the club and for that reason I tend find it worth the occasional listen.
