    Comedian Kae Kurd, BBC Sports News presenter Holly Hamilton, writer and broadcaster Martin Kelner and the Daily Mirror Chief Football Writer John Cross join Colin Murray for an hour of sporting punditry, humour and entertainment.

    Points are awarded for informed comment, wit and passion, but taken away for nonsense and answers lacking in conviction.

    In the final round, the top two points scorers go head-to-head in 'Defend the Indefensible' where they must both defend a statement however ludicrous or distasteful for twenty seconds. There can only be one winner!

    We also have the bonus of the podcast extra, in which this week Colin issues a 'Come and get me' plea to one of Britain's biggest TV shows!

One of the top three best podcast out there

I’ve been listening for years, and it takes me that long to be convinced to write a review. Consistently brilliant pundits and comedians backed up by a 60% quality host - ok maybe 75% - make this a must-subscribe.

Used to be good

Used to be a must-listen to podcast, however it’s all got a bit pally-pally recently. Sounds like Colin just joined the sixth form. Pretty boring and predictable now. Colin’s love of American sports and hatred of cricket is nauseating.
It’s only worth listening to when Bunce or the Forest fan are on.
Sort it out ! Right out!

Quality of guests really gone downhill

Always enjoyed Fighting Talk and there has always been a consistent level of high quality guests. The level of quality guests has dropped markedly recently with the likes of Clinton Morrison, Charlie Webster and Felix White. The final straw was having James Haskell as a guest. I’m sorry, I will not be listening anymore.
