Evil Empire Clubs
It is near impossible to hear Man City and Newcastle without thinking of the horrible regimes that own them, so listening to pundits praise these clubs is sickening. They should let listeners know about their evil owners every time they decide to discuss positively about their clubs. Also, taking about the Saudi League is the same. ‘Oh poor rich Jordan Henderson’. He is supporting a murdering, horrid regime!!! Jordan gets all of the criticisms and more for deciding to join this sport washing system. Stop putting pity pundits into this show! Saudi Arabia and all of those other murderous, horrid, anti-humanitarian places should be criticised every moment possible!!!!
Euro Leagues is class
This show is an international treasure. The rotating cast of Horncastle, Rzouki have been exquisite. With respect to Balagué, the shows been fine without him. There was a bit of a sense last season that he’s a bit busy for the show and the guests have been a nice change of pace so far. No pretentiousness even tho everyone here has amazing careers and does a wonderful job. Hope he’s well but also that folks at 5 Live take note there might be other interest Spanish talent - esp in the wake of WC23.
With good guests and interesting viewpoints this is a perfect podcast. The episodes aren’t to long but you can easily binge them. It is a great source to keep up with the latest football news!
