Kay Murray for da win!💪👍
Great analytics and commentary, but Dan Thomas is just not the right host for the show. Kay Murray is an example of what the show could be. With her as the host it is more calm and entertaining, because it is easier to listen to and follow the flow of the show. The last couple of days was a breath of fresh air, and it was a nice bonus to not listen through half an hour of arguments between Dan and other pundits to get the 30 minutes of quality content in the hour long show.
Is this the Man United show?
Could you please tone down a little from being United’s associated press and talk more about other teams and leagues too? Thanks.
Gabs and Jules/Caught Offside
The five star rating is for Caught offside and the Gabs and Jules show. I absolutely love those two shows. The only two shows I listen to on this podcast.
