Great pod so far

Was sad when Anka got moved to Southampton coverage, so I’m glad to have another outlet to hear his thoughts on ManUtd

BETTER AUDIO!!!

This isn’t a live radio show where you have to deal with bad connections. This is a recorded podcast. Be better with audio. The episode with the Ighalo was absolutely atrocious. Unacceptable.
