With the departure of their best commentators in the space of just a couple years, TMS seems an increasingly threadbare production. Experienced, cogent insight into the game has been replaced by superficial and banal chatter guaranteed neither to offend nor to enlighten. This podcast compasses the very best TMS can offer, in the form of Aggers' post-match reflections and interviews, but even that has become a very cut-down affair as well, with the best of the newer additions to the rota (like the inestimable Dan Norcross) now rarely heard. And to make matters worse, the BBC has begun geoblocking the podcast outside of Britain. Geoblocking a podcast that is released worldwide! Absurd.
