Great Pod

Most informative soccer pod out on an American platform. Both hosts are great.

Frequency Check

Enjoyed the show since it’s inception. Marcotti is underrated imo. However, there’s been a noticeable high pitch frequency underlying the last couple episodes that’s miserable to listen to. Hope you guys have an engineer that can take a look.

Access Gabbie…

The Maggie Haberman of the football press box, in HIDING on Aug. 15, per the orders of his owner, Cristiano El Punko, after Brentford’s 4-nil humiliation of Cristiano El Punko and the rest of Lady Alice’s side. *** Access Gabbie’s sign of Forest Gump obedience comes just two weeks after Cristiano El Punko whined “The Queen will return,” and then stormed off the pitch and out of the stadium at halftime of a friendly. *** Interesting how Access Gabbie buried his brief comment on His Master’s Tantrum deep in the subsequent podcast. Clearly a sign of how tightly Cristiano El Punko has his hand around Access Gabbie’s throat.
