Where’s Gab?

Just not the same since Gab left. The hosts try & do a good job, but Gab’s commentary was outstanding.

World Class!

Matt Lawton’s an English major?

Since he can’t use correct grammar (apparently doesn’t know the difference between”less” and “fewer” for example) I wonder. And that’s before we get to his lack of understanding of the difference between men’s and women’s football.

I used to love Gab as the main host. Having a nagging psycho-moralist now makes this a definite unsubscribe.

For real insight, humor, and fun check out The Telegraph’s Audio Football Club!

P.s. if Gregor was the main host it might be better, but I would be equally happy if Mina R were the host of the Telegraph podcast.
