Fantastic stuff for any true football fan.

As a passionate and obsessed football fan as my self, I love the small details in football that us fans don’t really see behind the scenes, and I really enjoy the small stories that are shared on what used to go on back in the day. I have listened to 2 Episodes still, Xabi Alonso and Owen and they were fantastic. I will especially enjoy the ones that feature the players from the late 90’s to late 2000’s or early 2010’s because IMO that’s were football was at its peak for me and those sort of players we will never see in football again I’m afraid. Good job Jamie!

Great, but…

Great podcast, great guests, great insight and a great host, but terrible audio quality. Just terrible. Makes it very hard to listen to some days. See Xavi Alonso episode for an example of what I mean. Please consult with a podcast producer to improve the audio.

Unreal Guests with a Great Host & Interviewer

Main thing I learned is that Wilfred Zaha seems pretty dumb, but kinda sweet. In anyone else’s hands- that could have been a terrible interview cause Zaha isn’t a great talker but you can just see Jamie doing a great job keeping the conversation moving and pulling out as much as he can from Wilf and getting him relaxed. Excellent interviewing technique in that one. Not the best episode but would have been a disastrous one in someone besides Jamie carragher’s hands
