Alpharetta Red ,

The Hard Truth.... indeed.

Fascinating look into the world of football club ownership. My father used to play for the posh in the 70’s and it’s really interesting to see how the club is blossoming.

goodbye mr mackenzie ,

Could have been good

…but I cant listen to this right wing extremist moron anymore. No one is taking anyone’s freedoms in California you absolute ignorant uneducated t w at

A man in the know ,

Wonderful

What a great podcast, it’s a brilliant insight into life, football and business. The two hosts are brutally honest (that’s the idea!) and it’s a great link back home for the exiled soccer fan! Great work!
