Carra

I’m from the states and find it hard to understand some of the British accents. Scottish might as well be another language but oddly I don’t think many Americans have a tough time with the Liverpool accent. Don’t get me wrong it’s not exactly easy on the ear but I think it’s more understandable for an American listener for whatever reason.

Souness is a Racist and Sky Enable Him

Can’t continue to listen to this podcast / support a company that turns such a blind eye to a a man who is so vitriolic and treats black athletes and his fellow black coworkers like the crud on his boot. Disgusting. Way to stand up against hate Sky.
