Great footy pod
Love this podcast so far. Really entertaining and good insight too. Great mix!
Easily my favorite soccer podcast
The guys at Top Bins are a lot of fun to listen to. A lot of weird deep cut soccer knowledge you can tell they really love the sport at every level and the banter is untouchable. A must listen for sure!
Really enjoying this podcast so far. A great mix of serious analysis and silliness/banter. Always an enjoyable listen and their content is wide-ranging and original.
