Love it !

I’ve been listening for past year & love content.
Your coverage is widespread, crossing league & country boundaries. Very witty bantering, and comes with detail to back up thoughts/opinions ( not just blowhards). I’ve also been able to also get my wife/daughter, who aren’t big sports fans but follow local soccer teams, hooked on this show because you take time to explain concepts without making listener feel like you talking down to them. Keep up good work !

PS: forgot to add that your headline/timestamps are awesome!
Especially helpful when only have a few minutes to dive into show/topic.

Soccer yes! Politics No!

They are fantastic covering soccer. They are a bit partisan when talking politics. If you lean left, you'll not notice it. If you're conservative, they will annoy at times with their surface-level treatment of politics. Two years ago I would have rated them a 5. Last year a 4. The longer they go the more they seem to be leaning into the political realm.
