A quality football podcast
Nearly the perfect podcast, offering a variety of opinions which is a real plus for a football podcast, so often podcast have one viewpoint and create an echo chamber but this podcast offers different views which is great.
I’m a big fan of Kelly, Chris Sutton and Wrighty and enjoy ex pros making their weekly appearances.
The only negative is some of the ex pros and regular podcasters have a bit of an ego which sometimes gets in the way of good analysis.
