This is a great podcast, agree with a few reviews about audio quality, but the LA show gave me a new insight into the MLS scene and the community aspect that I didn’t expect.
I was very pleased to take part in the Millwall show. The community aspect of the game is incredibly important. The game should be more than just a business.
Unique and fresh podcast. Come to rovers 🔵⚪️
Love the podcast. Gives a great insight into the working of each club. Would love you to come up to Tranmere to watch the Rovers who are flying after three years in the national league🔵⚪️
A different take
Andy has managed to find a gap in the packed football pod market. Each pod is different and fascinating with astute guests and questioning. Really interested to see where he goes with this
