I have been waiting my whole life for this podcast!!!
The podcasting equivalent of Ellesse jumpers for goalposts
As someone who feels like the 1990's was a golden era of music, culture and sport, this podcast is right up my strasse. It's full of brilliant 90's football minutiae, the interview with Matthew Le Tissier is really interesting and Josh, Chris and Michael are a really funny team. Will look forward to the next one.
Amazing that this exists and I love the first episode. Can they top Le Tissier?
