High brow footie pod
Incisive commentary, wit, humour, and very deep knowledge of the game. A great listen!
Love the podcast!
The football podcast you’ve been looking for
Of the many, many available podcasts about football, this is one of the very best. Proper, sophisticated insight into the game both in terms of the way it is played on the pitch and, crucially, how it exists within and interacts with the modern world. This is the podcast to subscribe to if you give a sh*t about politics and how it relates to football. This is the podcast to subscribe to if you want to hear people with unique and spot on takes on football issues you hadn’t already thought of yourself and won’t hear elsewhere. Most importantly, though, this is the podcast to subscribe to if you want to play 90s hip-hop/football analogy bingo.
Big up Musa & co, keep it up ✌🏻
