Great podcast; PJ in London
The lads clearly know what they're talking about and the sound quality is really good. Nice to be able to listen to a podcast that totally focuses on events away from the prem rather than having the football league as an afterthought, and that's coming from an arsenal fan! Keep it up chaps
Brilliant we need more like this..
Really good podcast - as a fan of Sheffield Wednesday I may need this more often! ;)
I really enjoy this podcast, it's very easy to listen to and it's very informative.
I'm a Scottish football fan so it's good to hear about the Football League rather than have the Premier League rammed down my throat like every other football media outlet.
Keep it up lads.
