Hey, not bad! I was wondering how this type of format would work on 'radio', after the terrible ESPN version 'starring' Max Kellerman. Pretty decent, and laugh out loud funny when describing Duncan Ferguson punching Paul Scharner. Good host, pretty good byplay. The 'score' keeping is a bit gimmicky, but good discussion.
Hilarious round up of the sporting week
Fighting talk has a great mixture of topical discussion on the weeks sporting events, whilst simultaneous being able to identify with guests playing the game. Best format of sports entertainment show I have come across.
don't miss it
What a great way to get the footie weekend going. I don't download until Sun. Morning, but I can listen to that followed by Sat. 606 for what's going on in the sitcom known as the EPL. It puts me in a great shape for the commute to Sunday work.
