Customer Reviews

Not Football Weekly.

It's certainly not a bad podcast, but in a podcast world inundated with football podcasts, this is a lesser example. The interviews are quite often boring, the commentators rather dry (are they reading off cue cards?), the humour scripted, and the guests pretty unspectacular. The Times is pretty late in the pod game and probably has a year or two to get this one up to standard. For my money, I like the Guardian's Football Weekly.

Decent, but needs a true host to get it back on track.

I listen to this show regularly, but it's major failing if the lack of a genuine host/presenter. Gabe Marcotti is certainly not that. He's too quick to deliver a hammer blow of opinion rather than generate discussion. The show was at it's best the first year with Danny Kelly, and was even solid with Phil Jupitus hosting, but the Marcotti era is it's worst. There is often very good discussion in here, but in a far less palatable format than other shows (The Guardian's Football Weekly is the gold standard). It's a good show if you're dying for more content, but shouldn't be your number one.


This podcast is soo funny, i look forward to it every week! i favorite part is BILLY ON THE BALL, some of those stats actually sound like he made them up, but it is entertaining either way!
