Gab Marcotti and a selection of leading football writers give their thoughts and analysis on the latest events in football

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.

Good Start and Welcome Addition to Football/Soccer Podcasts

Danny Kelly, Tony Cascarino, and Gabriele Marcotti are all well known commentators and columnists on the European Footballing scene. The show is entertaining even if the segment "News Headlines with Sound Effects" was just completely lame. The rest of the show was good and informative and worthy of a listen and subscription to the weekly show. Good Start.
