Adam and co. offer their critique of football’s foibles in a funny and informative manner. Range of topics keep it fresh and means the episodes are not lost to the context of the week they were recorded in, unlike other football pods.

An underrated listen
Well produced, well hosted, the right balance between funny and insightful. The pundit/commentary episode is brilliant.
