The ladies Micronesian synchronized swimming team isn’t being paid what their male counterparts are. And I’ve heard reports that their pool might not be maintained as well as the mens either. Please investigate their plight and get back to us on the next pod

…allegedly refused to appear on the pod on 13 March and allegedly spent the better part of a week fiercely lobbying to grab a spot on a revised MOTD.

Warm hearted and incisive analysis. Like listening to friends but really knowledgeable ones. And Max. Just joking Max is great too

Aside from the occasional cameo from the bitter and frankly clueless Ewan Murray , this is an essential listen …knowledgeable , genuinely funny and always a grand wee listen
TheResPhantom75 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/13/23
A podcast that goes in two footed but cleanly on the issues surrounding football as well as the footie itself. Been a must listen for years now. Max, barry and co, never shy away from discussions that other podcasts swerve while being deep enough to question the meaning of it all. Its insightful,...Read full review »

All - well done on the disability in football episode. You did a great job and it’s such an important subject to talk about. Keep up the fantastic work. I enjoy the podcast every week as well. Keep them coming!

Excellent podcast, great chemistry between the hosts! Insightful and hilarious at times! Much love from Yokohama, Japan ☘️🇯🇵

I really enjoy listening to this podcast but recently there have been so many ads at each segment of the podcast. I’m in Canada and I’m so tired of hearing the Cozy ad (which spans nearly 1.5 mins and is played 3-4 times).
Kaamil via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/14/23
I like this podcast for its football content, I hate this podcast for it’s disingenuous continued criticism of Newcastle Fans. We didn’t pick our owners, we didn’t authorize the purchase. We won’t be forced to walk away the club we love. The Max Rushden continued criticism now smacks of jealousy.
Stevelynnus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/23
Absolutely love this pod, definitely my favourite. Max, Barry and the crew always brighten up my day and really helped in all the lockdowns. Highly recommended

Absolutely the best football podcast! Never miss an episode

If Nooruddean Choudry really thinks we live in a totalitarian run country, he really needs to get out more.
Billyfife via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/16/23
I love the comments and I love that it is has a different panel every time so you don’t get the same opinions constantly regurgitated. And, as an Arsenal fan, I appreciate the nervous optimism over their chances

Reminds me of Christmas reunion with the family once a year.
Jenks from Caerphilly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/12/23
It’s sad this pod has become a discussion of the affairs of the super rich clubs. To illustrate this point, on the most recent pod they enthused about and discussed the upcoming League Cup semi final between Arsenal and Man City. It wasn’t mentioned even once that City still have to play...Read full review »
XXXAMS via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/11/23
Every week they seem to decide to ask “do we give City/Newcastle enough grief about their owners” and then all agree they never talk about them and forget they discussed the same thing last week, the week before, three weeks ago and have done so for the past decade. A bunch of middle aged white...Read full review »

adiggmu via Apple Podcasts · India · 01/05/23
As I say the pod is so good and one of the more in-depth football podcasts I listen to. The guests more often than not bring opinions led by logic and data. However, every third episode or so is ruined by the fast forwarding I have to do whenever Troy Townsend speaks. Not once has he given an...Read full review »

I listen to lots of footy pods, this one is up there with the best, on Nunez twenty games and a goal or assist in each. He’ll be fine. Why is everything and everybody else crap, not good enough, not up to it except if they are associated with Arsenal, JJB?
WillyWonks66 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/28/22
I love the The Guardian, but this football podcast is just annoying to listen to. Europeans being Europeans: patronising and condescending. No knowledge of other players or football outside their leagues.
vitlm via Apple Podcasts · Argentina · 12/19/22
I loved hearing Shireen Ahmed in the podcast as I am a fan of hers from Burn it All Down. Please, please do add her to the regular rotation of guests so she has a chance to talk about both “just football” and the social issues. Also (and I’m an American) please do spend just as much time talking...Read full review »

… as well as providing good, fair, analysis. My brief history of football pods is littered with short-lived follows. Since finding this one, it’s stuck. Brilliant format; Max and Barry pulling off a football version of Morecombe and Wise (and I use that analogy with the fondest memories).
Ctid-YYZ via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/15/22
Hands down the best, funniest, and most entertaining football podcast out there. Great format with a brilliant, affable host in Max Rushden. The legendary Barry and a host of brilliant guests such as Jonathan Liew, Barney Ronan, Robyn Cowen, and loads more. Plus it’s free! Insane value for the...Read full review »

Max is by far the best the most fair most likable English presenter making The Guardian the best English football podcast. Contrast this fun one with the biased the English butt smoochers on The Times Game podcast.
80'sVillager via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/22
I really like this podcast, Max Rushden is terrific
Casnh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/22
Funny and insightful football chat that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Don’t take heed of other reviews that talk of “woke-ness”. Unless you’re the type of person who flys into a fit of rage at the mention of racism, you should be fine. Keep it up lads 👍🏻
Patrick McToal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/22
I do listen to a few football podcasts - usually Spurs related, but this is almost a guilty pleasure, the diversity of the hosts is good, the football knowledge of sum of the guests is astronomical, but really it’s just great football banter with Barry, Max and all. Look forward to this on my...Read full review »

Any team of blokes who don’t take themselves too seriously, can laugh at themselves, and have a good knowledge of their subject get my vote.

Hands down the best footy podcast around. Max is a fantastic host and the content is always interesting. Greetings from Canada🇨🇦 keep up the awesome work!

I wish I can truly understand why you guys always hate Portugal. I don’t know if it’s racism or what it is but the start of the podcast and see it would’ve been glorious. If the governor guy would’ve scored the goal and tied against Portugal what’s so glorious about that to you? Do you just want...Read full review »

Fair play to the team - this is how you do World Cup punditry. Actual experts, easy to listen to voices, not over the top and flippant commentary. Frustrating search is over - a long thirst for a decent daily dose has been quenched (yes irony intended given what’s been decreed over there). Well...Read full review »

Brilliant podcast. Their World Cup previews were great in that they spoke about the football but also about the issues in Qatar. Must listen for anyone that has the slight bit of interest in football.

I’ve been a Football Weekly listener since Germany ‘06. Barry keeps me coming back (whither Paul Doyle?). Thank you for getting us ready for the ‘22 version with a critical perspective on the reality of this complicated World Cup. Keep up the great work!!
Catalpa Dutch Courage via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/17/22
I’ve listened to this podcast for well over a decade and it continues to entertain, inform, and inspire me. In particular, it’s willingness to engage critically with the social issues related to football has inspired me to question my complicity in egregious/problematic goings-on. For that...Read full review »

There are certain clubs they talk about where there are only good things to say, yet they fabricate jabs out of thin air. Would be nice for them to bring on a personality that could positively represent these clubs.
TMill1991 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/22
Barry has a fan somewhere in Africa, his analysis is unorthodox and funny. Read this comment Max!!!
