Reviews
Fascinating topic with loads of potential but it seems the hosts just pitch up without any preparation or considered questions and are unable to react intelligently to what their guests say. Imagine interviewing someone like Ian Poulter and not even knowing if he’d done an autobiography, or even...Read full review »

Great podcast and definitely recommend, would of gave it a 5 if it wasn’t for Robbie being “fascinated” with everything, every other word is “fascinating”. Do love you though rob 😘

Fara Williams finale was insane - Robbie best interview of the season well done!

Great podcast. Matthew makes great points and Robbie adds humour. He doesn’t have to shoehorn that his son is at Manchester United’s academy or he was in the Class of ‘92 every podcast though!

Really fascinating guests and insights to what it takes to succeed not just in sport but life! I would recommend it to anyone but especially young adults to be positive and not fear failure! Great work guys

Listened to every episode of the first series with Fred and enjoying this one too. As the episodes go on it’s moving into something really good

I have listened to 3 of these podcasts so far: Robbie Williams, Brendan Rogers and Cesc Fabregas and they have all been fantastic listening and certainly changed my perceptions of them, particularly Robbie W who came across as far more of a deep thinker than I expected. Looking forward to...Read full review »

Loved listening to the few I have heard so far , Cesc for me was the best so far fantastic insight to his mindset and positivity. Loved it !! Keep up the great work

Super fascinating guests with lots of incredible content and key messages. Keep them coming please!

I have really enjoyed listening to this podcast and Matthew Syed but Robbie Savage has to bring everything back to him in every podcast. If you could find a replacement for Robbie Savage I think you expand your listenership.

What a fantastic guest. Felt he constantly had to listen to the presenters talking and giving a monologue before the question. Let the guest be the star not the presenter.

What a great advert for youth football? I loved listening to Tony’s interview. You can hear the passion in his voice and how much it all means to him. Top guy and a Top coach. We need more inspirational coaches like this in Great Britian. Fantastic and fascinating interview. Well done 👏
janboy1234 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/12/21
We are at the 9th episode and again we have another football coach.. the podcast is becoming very football heavy, with rio and Anton, Brendan, tony and of course Robbie asking his own questions which the normal listening audience have no interest in..many other sports played in the country apart...Read full review »
Chriswales85 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/11/21
It’s a good podcast and both men are obviously interested and excited about their guests BUT Robbie spends too much time interrupting and trying to be funny. He lives in a world of unnecessary ‘banter’ when he should just let the moments sit and the conversation flow. His constant ‘friendly’...Read full review »

The guests are great, from Ben Francis to Ian Poulter. I cringe a little bit when Robbie

I enjoyed this episode the most to date. I was engaged in how Cecs went through his journey through football. I was delighted to hear how good he thought the facilities of English football. He is so right. How can clubs like Bournemouth compete in the PL? How has Foden and Maddison come through...Read full review »

Really enjoying this , a bit more serious without Freddie but still entertaining and interesting, some great guests so far , 👍

Great podcast with Ben Francis - very impressive and inspirational young man! How do we get this thinking/mentality into the curriculum for young people?
Huwbie60 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/29/21
Loved these on their old podcast with Freddy but this is a great listen. Some amazing stories and the last pod was amazing
Eadxw23 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/25/21
Great interview, thought Stef was well spoken and honest. An inspiration to us all. Although sometimes funny, Robbie’s constant Micky taking of Matthew is starting to get a bit boring and ruins key moments of the pod.
Greg93A via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/22/21
Right at the end of Stef Reid episode 6, I had uncontrollable laughter. Have to listen. 😂😂😂
RodneyInk via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/19/21
Fantastic listen and great insight! Look forward to the other guests!
jakemallen91 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/19/21
Superb format - feels like a relaxed chat over a beer but with such great insight - great podcast and loving the “dynamic duo” - really good chemistry and great banter.
THP71 via Apple Podcasts · France · 01/15/21
A really good podcast in a genre which is pretty competitive. Brendan Rodgers episode was great and he said one thing about being a learner that Robbie should take on board because this felt like I was at times listening in on Robbie speaking to a careers advisor. Matthew Syed is excellent,...Read full review »

I don't normally give negative feedback but.. I loved the original podcast format they did with Flintoff. But this new format is far to Similar to The High Performance Podcast. Which has put me off. It's not to my taste.Read full review »

Really enjoyed all the episodes so far. Matthew and Robbie have a great chemistry and like the sporting diversity in their guests to date. Interesting to hear that many of the subjects weren’t sporting protégés as youngsters and whilst all the stories are different, there are consistent themes of...Read full review »

Brilliant insight from Robbie, Matthew and their guests into what it takes to succeed. Well done and looking forward to more episodes! Love Robbie’s passion for his grassroots team and using personal examples.
footballfan5 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/13/21
My kids are still toddlers so it’s kind of irrelevant topics for me. However, i find this podcast very interesting and actually educational just by listening to people who achieved a lot. They usually have a lot to say! Listening to them makes me wish i was a teenager again so i would be more...Read full review »

What on earth does savage know about talent - it’s like getting Diane Abbott to do a maths podcast
RU2578 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/13/21
An extremely insightful, funny, informative well structured podcast. To hear from people at the very top of their field imparting the knowledge that only a wealth of experience can provide, is invaluable. As a parent to a very sporty son, i can relate to the struggles I have in trying to give...Read full review »

Two very interesting and entertaining podcasts. Brendan is a deep thinker, quite intense but incredibly ambitious; but why did he fail as Reading manager? Judy has huge emotional intelligence and a lovely, warm personality. Equally ambitious but with perhaps the confidence of having achieved the...Read full review »

The Brendan Rodgers episode could have been AMAZING. But Savages garbled, self indulgent, childish nonsense spoilt it. And there the theme started. Turf him and carry on with a great interviewer and great guests. That would be 5 star.

Hi Matthew/Robbie, Just listened to the first episode with the Ferdinands and it was riveting. The openness and honesty in the various stories was very educational and a must for everyone to listen to. Looking forward to listening to the Brendan Rodgers chat now. This along with the “High...Read full review »

Very insightful and great analysis listening to the Brendan Rodgers episode and his coaching style, well done Syed and Savage! Advice to Robbie, hold back on the easy jokes it misses some great points which could be expanded on and where the conversation could’ve progressed. Although, I really...Read full review »

Robbie and Matthew work extremely well together, and the guests are from the most elite level in their industries. Fascinating insight into their lives and mentalities and so much to take from it. Keep delivering the outstanding work.
