At one point a presenter tried to discuss a team outside “The Big Six” seriously but his co host quickly shut that down with a crap joke and an advert break. Many other written reviews saying how bad it is and I’d agree

Why didn’t you cover the battle of the best young English managers ??
Lexlogie via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/16/22
Excellent, but having (eventually) reviewed a Palace game a fleeting reference to Anderson and difficult away game aside, once again all about the ‘big’ team! A little predictable.

Joe Devine and JJ are really poor. Seb and Joe McKenzie elevate programme but are often drowned out by nonsense from joe and jj.

Joe, there’s plenty of places you could live if you truly want out of this capitalist system that the rest of the world can’t immigrate to fast enough. Just think at 2:00 on a Sunday Instead of having the luxury of wondering who you are you could be thinking about which bread line you’ll be...Read full review »

The presenter has never seen any of the games. Every single podcast the majority of it is spent with him asking what the games were, what happened in the games and half the podcasts is the guys explaining to him information we all already know. I’m listening for insight and perspectives that I am...Read full review »

I've been a fan of Tifo since before this podcast ever existed, from when they would get a couple thousand views on their videos. But it's really really gone down hill in the last couple years. They seem to be really stretching the definition of what can be considered "analysis"...Read full review »

One Eyed, Shameless Propaganda- Made almost exclusively by AND for bitter Liverpool & Man U****d Sympathisers
Boozhead via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/13/22
This pod needs to be better. One or two off-topic, irrelevant tangents are acceptable to hear every few pods but every episode can not be a conversational stumble through general footballing topics with very little genuine analysis. This pod lacks focus.
Dillon Ford Jones via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/29/22
I’ve been looking for a Football podcast that suits me for ages- thankfully found it here. Great mix of personality with in-depth conversation about tactics, players, coaching, etc.
Wottsy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/22/22
Wanna watch a man be progressively bullied into the dirt for talking too much? Want to be told about every break the hosts take despite the transition being unnoticeable? Want to hear Joe override football discussion to talk about his breakfast? Tifo Football Podcast is the one for you.
applelegandfan via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 03/08/22
This should be renamed the “Tottenham and Manchester United Recap Podcast” Spend about 80% of the podcast talking about either Manchester United or Tottenham, and then skim past other results and talking points. Every. Single. Week.
KeelanM756 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/22/22
If you’re into pompous, arrogant and pretentious football talk, this is the show for you. The most unbearable of the group is Devine who’s attempts at humor are contemptuous and haughty, despite his clear ignorance. Their analysis is highly presumptuous and so often inaccurate, but they deliver...Read full review »

Good football topics presented buy snobby/liberal hosts. Is there any genuine people that do podcasts at the athletic that aren’t dorks?

A bunch of posh private school boys, who you can tell have never played the game, waffling on, mainly about Manchester United, and laughing at their own jokes. Avoid.
Neil H EFC via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/02/22
Usually love Tifo, but come on Tifo you can do better than this. Your intro says it is "in celebration of his 80th birthday" and the your contributors go on to describe him as a great actor and an "accomplished liar". Danny might even finish a sentence one day..."There was...Read full review »

My favorite football podcast, good balance of analysis and humor.
jb19941115 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/28/21
When I first subscribed I really enjoyed the balanced and in depth analysis of a wide range of topics and teams however lately the podcast appears to be there to talk solely about “the big 6” with little to no interest spent on who they might be playing against and their performance. For the...Read full review »

When the tifo podcast started it felt a bit like that sketch in the fast show where a middle class man goes to Arsenal with a pic Knick basket whilst trying to ingratiate by cheering on both teams. I hated it at first, but for some masochistic reason kept coming back until I subscribed & now...Read full review »

I love it when joe say’s it’s boring. But anyway I really love the work you’ll are doing And hope to see and increase in episodes In a week for example like 2 a week would be fine but that my opinion 🙏

The recent massive push to sell merch has kind of dampened the podcasts and brand a bit, joe’s segues off the analysis can be grating as well.
Benjagro21 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/02/21
Love the discussions! But the intros and merch pitches , GOD! It took 5 min 40 sec to get to actual content. You’re losing me.
Nnikolov via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/02/21
Tifo or as I call it “How long can a group of Spurs fans pretend West Ham aren’t absolutely massive” is a terrific podcast. Worth adding to your rotation!
Matts08 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/26/21
A good mixture of humour and not taking everything painfully seriously playing off against earnest and studious analysis. top stuff
dih snuts via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/20/21
One of my favourite football podcasts. Great balance between humour & analysis.
ollie kiveton park via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/13/21
Been a subscriber for last 2 years but the new feature of Seb whingeing about spurs for half hour every week is making it hard to listen. Thanks for all the content in the past tho.
Juliofox84 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/30/21
An ego which tarnishes The Athletic’s stellar reputation, all other Tifo hosts are informed, competent, interesting and articulate, whereas Joe’s insecurities are as abundant as his pettiness, he’s unfunny, odious, rude and comes across as a petulant child who was denied a cookie by his mother,...Read full review »

JJ: aRseNaL fAns wAntEd wEngeR oUt, nOw lOok. Wow, what a hot take. Arsenal were stagnating (at best) under Wenger by the end (as every journalist at the time reported, and then some). Now things are even worse. This 20-20 careful-what-you-wish-for take is infantile. Like any generalist football...Read full review »

You can tell this is a quality podcast because there is no Micah Richards, Lianne Sanderson or Karen Carney speaking nonsense. Used to be BBC Football daily fan but what does Sanderson & Carney have to do with men’s football? I feel sorry for the BBC having to meet their diversity targets...Read full review »

Love dis pod, the guys offer great tactical insights, always analysing and challenging each other in good humour. Their personalities blend so well and I always feel like a know a little more about football after listening 👂🏼🤯
Luis Alice via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/06/21
I’ve listened to practically every podcast that had a review of the Euro 2020 final and this is undoubtedly the worst. Unfortunately the one presenter who seemed to have been watching a different game and thus soured the rest of the team trying to bring him back to sanity. Understand being a die...Read full review »

Love the Tifo pod. People who genuinely know their stuff, low ego and no little humour. Definitely fits in a unique space at the moment amongst the mass of footy pods. Perfect compliment to Guardian Football Weekly. I am now all about the half space.
Monkey Tennis Pro via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/08/21
I found the TIFO podcast via their YouTube, which is also great. They provide smart and often funny insight into football that I enjoy. However, I have no idea what Joe Devine looks like. In my head, he’s a cross of David Tennant and the character Bill Nighy plays in “Love Actually”. Anyway, keep...Read full review »
scottyroro via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/21
Dear Tifo, I don’t care if you have to tie him to a desk, lock him up or get him addicted to heroine and become his dealer, he NEEDS to be on the pod!!! Please stop giving him holidays 🤬🤬🤬🤬. No offence to Seb and Alex, I only listen for Joe (and JJ to a degree). SO DONT LET HIM MISS A...Read full review »

bl36ch via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/11/21
This was unmissable listening for a long time, but it’s starting to lose that quality a bit - the host seems to distract from the conversation these days, and since it began to focus on recapping and previewing games it gets lost in the shuffle with other podcasts. It was previously the case that...Read full review »

Literally wait for this podcast every week and is now on a par with the totally football show as the best around. Great knowledge from Seb and Alex but it’s Joe who makes the programme do listenable every week!! A great listen and recommended to any one who loves football.
Alex150288 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/27/21
The 50+1 explanation was the most frustrating thing I’ve ever listened to. It wasn’t funny or helpful, and it took a long time to get through.
DavidSmith33 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/21
I don’t know if I can’t stop listening to you guys because of your accent or your great analysis... This podcast is excellent!
