Just as many of you are, I’m also an avid listener of football podcasts. I don’t know what I’d do without them as I now listen to podcasts 100% of the time and never seem to switch on the radio anymore.
Two football podcasts of note that I want to tell you about are “Soccer Shout” and “Divers and Cheats.”
In today’s episode of Soccer Shout, I’m the guest co-host as Phil and I discuss yesterday’s FA Cup matches (I bid the romance of the cup farewell), the latest transfer talk surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo and whether I feel the lad will go, the controversy over the Paul Jewell and Phil Dowd affair, and many more topics including the psychological warfare between Sam Allardyce and Arsene Wenger.
In past weeks, topics on the show have included this year’s terrible Premiership away kits, how Peter Crouch routinely fouls his opponents when he’s attempting to jump up for crosses, football hooliganism Italian style and what it’s like waking up at 4:45 on a Saturday morning to watch your EPL on Setanta.
The pace of the show is very different than The 2 G’s. There’s good chemistry between Bell and Brown, and Brown — especially — offers good insights into the game from an American perspective which are refreshing to hear.
Check out Divers and Cheats, and Soccer Shout today.
