Soccer Podcasts: The Complete List

podcast Soccer Podcasts: The Complete List

It’s incredible to see the number of soccer podcasts continually grow. A few years ago it was only a handful. Now, there are more than 55, many of them excellent in quality, and there’ll be several more added in time for this summer’s World Cup. The choices seem almost endless, so I thought I’d compile a comprehensive list of the soccer podcasts available. If I’m missing any, please post them in the comments section below.

Whether you enjoy football discussions, interviews, coaching tips, tactical analysis, laughs or rants, there are plenty of soccer podcasts for everyone.

Here’s the complete list of soccer podcasts (in alphabetical order). Each links directly to the iTunes page for you to subscribe. Drumroll please…

Again, please let me know if there are soccer podcasts I’ve missed that are still being published.

    Strange that WFD is the only “pay” podcast. I wonder if they can be doing much business with that many “free” competitors?

    • bluefanmd says:

      They’re staying in business and the level of guests is amazing. It is only about 4.00 a month, which is nothing!

      • Ryan says:

        the interviews are very good. plenty of technical issues so not 100% if it’s worth paying for but i do

      • AtlantaPompey says:

        I tolerate Steven & Kenny to hear all of the fantastic guests they have on the show. The price is fantastic considering that it is a daily podcast.

        Steven gets a lot of (well-deserved) stick for being who he is, but he is very accessible. He reads emails, although I wish he would slow down and enunciate a little better. They do tend to talk like they don’t know which topic they are discussing and interrupt each other constantly.

    hey Gaffer, I was wondering whether its possible to find direct rss feeds for the podcasts listed here, bcos i dont use itunes.

    thanks

    Regards

    • The Gaffer says:

      Ivan, sorry. The list to put together just the iTunes link took several hours, but feel free to google any podcasts above that you’re interested in so you can hunt down the RSS feed.

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer

    You’re leaving out the finest Spurs podcast!

    “Cock on Ball” : http://www.cockonball.com

  4. Gaz says:

    Best Podcast by far:

    The Guardian Football Weekly

  5. Jason Gatties says:

    Match Fit USA became The American Soccer Show recently. The Match Fit USA podcast only exists in archived previous broadcasts.

  6. Yaro5 says:

    You missed one of the top UK sports podcasts “It’s Up For Grabs Now”. A very entertaining Arsenal related podcast hosted by Alan Davies.

  7. Nick says:

    The Game & the Football Ramble both are the same link. Are they the same show?

    Thanks for the great list! And WFD is well worth the money!

    You’re missing Mostly Football:

  10. Richard The Red (Devil) says:

    My two favourite podcasts are Football Weekly and The Football Ramble. Barry Glendenning is an absolute riot on FW. He is a quality pundit with a very Irish twist to his views. The boys at the Ramble are getting better every week.

  11. Jeff says:

    World Football Daily is definitely the best. Well worth the $40 a year. So many great guests and a lot of air time. At least 2 hours a day.

  12. Simon says:

    wfd is worth the money the gust they have on are the best yes Steven can be Annoying at tims. but he is good at wart he dose. he is not afraid to speak his mind. and you need to be like that when you do wart he dose.

  13. CTBlues says:

    The Chelsea Football Fancast is quality for any Chelsea fan. The show consists of about 5 to 7 Chelsea fans depending who makes it to there post match pub in West London. They discuss the match and up coming match(s), answer listener questions, read listener emails, they have a bit called “We Are Showing the World the Way to Sing” where they teach Chelsea chants, they reminis about the old days, and sometimes they get guests to interview.

  14. unclesand says:

    surprised that there’s been no mention for the outstanding ’5 live’s world football phone-in’, surely the best football-related podcast out there, with the possible exception of the widely and justifiably praised guardian football weekly. shaun wheelock’s bi-weekly coverage of the US football scene should be of particular interest to fans over here.

    • The Gaffer says:

      Unclesand, great catch. I can’t believe I forgot to include it, but there are so many football podcasts to choose from that it’s hard to keep track sometimes. It now has been added to the list.

      The list keeps growing and growing!

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer

  15. ThinkFree says:

    Gaffer.. you don’t have to ONLY use Itunes to get these..I use the Juice Podcast Receiver and Squeezbox to subscribe. Takes pressure of the Ipod can listen on demand. For thoese with Denon Receiver.. you can use radio.denon.com to Subscribe using the NetRadio feature. Again, I love Steve Jobs.. but other ways to get these with only going through Itunes. Copy and paste the podcast url.. and off you go!! -TF-

  16. Specter says:

    I hate to toot my own horn here, but we are still doing the Chelsea in America podcast at http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=280443584

  17. NIck says:

    Hard to imagine they did not severely damage their listener numbers by charging. While the show may or may not be any good, with so many other QUALITY podcasts out there for free, it seems they are taking a big risk and potentially pissing off old loyal listeners. I would be interested to know how many subscribers they have and whether or not they will continue to charge.

    Gaffer,
    Brilliant post. One which needed to be done.
    I decided to put this post on my blogroll.

    http://usa.worldcupblog.org/group-e/the-usa-world-cup-blog-podcast-episode-2-23-spots-400-options.html

    No iTunes feed yet unfortunately.

  20. Twiggster says:

    Hey mate…why is the Glory Glory Leeds Show under “miscellaneous” and not in the “Specific Clubs” section? I know Leeds are only third dividion, but we are STILL a specific club, surely? Just a thought.
    Thanks for listing the show, anyway….well pleased.

    • The Gaffer says:

      Twiggster, good to hear from you. Actually the listing near the top is for Premier League clubs only. I could have expanded the list to cover podcasts for all Football League clubs, but the list would have increased significantly in length.

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer

  21. b2 says:

    Can you please add Beyond the Pitch podcast (http://www.beyondthepitch.net/) to this list. I’ve been listening to them and the different coaches, legends of the game, commentators and footballers, covering history, issues, stories that only the people who were there can tell it. They’ve had Sid Lowe, Rio Ferdinand, Clive Tyldesley, Ray Hudson, Graeme Sharp, Gabriele Marcotti even Eamon Dunphy to name a few. It is interesting and definitely quality listening. Thanks

  22. darwinscores says:

    The Footy Show from Canada is good, Can be very humorous at times with segments like “Tw*t of the Week” and others. It is put on by “The Score: Sports network

  23. Ruissimo says:

    Could you add Upper 90 Studios (http://upper90studios.com) to the list? Thanks.
