The totally football show has been shite lately, Pat Nevin and Julien Laurens on the same podcast this week :suicide:

 

Pat Nevin hitting us with the wisdom that whoever replaces Iniesta at barca probably won't be as good as him and then pausing for effect like we're all supposed to be surprised that one of the most gifted midfielders to have ever played the game won't be immediately replaced by someone as good.

 

Julien Laurens is hard to bear at the best of times but generally just his usual self, insightless whining.

To be honest I can't be bothered with The Times podcast, the Independent podcast, or the Totally Football show either. All spend most of their time talking about the same teams, raking over the same trash tabloid stories. I don't care about Mourinho's latest outburst, or if Arsenal fans want Wenger out this week or not.

Prefer Football Ramble, and Not the Top 20.

The Football Ramble and On The Continent are consistently the best two pods going for me. Don't quite take themselves as seriously as the others do and are far better for it. the TFS has such a range of pundits that sometimes its really good but others its just shite.

I know Andy Brassell quite well as it happens. He's married to a lass I went to school with.

 

Tell him I like him, I'm sure it'll make his day.

Aye that about sums up TFS. I can’t remember if it was that or another one but they had a mackem lad on recently (not Wilson who is always interesting on podcasts) who I guess played some games in the lower leagues and he kept interrupting everyone to basically remind them of it :lol:.

He came out with a shite story about how someone he played with started on Roy Keane, talked about how the best part of his day as a youth player was the group bath at the end of training, and ended with his tip for which game to watch at the weekend as some really obscure semi pro tie. You could tell Rafa Honigstein had no idea how to react to him. 

 

Just checked and it was Michael Cox.

Oh oh it was Michael Cox. 

 

It was David Preece, who I don't mind too much usually but aye that particular story got away from him a bit.

 

Hongisteins a bit of a knob as well mind, him and Laurens are good examples of people who live in bubbles and just don't understand normal football fandom anymore, Rafa struggled last week to get close to understanding that idea that performing well and finishing higher up the league if you aren't neccessarily going to win it actually matters to people who support teams that don't just always win the league like his team do. 

 

Cox, Wilson, Horncastle, the opta guy and the finances guy are all good, finance guy particularly offers something no one else does in that he understands how agents/transfers/takeovers etc work. Seems to think theres a good shout of us being bought this summer and that absolutely no one wants anywhere near sunderland, so I like him. Always liked Iain Macintosh as well but he doesn't appear on the regular TFS anymore as he does the football league show

Aye, agreed on Honigstein that particular argument was really weird. 

Its the first time I’ve heard that Preece tbh, the mackem accent really grates on me so he was already on thin ice then his craic on that particular episode was rancid. 

 

Fully agree about the ramble and OTC as well, I like that they don’t take it too seriously.

We come up quite a bit, even when we're not a car-wreck. They do seem to try and balance how often they talk about the big clubs, whereas the other pods will happily spend ten minutes talking about Man Utd, Liverpool and Arsenal every fucking episode.
