    actually really funny

    early highlights

    - saying Timmy Chandler looks like a lovechild between Rio Ferdinand and Joleon Lescott

    - the love of Ian Darke's "Queen's English"

    - use of Cherundolo as a verb

    - Drogba/Altidore's touch is like a "dog chasing a balloon"

    couple other funny lines I cant remember, but definitely worth the listen

    I started listening to them a couple of weeks back. I am a friend of the pod and my purchases of Boddington's have gone through the roof.

    Glad to see others are enjoying it as well :respek:

    It's probably been mentioned on here but Football Weekly from the Guardian is amazing. Comes out on Monday and Thursday every week during the season.

    TORONTO RAPTORS
    This one could not be easier. You draw pleasure by cheering a crap team from a crap town located somewhere over the border. Throw in the fact that the squad consists of an inexperienced lineup led by a coach eager to prove himself, and the detail that the team logo features an airborne creature, and you can virtually spell Toronto S-W-A-N-S-E-A C-I-T-Y. Or “Clwb Pêl-droed Dinas Abertawe” in your newly adopted Welsh tongue.

    Missed this thread, but a friend told me about it tonight. Listening to most recent one right now.

    Is it worth listening to past episodes or should I just listen to the next ones?

    Also, anyone else listen to any other soccer podcasts? Saw another soccer podcast with the Guardian writers

    I wouldnt bother listening to past episodes. They basically just talk about the previous weeks game for 40 minutes and then answer emails and have special guest for about 20 minutes. Def. listen to the upcoming ones tho...

    It depends on how much time you have really. I have a 45 minute work commute twice a day so I'll listen to old pods solely for the banter.

    Love Men In Blazers but BleedinGreen's post from last year is correct, the Football Weekly by the Guardian is the best soccer pod out there.

    I love when Rog starts talking about Chelsea and Davo lets him go until he can't take it anymore. Usually after he says something along the lines of "just when we thought john terry may be human...."
