  1. Well we have talked about this for such a long time and now we have finally done it – the Podcast.

    It is the first podcast so constructive criticism and feedback would be very much appreciated.

    If you like it then please let your friends know.


    BRAVO enjoyed it very much great insight.Michelle needs to get a credit.I don’t know what it would take but if you could get Nick Webster in the future that would be great.if it works for you Bobby it would be great for future big matches and other important matches.two thumbs up!

    Great podcast! I love it, why has it taken so long for you to only now think of this! Is this going to be available on Itunes for subscription? Bobby & Eoin, no striking duo better than the two of you in all of Europe. It’s just a shame it’s only 30mins long 😀

  5. Ogo Sylla – It has been discussed a long time but lets just say that sometimes it needs some people to just roll up their sleeves and to get it done. No decision on I tunes yet – we need to see what the response is going to be like first. Just under 30 minutes was no accident – we wanted something that was in a small enough chunk that most people would not have to set aside an inordinate amount of time to listen.

  6. Soccerlogical says:

    Any chance you can give the listener an option to save an mp3 format via RSS?

    Love Michelle’s intro (she’s aces!) but let’s try to refrain from guests who only bring cliches to the table (i.e Trecker or Webster). And perhaps a low volume CL theme song playing under you guys talking would make it a bit more “busy”.


  7. Soccerlogical says:

    PS In Nesta and Silva, Milan have a very good CB pairing. IMO, Silva is the best all around young CB in the game and Seedorf should have enough in the tank to fill the link position.

    As I said earlier, this is a good test to see what Dawson and Crouch are really made of. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Arry start Pav with VdV behind him for the second leg.

  8. SL – I will ask the Mp3 question. I don’t know the answer.

  9. Gus Keri says:


    This was great.

    I like the fact that it was different from your usual FSR. So, there is no repetition.

    But did you say “Arselona vs Barcelona”? and did you intend to say it? It was good, I thought.

    More importantly, I understood every word Eoin said. LOL.

  10. Russell Berrisford says:

    I enjoyed it.

    I think that 30 minutes is about right (podcasts that are much longer than that always feel like they are taking out a big piece of my day!).

    I also like the new website format which makes it easier to track back to articles.

  11. Michael D says:

    Yay, I’ve been waiting for a podcast with you Bobby. Thanks for the insight as always!

  12. Gus
    “Arselona vs Barcelona” was on purpose.
    We were thinking of trying to sell a sponsorship to Rosetta Stone.

    Russell – thanks for the feedback.

  13. shmish says:

    Nicely done gents, thanks!

  14. Gillian says:

    YAY! In love with the podcast! Thank you thank you thank you for your insights.

    Been watching Arsenal all season, and I have to say they have zero chance vs. Barcelona on Wednesday. Technically, I’ll be able to watch, but do I really want to witness the slaughter? Probably not.

  15. Gbenga says:

    Great stuff Bobby… I enjoyed the podcast and excellent analysis from you and Eoin… It was crisp, clear, and the sound was very authentic. Expecting more to come…

  16. WileyJ says:

    Top class. This is by far the best podcast I’ve listened to. I’m normally not one for podcast, due to many being short on substance & lacking a professional quality, making the product hard to listen to i.e. boring. Not so with your work here. I was impressed with the presentation & content. I will continue to be a regular listener.

    Well done Bobby, Eoin , Michelle & Luke

  17. thergenrader says:

    Ahoy there,

    I queue up several podcasts and listen to them on my long commute and don’t have much time in front of my computer. Having an iTunes download or even just downloading the podcast as an MP3 file would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks so much.

  18. Theo van Arshavregas says:

    I was trying to access the podcast and was unsuccessful. I’ve never heard a podcast but have only heard of them. My computer is down at the moment and am using my iPhone. Any suggestions for the technologically challenged folk out there like myself?

  19. Mike says:

    Well done! Is the idea to do this once a week if the feedback is positive? Also, do you have a word or two to say about Richard Hastings’ retirement. I am sure you have touched on it during the show, but I wasn’t able to tune in. I didn’t understand he was struggling with injuries, just that he was out of contract. Could he have helped, say, a new MLS team from his home province of BC?

  20. We are looking to do another podcast on Friday on Champions League. As long as people are enjoying them in good numbers I think we will continue to do them.

    It looks to me as if Richard Hastings just came to the end. He has been unable to get a Scottish club since last summer. If he can’t get an offer from a Scottish club than he is going to struggle in MLS I am afraid.

    Football Weekly.
    Football Weekly extraaaa.
    James Richardson.
    Barry Glendenning.
    Eat your hearts out!

    Doesn’t sound like you though Bobby.
    Or maybe it’s just my comp(?).

  22. Bryan says:

    …and I like what Eoin has to say.
    Might have a bit of competition there Bobby!

  23. Grant says:

    Bobby has a podcast! Now please put this on iTunes. I need to add this to all my other soccer podcasts that I listen to while exercising my dog at the offleash park.
