I saw this thread on the Roma blog and liked the idea of making a listing of good football/soccer podcasts , so I've decided to rip it off and see what we can produce here on MM.
I'll begin by listing my recommendations, and then will add in others' recommendations as comments stream in.
Real Madrid & La Liga
- Cure for the ultimate madridista itch. Listen to a few madridistas debate the team's play, tactics, transfers, drama and all things related to the football team.
- Phil Kiltro and Sid Lowe discuss Spanish football on a weekly basis, while also adding in a little bit of fun be it with lame jokes or interesting tales/history.
- Biweekly podcasts about teams and performances across Europe covered by journalists featuring lots of ex-players.
- They cover mostly EPL and but discuss La Liga, Serie A, and talk lots of UCL. Sid Lowe comes on often to discuss Madrid and Barcelona.
- Easily my favorite football podcast. A milanista and a Man U fan team up to 'cover every football related issue on and off the pitch', and the podcast certainly lives up to the claim. The only negative I have is that their coverage of la liga is a bit thin and at times uninformed.
Independent & Niche
- Podcast for the statsbomb website by Ben Pugsley (shuddertothink) and Ted Knutson. It's good way to keep up with latest analytics trends and matches in Europe in a light way.
- Tyrrell Meertins is a football writer who watches football widely and likes to focus on tactics, a bit like Michael Cox.
