best sports talk show ever

Growing up in suburban Philadelphia back in the early 1970's I first heard sports talk radio when I listened to the attenuating signal from WBZ Boston of Eddie Andelman's Sports Huddle which I think is credited as the origin of that particular broadcast milieu. I'd never heard anything like it most of which as I remember was Eddie and his guests taking irreverent shots at Boston's New York rivals. I experienced the same wonderment of discovery when I first downloaded an episode of the World Football phone-in more than ten years ago. Dotun, Tim and the other regional experts along with the callers deliver a show which will not only expand your knowledge of the world's game but provide humor, insight, and a sense of community with our entire planet.

Best podcast in this universe.

After ten plus years of listening to Dotun, Tim, and many others (Big Wheel, Top Brass, The Colonel, SpringBokaJr., Neighmar!), this group has become like a weekly meetup at the pub with old friends. Thanks to the crew for making soccer that much more meaningful and enjoyable, I am a football fan, I am a soccer fan...

Great program

I have listened for years and really enjoy the program. Tim Vickery knows seemingly everything about every South American soccer player who ever existed. It baffles me when a caller will bring up some seemingly obscure player and Tim knows all about the players upbringing and has several anecdotes that he articulates so well that it provides a depth of knowledge that is so rare from a sports podcast. Great listen!

Love it, and ideal for those in the US who are trying to keep up

A great philosophical yet witty program. And for US nationals (like me) and others who are followers, but not close followers, of world football, very educational! Dotun Adebayo is the consummate host, a broadcasting pro who keeps things moving (and yes I appreciate his digressions!) Tim Vickery is a suave, super-knowledgable, and thoughtful about life-beyond-football pundit that anchors the program. (And I love his laugh.) The remaining experts lately have been outstanding. As a US national, I really appreciate Jon Arnold's knowledge and style, although for the record I also really liked Sean Wheelock anf the chemistry he had with Dotun and Tim (kind of like two cool older brothers with their enthusiastic likeable slightly loquacious younger bro). Mina Rzouki, Northern Seoul, Paul Sarahs, and the great Mark Gleeson are all exceptional. It's always a high point of the week!

Best Podcast Available

Insane how good this program is! Dotun is an amazing presenter. He creates a wonderful atmosphere for the show, keeps the show rolling, and has great knowledge of football himself. Tim Vickery is the best football journalist in the world. He has the highest level of knowledge of the sport and of the South American system. All the other pundits are amazing as well daring all the way back to Brassel and Whelock. Can’t think of enough praise for this show. download!!!!!!!!!
