Yeah good podcast that one. I'm a big fan of the non-football shows like that and AFQ. Some interesting conversation about the history of the city

To my shame, only just getting round to subscribing. Itís been on a list of things to do for far too long now.

Any recommendations for must-listen podcasts on the TAW player? Iíll try and sift through most of it in time but just wondered what people thought were the stand-out pods (AFQís etc) and Iíll delve into those first. Got a long-haul flight upcoming in the next week so itíll be great material.

Additionally, am I right in assuming that when Iím subscribed, I can just download these to the harddrive of my phone/ipod? Ie: I wonít need an online connection throughout will I?

Thanks fellas.

(PS: The Alonso interview will obviously go at the top of the list  ;D)

Get on the What We Call History of the 07/08 season. There's 9 parts and the length makes Lawrence of Arabia feel like filler content.

It's a sprawling, passionate analysis of the pain, anger and fleeting joy of that season. I think it would last you a full round trip to Mars.

Phenomenal lads, absolutely smashing the content. The Alonso interview, the St Etienne special, the pink after Arsenal, the new teamtalk shows, all superb. Its definitely the best fiver I spend every month.
Nice one for all the effort.

You really shouldn't have, but it's very kind.

We've had a play with it and it's much clearer now, just delete and redownload.

Had the same problem, had to stop listening but will try the new version. TAW are doing a fantastic job but it's the one feedback I would give to you  sometimes I find the sound levels a bit challenging especially when you have a contributor on the phone. The sound level in the studio can be much louder than the phone and it can make it quite difficult to listen to especially on headphones. If you turn it right up to hear the phone contributor you get deafened by when it switches back to the studio. It's not a problem on most shows but it's a shame when it happens as I feel I'm missing out on some good content.  That said, it's great value and the quality of content is very high. Hats off to you for the scoops too.

Is this possibly to do with the technology that's being used? We've been brought up on the likes of 5Live which, I'm guessing, use the most expensive equipment money can buy. That sets an unfair standard when comparing to a far smaller operation.

The audio has been getting progressively better on the Wrap since it began - the lads have posted about it a few times on social media, from memory. This was just unlucky I think. I guess it was needs must on the day. A lavalier mic would have been ideal but it's not the sort of thing you can just nip out and get if you don't have one.

The re-upload is a huge improvement.

Just got around to listening to the Alonso interview and I'd like to add my voice to those recommending The Anfield Wrap.

I've been paying a fiver a month since they launched TAW Player and it's amazing value for money - loads of different opinions and formats, and if you don't like one podcast there's usually another along within a day. The content is excellent.

And the interviews are outstanding. They get interesting people and ask them interesting questions - can't ask for more than that.

It's brilliant to see them going from strength to strength. If you don't subscribe, it's well worth a fiver to see what it's all about. Get on it.

Totally agree with Steve Graves on Cantona. So overrated. Never managed 20 league goals despite playing up front for the best team in a dreadful league and taking pens.

With Ferguson and the class of 92, United would have won all those league titles whether they'd signed him or not.

Think the 95/96 season is what makes people (not me!) rate him highly. Felt like the bastard scored a lot of important goals in that run in although you could just as easily argue they won the League through their defence that year as I think they went on a run of 1-0 wins in that time,  bit like in 08/09.

So, it's just me that got a previous version of Ban This Filth this week?  My download is the one which had Guttmann on and the topics were worst World Cup, worst song and something about media coverage of football (bad camera angles for penalties, too much focus on controversies rather than tactics).  I think there was a reference to it being recorded after the Manchester United game.

Yes Andy, I have Pocket Casts, so it could be that.

Sounds like I missed a good one!
