They should have done the overview after the United City game. I felt sad when it was predicted it would be a draw.

Enjoyed the Chelsea fan on the Friday show. Never thought Iíd say that!

Also - saying I donít have permission to listen to the Weekender. Seem to get that about one show a week at the moment. Is that more likely to be an issue with my podcast app?

On the subject of videos, am I the only one that finds the in-studio videos a bit out of focus? Bumping the resolution does not help.

I don't watch much of the video stuff but the sound on them is frequently shoddy, either clipping or filmed in apparent caverns.

The focusing may be due to the gear used to record, autofocus struggling or who knows what. Itís not a major issue, just seems an average DSLR could pull off a sharper picture quality.

Don't think this is fair or accurate to be honest. There are issues from time to time but they are rare given the amount of video we put out. If you don't watch much you're probably not best placed to comment on the frequency of issues, mate. When we do have them we know, and we're always looking to improve.

Just installed it. Looks good - simple and clean.

That said, trying to download the review show and it's failing each time with a "Download Error: Connection timed out".

 Videos work an absolute treat on the app.

Very slick, very well produced app I have to say.  Has a very professional feel to it that Iíd expect of a big company.


The audio all says itís premium so I canít listen to it. I am a subscriber so maybe thatís teething problems?

Genuinely impressed with the app though. Really is quality

(Although Iíve now gone to settings, itís automatically checked my subscriptions and itís all ok now).

Working perfectly so far - audio and video

Couple of questions

1. Can the audio part of the video material play in the background / with the screen off

2. Is there's a way to increase the text sizes of the articles.

3. A 'dark' mode (white text on black background) would be brilliant.

Pretty sure they said that would be a thing at the end of the season when the videos go behind the paywall.

Because they're still on YouTube at the moment it doesn't work.

Do you need to log in every time you come back to it? Maybe that can be changed in the settings. And the app has frozen for me so canít do anything at the moment. Will do the classic delete and reload.

Came in to ask the same thing. Assuming there is (or will be) an option to 'stay signed in'?

Also, when you download an episode, how long are those downloads retained? I downloaded a couple of episodes yesterday and this morning there was nothing showing in that area. Do they get deleted once they've been listened to? Do they get deleted once you've been signed out?

App looks good but the one thing it desperately needs after spending an hour or so on it, is a night mode. A lot of the best apps and websites offer the option to flip to a dark theme which is incredibly useful for reading in bed/low light - the only time I get to spend any time catching up on footie. Feels like my retinas are scorched after staring at the sea of high contrast pages for this long.
