I gave up on radio years ago mostly listen to podcasts now as I have a similar commute and most of them are 1 hour.

If you go on to itunes or whichever supplier you use you can normally search football related podcasts.

The ones I listen to regularly are

General football

Guardian Football Weekly
The Game (The Times Podcast)
Football Ramble
The Totally Football Show

Most of these do 2 shows a week a monday weekend review show and a thursday weekend preview show.

Man Utd specific ones.

United We Stand
United Rant
Red Voices

Most of these are weekly shows

European Football Ones

On the Continent ~ It's presented by 2 of the guys from the football ramble plus 2 guest pundits and they discuss all the European football on a weekly basis.

5 live also have a few

Football daily ~ The monday night club is well worth a listen probably the best radio show around presented by Mark Chapman.
Sports Specials ~ Normally one hour specials covering all sports I only listen to the cricket and boxing ones but there's regular athletics, cycling, tennis ones so you can just pick and choose.
World Football Phone In ~ If you like phone ins this one is fantastic it features Tim Vickery who is a south american expert then they normally have 1 other guest who covers either Europe, Africa, Asia or North America so if you're interested in what's going on all over the world it's well worth a listen.

The best thing I'd say is download a few and see what you like podcasting is huge now.

Podcasting is definitely the way to go.

I listen to a few that JSP listens to. On The Continent, The Football Ramble, United We Stand, United Rant/Rant Cast I think it's called now, Football Weekly, The Game. All worth your time.

The Sky Sports Football Podcast wraps up the weeksn football but only 15 mins long. Also does the Gary Neville summary and Sunday Suplment.

There also The Football Writers Podcast. The Big Interview with Graham Hunter. Also highly recommendd Quickly Kevin; Will he score. The 90's football Show.

Aside from Football. Inside The Huddle is a great NFL podcast.

forgive my tecnho stupidity. Can I listen to these on my phone direct, or do I download them or what? If both options are available would the same amount of 4g be used for both? Because I have no idea about phones etc 4g is no problem for me, I took out a deal for 80 gig a month of which I only use about 2.

Download the app Acast - And then use that to stream podcast.

Would assume it uses the same amount of data either way but it's relatively small files.

I've been listening to podcast which have been good but I've recently been listening to 'The United Stand' and 'The People's Person' on Youtube on my way home which I really like. I just stream it from my phone whilst driving. United Stand seem to do a 20/25 min videos at least once a day and it's all good debating points. Defo worth a listen.

That United Stand is the worst it's that div from twitter Mark something isn't it?

He decided to become a Utd fan and launch a youtube channel and is a right arse on twitter.

Listened to him for about 30 seconds once and couldn't handle the cringe see him pop up on twitter every now and again last thing I remember seeing was him bragging that he'll only go and watch Utd on a corporate day out once a season because that's how he prefers the game.

I have been listening to West Cork on Audible. It’s very much like the serial podcast style.

I will need to give these a go. I never really understood the term Podcast until reading this.

First few seasons of Peter Crouch are very good but it's tailing off a bit just struggling to come up with fresh material I think.

yeah, I've listened to a few, not that great to be honest. It sounds like they think they're great.

I read rank Skinner has a podcast, which is his radio show with all the music removed or something, that's meant to be good.
