The Friday morning podcast where a special guest drops by to preview the biggest match across world football over the coming weekend.

It could be EURO 2024 or the North London Derby. There might be stories from behind the scenes about what it means to represent one of the clubs involved as a player or a fan. Or there might just be a big game in the Premier League or Copa América.

Some guests so far:


The legendary commentator joined before calling his 30th Champions League final for CBS.


A studio analyst on NBC’s coverage of the Premier League, Robbie came on ahead of MAN CITY-ARSENAL and came back for Championship Sunday.


The ESPN (and FIFA/EAFC) commentator called a good chunk of Bayer Leverkusen’s historic unbeaten run, and he also showcased his encyclopedic knowledge of German football.


The ESPN and NBC commentator ran through some of his favorite stadiums to commentate from ahead of the FA Cup final.

You can also check out the show on Apple Podcasts, Audible, Amazon, and Acast.


The show is embedded in a Friday morning newsletter listing all the matches worth your time this weekend across the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, the Bundesliga, and—this summer—Copa América and EURO 2024. Get kickoff times and storylines and what to watch for, all in your inbox to mark the beginning of the end of the workweek.

THE FOOTBALL WEEKEND is free, but if it’s something you value, I’d appreciate it if you could support it with a member subscription.
