The Guardian’s Football Weekly podcast kicks off season with new host Max Rushden

Max Rushden: “The real stars are the regulars, who between them know everything about football, I’m just there to ask them the questions.”

Already a familiar voice on the podcast, broadcaster and TV presenter Max will be marshalling Football Weekly’s regular panel of pundits including Barry Glendenning, Sid Lowe, Philippe Auclair, Paolo Bandini, Paul MacInnes, John Ashdown, Gregg Bakowski, Jonathan Wilson, Jacob Steinberg and many others, bringing punditry and analysis from the world of football to the podcast, says the publisher.

Originally launched to coincide with the 2006 World Cup, Football Weekly is now in its 11th season. Following live shows around the UK in 2016 and 2017, the Football Weekly live shows will also be returning later in the year, gearing up for an immense season across the leagues and next summer’s World Cup.

Max Rushden said: “I genuinely love the pod, and I love the Guardian. This is the best football podcast going. I know how much the audience love it, and I’m going to do everything to keep it that way. I’m really looking forward to all their feedback below the line! The only slight downside is I can no longer listen to it, that seems a little narcissistic. “The real stars are the regulars, who between them know everything about football, I’m just there to ask them the questions. I especially can’t wait to spend more time with Barry - so fun loving and enthusiastic, he makes me feel alive. I just hope Producer Jason doesn’t say anything about my name-dropping in his quote, because I’d hate to look like a one trick pony”

Jason Phipps, head of audio, Guardian News & Media said: “Max is a brilliant host - his insights, sense of humour and name-dropping with our regular guests will ensure Football Weekly continues to be unmissable for football fans. “We’re very pleased that this season of Football Weekly will be sponsored by Gillette. We look forward to working with them to bring the best football analysis and punditry to our listeners.” The Football Weekly team includes Barry Glendenning, Sid Lowe, Philippe Auclair, Paolo Bandini, Paul MacInnes, John Ashdown, Amy Lawrence, Gregg Bakowski, Jonathan Wilson, Jacob Steinberg, Simon Burnton, Barney Ronay and many others.

The Guardian Football Weekly podcast is available to listen to from the Guardian, Acast, Apple Podcasts, Spotify and other podcast services.
