Phil, Arran, and Matt currently live in Phoenix, Arizona. Phil and Arran are both supporters of Arsenal, while Matt is a Chelsea supporter. All 3 of us are also supporters and season ticket members of the USL Phoenix Rising. We have recently been joined by a 4th member, Darren Woodhead, our English consultant, who will write regular blogs, and make occasional appearances on the show. Darren has written several books, including his latest master work, 50 Years of Accrington Stanley, which will be out in July. At Across the Pitch, we all share a passion for Accrington Stanley, and have recently formed a chapter of the Official Accrington Stanley Supporters Club of North America.

Send Us Your Listener Questions

As fans from "across the pond" one of the most difficult things to find in the USA is good coverage of English football outside of the big teams. Our goal is to bring that kind of in depth coverage not only American listeners, but also share our unique views with our friends "Across The Pond". Our goal is to bring a truly unique, and uniquely entertaining perspective on the world of association football (our preferred nomenclature). We are also looking forward to hearing questions and comments from our listeners and readers.

Email us anytime at contact@acrossthepitch.com if you have a question you would like for us to answer on the podcast, any comments about previous broadcasts, or any suggestions on what we can do to make the show better. We promise to answer you question on the air, even if you are a Spurs fan! Thank you for stopping by, and welcome to Across The Pitch.

Pundits with Pints is a collaborative effort produced between four soccer podcasts from Phoenix, Arizona. PRFC Fan Show, Az Soccer Radio, Rising As One Pod, and of course Across The Pitch are the 4 contributing shows. We record this show once a month, and topics focus on both things related to our home to Phoenix Rising, and any other hot button topics from the world of association football.
