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.
