Welcome to Across The Pitch, a brand new website and podcast dedicated to bringing the best coverage of English soccer to fans in the United States. Our shows and blogs will focus on all things English football. My name is Phil Kennedy and my co-host Arran Airs will be bringing you coverage on a wide range of topics including in depth previews and recaps of matches, gambling and fantasy picks, random topical debates and more. We will focus on the EPL, but will also cover all of of the lower league throughout England and coverage of which teams are looking at promotion of relegation. In addition to this website, we will also be putting our podcasts on Spotify and other streaming services.
My co-host and I both currently live in Phoenix, Arizona and are both supporters of Arsenal in the EPL. We also both share a particular affection for Accrington Stanley FC, but we will talk more about that later. 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 that is available in ad nauseam for major American sports on ESPN and the other big sports networks. Our goal is to bring you 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 email@example.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 Manchester fan. Thank you for stopping by, and welcome to Across The Pitch.
