It was a pleasure.

It always seemd that your show (the footy show) was on at unusual hours, and was one of the few things that i would scour the score for :>) i really appreciated your intelligence and verve. As a Canadian, i couldn’t believe that someone besides me knew what Subbuteo was.

All the best in the future, i am sorry you have to wear a tie. :>)

With KJ & Lames going to different networks that’s it I guess. Hopefully they can reconnect in the near future and being the show back.

I feel like I have lost a couple of close friends. I wish you all the best of luck with your next projects. If you ever roll through Orangeville, pints on me!
Cheers

I miss the days of Joe Ross and I arguing over our fantasy league teams in the chat room while some horrible Sunday Serie A game played in the background (you guys had TERRIBLE luck with games, if memory serves). I miss being shouted out on the vodcast when I threatened to hang a banner from my apartment building.

Looks like everyone’s landed on their feet, but here’s hoping for continued success. You are all a big part of my sports fandom, and you’ll have my support.

Who’s going to be there to tell me that I deserve better as a gooner? You don’t know what you had until it’s gone. Great job guys! Smart, witty and never belligerent, even if you were wrong. Kristian, your early Aston Villa pod was great. I plan to bring my boys to the Emirates, just to see their wide eyes.

I want to thank you guys for providing such a great product over the years.

James, I see you’ve already shown up on soccer central complete with suit and flashy shoes today. Good luck to you, and all the best.

KJ, I’ve considered you the best footy commentator in North America for a number of years know. I loved reading you post-game reports on the blog, and you tactical breakdowns as well. I wish you all the best and hope to see you back on TV in the very near future. ANY tv outlet would be getting a real gem by landing you.

All the best guys.

Thanks again for all the hard work in the past.

Cheers!

All the best to James and KJ in life and their future careers. The Footy Show provided the best and most original soccer content to be found on TV and the web with tons of great co-hosts and guest spots (Dobbs, Joe, Dichio, etc.). My wife and I used to listen to the podcast all time; you guys had us cracked up constantly. Was great to hear a bunch of bickering brothers who clearly enjoyed hanging out together as much as they loved chatting about the sport.
Thanks for the great episodes, raising my soccer IQ, and all the laughs. Hope Rogers has the sense put you both on Soccer Central (and let you co-host the Soccer Central weekend edition!).
Don’t go far fellas. The landscape of Canadian footy is already bleak enough; it would suffer even more without you.
Cheers!
