Shearer said: “There’s potentially going to be former teammates in the mix so there’s some big decisions to be made between the three of us. We’ve played with and watched some of the best over the years so I’m hoping all of this experience comes across. If not, blame Gary and Ian if you disagree with the top 10.”
Wright added: “All three of us have so much fun in the studio so to give us our own podcast on BBC Sounds is a great move for Match Of The Day. I’m excited to get in there and make some tough decisions with the guys. We know not everyone is going to agree with our final top 10 lists but we want the podcast to create a wider conversation and buzz, so get on the socials and tell us what you think… Also, Gary has been promising for ages to have Alan and I over for lunch, so this podcast means it’s finally going to happen.”
The first episode of Match Of The Day: Top 10 is available from March 18th on BBC Sounds, with a new episode dropping every Wednesday.
