Not The Top 20
The majority of sports media tend to cover the Premier League, meaning that sometimes the English Football League can go under the radar. Whilst that balance is changing, there is still a substantial difference in coverage.
Providing two episodes a week, the Not The Top 20 podcast tries to cover the 72 clubs of the EFL with the same level of analysis, research and knowledge. The hosts, George Elek and Ali Maxwell, can often be found working on Sky Sports’ EFL coverage as pundits.
