So as we all know football journalism is everywhere and much of it is shite.

From lazy pundits, to cliched reporting to Twitter, Talksport and fanzone style reporting there is no ends to where you can read, listen or watch and be as ill-informed as you were to begin with.

So for people who want to be better informed where do we go?

I don't one form of media or info will be sufficient. No one newspaper, radio station, social media or magazine will cover what a consumer requires completely in any subject.

So if anyone can recommend a sports writer, radio host, podcast etc that they think is genuinely knowledgeable and informative please let me know.

I'll always read anything by Matthew Syed in The Times. Doesn't do scoops but his analyses and insights are often illuminative.

& here's his Tweeter : https://mobile.twitter.com/AlasdairGold?ref_src=twsrc^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^author
Really not sure about this chap.

He's got a very dubious background of posting on very dodgy websites.

Graham Hunter winds me up with his arse kissing in his podcast but he knows his Barcelona stuff. He also seems to know about Man City due to his links with Pep. He was also one of the only journos who seemed to know that Poch was willing to let Walker go as he was questioning his tactics and rotation policy.

I'm a massive fan of Paul Jiggins and Neil Ashton...they're always bang on the money.
