Hello and welcome to the Football CFB website.
My name is Callum McFadden and I am a regular football fan – just like you – with an incredible amount of passion for the beautiful game at all levels.
I have set up Football CFB which stands for Callum’s Football Blog with the sole aim of producing interesting articles and podcasts about SPFL clubs and the goings on within the game across all levels that fans the length and breadth of the country can – hopefully – enjoy. I also produce content linked to clubs across the UK and abroad.
My podcast style to allow each guest to talk about their career and life in football openly with little interruption as they are the stars – not me. You can access all podcasts here https://anchor.fm/footballCFB and on your favourite streaming sites including Apple podcasts and Spotify.
Football CFB is led solely by myself with the aim of connecting with fans the length and breadth of the country through the medium of good football writing and broadcasting. Happy reading and happy listening!

Greenock Morton 4 – 4 Alloa To quote the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson: Football. Bloody hell.
