It's been a roller coaster start to the delayed European Championships with Christian Eriksen's on-pitch cardiac episode sending shockwaves across the world. That UEFA decided to keep the cameras rolling sparked an angry reaction from viewers that might not have dampened had the player not regained consciousness. Thankfully, courtesy of his teammat…
 
You wait 18 months for a chance to watch your team in person then you boo the players before kick-off as they take a stand against racial inequality and discrimination. Despite it happening twice in a week, manager Gareth Southgate, quite rightly, insists his players have no intentions of backing down. What happens next is anyone's guess, but the p…
 
It wasn’t a classic Premier League finale but Harry Kane probably won’t care. The man who wants to quit Spurs to win trophies helped himself to a couple of personal accolades on Sunday as he finished the season with the most goals and most assists. He’s quite good but is he £150million in a pandemic good? We’re set to find out this summer. Harry’s …
 
Youri Tielemans crashed home a cracking winner as Leicester City beat Chelsea to seal a first-ever FA Cup win. From top to bottom, the Foxes are a very likeable outfit. We weigh up their burgeoning credentials and those of their manager Brendan Rodgers and keeper Kasper Schmeichel. A painful weekend for Chelsea was compounded by defeat for the Wome…
 
Manchester City may have been denied the title on Sunday by Chelsea but courtesy of Leicester's win at Manchester United on Tuesday evening, Pep Guardiola's squad have now been crowned Premier League champions. That's two trophies this season for the Citizens but will they make it three in [insert host city of the Champions League final]? Only Thom…
 
Protesting against the club's Glazer owners on Sunday, Manchester United fans not only broke into Old Trafford but also forced the postponement of their side's clash with Liverpool. In the broadcast studios and on the back pages their actions seemed to split opinion. When football and politics meet, is it right that ex-pros are the ones providing t…
 
If anger against the proposed European Super League united fans last week, by the end of the weekend, it was VAR that was back earning the wrath of the average punter. A sending off for kicking the ball, a penalty disallowed for an offside that happened before kick-off, imprecise lines drawn by invisible men near Heathrow, should we just bin it off…
 
Close to midnight on Sunday, 12 of Europe's 'biggest' clubs stunned the football community by confirming the launch of a breakaway Super League created to replace the Champions League. Dressed up as a means to 'save football' by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, it has been derided by the game's various governing bodies, the domestic leagues,…
 
After a couple of weeks off - tune in to find out why - we're back with a bumper episode. In part one, we turn our attention to the weird feud between Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the duo traded barbs after United beat Spurs 3-1. We're not sure if it was about parenting, cheese or if we missed the point completely. Arsenal and Liverpoo…
 
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer paid the price for fielding a weakened Manchester United team as Leicester eased into the FA Cup semi-finals at their expense. The Foxes will face Southampton on one side of the draw with Manchester City or Chelsea awaiting them in the final. Who'll be celebrating at Wembley? Brighton's 3-0 win at Newcastle means Graham Potter'…
 
An action-packed north London derby saw Arsenal come from behind to beat Sp*rs. Tongues were wagging before the game even kicked off when Mikel Arteta dropped captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, after that the talking points just kept on coming; Lamela's worldie and sending off, Lacazette's penalty, Kane's latest assault. Finally, a game lived up to…
 
Manchester City's 21-game winning run went head-to-head with Manchester United's 21-game streak without defeat on the road...and, to everyone's surprise, it was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men who came out victorious. Given the Red Devils are still 11 points behind their neighbours, Pep still looks odds-on to have the last laugh. All the same, how big a…
 
How did a quick free-kick turn into a week-long saga? Lee Mason is probably asking himself exactly that after a weird mix-up at the AMEX saw Lewis Dunk's 'goal' for Brighton disallowed after two peeps of a whistle and a VAR review. You had to be there. In North London, Gareth Bale and Willian have started to show signs of life. The Welshman has dev…
 
After a ridiculously long wait, Everton fans finally had the chance to celebrate a victory at Anfield. Sure, a ridiculous penalty decision played a part but nothing is going to take the shine off a memorable evening for the Toffees who continue to flirt with the Champions League place. They couldn't, could they? Fantasy Football is under the spotli…
 
Three defeats on the bounce have led to Jurgen Klopp conceding the title. Having started the season so well, where on earth has it gone wrong for Liverpool? And how do they fix it? Surely it comes down to more than the absence of Virgil van Dijk? The Reds' loss is very much Manchester City's gain. Pep Guardiola's side have won 16 games in a row - a…
 
The games keep coming in the Premier League and Manchester United keep doing their level best to make the biggest as boring as possible. The Red Devils added the scalp of Arsenal to their collection of 'Big Six' 0-0 draws. On the other side of London, Xherdan Shaqiri and Mo Salah put West Ham to bed with a goal of top, top quality. The Reds' title …
 
Frank Lampard's time in charge of Chelsea came to an abrupt end on Monday as Roman Abramovich pulled the trigger on his own club legend. Was his demise inevitable? Sitting 9th in the Premier League having spent £200 million would suggest so, but still, how did it come to this? Manchester United and Manchester City continue to build momentum. Not on…
 
It wasn't so long ago that John Stones was being linked with a move away from Manchester City. Now the England international has become a central figure for Pep Guardiola as his squad mount a low-key title charge. We reflect on the 26-year-old's surprising renaissance. In the week that Wayne Rooney called time on his playing career and Mesut Özil d…
 
Covid-19 may have robbed football of its fans but the FA Cup still had a sprinkling of its traditional third-round magic. Sure, Spurs tonked minnows Marine and Liverpool eventually taught Villa's work experience kids a lesson, but Crawley's skewering of Leeds, Blackpool's penalty win over West Brom and Mike Dean stopping play at Stockport because o…
 
What better way to end 2020 than a podcast dedicated solely to '... and finally' questions? Thanks to everyone who sent in their suggestions on Twitter, we ran through a fair few of them and then asked each other a few of our own. Thanks for listening throughout this oddest of years. We genuinely appreciate it! If you're at a loose end and feeling …
 
Are Manchester United actually good now? After smashing six past Leeds United at Old Trafford, Ole's boys are threatening to mount a title challenge. Can they sustain their latest purple patch or are they destined to trip up again? As for Marcelo Bielsa's team, the neutrals seem to be in love but is the fawning a tad patronising? Liverpool's 7-0 wi…
 
West Brom are the first club to press the panic button this season. Already sucked into a relegation battle, they've sacked lovable Slaven Bilic and turned to Sam Allardyce to save them. He's done it many times before, but is Big Sam the right man for the job? Chelsea were going great guns this time last week, then they lost a couple of games and m…
 
After a nine-month wait, football fans finally returned to stadiums across England at the weekend. For the majority, it was an emotional opportunity to enjoy familiar surroundings with friends and family. For others, a chance to remind the world that football's fight against racism still has mountains to climb. The boos aimed at players taking a kn…
 
Is Edinson Cavani proof that you can have a completely haphazard approach to the transfer market and still come up trumps? The Uruguayan scored a cracking brace at the weekend to seal a terrific Manchester United comeback at Southampton. Naturally, we have to ask, is he the new Ibra? On Sunday night, a sickening clash of heads between David Luiz an…
 
Have Manchester City blown the title already? Are Spurs serious contenders? Can anybody really compete with Liverpool who continue to make light work of the absence of key stars? A quarter of the way through the season and we're already wondering if the title race is over. Arsene Wenger was this week's guest on Radio 4's Desert Island Discs. The Fr…
 
So it turns out that making footballers travel the globe to play international football during a pandemic causes problems. Who could have foreseen that? Covid-19 cases are on the rise and knackered players are getting injured. All in all, it's not been a good week for Premier League managers waiting at home to find out who from their squads is stil…
 
There have never been so many penalties in football, so perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that players are finding new and ingenious ways to miss them. But we are. From Kevin de Bruyne to Zlatan Ibrahimovic via Ademola Lookman, missed spot kicks were all the rage last weekend. We talk tactics from 12-yards out. Having beaten Manchester United, Arse…
 
Not many points separate a lot of teams; yep, the Premier League is more unpredictable than ever, as evidenced by a crazy away win percentage stat. After seven games, which clubs are defrauding the public and which deserve their league place? We decide. A couple of contentious penalties got pundits frothing at the mouth this weekend. Will VAR end d…
 
Do English managers get a fair crack of the whip? Are they held to different standards? Frank Lampard, who 100% earned the right to manage a top four club after a single season in charge of Derby County, doesn't think so. To be fair to the Chelsea manager, it is a bit odd that so few natives have had a chance to coach the Premier League's big dogs.…
 
Project Big Picture is dead. Long live Project European Premier League! Yep, after last week's rage-inducing but ultimately doomed power-grab by the Premier League's 'Big Six', this week we're treated to a new idea. An even crazier one, formulated with a helping hand from FIFA and backed by some of Europe's biggest clubs. Will this one last longer …
 
It was a week of penalty drama at international level as Scotland, Northern Ireland & the Republic of Ireland simultaneously tested their nerves from 12-yards in the hope of moving one step closer to next summer's European Championships. Matt Doherty can take heart from the fact his miss was far from the most traumatic your hosts have experienced. …
 
After a month off, we're back with a bang courtesy of a Premier League that's thriving on ridiculous results. Dean Smith's swashbuckling, new-look Aston Villa smashed seven past Liverpool and a shambolic Manchester United imploded against Spurs. Will the rest of the league take heart from the champions' collapse? Are United doomed to mediocrity und…
 
Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden went to Iceland and all they got was a lousy 1-0 win and a ticking off for trying to invite girls back to their hotel. Hung, drawn and quartered by the media, we're willing to put their exploits down to youthful exuberance. We've all been there. By and large, the Nations League played out as expected; empty stadiums a…
 
As one season ends, another begins. Arsenal won the Community Shield on penalties at Wembley, but are they actually any good or is this all just a mirage? Liverpool have a title to defend and Jurgen Klopp seems happy enough to do it with the same set of players. In contrast, Chelsea are spending like there's no tomorrow and Lionel Messi might, mayb…
 
And just like that, the 2019/20 European football season came to a close. Bayern Munich rule the continent for a sixth time after beating PSG 1-0 in Lisbon. Did the final live up to expectations? Is Qatar's Parisian project back at square one? We reflect on a night that left Neymar in tears. Sevilla also experienced the joy of six, as they once aga…
 
With domestic football done and dusted all attention has turned to the Europa League and Champions League being hosted in Lisbon and Cologne/Dusseldorf respectively. The knockout stages of each have been reduced to single-leg affairs and there are plenty of fascinating narratives in play. Will Manchester United's old boys come back to haunt them? W…
 
Arsenal's roller-coaster season ended on a high note at Wembley on Saturday as they beat Chelsea 2-1 to claim the FA Cup. Will Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang now stay at the club? Did Mikel Arteta really have to pay homage to Pep Guardiola after the game? Can Frank Lampard be satisfied with his work this season? We chew over the fallout as the player he…
 
On the final day of the Premier League's longest ever season, Leicester completed their post-lockdown bottle job as Manchester United and Chelsea snuck into the Champions League places. But we're not sure who had the best season of the three. Aston Villa, AKA Jack Grealish, secured their top-flight status with a draw at West Ham leaving Bournemouth…
 
Arsenal and Chelsea have won 15 of the last 30 FA Cup finals between them, so perhaps it's not a surprise that they beat Manchester City and United respectively to set up a second Wembley showdown in three years. Is the oldest domestic cup competition being treated more or less seriously than in recent years? Leeds United finally confirmed an end t…
 
News of Jack Charlton's passing at the weekend sparked emotional tributes from across the world of football. The Leeds United legend, World Cup winner and Ireland's famed manager of the eighties and nineties was a giant of the beautiful game and one of its funniest and most charismatic figures. We discuss why he stood out from the crowd during our …
 
Now that Liverpool have been crowned champions, the Premier League's chasing pack seems slightly disorientated about whether they should bother stringing a run of results together. United have closed the gap on Chelsea and Arsenal have decided they aren't as bad as everyone thought a couple of weeks ago. Is it too little too late for Mikel Arteta? …
 
After 30 years, Liverpool have been crowned champions of England. Wogan's emotions got the better of him in the end. We discuss why that happened given his increasingly complicated relationship with the club. The big challenge for Jurgen Klopp is keeping this group of players motivated. Have they peaked or is it the start of a dynasty? There won't …
 
So... the Premier League is back and the title race is getting tasty. Jurgen Klopp's stuttering Reds dropped points in the Merseyside derby which, coupled with a brace of wins for Man City, means the gap at the top is down to 20-points. Finally, things are getting interesting! Well, not really, but we can dream. Football without fans is taking some…
 
So this is it... after three months, the Premier League finally returns. And not a moment too soon! The excitement was all a bit too much for the country's far-right extremists who without any football decided at the weekend that statues might appreciate their terrace chants instead. If the sight of the capital being sprayed with piss and racist sl…
 
The countdown to the restart of the Premier League is officially on! Friendlies have been played, fixtures have been confirmed and broadcasters are ready to welcome us into their warm embrace. We look ahead to the games that float our boat, discuss fake fan noise and pick which bit of football's new tweaks we might want to keep. If all the games ar…
 
We start Episode 50 taking a moment to reflect on the anti-racism protests that have flared up across the globe since the death of unarmed African-American George Floyd at the hands of Minnesota police. What is happening is important, too important for all of us to ignore... even us privileged, middle-class, London-living white guys with a sports p…
 
The Bundesliga has only just returned, but is it now over? Bayern's 1-0 win at Dortmund opens a seven-point gap at the top of the table that could see Europe's football fans turn their attention elsewhere. It's just as well the Premier League is edging closer to match action. The players are back in training and the big talking point, naturally, is…
 
The satisfying sound of leather hitting onion bag was the big talking point of the Bundesliga's long-awaited comeback. Yes, it was a bit weird without packed terraces but that didn’t stop us tuning in. Not satisfied with empty seats, K-League outfit FC Seoul tried to spice things up in their stands with some sex doll supporters. Cue a grovelling ap…
 
Football without fans, will it be any good? We got our first taster at the weekend as Jeonbuk Motors beat Suwon Bluewings in South Korea's K-League thanks to a goal by a 41-year-old former Middlesbrough player. It's a start. Perhaps the Bundesliga can step things up a notch? We cast an eye over the upcoming fixtures and pick sides we'll likely lose…
 
Neutral grounds, shorter games, no relegation, CGI fans... the Premier League is so desperate to get games going again that 'Project Restart' is leaving no stone unturned. Money is the driving force, of course. But will it tear the game apart? Looking further ahead, how will Brexit affect transfers? The FA have pounced on an opportunity to promote …
