We’ve got yet another full podcast for you this week thanks to a jam-packed weekend of action around the world of football. On the top of our minds was “Derby Saturdray” featuring the North London and Merseyside grudge matches, along with an interesting round of fixtures in the rest of the Premier League. We’ve also […]

Ah vacation… you were much needed. After a month of World Cup to digest, my brain and Twitter feed certainly needed the rest. So after spending a week with my family on an isolated lake in South Carolina, I’m now back and ready to dip my foot into the pools of world football once again. But […]

It’s not been a good week for Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola. After suffering a humiliating loss at home to Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League semifinal — the 4-0 scoreline also being his heaviest ever defeat — and losing close friend and fellow former Barcelona boss Tito Villanova to complications from throat […]

Despite tough weather conditions last week in Great Britain, it was busy last week with an almost full slate of midweek Premier League action plus an almost full round of FA Cup fixtures — the “almosts” thanks to some postponed matches due to said weather. We cover all of that on this week’s podcast, but that’s not all. […]

Fret not dear readers… after a fortnight off, the “Pic of the Week” has returned.

The shock waves of the thorough beatings received by Barcelona and Real Madrid are still reverberating a week later as we head into the return ties in Spain. Meanwhile, the […]

The aftermath of a high-profile drubbing in an important match is often chaotic. For the side on the receiving end of the pummeling, the humiliation suffered on such a public stage can often have long-lasting effects. Managerial changes, playing staff overhauls and even a shift in playing ethos are all frequent effects of the fallout. Conversely […]
