    Upfront: Everton get Hammered, the FA Cup returns, and some bizarre officiating

    Flo, Rachel and Chloe get amongst those fighting to clamber out of the WSL mid-table mire, as West Ham continued their rise this weekend while compounding Everton's worries.
    We also touch on some bizarre officiating and wonder what needs to be done to better support WSL and Championship referees, before looking ahead to the return of the FA Cup as Bridgewater United look to continue their giant-killing streak.

    On The Continent: Zizou to PSG?

    On The Continent: Zizou to PSG?

    Dotun, Andy and David Cartlidge recap a two-day Sevillan derby where fan trouble ended the first game prematurely, before Betis snuck the behind-closed-doors replay. Ah, Seville, never change.
    We also revel in some glorious cross-continental capers, as Zinedine Zidane's potential move to PSG might start one almighty chain reaction. We also celebrate the return of Hatem Ben Arfa and wonder why we love Europe's unpredictable, mercurial geniuses.

    Upfront: Manchester madness, Chloe's super Eagles, and the Matildas’ hunt for revenge

    Both sides of Manchester continued their impressive WSL form this weekend. Flo, Chloe and Rachel are here with the lowdown on those chasing that elusive Champions League spot.
    We also eye up the FA Championship contenders, as Liverpool and London City Lionesses go about their business in wholly different ways while Chloe's Crystal Palace snap at their heels. We also look ahead to the Asian Cup and are left baffled by the FIFA Best Awards - shock.

    On The Continent: Inter the dragon

    On The Continent: Inter the dragon

    It's Super Cups galore on today's edition of On The Continent as Dotun, Andy and Nicky Bandini recap a cracking win for Inter over Juventus in last night's Supercoppa - with a 120th-minute winner from Alexis Sánchez, no less! 
    The Saudi Arabian edition of the Spanish Super Cup also raises a few eyebrows and we pore over Bayern's decision to make Kingsley Coman the highest-paid employee of any company in the universe.

    Upfront: Birmingham stun the Gunners, the transfer window opens, and financial stability in the Championship

    Upfront is back for 2022! Join Flo Lloyd-Hughes, Rachel O'Sullivan and Chloe Morgan every Tuesday for your definitive guide to the biggest stories in women's football.
    Today, after a shock defeat to an excellent Birmingham City, we wonder what Arsenal need to stop their lacklustre slide. There's also a look at potential movers in the transfer window and we ask what can be learned from a tumultuous few months for Coventry City, who look to have just avoided liquidation.

    Ramble Meets… Mark Hateley

    Ramble Meets… Mark Hateley

    If we could dream up our fantasy career, it’d probably be similar to that of today’s Ramble Meets… guest. Andy is joined by former Milan, Monaco, Rangers and England striker, Mark Hateley!
    From rubbing shoulders with footballing (and actual) royalty under Arsène Wenger at Monaco to winning the hearts of Inter fans at Serie A’s peak, Mark enjoyed an incredible career. He tells Andy about his continental travels, linking up with Ally McCoist at Rangers and passing on his wisdom to his son, who has his own globe-trotting career.

Europe in Australia?

Optus sports, not giving you the in-depth analysis you want? Or desiring a border look beyond the champions league at Europe’s top leagues and clubs with the players, managers, environments and fans? This is the podcast, top analysis from renowned individuals who break down stories for all fans to understand and enjoy, Dotten’s (sp?) sorry, comments are throughly refreshing, thanks fam, Sam.
