    Phil Foden a shoo-in for POTY?

    Phil Foden a shoo-in for POTY?

    'It's All Kicking Off!' returns for its Weekend Preview edition.
    We start off by discussing Bukayo Saka's alleged dive versus Bayern Munich, questioning whether Arsenal's 'Starboy' will learn from his error and wondering whether fans would accept players from their side bending the rules if it meant they won the game.
    The Gunners welcome Unai Emery's Aston Villa to the Emirates this Sunday, with the Spaniard making his Premier League return to the stadium he once called home. The lads question whether Emery is still the victim of his short stint in north London and discuss the challenges managers face when shaking off negative perceptions.
    Ian and Chris have their say on the Premier League's player of the season, with Manchester City players inevitably in the conversation. Ian previously backed Kyle Walker for this particular accolade - does our host stand firm or has he reversed on this? City host Luton this weekend with Rob Edwards' side running out of games to maintain their Premier League status...
    AND the pair question whether the quality at the bottom of the Premier League is strong enough, and if 40 points is still enough to keep teams in the league.

    Man United dent Liverpool's title challenge

    Man United dent Liverpool's title challenge

    Ian and Chris return to review the weekend of Premier League football and beyond… 
    First up is that epic Manchester United vs Liverpool draw. With no wins in 3 games against the Red Devils, we ask if Liverpool have a mental block against their struggling rivals. 
    With Liverpool dropping points, Arsenal move to the top of the league on goal difference, with the Gunners fresh off a 3-0 away win in Brighton. Chris picks out the Gabriel and Saliba centreback partnership for praise - could they go down in history as all-time greats?
    The race for top 4 saw Spurs surge ahead of Aston Villa, but why does Ange Postecoglu maintain that he doesn’t care about his side's place in the table? Chris and Ian debate whether it's the right approach.
    And finally, Sunday saw an Old Firm derby for the ages, finishing 3-3 with late goals from both sides. Off the pitch though, Ian bemoans the banning of away fans for recent matchups between the Scottish heavyweights.

    'He's got the eye of the tiger!' Is a farewell title Klopp's destiny?

    'He's got the eye of the tiger!' Is a farewell title Klopp's destiny?

    'It's All Kicking Off!' returns for its Weekend Preview show...
    With Ian Ladyman (once again) on holiday, Merseyside expert, Dominic King, steps into the hot-seat alongside Chris Sutton. First up this week it's Jurgen Klopp's final trip to Old Trafford as Liverpool boss. Dom explains the mindset of the man heading into yet another nail-biting run-in, and recounts a story which includes the Liverpool boss, sharing a pint with Steven Gerrard during a dog walk just days before a crunch fixture.
    Can Manchester United repeat the feat which saw them knock their rivals out of the FA Cup? Well, Dom and Chris don't seem to think so...
    Switching over to the bottom half of the table now and we look ahead to Everton vs Burnley. Do Everton have enough in the locker to get over the line or will Burnley complete an almighty great escape with the games rapidly running out?
    Next up and we preview two derbies OUTSIDE of the Premier League...
    Norwich v Ipswich is first on the agenda, as Dom and Chris discuss the significance of this particular Old Farm Derby, with both East Anglia clubs pushing for promotion. Can Norwich dampen their rivals' title-dreams, or will the Tractor Boys springboard their push for the Premier League in their enemy's back garden?
    FINALLY, we discuss the Old Firm. Rangers have shown real signs of improvement under Philipe Clement, but Celtic won't give up yet another title without a fight...

    Have Arsenal FINALLY grown up?

    Have Arsenal FINALLY grown up?

    Welcome back to 'It's All Kicking Off!' - your one-stop shop for all things football! (Apologies that this instalment is late, IAKO HQ ran into some technical difficulties this bank holiday Monday)
    In the latest episode we start by discussing the borefest which was Manchester City vs Arsenal as Ian suggests that the Gunners have finally grown up, almost a year to the day since they showed their inexperience in a 4-1 Etihad drubbing. The pair analyse Roy Keane's brutal Erling Haaland analysis, describing the record-shattering striker as 'League 2' quality with regards to his all-round play and they question why Pep Guardiola gave Jack Grealish some animated on-the-field coaching after the final whistle.
    Moving on to their title-rivals and Chris suggests that it's Liverpool who will be most delighted by the outcome, while Ian reckons they still have work to do with several tricky away games still on the horizon. What do you reckon? With the three giants still in the equation... who blinks first?
    The pair question if Roberto De Zerbi has one eye on the exit AMEX exit door, following a series of open-ended answers to questions regarding his future... with Chris reckoning that Brighton fans may well feel aggrieved by the way he handled the situation.
    We question whether there is yet life in the relegation battle with Brighton sitting 4 points from safety and with some favourable fixtures still to play.
    AND we find out the best EVER April Fool's gags in football?

    Can Arsenal steal a win at City?

    Can Arsenal steal a win at City?

    On our weekend preview show, a title clash takes top billing, with Arsenal heading to Man City. Will the potential injuries to Walker, Ederson, Stones and Akanji move the needle in Arsenal's favour?
    Elsewhere Nottingham Forest are newly in the relegation zone after their points deduction. They face Crystal Palace hoping to immediately break clear of it. But off the pitch, Forest assistant manager Steven Reid has been fined for comments made to the referee after their controversial last-minute loss to Liverpool. Ian and Chris take a look at those comments and ask how Reid has got away with them so lightly.
    Chelsea welcome Burnley to Stamford Bridge, a game with several subplots. Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku impressed in internationals midweek, highlighting the centre forward gap at Chelsea. Meanwhile injury to Sam Johnstone has opened up a goalkeeper spot in the England camp - but should Burnley man James Trafford be the one to take it?
    And finally, Liverpool welcome Brighton to Anfield, in what could be an audition for Roberto De Zerbi, with a vacant manager position at Liverpool this summer...

    Was England's loss to Brazil actually a good thing?

    Was England's loss to Brazil actually a good thing?

    'It's All Kicking Off!' returns for the Monday instalment of your favourite football podcast.
    This week, Ian and Chris start with a post-mortem of England's 1-0 loss to Brazil. Ian takes the view that it actually might be a good thing - Chris disagrees.
    Next it's a review of Wales and Scotland's international fortunes. Wales are only one playoff win away from Euro 2024 qualification, but should they even be in with a shout after both a terrible qualifying and Nations League campaign? Scotland meanwhile have lost 6 on the bounce.
    And finally, Jay Bothroyd joins the podcast after he revealed this week that he hid his epilepsy for his entire playing career. We hear about how it impacted his career and why he's now decided to speak out.
