    Premier League "Is This Anything?"

    Premier League "Is This Anything?"

    Mike and Michael look at the hottest narratives of the first week or two -- Everton, Palace, Arsenal, Leicester, Weston McKennie and more -- and ask, "is this anything?" How much can we have really learned from 180 minutes of football? In most cases, of...

    It Begins: All the Takes from the First Weekend

    It Begins: All the Takes from the First Weekend

    Leeds and Liverpool played a classic and (parts of) the popular narrative about it are more right than the shot stats might suggest. Arsenal were good and Chelsea were bad but does it mean anything? Oh yeah and Everton - Spurs.

    The Top Four(?) Race(?)

    The Top Four(?) Race(?)

    The Premier League season is almost upon us, and we've seen very different strategies so far from the teams we'd rate 3rd to 9th in the Premier League as they approach another run at the Champions League places. Who's doing it right, Everton or Spurs,...

    Champions League Final, Everton

    Goodman and Caley walk through a tactically fascinating but sadly short of actually great Champions League Final and appreciate how Bayern replaced Arjen Robben with Serge Gnabry and became the best team in the world again. Then they turn to Everton, a...

    Champions League Semifinals

    Champions League Semifinals

    A fascinating if not super competitive pair of semifinal matches are in the books. We look at everything PSG did right and, as is typical for us, spend a lot of time perserverating on what went for a Bayern team that won 3-0.

Top drawer as always

Mike and Mike always giving something to chew on in analysis. Love that Goodman was a guest on another pod and was asked about Son at the near post, actively thought about players "breaking" xG, and talked about it again.

Good stuff dudes.

Very Poor

Having read the magazine and listened to other shows on the network there was a certain degree of quality of work I was expecting from this show. I was sorely disappointed.
The hosts stutter and stumble over there words so often that by the time they get their words out you're not even sure what they're saying anymore. They seem more interested in trying to make their own points than converse with one another. The whole thing sounds like two very nervous men having their own independent conversations, stating views without supporting them while badly butchering the names of players, teams, cities and even countries. Who doesn't know how to say Qatar in 2017?
