    Our Graeme...

    Hello and welcome back to The Offside Rule where for the first time this season we have our usual lineup of Kait, Lynsey and Hayley all in attendance. We kick off today's episode with a discussion around the Premier League's biggest villains in light of a fiery game at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, before analysing what has caught us by surprise the most from the opening two Premier League fixtures. As if that wasn't enough we wrap up the show with a quiz designed by producer Dougie to commemorate the our beloved Prem's 30th birthday. Enjoy!

    He doesn't live with his Mum, and he's got a mobile phone

    This week Lynsey and Hayley are joined by BBC commentator Vicki Sparks to bring you the latest takes on the world of football. Hear about which stars shone during the opening weekend of Premier League fixtures, which manager could already be under pressure and who we predict will be the breakout star of 2022/23. If that wasn't enough we also put forward our "transfer switches," moves that would have made more sense for players this summer. Enjoy!

    The Offside Rule is back for the brand new season! With Kait and Hayley away, Lynsey is in the hot seat and is joined by broadcaster Ali Bender and The Athletic's Sarah Shephard to breakdown the aftermath of England's historic Euros win, asking what can the men's game learn from the women's? We also analyse which Premier League clubs still have plenty of work to do in the remaining month of the transfer window and make some outlandish predictions for the upcoming campaign. Enjoy!

Delightful and Insightful

As someone new to watching the Premier League, I started after getting into the WSL actually, I found it to be a little overwhelming trying to know where to begin. Then I found this podcast and it made it so much easier! The knowledge about the league, players, and clubs, mixed with some great humour has really helped in my enjoyment of watching! It’s also really lovely listening to three women chatting all things football as a female viewer, really helps in feeling welcomed into the football community.
