    Total Football Analysis EPL Podcast #36

    Matchday 32 was a ho hum Premier League week while the Champions League semi finals and FA Cup weekend were alright.  Not so fast, on Sunday the big, big news emerged of the European Super League, which swallowed the Spur’s sacking of Mourinho.  We found one person crazy enough to advocate for the ESL, or at least to make a “fair and balanced” conversation.  We unpack the ESL and discuss why Mou was sent packing.
