What happens when a Liverpool supporter marries a Chelsea supporter? A LOT of football debate from Rebecca and Alex. New podcast every week ⚽️ #DICTL

    S2E31: HR Nightmare

    S2E31: HR Nightmare

    Rebecca and Alex are back with a European football focused show, after managing to overcome the hangover from hell following drunken karaoke after THAT defeat against Bayern Munich.

    Chelsea and Liverpool might be out of the Champions League but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of teams to talk about and a few to root for.

    We kick off by discussing what went wrong for Chelsea, the persistent issues that follow Frank Lampard around like a bad smell, and just how good this Bayern Munich team actually are. Is Lewandowski in the form of his life and can Hansi Flick's exciting, rejuvenated side go all the way?

    Juventus' Champions League dreams were dashed once again, this time by a remarkable Lyon side - who may be the surprise package of the tournament so far. The defeat also lost Maurizio Sarri his job and we analyse where it went wrong for Sarri at Juventus, why the board are so focused on quick fixes over long term planning, and how on Earth Andrea Pirlo has ended up becoming the new manager.

    After seeing off Napoli, Barcelona have set up the tie of the round against Bayern, with talk turning to Messi magic and if that’s going to be enough this time to see them through.

    And elsewhere, Man City turned in a great performance to see off a shaky Real Madrid, courtesy of a couple of Raphael Varane errors. We chat about English fans' perceptions of players who have a bad day at the office, just how much Real missed Sergio Ramos, and whether Man City can finally go the whole hog and win the Champions League this season.

    Plus, Willian actually leaves Chelsea, Juventus' microwave meal mentality, Cristiano Ronaldo's tantrum, Pirlo and donuts, 7 Up, The Wizard of Oz, sandwich skills, disposable crap, a big tease, the real Tiger King, and 'Kiddie Management'.

    S2E30: Danger High Voltage

    S2E30: Danger High Voltage

    The Premier League season is officially over and the FA Cup Final played out, so Rebecca and Alex are back for a bumper show to wrap up a crazy season (before the Champions League returns, anyway!).

    We start with that surprising result in the FA Cup Final, looking at Lampard's coaching, Chelsea's identity, how Arteta has improved Arsenal, Pulisic's brilliance, a shocking refereeing showing, hamstring injuries all over the place, and a brilliant Aubameyang performance.

    Liverpool finally lifted the Premier League trophy after beating Chelsea and we catch up on that wild game and the final day win vs Newcastle United; plus, the hilarious meltdowns from rival fans over LFC celebrating winning four trophies in 12 months and Jordan Henderson (deservedly) winning the FWA Footballer of the Year Award.

    We also recap the final day of the Premier League season, with Man Utd and Chelsea securing Champions League football, with Watford and Bournemouth consigned to relegation. Can Man Utd kick on next season? Do serious questions need to be asked of Leicester City's drop off? Will Eddie Howe join Burnley after leaving Bournemouth? And is Pepe Reina the greatest cheerleader of all time?

    Plus, revisiting our pre-season predictions, terrible trophy lifts, if anyone can stop Juventus in Serie A, Ian Wright's coaching, The Rise of Solskjaer, Keane and Micah's sweet & sour sauce, suing Hawkeye, burnt toast, spanked hineys, investing in Pampers, being happily tipsy, vegan cream, 3.30am phone calls, and, of course, Frank Lampard's 'Code'.

    S2E29: The OG Boys

    S2E29: The OG Boys

    Rebecca and Alex are back from a serious case of the man flu for a bumper podcast to catch up on all things Premier League, FA Cup and CAS decisions.

    We start with Lampard's Chelsea finally beating Solskjaer's Manchester United in the FA Cup, with proof that the back three is Chelsea's best option. Plus, chat about an improved midfield performance, does N'Golo Kante stay, more David de Gea errors, whether Dean Henderson should be Man Utd's No 1 goalkeeper next season, and a discussion about head injury protocol after Eric Bailly's injury.

    In the other FA Cup semi-final, Arsenal surprisingly bested Man City to end "one of their greatest ever weeks" on a sour note. We look at how Mikel Arteta has improved Arsenal and how far he could take them, if Man City are 'mentality minions', and how Man City's Champions League ban being overturned could permanently change football and FFP.

    Liverpool are officially on the beach and we chat about their drop off in form since the title win, whether it affects their legacy, how much points records matter, and look ahead to Wednesday's trophy lift.

    Plus, chat about the relegation battle, Watford's bizarre decision to sack Nigel Pearson, where Teemu Pukki goes next, Leeds United's promotion, and Real Madrid's La Liga title win - including what this means for Messi and Barcelona.

    Plus, Jose Mourinho haunts Brendan Rodgers again, how Pep Guardiola peaked in High School, Nick Pope as England's No 1, calamitous Gareth Bale, Woke Souness, press narratives, ranking goalkeepers on the beach, Abramovic's yacht, Big Macs with no sauce, 'tribrids', a Xabi Alonso-type creature, tequila at half time, golden roofs, Masterchef Billy, Viagra adverts, and a startling sandwich debate.

    S2E28: Mouse In The House

    S2E28: Mouse In The House

    After a ludicrous battle with a mouse in their flat, Rebecca and Alex are back to discuss an interesting week in the life of Liverpool and Chelsea fans.

    Liverpool got back to winning ways against Aston Villa in their first home game as champions - with a Curtis Jones goal for good measure. We dig into how Liverpool's midfield might look next season and whether those Thiago rumours hold any weight, before looking back at the loss to Man City at the Etihad. We consider Man City's mentality, whether this was truly them laying down a marker for next season, Kevin De Bruyne vs Jordan Henderson, and how uncomfortable the Raheem Sterling / Joe Gomez situation makes us.

    Chelsea have also had an up and down time; their loss to West Ham had all the hallmarks of the defence and midfield at their worst under Frank Lampard, but they looked far better against Watford. We analyse Barkley and Mount's form, where Jorginho has gone, left back issues, and whether Willian will be at this club forever.

    And there's plenty to chat about when it comes to the top four / top five race; with Man Utd's Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood inspired resurgence, Arsenal's success after switching to a back three, Leicester City's poor run finally coming to an end as Jamie Vardy got on the scoresheet again, Wolves' slip up, Sheffield Utd's up and down form, and who's really to blame for Tottenham's decline?

    Plus, Klopp vs Shreeves, more VAR handball nonsense, early morning scares, Twitter nonces, nacho stealing, Matic the soldier, the middle aisle of Aldi, bringing back Ashley Cole, cubed chicken, Mark from Love is Blind, mini men on CBeebies, swanning like a duck, and 'asterisk vs ostrich'.

    Bonus: Liverpool Are Champions

    Bonus: Liverpool Are Champions

    It's official: Liverpool are finally Premier League Champions and it was a Chelsea win which confirmed it. So you know Rebecca & Alex had to jump on the mics and give you a bonus podcast to chat about a wild night at Stamford Bridge.

    It's been a long, emotional wait for the Premier League trophy and who would have thought it would be games involving Crystal Palace and Chelsea which would finally bring an end to 30 years of hurt?

    We chat about Liverpool's impressive 4-0 win over Crystal Palace - including standout performances all over the pitch, with special mentions for Fabinho, Mo Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson.

    Then we dig into a wildly entertaining game between Chelsea and Manchester City, as Pulisic and Willian made the difference, with a little help from some bad defending and a moment of madness from Fernandinho.

    We do discuss how important a win this was for Chelsea in their battle for top four (everyone else seemed to forget that bit), before looking back at this incredible Liverpool season, including the most memorable and important moments along the way, big turning points in the (brief) title race, who's been Liverpool's best player, and lots of love for Jordan Henderson and Jurgen Norbert Klopp.

    Plus Facetiming family, celebration hangovers, lethal cocktails, 'Missionary Man', pizza noncing, Chelsea's greatest hits, the spider from James and the Giant Peach, Salah as Christian Grey, 68 vs 69, and Lampard's big assist.

    S2E27: Gammon Joints & Injuries

    S2E27: Gammon Joints & Injuries

    The Premier League was finally back in action this week and Rebecca and Alex are delighted to be able to discuss it again.

    A slightly anticlimactic Merseyside Derby 0-0 means that Liverpool have to wait slightly longer to win the title but there's plenty to chat about from Goodison Park, including LFC's car park entrance, Mike Dean's lockdown beard, Naby Keita and Alisson Becker's performances, and Everton's solid defensive work.

    Chelsea too made slightly hard work of their first match back, ultimately getting the win against Aston Villa, despite Kortney Hause's first half goal. We chat about Chelsea's old issues rearing their ugly head once again, Pulisic's impact, Azpilicueta's resurgence, and keeping Kepa.

    Tottenham vs Man Utd brought out one of the all-time great Roy Keane rants and we discuss those David de Gea issues, plus Paul Pogba's impact, that Spurs cat trying to muscle in on Noah's territory, and grumpy Mourinho returning with a bang.

    We also delve into various other talking points from across the Premier League, including Sheffield Utd's unlucky return, Michael Oliver's watch issues, Saint-Maximin's silky skills, whether Crystal Palace could sneak into a European place - and yes, plenty of chat about Arsenal's terrible week, from Neil Maupay's last minute winner to a vintage David Luiz performance.

    And in 'Around The World', we take a quick look at Napoli beating Juventus in the Coppa Italia Final, a La Liga title race between a flat Barcelona team and a resurgent Real Madrid side, and Celta Vigo's greatest bending of a rule ever.

    Plus, bruised knees, air raid sirens, baby celebrations, Dejan Lovren anxieties, French plaits, woolly nonces, George of the Jungle, skinny piggies, fixing fax machines, '5 bottles of wine penis', and why Arsenal are like Mean Girls.
