    Shambling relic

    Shambling relic

    Jimbo, James Horncastle, Raphael Honigstein, Julien Laurens and Alvaro Romeo digest a huge weekend across the continent, both on the pitch and in the post-match interviews.

    Bayern overcome Dortmund but there’s controversy as Jude Bellingham highlights referee Felix Zwayer’s past dealings. Elsewhere in the Bundesliga, Leverkusen score 7, Freiburg score 6 in the first half and Jesse Marsch is sacked by Leipzig.

    Also out of work is Claude Puel after Rennes run riot at Saint-Etienne. And PSG rescue a point but continue to look unimpressive.

    Speaking of unimpressive, Roma are taken apart by Inter with Jose Mourinho taking his frustration out on journalists.

    And it’s a nervous week for Spanish football fans with Barcelona, Villarreal and Sevilla all faced with potential elimination from the Champions League.

    That incompetence very much can continue

    That incompetence very much can continue

    Jimbo is joined by Natalie Gedra, Daniel Storey and Dom Fifield after another intriguing Premier League weekend.

    West Ham knock Chelsea off the top of the table, thanks to the aggression of Antonio and the bravery of Moyes. We discuss why Chelsea are missing Kante and missing out on the full Lukaku experience.

    Villa beat Leicester as we see how Steven Gerrard has transformed the Villa midfield. Plus we all learn that incredibly vague rule about goalkeepers having the ball under control.

    There’s some love for Divock Origi and why Ralf Rangnick would rather have a Fred than a Fernandes.

    Flo Lloyd-Hughes is back to dissect a dominant cup final display from Chelsea at Wembley.

    Plus Orta’s antics and Bellingham and Mourinho talking themselves into trouble.

    And that pint is a pint of beer

    And that pint is a pint of beer

    It’s Thursday, which means it’s Jimbo alongside Duncan Alexander, Sasha Goryunov and Adrian Clarke to peruse the non-stop Premier League action.

    Liverpool thrash Everton at Goodison Park with another brace for Mo Salah, a player who is reaching the levels of Thierry Henry in his pomp.

    The relegation six-pointer between Newcastle and Norwich ends all square with the Magpies still winless ahead of a visit from Burnley. George Caulkin tells us why he doesn’t like what he smells when it comes to this season.

    This weekend, we’ve got Gerrard v Rodgers and statistically the most one-sided game in Premier League history.

    Flo Lloyd-Hughes talks to us about a huge week in the women’s game with a dream FA Cup final, Ellen White becoming her country’s top scorer and the small matter of that game with Latvia.

    Plus we revisit the day when Russia and Qatar were awarded World Cups. And Cameron, Beckham and Prince William were left with egg on their faces.

    RUNNING ORDER: 
     
    • PART 1a: Everton 1-4 Liverpool (04m 30s)
    • PART 1b: Chelsea and City win as well (13m 00s) 
    • PART 2: Winless Newcastle and the battle at the bottom with George Caulkin (22m 00s)

    • PART 4: The odds with Paddy Power (50m 00s)
    • PART 5: England 20-0 Latvia & Arsenal v Chelsea preview with Flo Lloyd-Hughes (52m 00s)

    Gesture of the umbrella

    Jimbo assembles the Euro crew of Raphael Honigstein, James Horncastle, Julien Laurens and Alvaro Romeo after some statement performances across the continent this weekend.

    Napoli dismantle Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio to stay top of Serie A but it’s been a bad week for Juventus. They’re under investigation off the pitch and are Max Allegri’s methods on the pitch behind the times?

    Erling Haaland is back with a bang, just in time for Der Klassiker next weekend. Can Dortmund finally get one over Bayern?

    Sergio Ramos finally makes his debut for PSG but it looks like they’ve lost Neymar till the New Year through injury.

    Real Madrid extend their lead at the top of La Liga with Vinicius in the form of his life and Benzema becoming a wiser player with age.

    Plus Belenenses Benfica and the Ballon D’Or goes to Messi.

    Disturbed by the lights

    Disturbed by the lights

    Jimbo, Daniel Storey, Lynsey Hooper and Matt Davies-Adams are all over the Premier League weekend and midweek action.

    Carrick’s United go ultra-defensive to draw at Stamford Bridge. Rangnick’s United on Thursday are up against an Arsenal side that are proving themselves better than the rest but worse than the best.

    There’s scarcely believable murmurings of discontent at Brighton and Wolves. But more believable disgruntlement at Goodison as Everton prepare for Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby. Matt Jones from the Blue Room tells us why Rafa is close to the least of Everton’s problems.

    And we speak to Ken Saxton, the Spurs fan from Dallas who travelled all the way to Burnley to see the game snowed off and is now friends with Harry Kane.


    RUNNING ORDER: 
     
    • PART 1a: Chelsea 1-1 Man Utd (03m 00s)
    • PART 1b: Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle (14m 00s)

    If football was mathematical

    If football was mathematical

    Jimbo welcomes Duncan Alexander, Tom Williams and Nooruddean Choudry in for a jam-packed Totally Football Show.

    As exclusively revealed by The Athletic, Ralf Rangnick looks set to take over as interim manager at Manchester United. Raphael Honigstein tells us to expect pace and precision in United’s play.

    We look back at the midweek Champions League action, purring over Man City and the way Reece James and Thiago hit footballs. And we look back at the midweek karaoke action with Declan Rice.

    Plus Dyche going full Ossie Ardiles, the celebration police and the small matter of AFCON. And burgers.

Great stuff

Love the pod and live for hearing Jimbo say Mesut Özil (this coming from a Spurs supporter). I would appreciate you spending a little more than 1 minute and 39 seconds on the next Spurs match (yes i timed it)
