    The Most Important Player for Each of the Premier League Top Six

    The Most Important Player for Each of the Premier League Top Six

    We love to talk about our favourite players, or have discussions about who we believe is better. But what about ranking the importance of certain players? What does importance mean, how may that differ on a team-to-team basis, and who (for each of the current PL top six) is the most vital player in their side, and why? 

    We discuss that, and more, on this episode of Top Bins Talk.

    Where Did The Traditional Wingers Go?

    Where Did The Traditional Wingers Go?

    The tactical developments we've seen in football over recent years has been tremendous, but one specific role that seems to be getting left behind is that of the traditional winger. Think Giggs on the left, Beckham on the right, chalk on their boots and width provided. Although the fulfillments for such a role may be more 'complex' in today's game, why don't we see it more often?

    Are we not maximising some wide players' qualities as they’ve been shoehorned onto their unnatural side becasue that’s the norm? What alternative solutions have teams made to replace the threat 'traditional wingers' provide? If a player has qualities more suited to playing on his strong side... then why not let him flourish in that role?

    We discuss these questions, and more, on this week's episode of The Drawing Board.

    Shortlisting Players for Newcastle's January Rebuild

    16 games into the Premier League season, Newcastle sit in 19th, 3 points adrift of safety and in need of results soon. Adding quality in January is a priority, but getting their recruitment right will be vital to their survival hopes. In Episode 3 of The Drawing Board, the Top Bins team create a shortlist of potential transfer targets, and explain why they'd each be smart signings for the club.

Easily my favorite soccer podcast

The guys at Top Bins are a lot of fun to listen to. A lot of weird deep cut soccer knowledge you can tell they really love the sport at every level and the banter is untouchable. A must listen for sure!
