    Jermain Defoe | "If you play that badly for England you HAVE to accept the criticism!"

    Jermain Defoe | "If you play that badly for England you HAVE to accept the criticism!"

    On today’s episode, we are joined by one of the most clinical finishers to ever grace the Premier League.
    Tottenham favourite Jermain Defoe is one of the top 10 goal scorers in Premier League history and has represented England 57 times, featuring and scoring in major tournaments, before crowning his illustrious career by helping Rangers to bring the Scottish title back to Ibrox for the first time in a decade.
    Jermain sits down with Simon to talk about his England career and give his honest opinion on the current England squad, focusing on their performances at the Euros and the criticism they’ve faced. He also opens up about his special relationship with young Sunderland fan Bradley Lowery before discussing his future in the game.
    Despite his illustrious career and his experience as a coach in the Tottenham academy, Jermain has struggled to enter the world of management, experiencing resistance and rejection along the way. He joins the show to discuss his future prospects and the difficult journey black former players experience when swapping the  pitch for the dugout.
    Join Simon for this insightful conversation with Jermain Defoe.

    Theo Walcott | "Arteta locked us in the dressing room, it was like he was the manager”

    Theo Walcott | "Arteta locked us in the dressing room, it was like he was the manager”

    On today’s episode, we are joined by a former Arsenal favourite who is 1 of only 8 players to score over 100 goals for the club. Theo Walcott shot to fame at 16 when he signed for Arsenal in 2006, and his profile soared further when he was called up for England for the 2006 World Cup six months later. Upon his signing, he was widely tipped for greatness with comparisons to Thierry Henry. To go along with the goals, Theo won multiple FA Cups during his time in North London, whether that number is 2 or 3 is a point of debate in this very conversation.
    Theo joins Simon in Frankfurt, Germany to discuss his career, from his rapid rise in professional football to his time at Arsenal and England. He shares what it was like to play under Arsene Wenger in a transitional period in the club's history. Theo also provides insights on Mikel Arteta, highlighting the traits he saw in him as a player that have contributed to his success as a manager, while also touching on the current England squad and their chances at EURO 2024.

    "England’s midfield is in a Scholes, Gerrard, Lampard time warp” | Three Up Front in Frankfurt 🇩🇪

    "England’s midfield is in a Scholes, Gerrard, Lampard time warp” | Three Up Front in Frankfurt 🇩🇪

    On the final leg of Three Up Front’s trip around Germany, Simon, Graeme and Troy discuss the malaise around England’s performances, suggest playing Jude Bellingham deeper is the way for Gareth Southgate to improve his side and analyse the post season review that Manchester United undertook before confirming Erik Ten Hag would stay on as manager.
    There’s a story involving Troy, Graeme and a German donut man and Simon ponders the question as to how Sir Jim Ratcliffe can get his club to ‘be like Real Madrid’ after his latest comments about Manchester United.

    "Alexander-Arnold is not the answer to England’s midfield problems" | Three Up Front in Germany 🇩🇪

    "Alexander-Arnold is not the answer to England’s midfield problems" | Three Up Front in Germany 🇩🇪

    Football fever is sweeping across Germany as Euro 2024 gets into full swing. England kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 win over Serbia, thanks to a Jude Bellingham header. It’s a familiar story: a bright start, lost control, and a nervy finish. Nonetheless, Southgate has led the boys to a win. However, with key figures like Foden struggling to impose themselves on the game, has it left us with more questions than answers?
    The Tartan Army descended on Germany in their thousands, full of expectation ahead of their group opener against the host nation. But Scotland’s 5-1 thrashing in Munich has threatened to dampen their excitement and an early exit. What went so wrong for Steve Clarke’s men?
    Simon, Graeme, and Troy discuss all this and more from Germany in the latest episode of Three Up Front.

    Southgate’s defining moment. Will he finally release the handbrake at the Euros? | Three Up Front

    Southgate’s defining moment. Will he finally release the handbrake at the Euros? | Three Up Front

    For the first time in a long time England enter a major tournament as the favourites. It is also the tournament that is set to define the legacy of Gareth Southgate and his tenure with England.

    Under his guidance he has created the most harmonious England squad in decades and nurtured a fresh bond between fans and the players. He’s led them to the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final in the last three major tournaments - which previously had not been achieved for over 30 years. Now with arguably the best England squad since the "Golden Generation", can Southgate go one step further and lead England to the promised land?

    Simon and Graeme are joined by former England international Joleon Lescott to discuss England’s chances at Euro 2024, how Gareth can achieve success and what this would mean for his legacy. They also talk about the attacking talent at Southgate’s disposal as well as the issues in defence whilst looking at the teams who could potentially cause England a problem.

    All this and more in the latest episode of Three Up Front.

Fantastic

Fearless podcast

Quarentine Kid 2020 ,

Why change hosts?

The new format with three hosts ruined the podcast I fell in love with. All three trying to demand time to talk and Simon talks the least amount. Bummed. Why fix what was never broke? Now it’s broke.

Pete 67 ,

Well done Simon!

Someone who pushes, asks the questions no one else will ask and has no interest in the Woke brigade!!!
