    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.

    De Bruyne to Saudi? And Man City vs The Premier League | Three Up Front

    De Bruyne to Saudi? And Man City vs The Premier League | Three Up Front

    The managerial merry-go-round is in full swing. Mourinho has sparked fanfare in Turkey by becoming Fenerbahce’s new manager. Vincent Kompany has officially been unveiled as Bayern Munich’s new manager, and Plymouth have announced Wayne Rooney as their new manager for next season. One manager staying put is Carlo Ancelotti as he welcomes Kylian Mbappe to his newly crowned Champions League squad.

    Kevin De Bruyne’s recent comments on Saudi Arabia have seemingly opened the door for a transfer, which has raised a few eyebrows as many believe him to be still performing at the highest level. While his current club, Man City, prepare to challenge the Premier League - taking their already-strained relationship to the next level.

    All this and more in this week’s episode of Three Up Front, with Joleon Lescott joining Simon and Graeme as a guest host, covering for Troy this week.

    Are Man City monopolising the Premier League? | Three Up Front

In this week's episode of Three Up Front, Simon, Graeme and Troy sit down to discuss Manchester City's monopolisation of the top flight whilst looking at the struggles smaller clubs face when coming up from the Championship.

    Who are the next generation of ELITE managers? | Three Up Front

    Who are the next generation of ELITE managers? | Three Up Front

    Since Sir Alex Ferguson left the Premier League, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp have been the two dominant forces in English football. As Jurgen says auf wiedersehen and speculation rises around Pep’s future, the lack of an obvious successor is apparent.
    In this week’s episode Simon, Graeme and Troy will be taking a look at which managers are next in line to take over from the best in the game. Whether that be up-and-coming talents like Mikel Arteta and Xabi Alonso, established veterans like Unai Emery and Thomas Tuchel or wildcards like Zinedine Zidane.
    They will also explore the characteristics that define an ‘elite’ manager, whilst discussing the reputation of British coaches and their lack of success at the top end of the Premier League table.

    Manchester United’s Malaise | Three Up Front

    Manchester United’s Malaise | Three Up Front

    In the second episode of 'Three Up Front', Simon Jordan, Troy Deeney and Graeme Souness discuss Manchester United's travails after they suffered their most humiliating defeat of the season at Crystal Palace. The trio look at where this once great club is and what the expectations should be for next season…
    With Sir Jim Ratcliffe becoming more of a prominent voice in football operations, Manchester United appear to be at a crossroads. Manager Erik Ten Hag is on the hot seat and the vast majority of the squad appear to be surplus to requirements, as well-remunerated stars such as Casemiro and Marcus Rashford continue to disappoint.
    The guys also discuss another team that has a somewhat murky future, as they react to the news that David Moyes is being replaced at the end of the season by Julen Lopetegui. Should West Ham fans ‘be careful what they wish for’ as they wave goodbye to the manager who put a trophy in the cabinet for the first time in 43 years? Simon, Graeme and Troy give their thoughts in this week's episode of Three Up Front brought to you by William Hill.

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!!!
