Massimo Cellino – Football Banter Podcast

April 2nd, 2014 by

How could we talk about anything else? Massimo Cellino did us a massive favour this week by being a complete legend. We let Liverpool have a bit of air time for a change and talk about the relegation battle…

Moyes Sacked by Man Utd

March 28th, 2014 by

If you’re a Manchester United fan then I can only apologise, the title of this post is not true. Unbelievably, David Moyes has not been sacked by Manchester United – despite his best attempts at single handedly destroying everything that Alex Ferguson built over the past 27 years. (more…)

Wenger’s Last Chance – Football Banter Podcast

After Roy Hodgson sent us all to sleep with England’s drab performance against Denmark we reflect on a World Cup with Roy in charge, debate whether Adam Lallana really is that good. We also cover Cheryl Cole’s arse (not literally), Arsene Wenger’s last chance to win a trophy and get annoyed with other countries for stealing players.

Sitting down to watch Manchester City v Barcelona on Tuesday evening I was expecting a decent game of football. Sure I expected Barcelona to win but I thought City might make a game of it, I was wrong – and despite the somewhat distorted view of the game by City’s very own hot air balloon Vincent Kompany, City were never in it.

No Contest

I simply cannot understand how Barcelona manage to strangle the contest out of almost every game they play in. I’ve never really enjoyed watching them play, it’s not that they don’t play well – it’s that all their games are so heavily one sided. They dominate possession to such an extent that it’s hard to actually call their matches a game. It’s like cat playing with a mouse, I struggle to see the entertainment value. City too could ordinarily be accused of dominating games, but when they do it, it’s very different – there are shots, there are goals – the exciting things that Barcelona seem to forget. (more…)
