The Totally Football Show: Monday edition – Who’s laughing now?
It’s over. The Premier League season is done, so we ask: was it Grealish’s last game at Villa? Was it Howe’s final match as Bournemouth boss? And which teams will be battling relegation next season? Manchester United and Chelsea qualify for the Champions League but it’s time to pay tribute to the individual achievements of Vardy, De Bruyne, Sterling and Potter. Plus Leighton Baines’ Morrissey knowledge, the Bellingham debate and how Middlesbrough used to sign players.
The Totally Football Show: European edition – So it was all Pogba
It’s Jimbo, James and Julien in the pod as football nears a conclusion in Italy, and French football gets started again. Juventus win their 9th title in a row, a Scudetto that’s received more criticism than celebration. Are we wrong to be underwhelmed by Maurizio Sarri, the coach who never had anything handed to him?
Who can dethrone the Old Lady next season? How will Pippo Inzaghi’s Benevento fare? And what does VAR have against Sassuolo? PSG are back and back winning domestic silverware, warming up for Atalanta in a cup final that sees a career-ending tackle on Kylian Mbappe. Not like that.
The Totally Football Show: Thursday edition – Multi-goal ding-dong tussle
Arsenal take on Chelsea this Saturday in the FA Cup final. With each side’s attacking strengths and defensive weaknesses, could we be in for a classic? It’s time to look back at the Premier League season just gone and do the end of season awards thing: were we too harsh on Newcastle and not harsh enough on Norwich? We discuss our favourite moments and characters from 2019/20. Silva, Djenepo, Morrison – all the key figures.
The Totally Scottish Football Show: The Big 2020/21 Scottish Premiership Preview Show
Andrew Slaven and JJ Bull hear from Dundee United’s new boss Micky Mellon, plus Kieran Canning brings the lowdown on Hearts, we get into FFS – that’s Fantasy Football Scotland – and preview the first round of fixtures.
The Offside Rule: The Offside Rule awards
It’s the last show of the season so it’s only right that Hayley McQueen, Kait Borsay, and Lynsey Hooper dish out their very own Offside Rule awards in typical Offside Rule fashion!
