The Totally Football Show: Emergency Liverpool winning the league edition – And now it’s there…
Jimbo busts the glass marked ‘Emergency Podcast’ as Liverpool are confirmed as champions of England for the first time in 30 years. With the help of Duncan Alexander, Rory Smith and devoted Red Sasha Goryunov, we react to the end of one of the most famous sporting droughts. What will it mean for Liverpool in the future? Is it dampened by the circumstances of the pandemic?
The Athletic’s Michael Cox and Rafa Honigstein discuss where this team and manager stand in the pantheon of the greats. And Oliver Kay discusses what led to 30 years of hurt last time they were crowned champions. An era where Liverpool eventually got professional, after Robbie Williams. And some Tekken 2.
The Totally Football Show: Monday edition – Emotions escaping from somebody’s body
Jimbo is joined by Michael Cox, Matt Davies-Adams and Daniel Storey after the first full Premier League programme since the lockdown. Did it disappoint? Or are we just spoilt? No doubt that it was a dour derby on Merseyside but the weekend prompted plenty of questions. Did Mourinho get it wrong with his tactics? Are Arsenal done as a top 5 team? And have water breaks become a tactical turning point? The pendulum swings back in Real Madrid’s favour in La Liga as Alvaro Romeo explains.
The Totally Football Show: Thursday edition – 60 million pounds of nothing
Joining Jimbo in the pod are Duncan Alexander, Hugh Woozencroft and Benji Lanyado as Liverpool move to within touching distance of the title. Liverpool wipe the floor with Palace and could be champions by Thursday night. Man City’s game with Burnley was overshadowed by a White Lives Matter banner flown by plane. We discuss one of the most depressing moments of the season.
We also look ahead to the FA Cup quarter-finals and try to answer some questions posed by the Premier League midweek. Is Solskjaer laying the foundations for the next Manchester United manager? Do West Ham make good players bad? Are Arsenal mad?
The Totally Football League Show: Ice cold finishes, Black Mirror, and is Neil Warnock a guilty pleasure?
Matt Davies-Adams is joined by Sam Parkin and Adrian Clarke to review the first weekend of Championship action, laud Exeter and Northampton’s League Two play-off victories, and discuss the deepening crisis at Hull. Oh and Warnock’s back.
