It’s not your shield, it’s not our shield, it’s the Community Shield and we don’t care about it either but we’ll touch on it anyway.

Coshcast: Collapse at the PathEtihad

This week on the Coshcast,
City fail to buy a centreback better than Otamendi at half time allowing United to storm back and beat them at the Etihad, somehow a Merseyside derby featuring Dominic Solanke and a team managed by Sam Allardyce doesn’t produce any goals, Spurs and Arsenal scrape past Mark Hughes past and present, and Chelsea continue to defy all logic by not using Ross Barkley to fire them into the Champions League spots.

How Arsenal miss Santi

For a good few years, Santi Cazorla and his diminutive stature papered over the giant cracks in Arsenal’s midfield. His magical ball retention and ambidextrous ability lulled fans into forgetting about the lack of cover and depth. Now the memories haunt them more than ever.

What TFC can expect from Ager Aketxe

Aketxe is an exciting player whose impressive rise through the Athletic Club ranks certainly had fans clamouring for his mark to be made on the first team. However, the slight playmaker has had a turbulent time over the past two years, being sent out on loan to Cadiz in the second division before succumbing to a serious knee injury over the summer limited his playing time this season.

Assessing Tottenham’s Transfer Window

In a summer that saw some of the most insane transfer business ever witnessed, it’s heartening to see Spurs staying true to their principles, trying to do things ‘the right way.’ Whether that will be enough to finally see this talented team make the final step and win major honours remains to be seen.

Coshcast: Chelsea see red, Giroud uses head, Lukaku leaves West Ham for dead

The Premier League unzips and swings itself around – we admire Giroud as Arsenal pull themselves out of a quagmire that started with McGuire and at Vicarage Road it was Firmino’s wiry frame that caused Marco Silva to perspire. Special guest Feroze Ali talks to us about Chelsea who possibly had too much fire and conspired to lose at home to Burnley, Crystal Palace wonder whether they made the right hire and Manchester United set West Ham atop a pire and burn them to ground.

Coshcast: Gold Cup, Transfers & Neymar

This week on the Coshcast we look back at Canada’s run in the Gold Cup as they pass the Hondurance test but ultimately suffer from Larin’s itis, round up any latest transfer madness by which I mean primarily make fun of West Ham, and course where would we be without Mumu of the Week? We’d be up a tree without a Mumu, of course.

Canadian Soccer in the US System

With the news of the Canadian Premier League sparking Canadian interest in soccer from Victoria to St. John’s, it is worth taking a look at the Canadian clubs under US governing bodies and their histories, be it top division sides like Toronto FC and Vancouver Whitecaps or lesser known PDL sides such as Forest City London or Calgary Foothills FC.

Manchester United: The Macheda Moment

It was a frantic finish to the 08/09 season and I was approaching the end of my first year of university. Back home for the weekend, with finals around the corner, the United game was on. It was (and still is) a standard ritual to watch the United game while planning the rest of the day around it, and so everything else was naturally cast aside.

Coshcast: Tottenham Spur Chelsea On & Barcelona fall to Malaga

Coshcast is here as the end of the season draws near.
This week we discuss which is trippier, Spurs’ right back or Fellaini captaining United. There’s Everton – Leicester in a great advert for how rubbish the Premier League can be, Liverpool try weird tactic of using best players to win game, Chelsea bop Bournemouth and we all get a little bit little bit David Attenborough as the world is given a glimpse of the lesser-spotted Delph.
