Manchester United beat Spurs and it’s all good so far for Solskjaer with De Gea so sharp. At the London Stadium Nasri cut open Arsenal at one end and Fabianski kept them out at the other while wins for Liverpool and Chelsea kept the Reds ahead at the top, and the Blues in the Champions League spots.
It’s been the holidays! So no need to Pulisic day although Chelsea did anyway buying the American teenager for 58m pounds although that’s probably closer to 100m once you take tariffs into account, and such.
This week on the Coshcast, we look back at what was an incredible year of football. To help us do that, we asked fans to tell us how they felt 2018 went for their clubs.
This week on the Coshcast,
Liverpool were always going to be the better side against United but Shaqiri makes Xherdan of it as the Reds ran the field at Anfield, and Man City fans say a Hail Mary as Jesus’ mother returns their Brazilian striker to form.
City Luiz their first game of the season as the kop and Klopp go top, Arsenal lose more defenders than Tommy Robinson but Torreira gets on his bike, Spurs take Leicester to the Dele and slice them up, and Manchester United win a game of football.
City win at Wembley with a quick disassembly of Tottenham,
Martial and Zaha went down like they got shot, son,
At Turf Moore Barkley was looking sparkly under Sarri,
and at the Camp Nou Lopetegui is out of his camp, now.

This week on the Coshcast,
Shaqiri shakes Southampton, City give Cardiff a lamping and United can’t park the bus at home for fear of getting a clamping. Elsewhere, Arsenal and Spurs scrape wins, West Ham hold Chelsea at Yarm’s length, and in Italy, Juve’s wheels continue to spin.
Fraud or GOAT, Mumu of the Week and a special guest adds the icing to the cake.
Manchester United Lindelot to be desired as Spurs break old habits at Old Trafford, Wolves hold City in a case of headers and Bolys at Molineaux, Arsenal once again challenge their opponents to a game of “who can be a bigger shambles?” but win because it was West Ham.
We’ve got the rest of the Premier League action including Chelsea, Liverpool, and new title contenders Watford, a quick European run down which sounds like something you order off a menu in a red light district, and our usual favourite features. On we go.
This week on the Coshcast we run the rule over Chelsea and Arsenal as they muck around at the back of what was a very much un-parked bus, while but Manchester City Mendy defenses and send a shudder through Huddersfield.
Captain’s Pog’s in the captain’s log,
Sissoko plays but Spurs still please Poch.
Kante’s goal and Jorginho’s slot,
Liverpool rampant West Ham lost the plot,
Speaking of which Cech’s passing’s dross…
In a game in which both sides seemed to have a lack of motivating factors behind them, Chelsea were slight pre-match underdogs. The fans were the only ones in the stadium providing a typical cup final atmosphere after the morning’s Royal Wedding bonanza, as the football began slowly. Both […]
It’s the final day of the Premier League as City reach a century, Arsene departs eventually, Liverpool secure top four as it was meant to be, who would have predicted United winning sensibly, Spurs and Leicester lose their minds defensively, and Chelsea don’t care, ostensibly.
Arsenal finally pull their finger out as it’s Wenger out at the Emirates – we look back at the career of the Gandalf of football – the glory and the yawns, the glamour and the false dawns, and ask who is the right man for this brave new era, from Max Allegri to Patrick Vieira.
Elsewhere there’s FA Cup action to discuss as Mourinho mourinhos his team past Spurs who spurs themselves right in the spurs, and in things you never thought would happen, Giroud goes on a mazy dribble, and Napoli beat Juventus in Turin.
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.

This week on the Coshcast, we use the international break to talk about anything other than the internationals. Instead, it’s a manager special, with a special guest. Enjoy.
Pedro spoils Vardy’s party, Eriksen strangles the Swans and Mourinho strangles Luke Shaw as the FA Cup semi finals are decided, while in the Premier League we discuss Salah’s insane trajectory, especially in contrast to the awful joke that is Charlie Adam. If only someone would end his career, in the same way he’s tried to end countless others.
This week on the Coshcast, Reds left red faced by Rash as United beat Liverpool, Spurs lose their Kane but manage to walk past Bournemouth anyway, Arsenal, City and Chelsea get routine wins and we find out what happened when West Ham decided to put Joe Hart back in goal.
We’re joined by Sonja Missio in a Serie A special as tragedy strikes in Florence, Dybala strikes in Rome and Dzeko strikes in Naples in a dramatic weekend in Italy.
A herd of actual caribou would have given Manchester City a tougher test in the Carabou Cup final, in the Premier League, Lingard and United’s resilience outdo Willian’s brilliance, and it’s a walk in the park against West Ham for Liverpool, although obviously not alone, because you’ll never do that.
It’s the Coshcast! It’s been a weekend full of debate about decisions. Were they bad calls? Were they called well? All we know is that we’ve got Steven Caldwell on the pod and we couldn’t be happier about it.
This week on the Coshcast, much like on the altcoin exchanges it’s an absolute transfer frenzy.
Arsenal win but lose on social media, Lingard adds a Latin element to his dance squad and Chelsea Brighton their own mood after links with Andy Carroll. All this and we’re joined by the wonderful Laura Armstrong of the Toronto Star. Enjoy.
Yes ladies and gentleman like the plausible but threat of nuclear war, the Coshcast has returned. And what a week to do so!
He makes good runs, takes up good positions, but his teammates just don’t find him. Maybe he’s too short? They can’t see him? He must be terribly frustrated. Both by his size, and lack of service.
This week on the Coshcast, Manchester City slap Spurs to bits, Liverpool hit back at their critics, somewhere an old white man probably criticizes analytics, has Lukaku found his stride? Moyes has definitely hit his, and even old Roy is doing the business.
With Diego Costa’s imminent return to the Atletico side, it will be absolutely fascinating to see how the pair combine in a partnership that looks, on paper like it should work brilliantly. Costa the aggressive, sociopath bully ready to drive defenders bonkers, Griezmann the impish magician, darting around him into the spaces the opposition barely registered.
In the North London derby it was Mustafi and Alexis,
Chelsea make West Brom pay and it’ll be the last time Pulis collects his,
Pogba comes back and immediately connects with
Lukaku meanwhile De Bruyne is so good on his left, it’s almost as good as Salah who scored two and clicked ‘next’ while Moyes can’t save West Ham – who amongst us would have guessed?
It’s the Coshcast! We know you have a choice so thank you for flying with us. We start in the MLS playoffs as Toronto FC progress and Jozy Altidore is forced to take the Bulls by the horns.
Of all the unimportant things, football is the most important and so today amid all the actual important news, here’s the Coshcast’s for what we’ll generously call an hour’s mental relief.
It’s the Coshcast! You’d be a bit surprised if it wasn’t, I suppose.
It’s nearly Halloween and we start with Toronto FC who jack Atlanta’s win and hit astronomical heights by stealing the Galaxy’s points record.
This week on the Coshcast, we’re joined by a special guest.
It’s the Coshcast! Yes, like Liverpool’s defensive issues, we’re here every week. We start in MLS where Justin Morrow’s hat-trick came just in time to seal the Supporters’ Shield for Toronto FC. In the Premier League, City go to Stamford Bridge, put Chelsea neatly in De Bruyne paper bag and walk off home.
It’s the Coshcast and this week we’re chatting about what happened in New England as Toronto FC lost their second game in a row, and old England where Crystal Palace lost their sixth.
We’ve got all the latest covered from the Premier League where Rooney gets 100 hours of community service – that’s one for every yellow card he’s ever received, and today we’re also joined by special guest Joshua Kloke to go in depth on Toronto FC and review the latest from the Bundesliga.
In the Premier League City smash Liverpool as the curse of Oxlade Chamberlain continues and Sadio Mane creates a profile on Faceboot so that he can send his thoughts and prayers to Ederson. Elsewhere, Arsenal take a bite of the sour cherries, Mourinho is the only person in the world pining for Fellaini and for Swansea, we Renato ways to say that Sanches had a bad game.
City have so many questions to answer, Liverpool just look like they know a bit more about themselves. So in many ways, this match should give us an indication of both teams’ ability to challenge for the league and make their mark on the European stage.
It can surprise nobody that Alex Oxlade Chamberlain is choosing to leave Arsenal. His playing time has been hampered by injuries, his development stalled by mismanagement, his expectations messed with and his value to the club taken for granted until it was too late.
Arsenal get slammed by Liverpool’s press and then in the press and can’t even release a press statement as they agree sell their media and communications department to Chelsea for 35m.
Laura Armstrong joins us on this week’s Coshcast. Chelsea go all-out trench warfare against Tottenham as Marcos Alonso proves his worth and Lloris struggles in just the latest example of the French setting up a wall and the opposition quickly finding a way around it.
The recent talk about the restructuring of the summer transfer window period in the Premier League is refreshing. Managers seem to want to know their squads before the season starts, and players would also like to be settled down at their clubs.
As it stands, the transfer window still runs until the end of August, and clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Man United, and Tottenham are running out of time to finalize their squads for the season which has already started.
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.
Vieira turns to Pirlo and Giovinco becomes peerless as Toronto FC smash four past New York City FC and we team up with Daniel Rouse to preview the English Premier League season.
The problem has always been the AFCON’s influence on the European leagues. Up until the tournaments last edition, it was always held in the winter months which meant that eligible African players would have to miss anywhere between 3 to 6 fixtures for their European club teams in the crucial run in period. The Premier League has always felt this effect in full force.
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.
Where will Conte go now for his striking options if he doesn’t wish to reconcile with Diego Costa?
It’s been a busy week on the site. Here’s everything you need to read or listen to in one place. Enjoy:
An amazing campaign but one that only really felt so good in the context of the one that preceded it.
The FA Cup Final, Manchester United’s silly “treble”, the upcoming Champions League Final, Totti’s emotional farewell…it’s been a hectic week in the world of football. Look back over it with us in the following articles and podcast:
