Coshcast: EPL review with TSN’s Kristian Jack

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.

The Second Half: Things to Expect in the EPL

Boxing day has arrived and the season’s second half has begun. The title race may be all but over, but the domestic cups are still to play for and the Europa and Champions League knockout stages have yet to commence. Just a few weekends ago we were delighted at the onset of another footballing season. Now, we find ourselves wondering how things will transpire as we prepare for another World Cup.

Transfers: Chelsea and Liverpool running out of time

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.

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.

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.

MUFC 2016/17 Season Review: Don’t dare call it a Treble…

While I admire the Mourinho mentality that says, “if we’re in a competition, we’ll try to win it”, I don’t think any United fan will look back on 2016/17 as another treble season. With all apologies to Liverpool and what some dubbed the ‘Mickey Mouse treble’, this campaign is just barely a double. I mean, the Community Shield isn’t a major trophy, is it?

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.

Football managers say the craziest things

This season on the Coshcast we’ve highlighted a few quotes from managers in the English Premier League. Sure, most of them have come from David Moyes but give us a break, the man is a legend! This week has been a hall of fame week for unbelievable statements from the bosses of the league. We thought you’d enjoy a quick round up. Share your thoughts in the comments as usual.

Red Monday, Red Icardi.

Liverpool United shares similarities with abstinence in that both are anti-climax. Mourinho spoils Liverpool’s party again but only by a De Gea’s breadth while Chelsea do to Leicester what everyone did to them last season, Bob Bradley wears a pullover but can’t pull one over on old Arsene, and Manchester City ask if they can trade their penalties in for corners as they continue to find themselves useless from 12 yards.

Plenty of sugar without Kane

Louis van Gaal wanted “virtual reality” training for United last season. Rooney was one step ahead for once, he has been living in a virtual reality for about 18 months, one where he is still a good player. Still, it was Rooney who was once again summoned from the bench to miskick the ball to a United player and claim it as an assist. Jose has it sussed now, give him ten minutes here and there and the damage should be minimal.

The Shambles That Is Sunderland AFC

Sunderland however, is a disgracefully run football club. Football fans everywhere should be insulted by the way this football club performs season in, season out. It’d be better if they were relegated and spent a few years in the wilderness in order to reassess how they operate. Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. If that’s the case then Sunderland are the custodians of the asylum.

TFTTF: Mourinho’s career begins to crumble

It is saying something when United fans are starting to reminisce misty eyed over the glory day of David Moyes. I mean, even Van Gaal didn’t manage to spend this much money and lose three games in a week. Not that it is all Mourinho’s fault, of course. The referees are to blame, as is Watford’s “luck” in making Rooney, Fellaini and Zlatan look somewhat average.
