Coshcast S7E7: City give Watford 8 reasons to quit football

Call him Quique Sanches Florist because Watford are as easy to walk through as a bunch of flowers, Spurs lose away from home again, this time at the King Power, Phil Jones calls for Solskjaer to sacked and gets an Ed Woodward glower, Aubameyang saves Emery like the Prince saving Repunzal from the tower, and Liverpool beat Chelsea in second gear to the extent that they may not have even needed a post game shower.

Matchday 36: Is it over yet?

A La Liga advocate will always argue that the Spanish league houses the world’s best talents as well as cite Spanish clubs’ recent domination of European competitions. English fans’ best retort has predictably been the high competitive level between Premier League teams.
