We’re joined by CBC’s Tom Harrington as we look back on the weekend’s Premier League action. Arsenal were wobbly at Wembley and got thrashed 1-0 as only Petr kept Spurs in check, it was the De Bruyne and Aguero show at the Etihad where City put five past a lackluster Leicester, and we’ll also chat about easy wins for Liverpool and Newcastle.
Yes ladies and gentleman like the plausible but threat of nuclear war, the Coshcast has returned. And what a week to do so!
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.

Apologies in advance for harkening back to the days of Lennon and Bale, but on the right and left respectively they would beat the full-back and drive crosses across the six-yard box multiple times a game. None of Crouch, Defoe or Pavlyuchenko were anything more than decent Premier League strikers, but they scored frequently because good chances were created for them.
I’ve mentioned before on the Coshcast that my Dad – or ‘Old Cosher’ – is a long-suffering Tottenham fan. From the glory of winning the league and cup double in the early 60s to the doldrums of the Taricco-infected 90s, he’s seen it all. After Spurs’ defeat to […]
