Koscielny’s injured jaw and Alexis scores of course, Higuain debuts to applause and Spurs have cause for pause as Nkoudou gives Poch buyer’s remorse.
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.
Arsenal – Liverpool is anything but run of the Milner as Arsenal finally breach Van Dijk to rescue a draw. Elsewhere, is the Premier League too easy for Manchester City? Does Morata need to get more gritty?
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.
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.
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.
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.
This week on the Coshcast, much like on the altcoin exchanges it’s an absolute transfer frenzy.
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?
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.
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.
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.
AC Milan have quietly spent a lot of money in this transfer window. The new owners have lived up to their promise to invest in the squad. A resurgent AC Milan is good for their fans but ultimately good for Italian football. How good are these signings really? Are Milan actually primed for a return to the big time? We ask the important questions and I’m sure you’ll find some surprising answers here. Enjoy and have your say in the comments section and on social media.
The Coshcast joins you after a weekend that saw loads of exciting things happen that didn’t mean very much at all.

Juventus is a well-run business, and aside from a few exceptions, a team which is being run as a business in a league in which most owners are still running theirs as fruit stands.
You couldn’t write Ogenyi Onazi – the most disappointing player for you this season – scoring the most important goal in many seasons. You couldn’t write Miroslav Klose putting gloss on the scoreline and reminding everyone of the secret behind much of our success.
On May 24th, 2014, the lads and I watched Real Madrid win La Decima at Real Sports Bar in Toronto. The historic nature of that victory overcame us all as if we were Madridistas ourselves. As we all know, Atletico Madrid were one minute away from pulling off […]
The final day is here! The title race may be over, the top four may be decided, but there is still a small battle for the final Europa League spot mainly between Tottenham and Southampton. Our final relegation spot hasn’t been fully decided yet either, as Hull City […]
A.S. Roma started this season like a house on fire. Their new signings had bedded in well, Rudi Garcia was the name on everybody’s lips, and it looked as though the Giallorossi would genuinely push Juventus all the way in the race for lo Scudetto. Since around the […]
The TV scheduling gods have royally screwed up this weekend. Chelsea against Manchester United is clearly the biggest fixture, but it’s being played at the same time as Arsenal’s FA Cup semi-final against Reading. What kind of nonsense is that? Never mind. There are also a few other […]
So, after investigation, we learn that the BBC will not be renewing Jeremy Clarkson’s contract. The rest of this season of Top Gear will play out, and then the BBC and the show’s team will figure how – or whether – to continue their work. There are parallels […]
After a few seasons bouncing around the Championship on more loans than the Greek economy, failing at each club and facing criminal charges on multiple occasions, he is being rewarded with a four year deal at one of Italy’s most prestigious clubs. How has this happened?
Roma have gone on a majestic, lip licking, hand rubbing, head scratching run of 10 consecutive wins at the beginning of the 2013/2014 Serie A season. Even the most die hard of Roma fans, at their highest act of recklessness, would not have bet on them going on […]
