I’ve got absolutely no idea what to tell you because I’m genuinely not sure what we’re going to talk about but presumably some international chat, Mohaned might try to get us to enjoy individual awards, we’ll attempt not to find something to have a go at Mourinho for, and I’m fairly confident we’ll preview some upcoming club football fixtures across England and Europe.
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.
The squad was littered with talent, both established or otherwise, with the Brazilian winger Malcolm and Valentin Vada being particularly fun to watch. Jeremy Menez continued to be an absolute nutcase occasionally capable of magic.
Everything has finally been decided. The Champions League Final saw a powerhouse club retain their title, the relegation playoffs are complete and it’s time to sit down with a Yann Tiersen record playing and go over the season of French football that was.
The decisiveness and rapidness with which Arsenal have tried to do their business this transfer window, whether internally or externally, suggests a shift in approach.
Squeaky bum time has arrived! It’s the time of the year where the choice of games on the television is overwhelming and everything seems to be happening at once. There are some incredible run-ins taking place across Europe.
After Kylian Mbappe’s increasingly impressive performances in Ligue 1 and the Champions League, the Cosh discuss the kid’s cieling, and examine comparisons to his peers and past legends…
It’s the Coshcast! Coming at you like a North Korean missile: some ups, some downs and probable fizzling out out at the end.
The Premier League, where in some kind of Henry Kissinger nightmare the red armies swept all before them with wins for Liverpool, Arsenal, Man Utd & Southampton, while in Wales, Paul Clement was in his element compared to Ranieri, who looked all despair-y.
I spent at least five minutes last night trying to remember a better Champions League debut. I recall Rooney getting a hat-trick for United on his first time in a red shirt when he was young, fit and pretty good but I don’t think anything comes close to Leicester City. Ranieri might be aiming for third place in the group but his players clearly have other ideas, racing to a 3-0 win over Club Brugge. It was that comfortable for them Mahrez even scored a penalty, which complimented his free kick rather nicely.
The idea is to take a closer look at French football, choosing not to scale the PSG monolith, but instead searching for stories in the tattered remains of the clubs that have crashed into it. I’m looking forward to this as there’s always been a hint of Francophilia in my veins; I liked Amelie, I own several stripy sweaters and my favourite skater is Lucas Puig.

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 […]
Last week, footage was released of Jose Mourinho having what he thought was a private conversation, during which he stated that Chelsea “lack a scorer. I have one [Eto’o] but he’s 32. Maybe 35, who knows?” He went on to imply interest in Radamel Falcao, disparaging Monaco in […]
