The Canadian Premier League begins as Pacific FC record the first win,
Van Dijk and Sterling get personal awards, United and Chelsea play out a draw,
North London crumbles, Liverpool win, and City retain first place by about an inch.
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.
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.
This week on the Coshcast, Reds left red faced by Rash as United beat Liverpool, Spurs lose their Kane but manage to walk past Bournemouth anyway, Arsenal, City and Chelsea get routine wins and we find out what happened when West Ham decided to put Joe Hart back in goal.
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.
This week on the Coshcast, much like on the altcoin exchanges it’s an absolute transfer frenzy.
Arsenal win but lose on social media, Lingard adds a Latin element to his dance squad and Chelsea Brighton their own mood after links with Andy Carroll. All this and we’re joined by the wonderful Laura Armstrong of the Toronto Star. Enjoy.
Yes ladies and gentleman like the plausible but threat of nuclear war, the Coshcast has returned. And what a week to do so!
This week on the Coshcast, Manchester City slap Spurs to bits, Liverpool hit back at their critics, somewhere an old white man probably criticizes analytics, has Lukaku found his stride? Moyes has definitely hit his, and even old Roy is doing the business.
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?
It’s the Coshcast! We know you have a choice so thank you for flying with us. We start in the MLS playoffs as Toronto FC progress and Jozy Altidore is forced to take the Bulls by the horns.
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.
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.
For us here at Under The Cosh, this is the biggest game of the season. It’s the Red Devils vs. the Gunners and our friendships will be temporarily strained. Last season Arsenal gave Man United a pasting at the Emirate with a 3-0 victory and the Gooner contingent were full of banter. The return fixture saw 18 year old Marcus Rashford score a brace on his Premier League debut to seal a 3-2 victory for United bringing them redemption.

There’s no sugar coating it, this season was atrocious. As a Valencia CF fan you get used to a rollercoaster ride every season, but I have experienced few with quite so many drops as this one. The only comparison I can make would be the 2007/2008 season – a season where Valencia was almost relegated, our most iconic players were ousted from the club and our own captain even sued the club’s ownership…
The trophy room, which contained every trophy won since the 1900s and also had some interesting artifacts like Hristo Stoichkov’s boots and a signed Maradona shirt. It was interesting to watch the markings on the Copa del Ray change over the years in correlation with Spanish politics. During Franco’s reign for example, it was called the Copa del Generalisimo.
Like most fans of the English Premier League, we’ve been very impressed by Gary Neville’s analysis for Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football (MNF). It seems that his obvious tactical nous and his friendship and business relationship with Peter Lim – owner of Valencia and part-owner of Salford FC […]
In the mid-90s had you told Romario that his primary function was to serve as a snow-blower for Luis Figo, he’d have probably knocked you out or died laughing. These days, the game’s poachers or “fox-in-the-box” types like Chicharito, Defoe and Soldado are staggering around in a daze, wondering what happened to the football they knew, and whether they’ll get a flick on from a target man ever again.
Louis van Gaal’s first season at Manchester United has been fun to watch from a neutral point of view. Big signings failing to make an impact, players who were once thrown on the scrap-heap coming back to prove their worth, a philosophical battle between 3-5-2 and 4-3-3…we’ve seen it all. Here to give us a United perspective on the whole season, is Ken Frampton. Follow Ken on Twitter at @kframpton
The 34th match day of the season is upon us and the general consensus is that the title will be won by Chelsea (surprise, surprise), while the battle for spots 2, 3, and 4 look nearly settled other than which particular order those teams will finish in. Meanwhile, […]

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 […]
At first, David Moyes as manager of Real Sociedad sits a little uncomfortably. It’s like when your first girlfriend asks you to stop wearing baggy clothes and buys you a tight-fitting t-shirt. You’re a little bemused, you can’t immediately see what the benefit is, but over time you […]
It used to be that to the outsider, La Liga was just about the Big Two; Then last season, the most romantic league in the world smacked its naysayers in the face as Atletico Madrid stirred up, and then edged the competition right at the death. Everybody stood […]
