Coshcast S6E5: The podcast about nothing

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.

Coshcast: North London Derby & the Derby della Capitale

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?

Coshcast: Mané gives and gets the boot, Messi shoots, shoots, shoots.

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.

Man United vs. Arsenal: World class or no class

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.

Valencia CF: Learning the hard way

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…

Under The Cosh in Europe: Part 2 – Barcelona

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.

What’s your position?

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.

Manchester United – Season Review

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

Real Moyesiedad

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 […]

La Liga Preview

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 […]
