#200: Liverpool, Champions League Winners 2018-19

6/3/2019
More
A dodgy penalty and a Divock Origi strike help Liverpool to Champions League glory, in a horrible final against Spurs, in Madrid. Does that quality matter, though? And where does Poch go from here? As well as that, we look at Eden Hazard's performance in Chelsea's 4-1 win over Arsenal in the Europa League final, and whether Sarri is out the door. Thank you for getting your friends on board to listen to Colm, Andrew, Dan, Stephen, and Sully over the last 200 episodes of The Football...

#199: Premier League 2018-19 Season Review

5/23/2019
More
The Premier League is over and that means it's time for The Football Huddle to dissect the season's events. Man City are Premier League champions; Liverpool narrowly miss out on glory after heroics from Van Dijk and co; did Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal, Man United have good seasons or not? Huddersfield, Cardiff City and Fulham are relegated; was Xherdan Shaqiri the signing of the season? Did West Ham flop? Did Angus Gunn surprise? We attempt to answer all these questions and more. And it's...

#198: Back and 4th

5/6/2019
More
Liverpool cut it fine, but a Divock Origi late winner against Newcastle saw them jump Man City (at least until they play Leicester). Crystal Palace prove too much for Warnock and Cardiff as they'll be playing in The Championship next year. And Spurs and Chelsea have ended up in the top four, but we're not sure anyone knows how. Paul Merson's Marvellous Misadventures features Bielsa on spygate 2.0, and Eden Hazard in a car. And Win, Lose or Draw sees Colm pick up an important win as we...

#197: Time Fades Olé

4/29/2019
More
Man United draw 1-1 with Chelsea as no team in England wants 4th place, Liverpool and Man City keep piling pressure on each other as we near the end of the league season, and the PFA Team of the Year is basically alright. As well as that, we look at controversy in The Championship that saw Leeds give Aston Villa a goal, and bounce around Europe to see PSG whimper their way to a title. Paul Merson's Marvellous Misadventures features Roy Keane in a studio, Ray Houghton in a car, and...

#196: A Mo-brainer

4/15/2019
More
Liverpool beat Chelsea 2-0 thanks to a Mo Salah goal of the season contender, Manchester City overpowered Crystal Palace 3-1 to continue putting pressure on their championship rivals, and Brighton are in a real relegation fight after losing 5-0 to Bournemouth. Paul Merson's Marvellous Misadventures features Shay Given's dinner, too many standers, and a QR tattoo. And Win, Lose or Draw, again, doesn't change. Whatsoever. We need to get better at this predicting lark. Still. Again. Get...

#195: Deeney-high

4/8/2019
More
Man City saw off Brighton with ease in their semi-final, whilst Troy Deeney and Watford had to go the extra mile against Wolves. In the Premier League, Liverpool were able to grind out yet another victory with some late goals against Southampton. Paul Merson's Marvellous Misadventures features the Gordon and goalkeepers And Win, Lose or Draw, again, doesn't change. Whatsoever. We need to get better at this predicting lark. Still.

#194: Lloris Brutality

4/1/2019
More
Allison didn't have the best game, but that didn't matter as Hugo Lloris stole the show for the wrong reasons as Liverpool beat Spurs 2-1 with a late winner; Cardiff City didn't get the decisions against Chelsea and Neil Warnock got cross; and Watford come close to raining on Ole's full-time employment parade. Paul Merson's Marvellous Misadventures features the pope, and even more Colin Wanker. And Win, Lose or Draw, again, doesn't change. Whatsoever. We need to get better at this...

#193: Delaneying the Inevitable

3/27/2019
More
The qualifying for Euro 2020 has begun, and has begun well for Ireland: six points from the first two games... and a tennis ball protest for former chief executive of the FAI (and current EVP) John Delaney. And England are very good. And Win, Lose or Draw sees us trying to remember the result of Man United and Wolves. Get your friends on board and listen to Colm, Andrew and Dan every week.

#192: Fan Out

3/11/2019
More
There were three incidents involving fans at football grounds at the weekend which leads us to chat about what happens now, Newcastle continue to impress as of late with a 3-2 win over Everton, and there's another argument about Henderson. We also chat about Sergio Ramos in the stands and Man United young boys on the pitch in the Champions League. Paul Merson's Marvellous Misadventures features a Countdown contestant and jump that was much larger than Lopes first thought. And Win, Lose...

#191: Kepa Wide Berth

2/25/2019
More
Whilst Man City ended up beating Chelsea on penalties in the League Cup final, the real story of the match revolved around Sarri and Kepa's disagreement over whether or not the keeper should be substituted. It was terrific. As well as that, Man United and Liverpool was as exciting as many expected, Claude Puel is no longer Leicester manager, and a dodgy corner helped Burnley defeat Spurs. And Win, Lose or Draw is actually becoming a competition. A bit. Get your friends on board and...

#190: Foden Retriever

2/18/2019
More
Man City beat a heroic Newport County 4-1 whilst Phil Foden does well (once again), Wolves see off Bristol City with Matt Doherty proving pivotal, and you already know the score of Chelsea and United, don't you? PSG see off Man United, Spurs are strong against Dortmund, and we look to this week's Champions League ties involving Man City and Liverpool. Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures is heavy on Declan Rice talk because it felt like the right place to discuss it. And Win, Lose or...

Manchester City and Sergio Aguero absolutely embarrassed Chelsea at the weekend 6-0, Liverpool bounce back after their few draws with a win against Bournemouth, and Tottenham refuse to lay down.

2/5/2019

Manchester City beat Arsenal quite comfortably as Sergio Aguero scores a hat trick to keep the pressure on Liverpool, the tributes for Emiliano Sala are felt, and Everton are in a serious rut. Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features a cat, a message to Lineker, and a headbutt. And Win, Lose or Draw might be on the turn.

#187: Another Trick in Millwall

1/28/2019
More
The FA Cup 4th round has come and gone, and has seen some big big boys lose out to lower league opposition, with Millwall beating Everton and Wimbledon defeating West Ham. As well as that, the (pretty boring) January transfer window is almost done and dusted, but there's still a few rumours to discuss as we welcome Adele back onto the show. Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features a wrestling sock and a follow-up on the Huddersfield story from last week. And Win, Lose or Draw...

#186: Deflating Sarriball

1/20/2019
More
Chelsea seem at a bit of a loss as Arsenal beat them 2-0 at the weekend, but can Gonzalo Higuain be the catalyst for change? The lads discuss whether Mo Salah is clever or shady as diving comes into his game again in Liverpool's 4-3 win over Palace. And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to prove he's the greatest manager of all time as Man United continue their winning ways against Brighton. As well as that, The Championship round-up is dominated, once again, by Marcelo Bielsa, and a glorious...

#185: X-David

1/14/2019

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer beats Mauricio Pochettino, so is obviously the frontrunner for the Man United job after wonderful performances from De Gea and Pogba. A Declan Rice goal separates West Ham and an Ozil-less Arsenal. And David Wagner and Huddersfield Town part ways in a mutual decision. As well as that, the trio discuss the delights of Leeds United, spies, and Martin O' Neill, in their Championship round-up. Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features a lot of chat on the relationship...

1/7/2019
More
After an extended Christmas break, The Huddle is back to have a look at some of the select action from the FA Cup, and have a chat about why we don't particularly care anymore. As well as that, Colm and Andrew have a look at some of the bigger moments over the Christmas period that we didn't talk about like Liverpool going onto be champions and then not when Man City beat them. Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features a golden steak and an angry Jason McAteer. And absolutely nothing...

The saga is over: Jose Mourinho is no longer Manchester United after the team's 3-1 loss to Liverpool. Man City keep pace with a 3-1 win over Everton. And Southampton have only gone and won a football match, and against Arsenal no less! As well as that, the Champions League knockout draw has been made and has provided some lovely fixtures. Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features Fellaini hitting a steward and a lovely welcome back to Dortmund. And absolutely nothing changes in Win,...

12/10/2018

David Luiz was the hero of the day at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea beat once champions elect Man City 2-0, but the game wasn't without incident as Raheem Sterling was the victim of abuse from the Chelsea fans. Liverpool capitalise on Man City's failings, as they beat Bournemouth and now find themselves on top of the table. And Dan is convinced Cardiff City are staying up. Harry Redknapp is king of the jungle, and River Plate are Copa Libertadores winners... at last. Paul Merson's Majestic...
