Marcus is back in the hotseat for this week's episode as we start proceedings with Cristiano Ronaldo and his latest tantrum, before trying to get to the bottom of what's wrong at Malaga, who look destined to drop out of the top flight for the first time in ten years. We then head over to Italy to get a VAR update from James who has been keeping a close eye on the Italian authorities' mid-season meeting about the technology and its implementation. And don't think a certain Mr Tony Chapron...

There's also time to discuss Kylian Mbappe being part of the world's most fearsome, fighting team as well as the impending Clasico at the Bernabeu and whether Antoine Griezmann will one day partake in that fixture himself.

Luke returns to make the OTC team a fab four once again, and the boys open proceedings with Alberto Brignoli's heroics against Milan as the Gennaro Gattuso era starts on a suitably ridiculous note.

Schalkenfreude

11/29/2017

Italy Hit Horncastle in the Pocket

11/15/2017
More
Our man James is fuming at Gian Piero Ventura's inability to get Italy over the line and into the World Cup, and as a result we spend a good amount of time poring over what went wrong and why. Sweden meanwhile are a cock-a-hoop at making their first since 2006 - is it due to the Swedes living in a post-Zlatan world? Elsewhere we look at the best European contenders for next summer's big prize, take some time to appreciate Christian Eriksen, and look ahead to two big derbies back in club...

Cheeky Fekir

11/8/2017

We start this week's European sojourn in St Etienne as Lyon's Nabil Fekir not only runs riot but almost causes one too in a huge derby win. After that there's time to pore over Der Klassiker as Borussia Dortmund miss the chance to go top and now find themselves playing catch up to Bayern Munich. Elsewhere we mark Andrea Pirlo's retirement with a glowing tribute to the great man and wonder what's eating Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid, and there's obviously time for one or two listener...

Bielsa's Lament

10/25/2017

We're back with another episode of On The Continent and this time around there's a special treat as Jonathan Wilson steps into the absent Andy Brassell's considerable shoes. Marcus, Luke and James are in situ as usual and there's plenty to get stuck into. We spend a good amount of time in Italy and more specifically Milan as the city's two clubs experience differing fortunes, not least self-anointed Mr Milan Leonardo Bonucci, and in Rome Lazio ultras have found a new way to disgrace...

Yann Sommer's Blog

10/18/2017

On The Continent returns to much fanfare after an incredible weekend in Serie A involving yet more pressure being lumped on poor old Vincenzo Montella and Juventus being upset on their own patch. Elsewhere we take the time to cast our eyes lovingly across UEFA's World Cup qualifying playoffs as well as Nabil Fekir's emergence as the best player in France outside PSG. Finally, there's an opportunity to catch our breath after Tottenham's trip to the Bernabeu and Liverpool's big win in...

Hot Turkey

9/27/2017

Elsewhere there's chat about Real Betis, Andrea Agnelli's badly-timed indiscretions and a possible move for Chelsea's Antonio Conte back to his homeland. As ever there's also time for your questions and comments, which you can involve yourself with by...
