#149: Nemanja is an Island

Manchester United may have beaten Brighton and sealed their place in the final four of the FA Cup, but without the island of personality that is Nemanja Matic, where would they be? Chelsea, Southampton and Spurs join them in the final stages of the FA Cup and there's a lot riding on this competition for all involved. In the Premier League, Mo Salah continues to shine as Liverpool demolish Watford 5-0. The Champions League quarter finals have been drawn with the all England affair of Man...


#148: Olympic n' Mix

Colm returns (unscathed) after his journey to the London Stadium as West Ham lose 3-0 to Burnley, Jamie Carragher spits at a moving car as Liverpool are outclassed by Man United, and Southampton need a new manager as Pellegrino's given the boot. Joey Barton's Banterrific Banterman Bonanza continues the trend of violent acts as it includes a red card, a gun, and a head meeting an elbow. All this plus Win, Lose, or Draw where we're all terrible. Get your friends on board and listen to...


#147: Brighton Eyes

Even though we were forced to miss a week, not an awful lot has changed. Man City beat everyone (and are Carabao Cup winners), Arsenal aren't fantastic, oh, and Brighton are pretty decent, too. Lionel Messi's efforts basically decide the La Liga title and, sadly, Fiorentina captain Davide Astori died of cardiac arrest at the young age of 31. Joey Barton's Banterrific Banterman Bonanza includes Marco Reus' website, and a look at what's been happening with VAR since our last show. All this...


#146: West Brom vs Southampton Was Filmed in Front of a Live Stadium Audience

The FA Cup 5th round proved more entertaining than we envisioned as Wigan's Will Grigg was on fire against Man City, and Rochdale's big Steve Davies came up trumps against Spurs. But the real story of the week revolved around four West Brom players, a few bags of chips, and a taxi in Barcelona. Joey Barton's Banterrific Banterman Bonanza has a cross Mick McCarthy, a foolish Marek Hamsik, and a wonderful Twitter exchange. All this plus Win, Lose, or Draw where our predictions continue to...


#145: Paulitics

Paul Pogba was hauled off the pitch as Man United lost 1-0 to Newcastle United leading many to believe there's trouble between the £90m man and his boss. Spurs bossed their North London rivals around the pitch as Lacazette couldn't convert in front of goal. And we pay tribute to the late Liam Miller who lost his life to pancreatic cancer last Friday. The Champions League is back again and brings with it some poor predictions, Wes Hoolahan has retired from international football, and Sky...


#144: Chitty Chitty Aubameyang

Aubameyang has arrived at the Emirates and factored into Arsenal's 5-1 demolition of Everton, but Ramsey and Mkhitaryan contributed a bit, too. While penalties may have dominated the discussion around Liverpool and Spurs' 2-2 draw, let's not forget that we saw two impeccable goals from Wanyama and Salah on the day, too. And does Antonio Conte want to leave Chelsea already? Like, is he actively trying to get sacked from the club? Joey Barton's Banterrific Banterman Bonanza returns and...


#143: A Complete VARce

VAR was the star of the show at Anfield as West Brom beat Liverpool despite losing many, many minutes to the video assistant referee. Newport County will be heading to Wembley in their FA Cup replay as they held Spurs to a 1-1 draw. And Leroy Sane was taken out in Wales, but Neil Warnock would have you believe it was England. Rumour Has It heats up as Riyad Mahrez puts in a transfer request, Daniel Sturridge turns down Newcastle, and the Aubameyang / Batshuayi / Giroud triangle goes down...


#142: Hi-ho, Silva! Away!

Watford lost 2-0 to Leicester City and it was the nail in Marco Silva's Hornet-shaped coffin as he has been replaced by Javi Gracia, but what's next for the man that was almost Everton manager? James McCarthy suffered a horrific leg break in a freak accident with Salamon Rondon in Everton's game with West Brom. And Liverpool's 1-0 loss to Swansea outlined where Coutinho would've been handy. Rumour Has It looks at all the potential signings Chelsea might make over the next week, but more...


#141: Ox Office Attraction

Liverpool and Man City treated us to a seven goal thriller at Anfield as the home side defeated the champion elect with an in form Oxlade-Chamberlain, a sensational Firmino, and a song that we've taken into our hearts. Spurs destroyed Everton as Heung-Min Son was the humble star of a 4-0 thrashing. And after being a bit further down on their shortlist than he'd probably like, Paul Lambert is now Stoke City manager and has a serious task on his hands. Rumour Has It starts off with one...


#140: Lichaj Hopes

The FA Cup third round saw Arsenal fall to Nottingham Forest and the wannabe dog owner Eric Lichaj, Virgil Van Dijk becomes an instant hero at Anfield after helping Liverpool defeat their bitter rivals, and Erik Lamela is apparently a very nice man. We also look at the biggest match-up of the week: Jose Mourinho vs Antonio Conte. The two managers throw barbs at each other in press conferences while we ask if it's all gone a bit too far. Rumour Has It asks who Liverpool will replace...


#139: Good and Twenty

Are there too many matches on over the Christmas period? Perhaps. Do the TFH crew try and cover all 20 Premier League games since the last episode? Without a shadow of a doubt. They start with the sublime 2-2 draw between Arsenal and Chelsea which, despite the controversy surrounding the penalty, was a wonderful game for the neutral. Man City actually fail to win a game as Crystal Palace hold them to 0-0 draw (but don't worry, because they won the one after that against Watford). Shane...


#138: Nullmoney

Burnley get a point at Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho complains about not having enough money to strengthen his Man United side. Harry Kane is better than Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and many others as he breaks records against Southampton. And West Ham and Bournemouth battle it out in a six goal thriller. Adele returns with Rumour Has It as it's that time of the year where the transfer window swings wide open and players get linked to every last football club going, but most...


#137: Baby, There's Goals Outside

Liverpool and Arsenal leave a wonderful Christmas present under the fooballing tree with a 3-3 draw. Burnley may have been beaten convincingly by Spurs, but we take some time to congratulate them on their season thus far. And goals from Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy bag Leicester City a point against Man United. All this plus Win, Lose, or Draw where there is zero Christmas cheer. The Football Huddle would like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas! Get your friends on board and listen to...


#136: As Spurs The Norm

Manchester City get kicked around by Tottenham, but end up the arse kickers on the scoreboard. Lanzini's fall gets debated as West Ham defeat Stoke 3-0. And there's a new Fab Four in Liverpool, riding up the charts. Joey Barton's Banterrific Banterman Bonanza gets sparky, and bitter. All this plus Win, Lose, or Draw where things are getting tight. Get your friends on board and listen to Colm, Andrew and Dan every week. This is the football podcast everyone...


#135: Milk Bottled It

Man City are now 11 points clear of their nearest rivals in Man United after beating them 2-1 in the biggest game of the season. Jurgen Klopp doesn't take too kindly to Everton's style of a play as the Merseyside derby ends in a 1-1 draw. David Moyes tries to change the fortunes of West Ham United by beating London rivals Chelsea by a single goal. The Champions League draw brings with it some interesting ties as Spurs get Juventus and Chelsea look to take on Barcelona. All this plus Win,...


#134: Seize De Gea

The best game this season happened this past weekend at the Emirates stadium as Arsenal lost out to Man United and heroics from David De Gea. Manchester City sneak past West Ham United on the way to the most important game of their season. And the World Cup 2018 draw took place and saw England put in the same group as Belgium, Panama and Tunisia. Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza: In Memoriam includes a referee at Stamford Bridge, a goalkeeper in Italy, and confusion between...


#133: Salah's Field

A Willian cross saves a point for Chelsea against the might of one Mo Salah and Liverpool. Crystal Palace's form picking up as Loftus Cheek and Zaha push the club further away from the drop zone. And Huddersfield make Man City sweat until Raheem Sterling saves the day. Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza: In Memoriam includes a tea-sipping comeback, a man in disguise, and a monkey. All this plus Win, Lose, or Draw where the tension is constantly rising. Get your friends onboard...


#132: Ozil Warming

Wenger went with Ozil, Sanchez, and Lacazette against bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur and it proved to be the right decision as they beat their neighbours 2-0. West Brom's 0-4 loss to Chelsea was the final straw for Tony Pulis as he was handed his P45 by the club. And Manchester United welcomed back a warrior in Paul Pogba and a lion in Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the red half of Manchester beat Newcastle by three goals. Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza: In Memoriam includes football...


#131: Irish Eyes Aren't Smiling

The 32 teams that will be at the World Cup in Russia are almost all sorted and two teams that won't be there are Ireland and Northern Ireland as both lost out to Denmark and Switzerland, respectively. So, what next for Martin O' Neill and his aging side, and where does Michael O' Neill go from here? Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza: In Memoriam includes a commentator showing his bias and a post match interview feud that goes on and on. All this plus Win, Lose, or Draw where...


#130: Jobs for the Moyes

Slavin Bilic is out and David Moyes is in as West Ham United lose 4-1 to Liverpool. After spending a ridiculous amount of money on him, Arsene Wenger leaves Alexandre Lacazette on the bench, only bringing him on for a consolation goal in Arsenal's defeat to Man City. And David Unsworth picks up an important win against Watford, but Everton are setting their sights high when it comes to Ronald Koeman's replacement. Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza: In Memoriam includes a man...
