In case you missed it earlier this week, I was the guest co-host on the Soccer Shout Podcast alongside Phil McThomas. You can listen to the March 13th episode via SoccerShout.com or from the ‘About Us’ page at EPL Talk under the ‘In The Media’ section.
One of the topics of discussion was the arrest of 34 fans after last Sunday’s Chelsea vs Spurs FA Cup quarter-final match. If you blinked, you probably missed it in the news, as many fans did. And the story was conveniently sweeped up the carpet.
I’ll be the guest co-host of Soccer Shout every Monday night/early Tuesday morning, so be sure to subscribe to the Soccer Shout podcast today via iTunes.
