Liverpool opened the John W. Henry era with one of their mos disappointing Merseyside Derby performances in recent memory. On this edition of the EPL Talk Podcast, myself, Kartik Krishnaiyer and Laurence McKenna talk about the result at Goodison Park, Villa’s result against Chelsea at Birmingham, Manchester United’s troubles with West Brom, and the rest of this weekend’s matches across the league.

One Response to English Premier League Weekend Review: EPL Talk Podcast

  1. BBC says:

    Great podcast again. Two questions that I hope you can address:

    I was fully expecting Kartik to trash City’s performance as Blackpool had space whenever they wanted, De Jong seemed timid and Tevez kept coming back to midfield to get a glimpse of the ball, and Adebayor was a waste. . . . and then Silva got off the bench and all is right with City!!

    My question is why do you think that Mancini went with two forwards in a match that the 4-5-1 would have worked brilliantly against. . . an attacking team without the pace to deal with their counter.

    And also, what do you think is the main reason that defensive formations are looked down upon in soccer when it’s not the case in other sports. Maybe it’s because my first introduction to soccer was watching the US play in leaner years, but I love a pressing defense that fights to get the ball and then …BAM!…everyone flies forward. It’s not unattractive in the least, IMHO. I like that style much more than the ticky-tack possession game that seems adored.
