Pre-Show Open Thread: EPL Talk Podcast

EPL Talk Podcast Logo draftWell, well, well … look who’s getting the open thread up in time to give you the opportunity to really shape the show.

This weekend, the English Premier League was reshaped, with Chelsea returning to the pack, Arsenal’s struggle persisting, and Liverpool (yes, Liverpool) giving us one of the most impressive performances of the season.

With so many topics to choose from, we need your help. Use the comments (below) to let us know your thoughts on the Premier League’s 11th match day. As you know from listening to the show, your feedback could play a huge part in the show.

Also, whereas we would normally tease a link to the stream of the podcast, today we are going to stream live to the site. Come back at around 10 p.m. BST / 5 p.m. EST / 2 p.m. PST for the UStream’d, like show.

  1. LFC were left for dead three weeks ago and now sit mid-table, with Gerrard and Torres back on form and Dirk Kuyt back to give full effort. What a turnaround for the Reds.

  2. Based on this weekend’s performances, should Fabio Capello give Kevin Davies and Andy Carroll playing time for England’s upcoming friendly against France?

    The Gaffer

  3. When are Liverpool fans going to start cutting Lucas Leiva some slack. He put in one of the best performances of his career today, and it isn’t the first time he’s been arguably the best player on the pitch for LFC. Playing alongside Gerrard in midfield (rather than his argentine clone Macherano) is really bringing out the best in Lucas.

  4. Having been a long time listener of the show, I’m aware that panel member Laurence McKenna lives in London but has been to the States.

    I’m curious to hear what his opinions are concerning which country has better thai food. I think the States, what say him?

  5. Now we know why Wenger is aiming for the League Cup…it’s the only trophy he can win!

    (That line would actually be funny if it were an e-mail being read by Special 1 TV’s Wayne Rooney…)

    But seriously, what say you? A mere slump, or have the last three matches exposed this Arsenal team as incurably limp in the final third? They’ve looked it quite a bit this year…

  6. SAF always says each year if MU can get to Christmas in top 3 they have good chance t win league. That being said, they MUST buy someone in Jan transfer window like striker or attacking midfielder. I think Rooney will be sold either in Jan or summer. Despite flu depleting squad, MU looked terrible against Wolves.

  7. Maybe I am being a delusional Arsenal fan, but is part of the reason Arsenal is struggling is their match schedule congestion? They are now playing starters in every match, even the Carling Cup, when Wenger was much more willing to play young players in the Carling Cup and at times in the Champions League group stages. That combined with long travel in the Champions League and the usual injuries mean players like Chamakh, Arshavin and the centerbacks are playing almost every match in four competitions. Or am I look for excuses for a team that’s not as good as everyone thought they were?

  8. Thanks for all the comments, everybody. You’ll hear on the results tomorrow. They really rounded out the show well.
