English Premier League Weekend Review Show: EPL Talk Podcast

Posted on by admin

The two Manchester clubs finished the English Premier League weekend tied atop the league, with Arsenals win at West Ham United creating a gap between the top three and the other two recognized title contenders. On this edition of the EPL Talk podcast, Kartik Krishnaiyer and myself take inventory of the entire league, but with particular focus on one of the more interesting title races we’ve had in many seasons, we ask whether Manchester United, in the wake of a good result at White Hart Lane, are consolidating their lead or keeping their pursuers alive.

Also, we talk about the latest news around the league, including news of a potential managerial change at Upton Park. We look around Europe and to the Championship for more results before looking forward to the mid-week FA Cup replays in England. And as always, we get your feedback on this, the weekend review edition of the EPL Talk Podcast.

    Love the podcast but would like to make a slight correction to Kartik’s scheduling analysis; he said that Chelsea plays all the big teams still at home; however, Chelsea already played Arsenal, winning 2-0 in October. I think of all the teams, Arsenal may have a slight scheduling advantage. They are done playing both City and Chelsea, and the Gunners remaining Top 5 games are at Tottenham and then hosting United at the Emirates.

    Great show as always. Missing Lawrence, but I suppose every team suffers loses during the season. :) Maybe you need to bring in a loan player to get you through – I hear Addebayor can be had for next to nothing.

    A few points…

    – I think it’s been more of a case of the big players getting worse than it has other players getting better. So Matthew Etherington, Charlie Adam and their ilk deserve a mention alongside Fabregas and Tevez and Berbatov…at least for this year. And I agree with Richard that maybe it’s a year of the defender. Vidic and Kompany have been as valuable as any players in the league. If Distin was more consistent, I’d put him up there with those two. He has moments where he looks like he’s in Vidic’s and Kompany’s class (but then a few seconds later he just looks old).

    – Glad to hear you guys mention Forest, the most successful club – historically – that isn’t in the Premier League at the moment. And one with a fair chance of getting back up this season, even if the squad doesn’t compare to the top two or three in the Championship. They have two matches in hand over the teams they’re chasing.

    – Why would Martin O’Neill want to take over at West Ham, a team looking like they’re poised to head down to the Championship even if he’s brought on? Isn’t he better than a champ manager (shut up Sven)? It seems to me he would be smarter waiting for an opening at Blackburn at the end of the season, or dare I say Liverpool providing they too don’t end up relegated (with the way things have started for King Kenny, I wouldn’t consider them all that safe).

    Finally, I asked this in your other thread, but I was probably too late. Is there any chance you could post this cast earlier or is there a reason it doesn’t get on this site until much later in the night? I’m on the west coast, so it’s not a big deal, but I’m curious enough to ask nonetheless.

    Hi JC:

    We try to have the podcast out by midnight PST (8 a.m. BST). The podcast needs a bunch of editing before I can get it out. If the edits are minimal, it comes out earlier, but out target is to have it available come Monday morning.
