But What About Carlo (Weekend Review Show): EPL Talk Podcast

Posted on by admin

On a historic weekend of football in the English Premier League – one that saw a record number of Saturday goals, Manchester United’s first loss of the season, and a memorable capitulation from Arsenal – the story was Kenny Dalglish; or, the story was Carlo Ancelotti, depending on how you want to look at Sunday’s match at Stamford Bridge, a 1-0 win by Liverpool in Fernando Torres’s Blues debut. Rarely has their been a case where the difference between the managers mattered so much, but as Ancelotti failed to respond to Dalglish’s three central defender set-up, Liverpool was registering what may be a season defining victory.

On this edition of the EPL Talk Podcast, myself, Laurence McKenna and Kartik Krishnaiyer talk about that, other stumbles by the league’s title aspirants, and West Brom parting with Roberto di Matteo. We also get to you feedback, addressing the questions posed on the site before the show.

    If Chelsea are going to play the diamond, who should be in it and where? To me, it looks like Essien needs to drop into Mikel’s current role making room for Malouda, shoring up the deep midfield ball winning, eliminate the need for Terry to be trying to take the ball up, improve the forward passing, and then have Anelka or Lampard spear the diamond with Lampard or Ramires on the right at least until Benayoun gets back

    Well written
    Nice article
    Well done Liverpool for their victory yesterday
    Kenny Dalglish is certainly doing a decent job. As for Liverpool, all you wonder is when would the bubble burst. They are playing impressive football but all you wonder is where is the depth?
    As for the Liverpool fans and Kenny Dalglish, have a read:

    Ancelotti should never have changed the chemistry of a team that was doing well recently. By including Torres in the starting lineup he had to leave off Malouda who gives them width. Daglish on the other hand didn’t put Suarez in the starting lineup becuase his team has been gaining in confidence recently and he didn’t want to upset the balance. Suarez will be playing soon enough but Daglish got it right by not forcing a change now no matter how good Suarez maybe.

    Maybe Ancelotti was forced to play Torres because it was the owner that wanted Torres at the club (he has been after him for about a year) and had Torres been left out Abramovich would not have been happy.
