The first piece of silverware handed out in 2011 goes to Birmingham City, the Blues pulling the upset of Arsenal on Sunday, defeating the Gunners 2-1 in the League Cup final. For the Blues, it’s only the second major trophy in the club’s history. For the Gunners, it’s a bitter end to a competition Arsene Wenger had targeted from its onset.
On today’s edition of the EPL Talk podcast, myself as well as co-hosts Laurence McKenna and Kartik Krishnaiyer will discuss the League Cup final, with relegation-embattled Brum earning a ticket into 2011-12 Europa League qualifying. What does the win mean to Brum, and what does the loss tell us about Arsenal?
That as well as a look at the weekend league action, where Manchester United restored their four point lead atop the table while Manchester City and Liverpool stumbled. Well also look to mid-week, when Chelsea and United will finally face-off, meeting at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.
But as with every live show (yes, we are back to live review shows, starting today), the key will be your feedback. If you’re a frequent listener to the show, you know the program is much better with your input. Use the comments (below), the UStream chat room (also below), email or Twitter to give us your thoughts, questions, critiques and concerns from anything in the football world, and we are likely to find a place for them in today’s show.
Start time will be 10 p.m. GMT, 5 p.m. EST, 2 p.m. PST, though we usually start the music and chat 30 minutes before the show. After the jump, the UStream audio/video player as well as the chat room.
