Efforting? (EPL Talk Review Podcast)

Perspective isn’t always a good thing in the Premier League. By that, the pod mean that you can justify anything from a perspective, you just have to chose the right one. At this point in the season, it’s about time to step back and take a look at your own. If you think your side is boring, does that reflect on you at all?

We always say it, ten games in and it’s about time that we took a look at the season so far, but also the run to come. They begin to come thick and fast right now and the only side entering this period with any form of satisfaction: Manchester United. After another win over previous-challengers Arsenal, this one looked rather tame or at least tired. Are Gunners beginning to feel the same? Let the podcast know:

    I agree with Laurence’s point about Arsenal. I haven’t been following the Premier League for very long, but piling on on Arsenal seems to be a sort of mini-sport in itself. It got old for me in the second month I was watching this league, especially because the critics – whether fans or pundits – never bring anything new to their criticism.

    And to the point about whether Arsene Wenger should be sacked, the call to fire the manager of an underperforming team usually seems to be more about obtaining some sort of catharsis than it is about improving the team’s chances of winning. After all, very few calls for the firing of a manager come with suggestions for who should replace him.

    Forgot to add: I have to take issue with Morgan on one thing: Fernando Torres was not a 50-million-pound striker when he was brought to Chelsea for that sum. He was playing decently for Liverpool in the first half of the 2010-2011 season, but was he worth that amount of money? I don’t think so. IIRC, he had been underperforming for Liverpool even before the World Cup.

    • Morgan Green says:

      Hey Gillyrosh,

      I agree he was no where near worth the £50 million price tag Roman paid for him at the time. But that is still the price he paid for him and whether he plays to that level or not, he’s always going to have that price tag hanging over his head.

      • gillyrosh says:

        Oh, I very much agree with you there; I think that sum – and the expectations it created – is one of the main reasons he has not performed consistently since moving to Chelsea.

    OF COURSE West Ham are featured last on the podcast yet again, and got perhaps 10 seconds of discussion. We got a lengthy break down of Mancini’s struggles domestically and in Europe. No mention of the fact that West Ham have organized themselves and kept a clean sheet against the defending league champions. I know my team might not be a glamorous side, but we currently sit 8th and I think any other side coming up from the Championship sitting 8th and earning a draw (which should have been a win if not for an incorrect offside call) would warrant a bit more than the mere seconds of mention we got here. It’s understandable your focus will fall more to the ‘big 4′ sides as well as the teams that used to be counted among the big 4, but I think that at least a mention of the other sides is in order if your podcast is going to be called EPL talk and not, ‘Top 4 and sides we happen to like talk.’
