FA Cup Weekend, Early Transfer Rumors: EPL Talk Podcast

The English Premier League takes a weekend off as English football shifts its focus to the FA Cup, the third round of which happens this weekend. We start today’s show, the second half of a discussion we had on Wednesday, by looking toward this weekend, specifically Liverpool’s trip to Manchester United, though that quickly descended into discussion of Liverpool and how important Sunday’s result will be to Roy Hodgson’s job and the club.

In addition, we talk about Ronaldinho and Blackburn, David Beckham and Spurs, as well as Robbie Keane at Birmingham City. It’s not our typical preview show. It’s more of a long, less structure chat, something different for this week’s edition of our lead-in show.

    I think we’ll soon see what NESV think of Roy Hodgson. Why would they give Hodgson money to spend this transfer window if they didn’t intend him to carry on as manager. I think if we don’t see any incomings into Liverpool this transfer window, then Hodgson will soon be sacked. I do though imagine they will back Hodgson is this transfer market, otherwise they would’ve sacked him earlier for a new manager to come in and stamp his mark by buying new players this January. They would be stupid to sack him after spending money on players that HE wanted.

    I think Liverpool made a big mistake making Hodgson manager. He’s made ok players play great, like at Fulham, but not made great players, like Gerrard and Torres play amazing, like they can. You just have to look at his time at Inter Milan.

    I think the Liverpool v United will feature both first teams, Fergy has already said he doesn’t want a repeat of last year with Leeds, so sadly I think its going to be a very long week for Hodgson again between the United and the next premier league game.

      Very interesting, Andy, though I do wonder if the hiring of Damien Comolli is going to obscure how much we’ll be able to read into the money NESV does or does not spend.

        Good point, I still think the buying of players at Liverpool will be a 50-50 decision between Damien Comolli and the Liverpool manager, so I suppose we could still read slightly into it, and if NESV did let Damien Comolli buy players, without the planned long term manager having a say, it would show how much NESV and their advisers know about football.

          And whether we know what the power-share is like at NESV and Anfield, it will still be a lot of fun to try and read into it. Thinking on it now, it will actually be more fun, knowing less. Oh, the scenarios!
