    When Three’s Not a Crowd: Hoping that Richard comes back soon. Laurence is doing a fine stand in job as the moderator, so too Kartik as the principal pundit. But I miss Laurence’s insight and his sardonic comments about my favourite team (to paraphrase Mae West, “any attention is good attention”). So when it’s just the two of you could Laurence try and wear two hats and offer a bit more opinion?
    I enjoyed the focus on the lower prem teams a couple of podcasts ago. Hope to hear more, partic. as the lower part of the league is pretty exciting.

    Shawn I don’t think Stoke will be able bully City as they are also a very large, powerful and physical side just like Stoke. With players such as Yaya, De Jong, Richards and Kompany to name a few they are a match for them in that department. Which teams have bullied them? I haven’t seen this happen. City have better quality but I don’t think this will count for to much in this game, it’s a one off game that any of the two can win. I am very happy to hear that the City Manager and players are very weary of Stoke and well aware that it is not over yet, otherwise I think it would be advantage Stoke but City are showing the respect that the other finalist deserve.

    Good show, as always. I’m going on record, however, that I’m calling a Stoke win in the FA Cup final – Stoke will not only “bring it” to City, but I expect that they will bully (could be read as “play dirty”) and City doesn’t respond well to that style of play. Expect an ugly, ugly, UGLY game!

      Could be the first FA Cup final that ends in a draw and the winner declared based on number of fouls called against.

    Balotelli, what a winker, what a winker!

    Shortest review show ever? Add in there was no midweek preview show. Steering us towards the pay model for the site?

      Haha, No Martin. It was just a timing issue for Kartik and I. There is no intent for the content to change here! Even though it was shorter, I hope you enjoyed the show.

        Like Laurence said, it was a scheduling conflict. I think we can be excused one Football Weekly-length show for once.

          Well, as an Arsenal fan I was looking forward to Kartik slamming the team after the debacle that was the Liverpool game. I imagine Laurence was elated. Was hoping to hear a bit more about it than what was presented.

          Keep up the good work!
