Don’t Count Them Out (EPL Talk Podcast Weekend Review Show)

If this weekend has taught football anything…it is not to write anyone off. Lesson learnt as Chelsea underestimated their London counterparts and came away with more questions than answers. Arsenal fans should be proud of their team, but the pod ask if every week will be like this for Arsene Wenger and his Captain Vantastic.

John Terry has made a name for himself, what do you think of him? We discuss his actions and if they make him racist or merely part of a much wider network which makes up British football right now. Discrimination still exists but in what capacity and how do we confront that?

Northern teams also kicked a ball this weekend. We look at their progress. Noisy neighbours and discontented old men make comments which they shouldn’t and end up offending us all as both United and City get a win.

The relegation candidates have also made a case for their salvation, but some monstrous sides have let them down in recent weeks. Have referees served Blackburn well or condemned them to relegation? Are Wigan strong enough up front to survive?

    Good lord. If I’m ever accused of a crime, I want Jess Chula no where near my jury. Apparently the fact that people hate you and you’ve been talked about before is enough to make you guilty of any new accusation thrown your way. First Suarez, now John Terry.

      A court of law and the court of public opinion are (thankfully) two very different things. I do happen to agree that Terry being an adulterer and Terry being a racist is a stretch. One I’m not willing to make. But Suarez bit a player.

      Let me repeat that. Suarez BIT A PLAYER. He took a bite of out of an opposing player. This is not up for debate. There are youtube videos if you’re interested. How hard is it to image that he might say something offensive – even racially offensive – to an opposing player?

        Hey Reba & JC,

        The two stories are actually very different instances. It’s actually quite irresponsible for me to equate the two stories on the podcast, because whilst they fall under the same umbrella they are culturally very different instances. Two different sets of people and circumstances.

        I guess looking for a character reference for either player is difficult. Suarez often gets good ones from the people around him but instances on the pitch say different. There is a big difference between biting and being racist though. There is more evidence for John Terry saying racist things than Suarez, just difficult for some people to take because he’s the England Captain too.

        It doesn’t matter who it is, this doesn’t belong anywhere. If he was racist then it doesn’t matter if anyone wants to press charges or not. The FA should act.

        Let me know what you think,

        Laurence

          I’ll certainly agree with your last point. If either of these stories is true it will be very disappointing to learn. If they both are, what the hell??? It will make me think this is happening a lot more frequently than any of us realize…which is pretty terrible news.

    Is Kristan male or female?

    Where can I download this?

    I’m not going to sit in front of my laptop to listen to it.

    Just started listening to weekly podcast…. For the most part, the guests are knowledgeable and provide quite interesting commentary. EXCEPT for this Jesse character. He is more than likely a great guy and do not mean to attack him personally, but he needs to find a new hobby. Why do you ask this guy for his take on anything??? He makes random obvious comment after random obvious comment. Kartik and other guest tend to provide concrete examples and a breakdown of tactics. Jesse provides very little real insight and is excruciating to listen to as he repeats generic phrases – “Showed a good account of himself” or “Comedy of errors”. Really! Luis Suarez is INVOLVED!!! Thanks for that Jess! Have this guy step up his game or give him the boot.

      We must be listening to different podcasts because I’m 15 minutes into this one and I’ve already heard Jesse provided detailed analysis of Chelsea’s performance, AVB’s play style, and Arsenal’s back line (and Santos’ belt line)

        I can second that he is a “great guy” and his personal hygiene leaves nothing to be desired 🙂
