Holiday Glee Begins (EPL Talk Review Podcast)

The glee begins but reality has set in at the FA as Luis Suarez was charged. However the process is far from over. In the first section of the EPL Talk podcast we look at the initial reaction and what might come of the harsh words spoken by all parties. The FA still has a lot to learn about PR…

Apart from the news, the football has been excellent, delivering drama and class in equal amounts. We bring that together in section two as Kartik and Kristan get the opportunity to analyse all nine of the games. Annoyingly, it has almost become normal that Manchester rules the roost, so we take a look at the class and cheers being spread around the league.

Section three previews Spurs v. Chelsea, a huge derby in the context and a headache for both managers as they try to impose their will on the top four. With injuries in key positions for Harry and a selection headache for AVB who will be 3rd on Christmas day?

We also encourage you to listen to Richard Farley’s audio documentary for EPL Talk. It is a little Christmas present from The Gaffer. Go to for the audio series.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, just Premier League matches. So what are your predictions, as we transition into the run of games,Tweet along with the podcast and give us your views for the next show:

    Still amazes me to think that Manchester City was down in the 3rd division just 12 years ago, now to become the force they are.

    Hey Pierto,

    I must admit, as a trio we all debated how long to attribute to the racism issue. As we said, it’s a complex issue with no definitive answer. The fact that it is even an issue is a concern, given the huge strides this country and the league has made to eradicating racism.

    Thanks for your feedback though, it’s always nice to get new opinions.

      Evra has a bit of a history playing the race card. If racisim was truly a deep rooted social problem, Evra would not have the opportunity to be on the pitch. And THAT would be a seious problem. A Hispanic player, calling a black player a black player- hard for me to see the fuss.

      I think we have all become a bit overly sensitive on these issues- which diverts the discussion from the serious matter of equal opportunity. I am more concerned of the lack of black managers in the EPL and football in general. That does not smell right to me.

    Overkill on the racism issue. The diversity of millionaire footballers would not be millionaire footballers if racism was a problem. End of story.

      Hey Pietro,

      I’m just trying to understand your point: because there is diversity racism doesn’t matter?

        I think this has become witch hunt Laurence. The real issue is equal opportunity. The most important thing is everyone gets a shot to live their dream.

        This Suarez-Evra matter is a play ground tussle gone viral. Slagging off players on the pitch is part and parcel of sports- not gentlemenly- I would rather players hold themselves to higher standards- but this matter racism?- no- not even close.
