Motions Eleven (EPL Talk Review Podcast)

We’ve passed the ten game point in the Premier League and as we all say, it’s time to look at the sides in a wider context and break down where they have been and where they are headed this season. Some evaluations might sound a little harsh but this is the point in the season that people begin to look at why they are so happy or sad with their sides. Performances now can earn a manager plaudits or some ‘rest’.

Our guest this week, Jamie from 3for3 joins us and talks about Aston Villa. He’s back to add his opinion to the pod and you can find him at @jamiewh_ on Twitter.

Football moves on even if some of the people don’t, or is that true? Would the press be happy if we didn’t have such farcical defending in the league? Would they be happy if it was technically perfect and not open football? Why do you watch football? Let the podcast know:

    Is the brief coverage of Arsenal in this podcast (4 minutes or so.. with Lawrence dishing the dig on how ‘no one wants to go to Arsenal’, and also wonderfully contributing an extremely transcendent “….. Hmm” to end the segment/move on to Fulham after Jaime touched on a few points..) to spare the fans that don’t need to listen anymore to the dreadful horror of how the club has been underperforming, as well as all the confusion in regard to inconsistency/fall from grace etc etc, then it would be at the very least understandable..

    Or maybe the 3-3 draw against Fulham is expected now in this underachieving Arsenal squad.. It’s ‘natural’ now, so it’s too mundane to devote much time to.. Makes sense, I guess.

    United only gets about 4 minutes of coverage as well, as I presume their ‘comeback’ DNA and how ‘natural’ it is also called for a little chat. Nothing out of the ordinary, so to speak.

    Liverpool, however, 15 minutes – Lawrence’s club. Manchester City 15 minutes – Kartik’s club. Not surprised.

    At least there isn’t outright bashing on here, but I guess Arsenal need to perform again for there to be a bit more input (where was Kartik anyway? He was nice to big Arsenal up earlier in the season.. sorry to disappoint, Kartik! Still bullshit problems at the club).. Then again, I definitely get the impression that no one on that team is unbiased when it comes to them.. honestly.
    Get yourselves a Gooner on the team for a change..

      Hi Louis,

      Thanks for the feedback. We’ve covered Arsenal quite a lot this season in terms of form. But Editorially the featured match of the week was CFC v LFC, so a little more time on them would make sense. Arsenal – Spurs is our featured game next week so we’ll spend more time on them when it comes.

      Kartik hasn’t been on for a little while so, again, editorially it makes sense to update with him.

      There is nothing natural in the league, maybe I don’t make it clear enough but some things we say are tongue in cheek. We’ve questioned the coverage of United and their ‘natural’ ability for a few seasons now – I certainly have.

      I admit, that we can’t cover every game in the way that we would like to with time etc. I think the evaluation wasn’t unfair of Arsenal. Am I right in saying that? In saying “No one wants to go to Arsenal” it’s a throw away comment, I’m an Arsenal supporter in terms of what they build towards and the club, I like them. Maybe I should be more careful with my words.

      We’re looking at Gooners, you’ll hear that some time soon.

      Again, I really appreciate the feedback and breakdown, thank you. If you have any more comments, post them below.

          (Ignore that previous comment haha. Embarrassing.. My mischievous cousin wrote and posted that as I was away, getting ready to respond.)

          Thank you for the response, Laurence. As always your points are clear and accurate. I should have taken into consideration the idea of feature matches, which I must have overlooked since I was somewhat anxiously expecting a bit more time spent on the game considering it was telling of Arsenal’s defensive dilemma. Attacking as clearly not the problem as it was at Old Trafford last week. A bit more diversion into Giroud’s breakthrough and maybe a little debate on who should have taken the penalty etc. I realize that one might think, “Well, then, that would make it an Arsenal podcast,” but I’m not asking for full dedication but I guess I just expected more than just 4 minutes. I guess that’s where an Arsenal voice on the pod would change things up a bit. Or maybe it doesnt really need it. I guess I just expected too much. As you say its the featured match next week and you have indeed devoted much time to the Gunners since the start of the season.
