Why Always Me? (EPL Talk Podcast Weekend Review Show)

In one of the most entertaining weekends in the Premier League this season, there were plenty of talking points for Kartik Krishnaiyer, Jesse Chula and The Gaffer to discuss including Manchester City’s thrashing of United, Liverpool’s draw against Norwich, the “rugby match” between QPR and Chelsea and much more.

A ton of topics were discussed including: where the City win ranks in the history of the club, whether Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is fast becoming a replacement for Theo Walcott, how much United missed Sneijder (or not), whether Chelsea fans should be concerned about their side’s disciplinary record, and more.

We’ll be back mid-week with another episode of the EPL Talk Podcast. In the meantime…

    This is my second season listening to the podcast and my Monday walk to work is always enjoyable because of some great analysis.

    At the start of this episode I was a bit surprised to hear the gafferand had to ceck that I was listening to the right podcast. After settling into the gaffer’s style I found it quite enjoyable and would love to hear the gaffer, Laurence, Jesse and Kartik together in one podcast.

    Just to clarify I am a fan of the podcast and the purpose is not to trash anyone but give honest feedback of what I am enjoying. A big reason I would like you all to go deeper is because you know the game so well and are capable of it. I am not a fan of Fulham, BB or NC but when I hear a point I hear myself asking myself a question based on what i hear and then it moves on while on the big 4/5 you naturally tend to linger and go deeper. I am a Tottenham fan and how to best use VV is an issue I’ve been mulling as well as observing how Harry keeps him happy but not hurt the team with his place on the pitch. It’s a very intersting conundrum and the discussion was fruitful, keep it up.

      Totally got that gbewing. We’ll keep trying to get deeper analysis every week. We’re still working things together on the podcast. It is taking time but I hope you agree that we’re going in a good direction so far. Keep the feedback coming.

    Hi gbewing,

    That food for thought is almost as good as this paella…thanks for the constructive feedback. If more analysis like that is what you’re looking for then be sure to keep that kind of feedback coming. What are you looking for in the show? I’m always happy to include analysis about what people want to hear.

    Despite the technical malfunction I enjoyed the Gaffer adding some newness to the show. There was a wider berth given to discussing other teams outside the usual who the participants are most comfortable talking about. The Raffy VV tactics discussion was an example of something likely would not get discussed unless Gaffer asks a follow up question to trigger some thinking. The insight is usually great but sometimes the boys fall into ruts of repetition on the same topics week in week out. The “lesser” popular teams could benefit from a deeper breakdown like Tottenham was given this week. Teams like Blackburn (I know everyone hates the owners but can we move past that 1 week and talk about the team itself and their tactics) Fulham- what changes has the new manager made and how has that affected the early poor results? He comes with a good reputation is this a team needs time to gel or is their a tactic-personnel problem with fitting in. Even breaking down 1 mid-lower table team a week would be good- New castle should be a major segment, I especially would love to hear some commentary on their defensive prowess.

    The guys do a great job but lets not be afraid to go to less familiar places and even risk some disagreement among the group.

      Thanks for the good feedback. Let me be the first to admit that it’s a pretty tough call trying to watch all ten Premier League games each weekend, and if we covered each game in detail, then it would be easily a two hour show. But your constructive criticism is well put. Definitely food for thought for us.

    I 8-2 dwell on the past but Arsenal has 1-6 of their past seven games now
