Total Football Analysis EPL Podcast #36

Matchday 32 was a ho hum Premier League week while the Champions League semi finals and FA Cup weekend were alright.  Not so fast, on Sunday the big, big news emerged of the European Super League, which swallowed the Spur’s sacking of Mourinho.  We found one person crazy enough to advocate for the ESL, or at least to make a “fair and balanced” conversation.  We unpack the ESL and discuss why Mou was sent packing.

Total Football Analysis EPL Podcast #31

Matchday 24 seems like we have hit an inflection point where we are deja vu all over again.  Almost a super league within a league.  Man City looks unbeatable even without Aguero and KDB.  Man United is perceived to be underperforming even though they are in 2nd place.  Will Leicester have the staying power after beating up on the once-mighty Liverpool?  And Moyes has got West Ham as the I-think-I-can locomotive and tops in London.  Ah, Chelsea just stole the dream away.  We do a deep dive on the hopes, failings and any potential resurrections.
