Migsy is off to make a name for himself in the big city for the next few weeks so we’ll hold the fort for him in his absence. This week, its the original trio – Jon, Robin and Paddy – who are collectively greasing the mic.
As ever, the team discuss a number of Talking Points:
- 20,000 Leagues Under the Prem – A Potted History of Gloucester City
After one of our loyal fans contacted us this week asking for a shout-out for Gloucester City, there was little we could do than send our Non-League Specialist, Simon ‘Paddy’ Statterson, to do some investigative journalism. We learn of the infamous Gloucester Floods of 2007, the erstwhile manager of Sierra Leone who began his managerial career at Gloucester, and the World of Smiles Stadium which became the new home of Gloucester after their watery woes.
- Put Johans Together for Cruyff – Did Cruyff Turn European Football around?
After the sad news this week of the death of Johan Cruyff, Jon asked the team whether they thought that Cruyff really was the greatest European player.
- Hype-notised by England? Can’t we just go into a tournament with our feet on the ground?
England, England, England. It’s all Robin seems to speak about these days. And it’s all everyone seems to speak about. One good game and their fans have them nailed on to win the next major tournament. Robin asks about the hype: is it justified? and what about Wayne Rooney?
They then take up the Question that No One is Asking:
Who would win between France’s Starting XI and their Subs Bench?
The lineups for both sides can be found here.
You can also vote in this week’s Twitter poll: Who is the best French winger?
