It’s been said that good things come in fours and this week’s episode certainly gives proof of that fact. Robin and Jon are joined by the Team’s South American correspondent, Nico, and the thinking woman’s football pundit, Ceylon, as they step boldly into the new era of footballing dominance in which the little guy wins.
This week’s Panini sticker book antics sees the Team go head-to-head in a game of Top Trumps, answering questions such as: ‘Who looks most like a prisoner from Azkaban?’.
Predictably enough, the team discuss a number of Talking Points:
- We’re All Foxes Now – A Special Report from the King Power Stadium
Leicester City were crowned Champions of England this week. In a twist of fate even more implausible than that, however, Jon managed to get tickets to the game. He presents this Special Report for the Team:
- Dybala-t Papers Are In – Serie A as a better league than La Liga?
After Paulo Dybala’s comment that Messi and Ronaldo wouldn’t score as many goals in Serie A as La Liga, Robin asks the Team if they buy this line.
- 20,000 Premier Leagues below Europa – Can, Ibe any clearer?
Ceylon, like Jack before her, thinks that coming onto A Team of John O’Sheas gives her license to moan about her own team. Liverpool are well worth a moan though so we let her off this time. With great form in the Europa but woeful showings in the Premier League, are Liverpool the most frustrating team in the world?
- Intertoto? I’ve a feeling we’re not in Europe any more…
We don’t need Tim Vickery – we’ve got our own South American expert, Nico. After getting over the initial shock of his accent, Ceylon calms herself as Nico explores one of the main sticking points between South American and European football – the phenomenon of the intercontinental cup. Why, he poses, do Europeans just not get it?
They then turn their attention to the Question No One is Asking which this week is:
Who is the worst player to have a Premier League winner’s medal?
Here’s a big clue:
Don’t forget to vote in this week’s Question Everyone is Asking:
Who is the most likely to be a hipster?
