In a week where Hal Robson-Kanu forgot he was Hal Robson-Kanu for a few seconds, Paddy, Sky and Jon meet together to over-perform in the international tournament that is the world of football.
After a format change that required degree level competence in mathematics to comprehend it fully, this summer’s European Championship left us with a knock-out stage so unbalanced that it made the rising levels of inequality in modern Britain look positively insignificant. In this week’s Question that No One is Asking, we try to decide where each of the semi-finalists would finish in the Premier League?
Before that though, in accordance with Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, the team discuss a number of talking points from the previous week in football:
To begin with, at the risk of appearing like an actual football podcast, we’ll quickly recap the quarter final matches and allow Paddy to bask in the sunshine of four correct predictions.
Sky, who has nothing to do with the Murdoch empire, wants to talk about stats—football analytics are in vogue at present, but how useful are they actually in the grand scheme of things?
And as we approach the business end of the season, the Team’s own transfer market specialist, Simon ‘Paddy’ Patterson has all the up-to-date news on the ins and outs of the capitalist orgasm that is the transfer season.
All this and much more beside in this week’s episode of A Team of John O’Sheas.
