“I LOVE FOOTBALL!”
With those New Year hangovers just about wearing off, why not ease yourself into 2011 with the OTP Podcast Episode 7. This week we’ll be looking at a referee being taught a lesson in Mexico, Stan Collymore’s “alternative” commentary style, a rather inebriated official in Belarus and why Sunderland’s forward line are made for the movies.
If that isn’t quite enough and you’re already reaching for the paracetemol, we’ve also got our footballing New Years resolutions for 2011, a knighthood for this season’s standout player and conspiracy theories behind Luke Varney’s rugby tackle from behind on Yaya Toure. Hopefully that should do the trick.
Some movies that don’t star the Sunderland forward line, but will help the Pod make sense. Sort of.
Fernando Torres doing what he (now occasionally) does best: scoring tasty goals.
Extra credit goes to Danny for encouraging Seal to re-record “Kiss From A Rose” after seeing this strike.
Big Stan proving he is the consummate professional when it comes to unbiased commentating. Motson, take note.
Rubens Sambueza on nutting the ref: “He had something on his chin, and I didn’t want to raise my hands as that can get you in trouble, so I just used my face to wipe it off. Honest.”
Referee Sergei Shmolik shortly after being escorted off the pitch: “In hindsight, playing a full game of ring of fire with the fourth official at half time was not such a good idea. You live and you learn.”
Can you smeeeeell what Carlo Ancelotti is cooking? Pasta, probably.
