The Off The Post podcast is much like the Oscars: it’s full of inflated egos, often rambles on for too long, and is ultimately just a load of hot air.
This week we’ve donned our most ravishing evening gowns to present to you the following: ear nibbling at St Andrews, a Turkish free-kick showdown, Sam Allardyce’s on-air job interview, and the Italian Jeff Stelling losing it.
We’ll also be pitching our Premier League-based film ideas to film critic Ellen E. Jones, and of course rounding up all the best of the weekend’s action. Now for the lengthy and tearful acceptance speech…
Viva La Vids
Conclusive proof that Leyton Orient’s Johnathan Tehoue is better than Lionel Messi. WARNING: This video contains scenes that some Arsenal fans may find extremely offensive.
Orient manager Russell Slade after his side’s draw against the Gunners: “Ever since the chairman bought the lads those little Nintendos my job’s been a piece of cake. If I need to get the boys pumped up at half time I just pit them against each other for a couple of laps of Bowzer’s Castle-that really gets them in the zone. Just look at the results.”
Leighton Baines showing the skills required to be inducted into the OTP Knighthood. And proving he crosses the ball. A lot.
Eskisehispor’s Pele and Sezer Ozturk proving that water doesn’t flow that easily under the bridge in the Turkish top flight. At least Pele did his namesake proud-the big Viagra deal is probably just around the corner.
The Italian version of Soccer Saturday putting Phil Thompson to shame when it comes to blatantly biased reporting. Surely it’s about time Sky invested in some massive red clocks straight from the 80s to go on the front of each pundits’ desk too?
