OTP Podcast: Season Preview – Ruud Awakening
Tick, tick, BOOM (birthplace of Romelu Kukaku)
Greetings! The Off The Post Podcast is back, by no popular demand whatsoever. We’ve completed our money-spinning tour of the Far East and raised the Pod’s profile in the USA through a series of exhibition recordings across its Western seaboard, and now we’re back to match fitness and ready to fill your cochlea with audio goodness once more.
And to kick things off we’ve got WORLD EXCLUSIVE (yep that’s right, a WORLD EXCLUSIVE) interview with one of the top goal scorers in Champions League history. No lie! Weren’t expecting that, were you?
Fresh out of the blocks like a newly signed Ade Akinbiyi with something to prove, we’ve also got all of this for you in our Premier League preview pod: Finger lickin’ with Ryan Nelsen, Mike Phelan’s seemingly drug-induced new look, questionable piercings Down Under, scooter-based high-jinx in Italy, and what happens when Real Madrid take on China.
Consider this season’s curtain officially raised.
Blackburn demonstrating in their new advert for owners Venky’s that if Usain Bolt can win Olympic gold on chicken nuggets, then they can win PL games using the energy of piping hot drumsticks. Time to hand the club nutritionist his P45 perhaps?
Arsene Wenger’s newest defensive recruit Carl Jenkinson proving that he should have no problem fitting right in with the current Arsenal backline.
Luis Suarez proving he’s always been adept at handling a ball (long before anyone in Ghana had ever heard of him) on this Uruguayan version of Fun House. Anyone know the Spanish for “Whole lot of fun, prizes to be won?”
Real Madrid really stepping things up in pre-season with a match against 109 Chinese kids. Highlights include the bust-up between two of the six year olds, and the inability of the Chinese No.4 to pass, despite having 108 options at all times.
Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentis fulfilling all Italian stereotypes once he’s decided that this year’s Serie A fixture list has been rigged. Mamma Mia!
In one of the most bizarre sendings off of all time, Aaron Ecclestone of the Old Hill Wanderers (the pride of Melbourne’s lower league system) gets shown a red for having a piercing…erm…..down under. Ouchy.
