OTP Podcast: Episode 5 – Manc Monopoly
Asamoah Gyan: taxi kebab whore
Just like the Champions League, the Off The Post Podcast is back, and my word do we have some European themed treats for you. Exclusive behind the scenes access to a brand new Heineken Championss League ad campaign you say? An exclusive interview with Monsieur Patrick Viera you cry? Why yes sir, we have all of this, plus a sprinkling of everyone’s favourite Dutch goal machine, Ruud van Nistelrooy.
All in all we’ve got more tricks up our sleeve than Arsene Wenger can fit in his giant Arsenal coat.
Champions League exclusives aside, we’ve also got all of this lot: AVB’s dynamite quads, violent brawls in Costa Rica, tucking into a good carvery with Dean Sturridge, and an outrageous goal celebration in Finnish lower leagues.
Add to this a round-up of the best and worst of all of the weekend’s Premier League action, and the most bizarre goings on of world football over the last seven days, and you’ve got yourself a real treat for the ear canals.
What do you do when your fiercest rivals score their fourth goal against you in a top of the table clash? Well if you’re Costa Rican top flight side Alajuelense then you start a massive brawl and ensure that the match finishes with just the 16 players on the pitch. Obviously.
A nice little musical tribute to Sao Paulo goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni, who made his 1,000 appearance for the club this week. He didn’t score though, so his goal tally remains at a poultry 102. Just over a goal every 10 games-you’ve got to be looking for more than that from a keeper.
An absolutely outrageous goal celebration that Sir Bobby Charlton would enjoy from the Finnish third division. Rumours that the team have already been snapped up for the London 2012 opening ceremony remain unconfirmed.
