OTP Podcast: Episode 30 – Fernando Scorres
Not for the first time this season, events in the world of football have transcended the sport for the worst possible reasons. Here at the OTP Podcast we are the first to admit our irreverant tone is not best suited to discussing such heartbreaking occurrences, however our thoughts are of course with Fabrice Muamba, his family and team-mates – and we’re grateful to the heroic medics whose instant response spared a far greater tragedy.
Elsewhere, the Pod was left knee-deep in water after Fernando Torres cranked open the floodgates, but still found time to paddle around the rest of the domestic action and enjoy something rarer than a Wolves clean sheet: a Premier League/FA Cup hybrid weekend!
So why not pop the waders on and enjoy some of the following: kicking back in the Chelsea common room, Norwich’s nice green kit, why you’ve got to be tough to play in the Hong Kong under 12s league, and the much vaunted return of Paddy’s Football League roundup (sort of).
Conchordia Chijana goalkeeper Idan Baruch got hooked off at half time after giving off the impression thatnhe is fact allergic to handling footballs.
Not content with dominating European football, Barcelona have now turned their hand to toppling authoritarian regimes. According to Syrian state television, rebels have used this goal scored by David Villa against Real Madrid as a map to coordinate smuggling weapons across the country.
Kitchee v ESF in the Hong Kong Under 12s League – AKA the Lee Cattermole School Of Tackling.
