OTP Podcast: Episode 38 – Noisy Neighbours
10 months. 380 games. 1,066 goals. And yet Man City still waited until 5.52PM on the final day of the season to somehow re-hang the title race door back on its battered hinges and slam it in the face of a Manchester United team who thought they had just found the key under the doormat.
So, with the title race finally slamming shut, and Bolton slipping down the trapdoor lined with parachute payments and chickens in capes, it’s all over for another year. And before you say anything, yes it really did happen – Wigan stayed up with a game to spare.
In light of all the final day shenanigans of that cheekily structured group of teams we like to call the Premier League, why not let the Off The Post Podcast help you sift through all the post-season analysis with a bit of the following tripe:
- George Elokobi hits Wikipedia to research his new manager
- How not to organise an away trip in Bilbao
- Why Alex McLeish could find himself selling candy floss this summer
- And discover just what it felt like to watch that Sergio Aguero winner….in Mexico.
Add to this Paddy’s most compact, no-nonsense Football League update to date and a very tenuous nightclub-based end of season round-up feature, and you sir/madam have yourself quite a show. Kind of.
Proof that patio doors and Dutch football stadiums do not go well together.
Galatasary’s Felipe Melo and Emmanuel Eboue doing what we’d all do if we had just one the Turkish league – impersonating a urinating dog on stage in front of a packed stadium, before doing a nice little dance. Woof woof.
Alessandro Del Piero – we salute you and your fine career. 704 games and 290 goals for Juventus. And he did this too. Magnifico!
