OTP Podcast: Episode 27 – Survival Sunday
As the 2010/11 season comes to an end, the Off The Post Podcasters have been getting a bit emotional. Paddy has turned the front of his house into a Mick McCarthy mural, Ben has had ‘Farewell, Avram’ shaved into his inner thigh, and Stu now refuses to get out of the bath until Blackpool return to the Premier League.
In this edition of the Pod, we cover all the big talking points from the final weekend of the Premier League season, which includes: George Elokobi’s toilet troubles, YouTube adventures in the Wigan dugout, the contents of Roberto Martinez’s wallet, and the transfer rumour mill spluttering into action at Old Trafford.
If that wasn’t enough we’ve also got smashed noses in Hong Kong, vomiting players in Germany, and we reminisce over our favourite, and most bizarre happenings of the season, both in the Premier League and the world over. It’s the audio equivalent of staying up on goals scored.
Aaah, for once the footballing gods have been smiling on Mick McCarthy and ensured that he’ll be tearing his hair out and slowly losing his sanity for our visual pleasure for another year. The liquid that Elokobi sprays over Big Mick is still yet to be identified. Say no more.
Kai Rooney: The worst dressed child in the Premier League. Looks like replica shirts with “Daddy” on the back just don’t cut it anymore.
After South China FC’s Kwok Kin Pong got his nose broken by an over-excited teammate, he’ll be watching the next few games from the stands. Let’s just hope he hasn’t got tickets for the nosebleed seats.
River Plate’s Juan Carrizo making a little whoopsie and scooping the ball into his own net during one of world football’s biggest derbies. Not to worry though, things have probably cooled down for poor Juan seeing as the quality of the footage would suggest that it happened at some point in the 1950s.
Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp celebrating in style after his side’s Bundesliga triumph. Apparently, the writing on the piece of paper reads “we practice penalties”. Don’t understand? Nope, neither do we.
Dortmund striker Kevin ‘Hold my chips while I throw up’ Grosskreutz taking a leaf out of his manager’s book by getting equally trolleyed. Watch the escorting bouncers shake hands with glee as they successfully avert a vomit-based disaster.
