A great footy podcast, my fav pod from the general football podcasts that are not a one team or fans content. The video version on YouTube is a better experience IMH.

Juventus are out of the Champions League and in some trouble, relative to their usually lofty station…  Plus Lionel Messi is being linked with Inter Miami.

Conte's Spurs: Son is back, Automatisms, Lack of Rotation and Title Chances
3912
Joe Devine and Jon Mackenzie are joined by Nathan A. Clark from The Extra Inch podcast to talk all things Tottenham Hotspur. After an excellent 21/22 season (after Nuno left), heavy squad investment and a proper Conte pre-season, Spurs were expected to fly this season.

However, the performances haven't been promising and Kane & Son haven't been firing as usual. What should we expect from Tottenham Hotspur this year? The guys also talk about De Zerbi's exciting move to Brighton, Juventus' disappointing season with Allegri, Brendan Rodgers hitting rock bottom with Leicester and Bayern Munich not living up to expectations.

3797
Joe Devine, Seb Stafford-Bloor, Jon Mackenzie and JJ Bull are here to talk about all of the football. The V.A.R. ruined everyone’s weekend, but what to do about it? Manchester United beat league leaders Arsenal, but is there such a thing as a good defeat? The Merseyside derby served up a rejuvenated Everton and a Liverpool who are still a bit less good than last season.  Celtic put four past Rangers in the lead up to both teams playing in the Champions League group stages. But will feasting at Europe’s top table just make both Glasgow giants even more unreachable for other Scottish clubs? And Leicester have one point from a possible eighteen in the Premier League.

Joe Devine, Seb Stafford-Bloor and Jon Mackenzie are joined by Amitai Winehouse from The Athletic to have a little chat about the football. Brighton have made yet another great start to a Premier League season, but what exactly makes them so good? Liverpool have not started as well as most thought they would, and do they need to overhaul their midfield earlier than they expected? Are Manchester City leaky at the back and, if they are, does it really matter when they score a bazillion goals?  We discuss how Southampton’s risky pressing very nearly worked against Manchester United.  Plus how many Freddos would potential United signing Antony be worth?

Did Newcastle set out a blueprint for teams to stifle Man City in their 3-3 draw at St James Park? Or do they just have Alain Saint-Maximin… Leeds pressed Chelsea so much that they cracked in a 3-0 defeat at Elland Road. We have a substantial splash into Serie A to talk about who may seize this season’s Scudetto. PSG pumped Lille 7-1 and are looking really, really good under Christophe Galtier.
