EPL Matchday 21 A Run Run Run Run Runaway

Image
Episode #50

It's a runaway! But even though Liverpool is running away with the EPL title, there are so many compelling story lines and competitions remaining within the EPL table. Chelsea cannot pull away from the mid-table glut, but the big names behind them can't seem to catch the Blues either.

Jose Mourinho couldn't stay positive for long. His comedic one-man show is back on the road in England.

Is Arsenal back under Arteta, or did Man U take a match off? The Christmas rush is over, and now we head into the January transfer window. Who is buying and who is selling?

Two Matchdays in one week!  There were plenty of winners and losers during the heavy Christmas EPL schedule.  Memo and Jay are here to sort it all out.  One thing is clear, Liverpool will be EPL Champions, but the story lines and battles below them have only just begun.

Will Wolverhampton barge their way into the top six EPL high class society dinner parties?  The club looks every bit the part.  Will Arteta and Arsenal find their way back to the top, or will they even lose grasp on Europa League table positions?  Manchester United and Everton made big moves this week, but was it a matter of competition or fortitude?

EPL Weekend, Champions League,and Fantastic Goals

Episode #46

Producer Jay and Host Memo discuss the weekend action in the EPL, and how it all fits within the table and European competitions.

The Manchester Derby was lit.  What is the City weakness this year?  Has Manchester United turned a corner with table climbing ahead?

Leicester City and Liverpool continue their amazing run of winning league matches.  But with a pressure packed Champions League match ahead this week, and Leicester City within shouting distance, is the league title within grasp, or still too early?  The two teams meet on Boxing Day, and a lot can change before that match.

Chelsea snooze and lose.  Or did Everton receive the "temp manager" bump that Arsenal are still waiting for?
