Now We're Talking Football
Now We're Talking Football
Phil and Anto are joined once again by former Wimbledon, Newcastle and England international defender Warren Barton for another episode that takes a look at all the key stories in football starting with a Chelsea Football Club in the spotlight as they are on the verge of not finishing top four in Europe but may hold some cards to beat a superior Barcelona when all comes to the surface. We also examine the Real Madrid-Bayern Munich return leg to consider whether Jose Mourinho will be less stubborn in his team selection at home with an away goal in the bank. Will Kaka and Gonzalo Higuain feature at the Bernabeu and is the absence of David Villa the continued problem for Barcelona as a level of sloppiness continues to rear its head for the defending Champions League title holder. We also look at the chase for fourth in the Premier League and how the failures in the EPL will finally force Chelsea to make some moves in refreshing the squad and why this transition really did fail for Andre Villas-Boas given how it has been the veterans who have circled the wagons for Roberto Di Matteo. We also examine the run out of Arsenal without Mikel Arteta and how the last three games will be a quite precarious affair. We also gauge whether managers today are being too cautious with young players when they have the skills to compete at the highest levels. Then we close on the matter of the diving and simulation talking point that continues to be a problem in the biggest matches no matter where they are played and whether it is now time to address this situation more formally for fines and suspensions in the future. Loads here on the Champions League, the top four here in the EPL and Vaishali Bhardwaj also makes her return with world football updates in this episode.
