Happy St. Totteringham's Day? In what should have been an historic run for Tottenham Hotspur, they still managed to finish below Arsenal on the last day of the season.
Manchester United's season isn't over yet due to a bomb scare that hasn't quite been cleared up. They won't be able to get top four, but they still have the FA Cup to play for.
Newcastle have been relegated, but will they also be out a manager? Everton have said goodbye to Roberto Martinez and who is left out there to replace him? Ronald Koeman?? What sort of managers will we see next season?
The Champions League, Europa League, and FA Cup finals are approaching. How will each team stack up with silverware on the line?
The season's at the end, but we will never run out of premier league stories to discuss.
March 3rd, 2016
four days of premier league action, there are a lot of stories to talk about.
With all these games, you'd think there'd be a little shakeup at the top
of the table, but Leicester still sit at the peak.
Manchester City have
won the Capital One Cup with a surprising hero in Willy Caballero. It wasn't
the best cup final, but Liverpool's comeback to spend it to extra time and
penalties was rousing.
The other side of
Manchester put out a line-up of misfit toys against Arsenal earlier Sunday, and
those misfits played beautiful soccer. Their performance was so brilliant
even Louis Van Gaal himself got out of his seat and fell to the floor.
Dan Riccio from
Toronto radio Sportsnet Fan590 joins us to talk about some big questions
including, but not limited to, where is the leadership at Arsenal and who is
going to win the league? Does Arsene Wenger have what it takes to push this
club to the next level?
In MLS, D.C. United
players had their phones and some cash stolen after a CONCACAF Champions League
game. This begs the question, which footballers phone would you steal?
Looking ahead, the
games look good this weekend. The North London Derby is happening and
will Spurs bounce back from their recent defeat? Will Arsenal bounce back from
their recent strings of defeat? Is Watford going to be an easy win for league
leading Leicester City? Which Newcastle is going to show up against
Bournemouth? Can Stoke repeat their last performance against Chelsea?

Is LVG a mad man that can't be touched?
Is the Valencia an opportunity or a set to far for Gary Neville one week on?
Is Lionel Messi overrated or underrated?
Do tiny little Bournemouth deserved to a little bit more respect?!
All those questions answered and much more in another top notch episode of the best football podcast with the worst football jingles..... GREAT TOUCH FOR A BIG LAD!!!

It's our 1 year anniversary as a podcast! Happy Birthday to us!
It seems our predictions have no been exactly on point lately, but we're having enough fun without accurate numbers. This week we back a somehow forgot feature, the flop of the match.
West Ham and United played to a 0-0 draw, shocking. There are problems to fix with United, but what are they? What could help?
The Chelsea-Bournemouth game "slipped" from our radar last week, but it was so great we have to talk about it. Can Chelsea still make a top four bid?
Arsenal played Sunderland and ran circles around Yedlin. Giroud more than made up for a mistake. Will Arsenal be okay with their injuries?
Liverpool lost to Newcastle. What went wrong for LFC? Is this the win Newcastle needed?
Stoke thrashed Manchester City at home in a convincing display. How consistent are City? Can Stoke continue to win?
Aston Villa are gunning for a title. The title of worst premier league season. How has this happened? What is Remi Garde doing?
How great are Watford? Will their duo up top draw attention from buyers?
How long does Gary Monk have at Swansea? What needs to be done? We've seen the talent they have, but something is wrong there. Who would replace Monk if he were to be sacked?
All of this and more on a very special one year anniversary episode of Treble Radio.
December 2nd, 2015
Jamie Vardy set a record! During an otherwise uneventful game. Manchester United are still not playing exciting attacking soccer and it's getting a little old to everyone.
Chelsea and Spurs played to a draw, but which team dropped points? What is up with Diego Costa? Can Chelsea get out of the relegation battle?
Manchester City have learned to play against a press, or at least Southampton's press. Aguero is injured but not for long, how will City fair without him?
This week we preview United and West Ham, chat a little bit about Chelsea and Bournemouth, and also Arsenal v Yedlin...or... Sunderland.
November 30th, 2015
In this weeks show we react to the Vardy party whilst also considering the thought, is all the Vardy chit-chat is getting a little old now?. We reveal our nominations and winner of the Ballon D’poor, the competition FIFA regrets not signing up to, where we look at the biggest under performers from the last year. The award no player wants. All that plus the usual selection of insight yet comical features. Football nonsense at its finest.
November 23rd, 2015
In this weeks podcast we discuss the latest footballing fad
the ‘Liverpool Tottenham high pressing game’. Craig takes a trip to the
confession booth and a stat from the Bundesliga that will BLOW YOUR MIND. All
this plus our usual array of features plus
news on a dominos pizza emergency button. Football nonsense at its finest.

This premier league weekend had storylines for days. Can Joe Mourinho feel the Earth beneath his feet? He was missing from the Stoke City match but we all know he'd rather not talk about his defeat and humiliation with the press anyway. We talked about this last week, but there continue to be issues for Chelsea.
Leicester won again. Vardy scored again. This time, they didn't even go 2-0 down first. Is this progress for the Foxes? How good is Jamie Vardy?
Brad Guzan's face saved the day for Remi Garde and Villa as they earned a point against league leaders Manchester City. Are all hopes of City winning the league crushed due to injuries?
Newcastle stole points off a very deserving Bournemouth team, despite their own injury struggles.
How alone is Jurgen Klopp? Palace showed up and took all three points as Liverpool fans deserted their seats.
The North London Derby ended in a draw. Is Ozil Arsenal's problem? Spurs seemed dominate but were unable to walk away with all three points somehow.
We also tackle a little Manchester City/MLS news with Patrick Viera moving to New York City FC. Mistake or brilliance?
This week is international break, and instead of being silly and trying to predict games two weeks in advance, we'll have another show next week for previews.
November 10th, 2015
The show starts this week with a nod to the nice guys. As Ronaldo emerged as the most "liked" footballer on Facebook following the release of his film, the boys pick out and discuss the game's real good eggs.
Next, Allcott revels in Chelsea's woes in roundup of the weekend, whilst Irwin hits back, defends Chelsea, and promises a backlash from the boys in blue.
Ever thought of something that would make the game better for you? "Footballing inventions" was next up on the show with a brainstorm of (now patented) gadgets that will revolutionise the game. A machine that holds your drink when you celebrate and decision making robots are coming soon to a stadium near you.
Craig's question talks about favourite types of goal, whilst offside touches on banned substances and something we never want to see in the game, mashed potato.
All this, Irwin ranting on pet hates, and much more on this week's GT4ABL. Follow us on Twitter for more content.

We talked so much last time we ran out of time for previews...again. Everton are up against West Ham, Bournemouth and Newcastle meet up in a relegation battle, Liverpool play Crystal Palace, and there's a North London Derby
As usual, we predict the main storyline, man of the match, and the score line of each game.
There was Champions League action this week, whether Eric wants to admit or not. Arsenal might have crossed wires in their fall to Bayern Munich, but Manchester United managed a victory. Chelsea scrapped three points, and City dominated again.
Which fires grow stronger and which are just for looks? Find out on Treble Radio.
