Arslan takes some time off to focus on school this week.. Maybe. Well. But, Nick Morales from Last Word on Sport joins us as a guest host.
There was some pretty obvious controversy at King Power with Leicester and West Ham, not to mention endless storylines. Everton and Southampton provided not so many talking points, except managerial. On one side. Chelsea and Manchester City battled for three regular points that mean nothing in the grand scheme of things, except maybe keeping City in fourth.
Sam Allardyce is the stand out American hero of the weekend as Sunderland start to crawl out of the bottom. Arsenal surprised no one by giving Crystal Palace another point.
Aston Villa is officially relegated and none of the players really care. Big surprise.
We preview Vardy-less Leicester against Swansea, the Merseyside Derby, and Liverpool and Newcastle.
February 17th, 2016
The top of the table met in big games, summer transfer rumors are picking up, and the Premier League title race, as well as the relegation battle, is in full swing.
We start this week's show with out weekend predictions. Leicester v Arsenal didn't exactly go as planned, but why? What went wrong for Leicester? What did Arsenal do right?
Tottenham have been flying below the radar, but can't hide of from the title contention chatter after defeating Manchester City. Mauricio Pochettino is doing everything right with Spurs right now.
Watford bested Crystal Palace in a scrappy match with Troy Deeney shining again. Chelsea destroyed Newcastle. Ripped them apart. DeAndre Yedlin played the full 90 against Manchester United, but how much did he really contribute to the Sunderland win?
We wrap up the show with the latest summer rumors, injury news, and the relegation battle. Who will pull off a great escape? Who should be preparing for next season in the Championship?
February 11th, 2016
There are some apparent ground breaking premier league stories this week, and we dive right into them.
What is up with this Jose Mourinho taking the Manchester United job this summer business? Would this be a good deal or bad deal? Is it really necessary to sack Louis van Gaal?
Pep Guardiola if officially going to Manchester City. We all know that, but what does it mean for City players? Really, how great would a Manchester derby be?
Liverpool and ownership made headlines by freezing ticket prices after a massive fan protest, and they aren't the only club to do so. Ticket prices aside, there are still other problems at the club.
With the league officially dropping the "Barclays," they've unveiled their new logo. Was it necessary? How controversial is it?
Top of the table teams clash this weekend and we start previews with Leicester and Arsenal. Can Leicester increase their lead? Can Tottenham pull a Leicester and rip Man City's defense apart? Just how scrappy will the Crystal Palace and Watford match-up be? The bottom of the table bash of Chelsea and Newcastle rounds out our show this week. Who will come out on top?
February 1st, 2016
Fresh off an FA Cup weekend, we turn our attention forward to the biggest midweek games in the Premier League this week. But first, transfer update. With the transfer deadline approaching, we look at some of the latest signings and try to make sense of West Brom's refusal to sell Saido Berahino. Will any major signings be made on deadline day? We give our opinions on the January transfer window.
Turning our attention and our (limited) predictive powers to actual football, we look at all the storylines as top of the table Leicester looks for revenge against Liverpool.
Next, Chelsea take on Watford. Can Chelsea continue their recent momentum? Will Eden Hazard finally getting a goal be a boost to his season?
We preview Everton vs Newcastle, as Everton slides down the Premier League table and Newcastle tries to claw their way out of the relegation zone. Will Newcastle's winter signings be enough to keep them up?
January 6th, 2016
It's been a long break but we're back! I know, we're excited, too.
We briefly touch on the fixtures we missed while busy with family and such before diving into the big stories.
What exactly is the deal with Tony Pulis and Jurgen Klopp? Should Louis van Gaal be sacked? If so, who replaces him? Do Tottenham make it to the Champions League? Can Leicester make it to the Champions League? What does it take to run a successful team in the long term?
With tons of FA Cup action this weekend, we each picked a game to watch as well as highlighting some other potentially interesting ones.

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?

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.

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.

In this Premier League weekend preview episode, we start with the rumors surrounding MLS coach Peter Vermes. What could he accomplish in Europe?
Then we turn to Tottenham and Chelsea. Can Chelsea do anything against their press? Will Chelsea win two in a row?
Jamie Vardy's chance to set a record comes this weekend when Leicester play Manchester United. Will he do it? Can United actually score? Is Laura cheering for her club (United) or Vardy's?
We end with Manchester City and Southampton. Can the Saints put on a better show this week? Will City bounce back from their defeat last week?
So many questions!
November 24th, 2015
There was a lot of unexpected excitement and a lot of unexpected goals this weekend and we have some unexpected cat.
How did Liverpool dismantle Manchester City? Can City do anything against a press?
Leicester are at the top and each week, they continue to impress. How long will that last? Will Jamie Vardy stop scoring? How much does Laura love Leicester?
What happened to Arsenal? Is Joe Campbell really the answer? Arteta is out for a while but is that really a lose?
Stoke and Southampton were not as exciting as we'd hoped, but Spurs surprised. West Ham are really really missing Payet.
Chelsea actually got three points; is this finally the start of their "mission impossible" to reclaim the title? What is Diego Costa actually doing on the pitch? Anything?
