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.

A lot has been happening this Premier League transfer window. We start this show with a roundup of our predictions for last weekends games.
Exactly how many things did Arsenal do wrong against Chelsea? Did Stoke blow it or is Leicester back? How great/not so great are we at these predictions?
We spend more time on major and not major news stories.
How good of a signing is Pato for Chelsea? What about Matt Miazga? Did Jose Mourinho really right a six page letter to Manchester United?
What are the benefits (if any) of Tim Howard joining the Colorado Rapids? Alex Teixeira to Liverpool? Andros Townsend to Newcastle?
How are league leading Leicester doing this window? What does this mean for their future?
Is Kevin de Bruyne's injury devastating for Manchester City? How about Jan Vertonghen's for Tottenham?
Dele Alli is shining, but how bright will he get? How have Spurs done with signings and what does the future hold for them?
We wrap up with our games to watch this FA Cup weekend.

We talked so much this week that we have a separate Premier League preview show special!
We start off with Manchester United playing Southampton. Once again the big question is which Man United team will show up? Will they be the exciting attacking United or the sit back and defend United?
Leicester play Stoke, who are so hot right now. Can Leicester step their game back up? Will they, like the other top teams before them, drop points to Stoke?
Reluctantly, West Ham and Manchester City are next. City are either fantastic or crap, but the Hammers have Payet back in form and are a force to be reckoned with. Which side, if either, will come out on top?
Arsenal are sitting on the top on goal difference and playing defending champions Chelsea this weekend. Chelsea have momentum since Mourinho's sacking, but do they have enough to get a point, or points, from Arsenal?
We round out this show with the Sunderland and Bournemouth relegation battle-ish. Will Bournemouth's new signings shine or will Sunderland start trying to pull off a great escape?

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!!!

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 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.

The international break is over which means the Premier League is back and so are we! Treble Radio opens with a new topic, as Eric and Laura vent their frustrations over the U.S drawing 0-0 at Trinidad & Tobago before we launch into our Premier League preview show.
With really only one big game this weekend, we do our best to make all the games sound interesting.
Liverpool visit Manchester City as the tough schedule continues for Klopp's new side. How bad will the absence of Mamadou Sakho hurt Liverpool, and is Dejan Lovren a capable replacement? On the Manchester City side, will Aguero be healthy enough to play, and if not, who plays striker?
A few years ago Southampton vs Stoke would've been a game of contrasting styles. Now though, Mark Hughes has Stoke playing actual football, with passing and dribbling and everything. What are the keys to this game, and who comes out ahead?
At White Hart Lane, can West Ham overcome the absencese of Dimitri Payet and Enner Valencia, or will Spurs run of good form continue? Dele Alli scored a goal for England, so obviously he's the greatest and West Ham don't stand a chance, right?
To cap it all off, this week's show includes a special guest appearance by Laura's cat.

The show this week starts with the great news of Allcott's newly acquired dream job at Ball Street. In true Great Touch fashion this prompted the first talking point of the poddy: what would your ideal job be? The vocation choices unsurprisingly started with football, moved on to food, then inevitably ended back on football.
Allcott popped into confession to pay homage to a hero of the Emerald Isle and the potteries (clue: It's not Glenn Whelan), but will he apologise for previously slating him?
Then, discussion turned to zeros to heros. Which players did the lads once hate, but now love? Following that, in an imaginative twist, they discussed heros who are now zeros with a couple of the boys even putting rivalry out the window.
All this, plus a preview of the weekend, footballing pet hates, and monkeys racing cats on Great Touch for a Big Lad!

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.
