The Force is strong with this one. Sort of. Maybe?
Our predictions are getting back on track this week and points that have no meaning are handed out to our winners. Southampton lost to Palace, which only Arslan didn't see coming. West Ham and Stoke played a glorious nil-nil draw with the Hammers impressing without Payet. Leicester defeated Chelsea in a manner akin to Luke Skywalker's perfect shot to take down the Death Star.
Bournemouth continued their amazing run by taking down a lackluster Manchester United. Spurs lost. Tottenham have been defeated and not by an own goal, by Newcastle.
Last Word on Sports' Hugo Jennings joins us to discuss if Mourinho will strike back or be sacked, England at the Euros, and helps us preview the match up between Arsenal and Manchester City.
Our predictions continue to Everton and Leicester. Is Vardez (no, that's not a typo) strong enough to go against Everton's back line? Can Crystal Palace win on a cold night in Stoke? Have Newcastle actually turned things around? Have they found the balance in the Force? Villa surely haven't.

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 still our birthday week!
In this preview episode, we start with Southampton and Crystal Palace. The Saints have been struggling, while Palace continue to rise.
We continue out predictions with West Ham vs Stoke. Stoke have had some brilliant performances recently, but can that continue? Payet-less West Ham have been at a loss for creativity, but will long balls to Carroll work this time?
We wrap up with league leaders Leicester taking on relegation battling Chelsea. Vardy's miraculous scoring streak has ended, but the Foxes always find goals. The same cannot be said for the Blues, who still haven't bounced back.
We predict the score, man of the match, the big storyline, and the flop for each game. 'Tis the season to be jolly, Leicester are winning the league and it's almost Christmas.

It's the seventh episode of After the Anthem, and Draft season is upon us. The lads preview the Re-Entry draft for all three Canadian teams, and who they should look to pick up during the draft and free agency.
Then it's on to an extended discussion about Canadian soccer. This week Don Garber talked about Canadian roster rules, so the guys discuss how to get Canadians more playing time in Major League Soccer.
Canada's interest in bidding for the 2026 World Cup was also reenforced early this week. The guys debate what a World Cup would mean for Canadian soccer and whether not it is feasible.
Finally, Canada's U-20 women's squad is ripping it up in World Cup qualifiers, but can they get over the final hurdle?

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.

After a long absence the After the Anthem podcast is back with Mitchell Tierney of Waking the Red and Michael Norton of Last Word On Sports.
Since the guys were last on air both the Vancouver Whitecaps and Montreal Impact were eliminated from the Major League Soccer playoffs, so the guys start by breaking down what is next for both of these clubs.
The discussion also centres around roster moves made by both the Vancouver Whitecaps and Toronto FC as the offseason gets underway.
Then it is on to the Canadian men's and women's national teams, who both have qualifiers of their own with multiple storylines.

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.
