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?

It was a busy weekend in the Premier League. Leicester got back on top alone for a while before Arsenal joined them, continuing their good form.
Chelsea got away with robbery after a late offside goal, sharing a point with Everton.
Liverpool yet again lost points to Manchester United. Did they really deserve the full three points, though?
Further down the table, Swansea successfully battled Watford for a 1-0 result. What's going on at Watford? Will Swansea stay up with the help of their new manager?
January transfer business is in full swing and we take a look at some of the top headlines so far with Mignolet getting an extension at LFC and Charlie Austin coming back to the league with Southampton. And what is going on with Adebayor?
January 14th, 2016
This is the best week of soccer/football. FA Cup, midweek league games, and weekend league games. There's so much but of course we have to begin with Arsenal's draw with Liverpool. Which team really dropped points?
Leicester played Tottenham for the second time in three days. If that was any indication of how their FA Cup replay will be in six days, I'm calling in sick to work (maybe not).
Manchester United played attacking football! Will it continue?
We take a brief look at some of the January transfer business, there hasn't been much, look at some headlines and then head to predictions for the weekend.
This week we look ahead to Chelsea vs Everton, Liverpool vs United, and Swansea vs Watford.
January 11th, 2016
Alec, Matt, and Ty discuss transfers in the MLS offseason, the USMNT's January Camp, and MLS SuperDraft.
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.
