We ask what more schools, the FA, and professional clubs could be doing, as well as celebrate some of the schemes which are already out there.  Plus we get excited for the Women's World Cup!  For more information, here are some links: Girls, Inspired (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/school-sport/2019/04/02/telegraphs-girls-inspired-campaign-explained/) Goals4Girls (https://goals4girls.co.uk/) Learn more about your ad choices.

The Offside Rule 2016/7 - Episode 21 - End of Season Special with Jim White

Summary Sky Sports stalwart and King of Deadline Day Jim White joins Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper on The Offside Rule (We Get It!) end of season special. Jim gives us his thoughts on Wenger's 2-year contract extension, Pep and Mourinho before we get into our season round-up. It's been an interesting, intriguing, and downright bonkers season across the board, with stories we'll remember for years to come. We give you our favourite stories of the season, and the ones you might have missed; from managerial surprises to unhappy star players. Arsene Wenger vindicated himself by winning the FA Cup this season and has been rewarded with the aforementioned contract extension. We look at some of the best managerial "I told you so!" moments, including one of the best managers of our time after his rocky start at Manchester United. Finally, we get a bit more nostalgic and look at our finest moments in football both as journalists and as fans; who put Jim through 90 minutes of torture, and which world-beating ex-player did Jim leave in a Scotland nightclub? Tune in to hear more tales from Jim, Kait and Lynsey, and to see out the season in style.

The Offside Rule 2016/7 - Episode 20

The terrific trio of Hayley McQueen, Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper are back together to see off the end of the season on The Offside Rule (We Get It!) episode 20. We all had a chuckle when Barnsley accidentally submitted a bid for St Mirran's Stevie Mallan to a St Mirran fan site. But it's not the only 'oops' communication moment we've had in football. Which player's transfer was scuppered by a failed internet connection? And who has forever been immortalised by the words "can you tweet something like"...? It's that time where we start reflecting on a whirlwind season, so we recount some of the best and worst moments, including the shock sacking of the season, the double-edged sword of North East football and one of the best moments of Pep Guardiola's life...apparently. Finally, we were browsing Mumsnet recently (bear with us...) and found that some Mumsnet posters don't understand why relegation reduces fans to a sobbing mess. We think it's perfectly normal, but not everyone reacts in the same way. We look at some of the best relegation reactions - including the study that proves how traumatic your team's relegation really is!

The Offside Rule 2016/7 - Episode 19

Lynsey Hooper is back to front episode 19 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!) with Kait Borsay and Hayley McQueen. As the football season quickly reaches its conclusion, there's plenty of teams with nothing left to play for; they've already been relegated, promoted, or have just reached that 40 point milestone. We look at the teams coasting to the finale, including the Midlands side who've lost 4 in a row and broken a club record for not scoring! The players who certainly aren't on the beach are the women's footballers, who are gearing up for Euro 2017 and a new FAWSL season; Sue Smith is back on the pod to give us some FAWSL insight. Everyone, including Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, was gobsmacked to see Emre Can's fantastic bicycle kick goal. What other moments in football have made us do a double take? Finally, everyone and their granny was talking about Anthony Joshua's heavyweight triumph in this weekend's boxing, and it got us thinking about heavyweight football clubs across Europe. And just for fun, we look at the footballers who would make good boxers - including an actual footballer-turned-boxer, and a player who grew up boxing and could return to it if his career ends unexpectedly early...

The Offside Rule 2016/7 - Episode 18

Hayley McQueen and Kait Borsay are back to bring you The Offside Rule (We Get It!) in episode 18 of the award-winning podcast. Survival specialist Harry Redknapp has been appointed as Birmingham City's new manager, and while the jokes are plentiful, you can't deny his credentials when it comes to relegation battles. He's not the only one; we look at some of the savviest bottom-of-the-league battlers, both old and new. It's a great time to be a seasider as Brighton, Plymouth and Portsmouth all confirmed their respective promotions this weekend. All three clubs have battled against the odds, so we look at their journeys up the football leagues and beyond. This season's Champions League has thrust some young European stars into the spotlight, like Dybala and Mbappe. We look at some of Europe's best and brightest young talent - with Chelsea scouting some of these names, could any of them be coming to the Premier League? It wouldn't be The Offside Rule without a little tongue-in-cheek; and this time it comes from our brilliant listeners. We asked you guys what Chelsea stalwart John Terry's next move should be and the answers range from the bonkers to the believable. Tune in to hear some of the best...

The Offside Rule 2016/7 - Episode 17. Incl England Women Interviews

Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper are back to present episode 17 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!). We give our thoughts on David Moyes' now infamous "you might get a slap, even though you're a woman" comment to reporter Vicki Sparks. Moyes is not the only manager to say or do something they regretted when under pressure. Which ex-Arsenal defender resigned after punching a fan? And which two managers overused the C bomb? The England Women's squad for Euro 2017 has been announced, and there's some players conspicuous by their absence. We look at new inclusions, big exclusions, and grab a chat with England stars Laura Bassett, Jodie Taylor and Izzy Christiansen. Finally, we've all seen the Cristiano Ronaldo statue, with some saying it looks more like Niall Quinn than the Portugese superstar - poor Niall. But is it the worst one we've seen? Is it even the worst Cristiano Ronaldo statue we've seen? Tune in to the podcast and our Twitter feed to find out.

The Offside Rule 2016/7 - Episode 16

It's triple trouble on episode 16 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!) as Kait Borsay returns to join Hayley McQueen and Lynsey Hooper. We're nearing the final stretch of the Premier League season, with 9 or 10 games left for most teams. It's crunch time, when some teams put together an astonishing end-of-the-season run or crumble under the pressure. With relegation and European football at stake, we look at some of the sides that need to put in a good run and predict the final relegation candidates. Offside Rule and Lynsey Hooper favourite Mick McCarthy celebrated 25 years in football management this weekend, so who else has been in it for the long haul? We look at some long term managers and their career highs and lows, including an English football stalwart who's managed too many clubs to count! Pep Guardiola said Manchester City's draw against Liverpool was "one of the most special days of his life", to which Jurgen Klopp replied "he's Spanish, they're more emotional than Germans!" with a laugh. What other funny, cheeky or downright rude things have managers said about each other? Hint: Jose Mourinho features heavily in this topic!

The Offside Rule 2016/7 - Episode 15

Hayley McQueen returns to join Lynsey Hooper on episode 15 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!). Recent footage has emerged of Mats Hummels spilling coffee down himself as he was boarding the Bayern Munich team bus - much to Thomas Müller's delight. But it's not the silliest footballing injury we've ever seen so we take you through some of the most outlandish - involving babies, tricycles and a moose! As we've recorded on International Women's Day we had to dedicate a topic to it; there#s still work to be come when it comes to women in football, so we look at some of the women currently blazing the trail for us. Finally, an international break is upon us and all eyes will be on recently-appointed Gareth Southgate - can he make the step up from the U21s and deliver? But he's not the newest manager on the international scene. We take a look at some other newly-appointed managers, including former Everton manager Roberto Martinez, and see how they've performed so far.

The Offside Rule 2016/7 - Episode 14

It's double trouble as Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper front episode 14 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!). We all know about the magic of the FA Cup and this season is no different, with Lincoln City the first non-league side to reach the quarter finals in over 100 years. We reminisce about our favourite ever FA Cup moments, including the one that got Lynsey hooked on working in football. News has emerged that Red Bull is looking to buy a club in Hungary after its success with New York Red Bulls and RB Leipzig, while newly-formed Minnesota United set to enter the MLS. But how successful have recently-created clubs been; are they all title challengers like RB Leipzig? We look at how some brand-new and rebranded sides have done in recent years. Football is wonderfully diverse and filled with many languages and nationalities. Roman Pavlyuchenko communicated in noises when he first arrived at Spurs, which shows there's sometimes a translation problem. We look at the funniest language mix-ups - which ex-England striker accidentally proclaimed he'd like to sleep with Frank Lampard?!

The Offside Rule 2016/7 - Episode 13

The January transfer window is finally over, and Kait Borsay, Lynsey Hooper and Hayley McQueen are back to bring you a post-window episode of The Offside Rule (We Get It!). We all know January produces some flop signings, but what about the ones who flopped so bad they left almost immediately? Who got sacked and who was sold on at a tidy profit? The Premier League relegation battle is incredibly tight, with 6 teams running the risk of going down. We look at why Sunderland, Crystal Palace, Swansea, Hull, Leicester and 'Boro could survive or fall; which new manager is a man with a plan, and which team needs a visit from a psychologist? After Jose Mourinho stormed off mid-TV interview following a draw to Hull, we got thinking about our own snubs - and we've experienced a few!

The Offside Rule 2016/7 - Episode 12 TRANSFER TRUMP

The new year is in full swing and Kait Borsay, Lynsey Hooper and Hayley McQueen are back for episode 12 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!). We couldn't have a late-January podcast without mentioning the January transfer window - who hasn't been snapped up yet? We give you our top transfer tips, and a little bit of advice for teams still looking to buy. The Women's Super League will soon run in tandem with the Premier League, so we turn our attention to some of the standout newbies in the WSL - and one familiar returning face! We couldn't do this podcast without mentioning Donald Trump's inauguration but we've of course put our own little spin on it. We've improved on Trump's slogan 'Make America Great Again' - let's Make Football Great Again, complete with pledges for the national game, blatant lies (or "alternative facts"...) and a reworked Trump speech! 30 minutes of listening pleasure, brought to you by Offside Productions.

We catch up on the festive footy and reveal the results of our December predictions - which of our trio got every darn thing right? It's 2017 and the diet plans are already on hold.. time to talk Chinese takeaways. With the mega-nation seemingly wanting to buy everything in English football, what else can we offload to them for the right price? 30 minutes of listening pleasure, brought to you by Offside Productions.

It's a special episode of The Offside Rule (We Get It!) this week, as the trio of Lynsey Hooper, Kait Borsay and Hayley McQueen is back together! We're getting in the spirit of Christmas (sort of) by looking at Santa's sack race. No, it's not about the presents he's bringing, but rather a P45...who do we think will be the first manager to receive this lump of coal in their stocking? Bob Bradley and Alan Pardew naturally crop up, but what about the outsider who isn't fitting in to his new club? Now, it’s annoying when friends show you up by sending Christmas cards at the beginning of December isn’t it? What about when footballers or teams do the same - which team topped their table before crashing down to 6th? And which fans got ahead of themselves with a play-off pitch invasion? We've seen some dramatics recently - including big comebacks for Bournemouth and Swansea against Liverpool and Crystal Palace respectively - so we look at some of the best comebacks and on-pitch dramatics in recent years...are their any teams who've been involved more than others?

Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper are back to bring you another dose of football madness on The Offside Rule (We Get It!). We're fast approaching the hectic Christmas period, and league tables are starting to shape up nicely. However, there's some teams that are in less-than-desirable positions, but what's happened to them? Which manager do we think is focusing on completing his bucket list before retirement? We grab title-winning Jill Scott of Manchester City Ladies for some quick fire questions. And speaking of interviews, it looks like Gareth Southgate is the only candidate for the England job, so surely nothing could go wrong...right? We give you some of the best managerial interview flops over the years, including a headline-grabber who was foiled by his love of PowerPoints!

Kait Borsay and Hayley McQueen are back to bring you an extra football fix during this international break, on The Offside Rule (We Get It!). The mannequin challenge is taking over social media but there's no standing still in the Premier League, with an already fierce battle amongst the top teams. We look at the top four: what are they doing well, and what could trip them up, and importantly, who do we think will walk away with the title? We catch up with some of Manchester City Women's title winning players and get them to spill the secrets to their success. During the international break, we see plenty of Premier League stars in action for their international sides, but it's rarer to see English players giving it a go abroad. We look at some of the most successful Brits abroad...and some flops!

Lynsey Hooper, Kait Borsay and Hayley McQueen are back to give you an extra football fix during the international break, on The Offside Rule (We Get It!). England has been in the news but for once, not for the shoddy football - the country's jaw dropped when Big Sam lost his job as part of a huge expose. Gareth Southgate is performing admirably so far, but problems run much deep for underperforming England than the managerial situation. So, how do you solve a problem like England? We explore the team's weak points, including mentality and form, and how we can address them. Continuing with the international theme, we've watched a lot of world football in the last week and seen some unlikely names feature. China is becoming an end-of-career payday for Premier League stars, but in which other unexpected leagues have we seen some big names? Finally, Bob Bradley made history this week as the first American to manage in the Premier League, a league that is no stranger to American exports. We look at some of the biggest football trailblazers from the USA, including a World Cup winner and a plethora of goalkeepers!

It's another Offside Rule first as we recorded the podcast LIVE from Soccerex! But if you couldn't tune in live fear not, you can still listen to us chat about the important things, like footballers in strange places...where have we unexpectedly bumped into a player? Who encountered David Beckham, hungover and red-faced? We also look at the players managers can't live without...even if they'd never admit it. Which Premier League flop has resurrected his career and became invaluable to his French side? Finally, we give you some of our 'I almost lost it when...' moments, and read out some of your best tweets.

Marcus Rashford looks to be a key player for Manchester United this season, but it might be from the bench. We know the value of squad players who might not start every game but can't be underestimated, so we give you some of our current greatest super squad players. Now that we've had time to digest this summer's transfer window activities, it's time to have a good look at some of the unknown names that have arrived into the Premier League. Finally, much ado has been made about the near-100 changes to the football rulebook over the summer, so we look at some of the best and silliest new rules...

Eden Hazard has found form again after an anonymous 2015/16 season...but who else has gone missing after having a blinder? This year's transfer window has thrown up some memorable deals like Ibrahimovic to Manchester United, Kante to Chelsea and Perez to Arsenal, but what about the action that's gone under the radar?

Football reporter Gigi Salmon joins Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper to front episode 39 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. The final automatic promotion places were confirmed across the Football League at the weekend, so we give you our ones to watch for next season; who's likely to make an impact in their new league? It wasn't easy sailing across Europe, however; PSV Eindhoven won Eredivisie on a dramatic final day, and Barcelona have the advantage in a tight battle for the La Liga title. We take you through some of the most dramatic season wind downs across the continent. Leicester City finally had their title-winning party - but was it all that was expected? We give you some of our highlights from the celebrations - including speedos and pizza costumes - and tell you what we'd have done differently if we were Leicester's party planner...

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 38

Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper are having their very own Vardy party on this week's The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Leicester City have finally wrapped up the Premier League and we've seldom seen the country unite over one team like it. The #VardyParty became a reality and although we may not have got an invite to the real thing, we dish out some invitations of our own. As the season charges towards the final day, a number of teams have already secured promotion - but so often the thing that lets newly promoted sides down is a lack of depth in the squad. We play deity and give them the gift of a player past. There's still promotion places to play for, and relegation places to avoid, however, so we thought it'd be fun to play snakes and ladders; who will climb up the leagues and who'll slide down a league via a slippery snake? Sue Smith is also back to give us a women's football update.

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 37

It's the usual suspects on this week's The Offside Rule (We Get It!), as Lynsey Hooper, Kait Borsay and Hayley McQueen front the award-winning podcast, brought to you by Continental Tyres. The winners of the PFA Awards have been announced, with Riyad Mahrez, Dele Alli, Izzy Christiansen and Beth Mead triumphing. This set of winners could be considered rising stars in England, so we delve into the history books to find the biggest successes and flops following a PFA Young Player of the Year Award win. It's super tight at the top of the Championship, with 3 sides sitting on 83 points having played 44 games each. It could go any way unlike the Premier League, so we look at some of the tightest title races around Europe. We've all cringed at Randy Lerner's Aston Villa-inspired poetry, but is it the weirdest thing to come out of a chairman's mouth? From threatening pitch invaders with a crocodile-infested moat and jailing referees, we've managed to find some even sillier comments! As if that's not enough, it's welcome back to Doncaster Belles' Sue Smith and her women's football update.

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 36

Hayley McQueen returns to host The Offside Rule (We Get It!) alongside Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper in episode 36 of the award-winning podcast, brought to you by Continental Tyres. The PFA Award nominees have been announced, and there's some players noticeable only by their absence, like 21-goal striker Sergio Aguero. We look at the shortlists and give you our winner for each category. Newcastle United finally won their first game under new manager Rafa Benitez, a welcome result on his 56th birthday. We look at some other players and managers that got an extra birthday treat in the form of a winning result for their team. Some have suggested that Claudio Ranieri should be knighted if his Leicester City side win the league, and it's hard to argue the case against it. We put on our crowns, grab our sceptres and dish out some knighthoods of our own!

Sport Magazine editor and author of 'Kicking Off: How Women in Sport Are Changing the Game', Sarah Shephard, is our guest presenter on this week's The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Leicester City are 5 games away from doing the unthinkable and winning the Premier League; the side currently sit 7 points clear at the top of the tables. Having narrowly avoided relegation last season it's a real-life fairytale, so we reminisce and look at some of our other favourite sides that unexpectedly found themselves in dreamland? Their manager Claudio Ranieri got a little misty-eyed this weekend as his side inched closer to the league title; it's not often we see a manager reach for his hanky, so we give you some of our best examples. Finally, Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez has said the players he's inherited have a serious mental problem when it comes to away matches. We play psychiatrist and come up with the solutions to Newcastle's away game curse. From voodoo to squirting the players, we've got all of the answers!

Hayley McQueen rejoins Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper to present episode 34 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Aston Villa have parted ways with Remi Garde, with many conceding he wasn't a good fit for the club. But have there been any managers who've defied expectations and brought success to their club? We give We all know how money-oriented football is, which is why it's so refreshing for many to see Leicester City at the top of the Premier League. But is there anything money can't buy? Christian Fuchs has been up to his old prankster tricks again with his Leicester City teammates; is he amongst the best pranksters in football? We look at some legendary mischief makers in football...

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 33

It's double trouble on The Offside Rule (We Get It!) as Kate Partridge joins Lynsey Hooper to present the award-winning podcast, brought to you by Continental Tyres. All eyes were on England this week, so naturally they've inspired some of our topics. Breakthrough stars like Dele Alli took centre stage in Saturday's match, but they've dominated the news so we turn our attention to rising stars elsewhere. England beat bitter rivals Germany, arguably memorable for a friendly! We look at some of the biggest matches between rivals around the world. Jaws collectively dropped as Harry Redknapp got back into the managerial game...with Jordan. The rumour mill suggests he went for the money - but who else has taken on an unexpected international job, and is it really all about the money? Which manager wouldn't (or couldn't!) even address his players by name?! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices Learn more about your ad choices.

Ahead of the new FAWSL season, Chelsea Ladies stalwart Eni Aluko joins Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper on The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. The pocket rockets ruled in the Premier League this week as Jermain Defoe, Riyad Mahrez and Leon Britton netted; they may be small in stature but shouldn't be underestimated! We look at some other players who's height doesn't reflect their footballing ability... Roy Hodgson's England's selection has been criticised this week, with many arguing he's overlooked West Ham's English contingent - but is there anyone else he's left out of the squad? We're getting excited about the start of the new FAWSL season, and with lots of new talent set to impress in the league, we look at the close season's best signings.

The original trio are back on The Offside Rule (We Get It!), as Kait Borsay, Lynsey Hooper and Hayley McQueen present episode 31 of the award-winning podcast, brought to you by Continental Tyres. It looks like Roberto Martinez's time at Everton is coming to an end, while Steve McClaren is out of a job. It's time to look at the summer's potential movers and shakers; which Serie A manager could spark a Premier League reshuffle? It was handbags at dawn as Costa and Barry clashed in this weekend's FA Cup tie, with Costa appearing to bite the Everton midfielder. We look at some of the best bust ups in football - including one with actual handbags! New Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez has a release clause in his contract should the magpies still be relegated (because who could imagine Rafa managing in the Championship?), and it got us thinking about some of the silliest clauses in football; from sheep testicles to all-expenses paid trips, we've got it all!

Mina Rzouki rejoins Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper for episode 30 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Rotherham manager Neil Warnock has signed Paddy Kenny for an amazing fifth time - but he's not the only manager to have favourites. We look at other managers who just can't live without certain players - including serial offender Harry Redknapp! As the season continues, a few clubs are finding themselves deeper in trouble; Newcastle United are in crisis with six losses in seven games and speculation around Steve McClaren's future, while Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce said he was going to cry into his wine after his side conceded a late Southampton equaliser. Kait and Lynsey pick out relegation certs from the Premier League, while Mina focuses on the doomed sides across Europe. Finally, in a late ode to Mother's Day, we're going to give some footballing mums some well-deserved praise - including a mum who's dedicated a lot of wall space to her son, and mums who went to great lengths to help their children succeed in the beautiful game.

Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford announced his Premier League debut in style this weekend, scoring twice and setting up a third in their huge win over Arsenal. He's inspired us to look at other youngsters poised to make their Premier League break - we give you our tips for the next big stars... Michael Antonio took inspiration from Homer Simpson, of all people, when celebrating his goal against Sunderland; we've seen many fun and outlandish celebrations, but what have been some of the weirdest inspirations?

It's double trouble this week on The Offside Rule (We Get It!), as Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper present episode 28 of the award-winning podcast, brought to you by Continental Tyres. As Arsenal faced Barcelona this week, many have said the Catalan's current squad is arguably their strongest ever, with an unstoppable front three of Messi, Neymar and Suarez. But is there anyone from past squads that would make it into this current one? We bring back some of Barcelona's greats - and there were plenty to choose from! England manager Mark Sampson has announced the squad will be going to the SheBelieves Cup, where Farah Williams and Eni Aluko could reach landmark caps of 150 and 100 respectively. But who in men and women's football have a surprising number of caps? Are there any surprise international stalwarts? Who started their international career at the ripe age of 33? Poor Edin Dzeko hasn't had a great time of it since leaving the Premier League, with his miss this weekend dubbed "miss of the century" - but was it really? We bring you the misses to rival this one, including one that might have cost a Premier League side their first title in years...

In light of Valentines Day (wasn't that a great day of football?), we look at some of the best love-ins in football - and some let downs too! This weekend was one of the biggest in the title chase and fight for the top four, so we revisit our crystal balls and give our current top four predictions. Serial rent-a-gob Vincent Tan has out-done himself, and tried to encourage his Cardiff City side to score more goals...by telling them to act like ugly men with beautiful wives!

Leicester City are finally the bookie's favourites to win the Premier League, after a convincing win over all-star Manchester City. We pay homage to the surprise Premier League leaders by giving you some of our best Leicester City facts; where would they be without Jamie Vardy's goal? Much has been made of the Leicester City fan who bet £5 on his team winning the league...at odds of 5000/1; he could leave bookies red-faced, but has this ever happened before?

Ali Bender guest stars alongside Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper for the latest episode of The Offside Rule (We Get It!), As the transfer window drew to a close on Monday, we give it one last review and look at phantom transfers - the ones that were tipped to happen but didn't make it over the line. Did any side have a lucky escape rather than losing out? The FA Cup 5th round draw was made on Sunday, but we're not very happy with it and decide to do a bit of tinkering. We give some sides a second chance after they've suffered bad luck or just to give them a little morale boost - including a local Middlesbrough side that suffered a heavy defeat... It's hard to imagine football without social media, so it's not totally surprising to hear that Skype have teamed up with Liverpool, and you can now download an emoji of everyone's favourite manager, Jurgen Klopp! We look at some of the craziest football moments on social media, from an unfortunate fan's name spelled backwards, to a player missing out on playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world.

The Champions League returns soon and the competition is heating up ahead of the knock-out rounds. We get out our crystal balls and pick our competition winners - and those we don't think stand a chance! Injury woes are plaguing teams across the Premier League; so much so that we can make a top XI out of them - so that's exactly what we do! Now, everyone remembers the time Phil Brown marched his Hull City players into the centre of the pitch at half time to give them a good telling off...and he's been at it again. His Southend side lost 4-2 to Swindon so as punishment he locked his players in the dressing room for 2 hours! This inspired us to think about the lengths other managers have gone to in order to turn things around...from banning WAGs to soaking cheese in alcohol, we look at the wacky actions managers have taken.

The wind?! As Christmas creeps closer we're feeling festive, so we bring you The Offside Rule Advent Calendar, with treats, players and statistics behind each door. We've all heard of parents naming their children after their favourite footballers, but this week a zoo has named three baby pumas after Barcelona's strikeforce - Messi, Neymar and Suarez.

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 17

Lynsey Hooper rejoins Kait Borsay and Mina Rzouki for this week's The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Rio Ferdinand has launched a stinging attack on the quality of English football, as England's 4th place in the Champions League could be lost - but are we really that bad? There have been some standout teams this season, so we give them an end-of-term report card in time for the Christmas break. Diego Costa seems to have had a strop after being an unused sub at the weekend, throwing his bib at manager Mourinho; this got us thinking about some of the best bust-ups in football - who said their former manager was a coward, and why were there fisticuffs at Fiorentina? Here at The Offside Rule, we're big fans of WhatsApp, and we're not the only ones - Luis Suarez uses it to pick up an injured Leo Messi from training, and to motivate his teammates! We have a stab at some of the WhatsApp groups around including footballers - there's teasing, moaning and moral support groups!

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 16

Kait Borsay, Hayley McQueen and Mina Rzouki are back to present the award-winning Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Hot off the heels of our Best Football Podcast award at the Football Blogging Awards, we're bringing you the fun football content you know and love. While Kait was in Manchester picking up our award, some of The Offside Rule team were at an Opta quiz, which came with some challenging questions and interesting trivia - certainly one for the stats aficionados! We bring you some of the best bits of trivia from this season - they could come in handy for a future pub quiz! With Jamie Vardy's record-equalling goal at the weekend there's talk of a new golden boot recipient - can Vardy keep it up or will one of the usual suspects like Sergio Aguero swoop in? It's been a dramatic week around Europe, as the Athens derby was cancelled following riots and fireworks from fans, while in Belgium a player relieved himself on the pitch - we look at other weird and wacky reasons for cancelled or delayed football matches - including a mafia granddad!

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 15

Mina Rzouki is back to join Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper on The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. We're playing Mystic Meg (again!) and telling the four-tunes of the top 4 sides - now that we've seen Chelsea struggle, who could swoop in and steal their place? Here at The Offside Rule, we love a story about a footballer running another business, and we've recently discovered Mathieu Flamini is a secret entrepreneur - his business, GF Biochemicals, could be worth a whopping £20billion. We think he should use it to buy Arsenal, and we look at previous players who've bought clubs to gauge if it would be a successful venture... We think more players should take note from Tammy Abraham and Patrick Roberts to solve an on-pitch dispute - the England under-19 stars played rock, paper, scissors to decide who would take a penalty in their game against Japan. Who else has came up with an inventive idea to solve an on-the-pitch dispute? It seems referees have a lot to answer for...

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 14

Hayley McQueen, Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper are back for a good old football natter on The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. It's still early days in the season but with Chelsea floundering and the likes of Leicester City flying in the league, we could be looking at some new sides representing England in Europe next season. We look back at some of the most unlikely European successes in recent years, including a team who've changed their name 17 times! In light of Lynsey's house move, we play Renovation Nation with Roy Hodgson's Euro 2016 squad; who would we bring in and who'd get dropped? Finally we go back to the podcast's roots; The Offside Rule (We Get It!) came about following an infamous incident caught off-air between two well-known pundits. We think it's time to get rid of some of the punditing deadwood again and bring in some fresh faces!

The Offside Rule 15/16 - Continental Tyres Cup Special

Lynsey Hooper rejoins Kait Borsay to bring you a special episode of The Offside Rule (We Get It!) recorded straight after the Continental Tyres Cup final, where Arsenal Ladies ran out victorious. We dissect the game and grab Player of the Match Jordan Nobbs for a post-match chat, where she tells us about her topsy-turvy season and trophy joy. We also interview Arsenal teammate Leah Williamson and Notts County Ladies' goalkeeper Carly Telford to get their thoughts on the game. It's been a great competition and we look at the standout players of the tournament. We seldom see a cup final without some drama, and this one was no different as Notts County captain Laura Bassett saw red. We look at some of the most dramatic cup finals, in both the women's and the men's games, over the years.

The Offside Rule 2015/6 Episode 12

It's double trouble this week on The Offside Rule (We Get It!), as Hayley McQueen and Kait Borsay team up for episode 12 of the podcast, brought to you by Continental Tyres. October has been a month of managerial dismissals, with eight leaving their jobs in the top four English leagues, including the high profile Premier League departures of Tim Sherwood, Dick Advocaat and Brendan Rodgers. A number of other managers are teetering on the edge, so we look at who might depart in the month of November. FIFA's presidential candidates have been announced, with a notable lack of women and ex-players; but who would we like to see running the world football governing body? Carlo Ancelotti is making the most of his sabbatical from football, and has only gone and got a cameo in next year's Star Trek movie! Will we be hearing "beam me up Ancelotti?" The news got us thinking about footballer cameos on the big and small screen; which Premier League footballer nearly had his own Sky talk show, and who's going to be in the upcoming Entourage film? Finally in the spooky spirit, we give your our best Halloween XI...

Lynsey Hooper and Kait Borsay are joined once again by podcast regular Mina Rzouki for episode 11 of The Offside Rule Podcast (We Get It!) 2015-16, brought to you by Continental Tyres. Cristiano Ronaldo finally surpassed Raul's goal tally to become Real Madrid's all-time top scorer; it was a hard record to beat, so we look at football record holders around the world that won't be beaten any time soon. It was a sombre affair at Everton this week, as legendary manager Howard Kendall sadly passed away. The club's reminiscing got us thinking about some other greats that the modern game is missing and who we'd bring back. Finally we get lyrical after this month's National Poetry day, and write a short poem about how we feel about each of our clubs...

Lynsey Hooper and Kait Borsay are joined once again by podcast regular Mina Rzouki for episode 10 of The Offside Rule Podcast (We Get It!) 2015-16, brought to you by Continental Tyres. 10 is the magic number for more than one reason, as England won all 10 of their Euro 2016 qualifiers. Now, the qualifiers are done and dusted, so we're going to talk home nations, play-offs, the tournament favourite and our dark horse. Northern Ireland captain fittingly Steven Davis scored a brace against Greece to send the team to their first major finals in 30 years, so we look at some of the best current captains. Sue Smith joins us for a round up on the Continental Cup and some good news from the Doncaster Belles. Finally, it seems the whole country is excited by the arrival of the captivating Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 9

Lynsey Hooper and Kait Borsay are reunited with Hayley McQueen for podcast 9 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Everyone's gossiping about Chelsea's poorest start to a season in 37 years, with Jose Mourinho adamant he's still The Special One. Chelsea have publicly backed their manager, which got us thinking about other big name managers who've struggled, but turned things around with the backing of the club owners. It's not all doom and gloom for Chelsea fans, as Chelsea Ladies clinched the FAWSL 1 title this weekend; we look at the standout moments of the season, while Sue Smith gives us her final round-up of the season and looks ahead to the next Continental Tyres Cup matches. We've heard stories about fans getting snubbed by their footballing heroes, but it's not often we hear about footballers being snubbed. Victor Anichebe recently tweeted about being ignored by two Game of Thrones stars this week; so what happens when other footballers meet their heroes? Which all-time great idolises Mr Bean, and who snubbed Mario Balotelli and his offer of gifts?

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 8

Lynsey Hooper, Kait Borsay and regular star guest Mina Rzouki look at the week in football on The Offside Rule (We Get It!). Some of last season's top scorers, including Alexis Sanchez and Harry Kane, finally got their name on the scoresheet over a month into the new season. But are there any other big hitters across Europe who are yet to score? Sir Alex Ferguson has finally released his aptly titled book 'Leading', and got us thinking about other great leaders in football; who can hold a candle to the Manchester United great? Finally, we look to the Rugby World Cup for inspiration - or maybe not - as England made a bad decision in the dying moments of their game against Wales that lost them the game. We give you our best last minute football fails, from own goals to accumulators. A jubilant Sue Smith, buoyed after Doncaster Belles' promotion, is back for another FAWSL round-up, as the title decider goes down to the final weekend...

London's 'hippest' football club didn't disappoint as they played out a feisty 3-3 draw. In the spirit of the upcoming non-league day on 10 October, we look at players who started at the top level before giving something back to grassroots football at the end of their careers, and initiatives from established clubs supporting their local communities and non-league teams.

It's inspired us to think about other standout debuts. Is 4-4-2 officially dead? We discuss the much-maligned formation and look at teams who've had great success with the classic line-up. Barely a day goes by when we don't hear about footballers' astronomical wages, but what about those who've earned just as much money after football? We look at the winemakers, teachers and entrepreneurs who've made their millions after retiring from the beautiful game...don't miss out!

There's an exclusive interview with England goalkeeping coach Dave Watson who reveals what Wayne Rooney really thought about having to make a speech after the game. England have progressed through qualification with a 100% record only to be disappointed at the finals; but what's different this time? We dissect England's positives ahead of the tournament in France next year. Elsewhere, veteran striker Didier Drogba scored a hat-trick in his MLS debut, proving there's life in the old Drog yet (see what we did there?) and inspired us to look at other footballing stars who were successful well into their twilight years.

The transfer window slammed shut on Tuesday evening, and although it was a quiet deadline day, it's only natural that we dissect the best moves of the summer. As West Ham celebrate an historic win at Anfield, it's been said that the result was bigger than their play-off final victory...really? But it got us thinking about other matches that have been huge for fans despite no silverware to follow.

Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper bring you podcast 3 of the FIFA Women's World Cup for The Offside Rule (We Get It!) before setting off on the road to Ottawa to follow England, who have progressed to the last 16 of the tournament.

Toni Duggan is the next England star to get our Quickfire Questions, and we talk to Seattle Reign's Kim Little, who many of you will recognise from her days at Arsenal. Now that the group stages are over, we look at the surprise and goodbyes ahead of the knockout round: were we surprised at any teams who failed to progress? This World Cup has been labelled the biggest Women's World Cup in history, as the women's game takes hold across the world. One of the questions we hear often is, how much do female footballers earn?

We bring you our standout moments from the second round of group games, where England picked up their first three points in a 2-1 win over Mexico.

The Offside Rule 2014/15 Episode 38

It's the final podcast of a great season and Kait Borsay, Lynsey Hooper and Hayley McQueen are back to bring you some of the highlights of the season. There have been some fierce promotion and relegation battles this season, with the Premier League drop decided on the last day of the season - but who will stay up or down, and who will make a quick return to their league? It's been a season of big goodbyes, with the likes of Gerrard, Drogba and Lampard receiving big send-offs, but what about the forgotten farewells of the season? We also look ahead to the summer and address some summer speculation - where will Big Sam go, and who are West Ham ambitiously after? It may be the last podcast of the 2014-15 season, but fear not - we'll be busy delivering you content across the summer as we head to Canada for the FIFA Women's World Cup, with regular podcasts reporting on how England's Women are faring.

The Offside Rule 2014/15 Episode 37

It's the usual crowd this week on The Offside Rule (We Get It!) as Hayley McQueen rejoins Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper to bring you the penultimate episode of the season. Champions Chelsea might not be ending their season in style as they suffered a surprise 3-0 defeat at the hands of West Brom, and it got us thinking about other shockers of the season, including awful facial hair, a new found fondness of a controversial footballer, and a serious case of too much information! Sadio Mané scored the fastest Premier League hat-trick in history against Aston Villa on Saturday, so we take a look at other stand-out hat-tricks. Our final topic is inspired by Steven Gerrard's emotional farewell to Anfield, and we dish out some parting gifts.

The Offside Rule 2014/15 Episode 36

Lynsey Hooper and Kait Borsay are joined by podcast regular Mina Rzouki to present episode 36 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!). Poor injury-prone Daniel Sturridge has had a hip operation recently and won't return to training with Liverpool until September, having only made 18 appearances this season. It got us thinking, who's had a career that's been marred by injuries and has even been prevented from reaching their full potential? We had to laugh when Newcastle United's John Carver proclaimed he was the best coach in the league last week (the 8 straight defeats suggest otherwise John!), but he's not the first footballing personality with an overinflated ego - who else has made some insane claims about their own talent?! Sue Smith joins us for her last FAWSL round-up of the season and also brings us an announcement on the squad England will be taking to Canada for this summer's World Cup...

It's all over in the Football Leagues and the title has been wrapped up in the Premier League, so we take a look back at title winners and relegated sides and give you some good old fashioned analysis. We get a little indulgent and talk all things David Beckham as the great man himself turns 40, sharing our favourite moments from his glittering career.

Hayley McQueen, Lynsey Hooper and Kait Borsay are back for episode 34 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!). Hayley mingled with the stars at the PFA awards and gives us all the gossip, but we play manager and sub two players into the Team of the Year; who will stay and who will go? Aston Villa's Jack Grealish is stealing the headlines at the moment with standout performances, and there's talk of which national side he'll pledge his allegiance to: England or Ireland? We look at other stars who famously chose the surprise option - did it pay off for them? Finally, in light of AC Milan's punishment for playing so poorly against Udinese, where they were made to stay at the training ground until they started behaving like real footballers, we dish out some punishments of our own! Who will feel the wrath of The Offside Rule? Sue Smith also returns with her weekly FAWSL roundup.

The Offside Rule 2014/15 Episode 33

Episode 33 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!) is brought to you this week by Kait Borsay, Lynsey Hooper and Hayley McQueen to discuss the topical and the trifling from the footballing world. Sepp Blatter was compared to Jesus Christ this week (no, we don't understand either!) and it got us thinking: which modern day football personalities could we compare to historical greats? Jurgen Klopp announced he's leaving Borussia Dortmund and sparked speculation on where he'll end up next. We live the dream and carry out our own FA Cup-style draw and match up marauding managers with clubs who could be looking for change. Sue Smith is back with a particularly tasty round-up of the FAWSL; she gives us all the details on the top performers in the league, Jill Scott's headbutt and the struggling side she bumped into at a service station...

Hayley McQueen, Lynsey Hooper and Kait Borsay bring you episode 32 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!) from sunny Loftus Road to talk all things football. The title race is heating up but for many Chelsea are destined for the trophy, but have they been winning pretty? We look back on past Premier League-winning teams who've won in style. It's been announced that Gabon are the new hosts of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations following Libya's withdrawal; this will be the first time the country has hosted the tournament solo, and it's got us thinking - which obscure countries who've never hosted a major tournament should finally get their turn and why? Finally we revisit a favourite topic of ours and look at the world of player endorsements - from a world-famous goalkeeper dressing up as an oil pipe, to 'Pooh' on a legendary European team's shirts, we've got the silliest and most inappropriate sponsorships and endorsements!

The Offside Rule 2014/15 Episode 31

The trio of Hayley McQueen, Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper are reunited to talk the weird and wonderful in football in The Offside Rule (We Get It!), episode 31. The country is still talking about Charlie Adam's 60-metre screamer against Chelsea this weekend; many have said it couldn't have been deliberate, but it turns out he's practiced it in training for years! We talk other footballers who've reaped the rewards of not giving up, including a current England star who went through tons of rejection as a youngster. Raheem Sterling is surely giving Brendan Rodgers a headache, currently refusing to sign a new contract with Liverpool; who else has made life a nightmare for their manager? Who did Jose Mourinho call 'unmanagable'? Finally we've got a fun foodie topic, following the Masterchef final we look at footballers who've tried their hand at cooking, and egg-related injuries!

Harry Kane is the player on everyone's lips at the moment after scoring on his England debut, but we know that a dream debut doesn't always lead to a glittering career; who can Harry look to for advice going forward? Sue Smith is back on the podcast after the FAWSL season kicked off, giving us an update on all things women's football.

Kait Borsay and Hayley McQueen are joined by the Guardian's football writer Amy Lawrence for episode 29 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!). We've got exclusive interviews from stars of the FAWSL, which kicked off last week, including Alex Scott and Tasha Harding, as we get their thoughts on the season ahead. We're still reeling from Steven Gerrard's shock 38 second appearance against fierce rivals Manchester United before receiving a red card for a stamp on Ander Herrera. The usually-composed skipper had a moment of madness; who else has lost their mind? We talk headbutts and mistaken identity. Aside of this, the quality of the Premier League has been criticised this season, but it's still not over... could current table-toppers Chelsea be usurped? Can their top four rivals emulate past title poaches?

After Seb Larsson's late return to the pitch on Saturday, surprising even (now-departed) Sunderland manager Gus Poyet, we look at other latecomers - including some toilet troubles! Finally, Wayne Rooney set tongues wagging with his knockout celebration at the weekend following a video with Phil Bardsley, so we pair up football stars to sort their problems out in the ring.
