But how will they evolve tactically?  We react LIVE to the news that Mauricio Pochettino has been confirmed as Chelsea’s latest manager. Leeds United and Leicester City join Southampton in relegation from the Premier League. We rake over the coals of a terrible season for two teams with names beginning with L. As Europe’s biggest leagues also draw to a close we go on a quick jaunt across the continent to see what’s what. And there’s discussion on rhinos as a present for the Pope, dragons, pirates and the Green Giant. This episode of the Tifo football podcast is presented by JJ Bull produced by Steve Hankey.

Man City are champions, Bundesliga title race and Premier League relegation

Joe Devine, Jon Mackenzie and JJ Bull are here to talk about some football. Man City have won their fifth title in six seasons. But do the ongoing allegations hanging over them mean that their achievements come with an asterisk? We also spoke in wider terms about how the elite teams all seem to be in transition except for them boys in sky blue. In Germany, Borussia Dortmund are in pole position to wrestle the Bundesliga title off Bayern Munich for the first time in 11 years.  We return to England to look at the Premier League’s bottom as the fate of two relegation slots go to the final round of fixtures. And there’s a lot of nonsense about baths, what percentage of human beings is water and other silly bits.

Brighton beat Arsenal, Man City march on, Southampton go down

Joe Devine, Jon Mackenzie, JJ Bull and Seb Stafford-Bloor are here to talk about some football. Arsenal’s title challenge is basically over after their home defeat to Brighton, with the Seagulls multi-faceted players impressing yet again. Man City won their 11th straight game in the league against Everton as they look set to win the title again. But how long will their dominance last? Southampton are down and we pick at the carcass of their squad and decide which bits are the choice cuts for other Premier League clubs to feast on. Sergio Busquets will be leaving Barcelona at the end of the season. We discuss if he is an era defining player or a weaselly master of the dark arts, or both? There is also some serious debate about the apparent flaws in key plot points in Lord of the Rings. This episode of the Tifo football podcast is presented by Joe Devine and produced by Steve Hankey.

Arsenal beat Newcastle, Man Utd and Liverpool’s top four hopes and Champions League preview

Joe Devine, Jon Mackenzie and Reuben Pinder are here to talk about some football. The race for the top four is hotting up, but which two of Manchester United, Liverpool and Newcastle United will make it? Newcastle United’s hopes took a blow on Tyneside after their defeat to Arsenal who kept themselves on Manchester City’s very expensive coat tails.     We preview the men’s Champions League semi-finals, and you may come out of listening to it knowing less about each tie than more to be honest… We cast our eye briefly and inadequately over the final of League One, England’s third tier.  Plus viscous syrup and various club nicknames.

Liverpool Spurs madness, changes at Leeds Utd and Leicester City draw with Everton

Joe Devine, Jon Mackenzie and Reuben Pinder are here to talk about some football. We talk about the potential sackings of Javi Gracia and Victor Orta at Leeds United. At the time of recording Sam Allardyce has been linked with the Elland Road hot seat so the chaps discuss what that would look like…  Staying at the bottom of the table we talk about Leicester City drawing 2-2 with Everton and the wider relegation battle. It was a very “goally” weekend with two 4-3 results, one of which was Liverpool winning 4-3 against Tottenham. A game which exposed the deep, deep flaws in both of these teams. We also whizz through Man Utd Aston Villa and the Serie A table at a depth which is wholly inadequate.

Newcastle hammer Tottenham, Arsenal fail to win again and a big announcement

Joe Devine, JJ Bull and Reuben Pinder are here to talk about some football. Before we, eventually, get into the show proper. We have a bit of an announcement… Arsenal managed to draw another game, this time against relegation candidates Southampton.  Newcastle Utd hammered Tottenham Hotspur 6-1 at St James Park. We recorded before Cristian Stellini left the club and they have, as Pinder predicted, “given it Mason” for the rest of the season. Man Utd are in the FA Cup final after knocking out Brighton on penalties.  Wrexham have secured promotion from the National League and their “Hollywood” story, I know I know, continues. And, not at JJ’s suggestion surprisingly, we talk about Aberdeen because they’re doing real good right now.

Aston Villa vanquish Newcastle, West Ham trip up Arsenal, Champions League quarter finals

Joe Devine, Jon Mackenzie and JJ Bull are here to talk about some football. Aston Villa made surprisingly easy work of an in-form Newcastle United side by beating them 3-0 at Villa Park. We rake over the coals of a meeting between two of the Premier League’s in-form sides. Arsenal managed to draw a game despite being 2-0 up for the second week in a row, this time against relegation-threatened West Ham. Are they screwing it all up? Joe attempted to give his best inspirational half time team talk and, well just wait… Brighton & Hove Albion are a very well run football club. They beat Chelsea 2-1 over the weekend, who appear to be less well run… But will Todd Boehly’s plan work in the long term? And we review and preview the first and second legs of the Champions League quarter finals.  This episode of the Tifo football podcast is presented by Joe Devine and produced by Steve Hankey.

Liverpool Arsenal madness, Lampard back at Chelsea, Newcastle United ownership

Joe Devine, Jon Mackenzie, Seb Stafford-Bloor and Reuben Pinder are here to talk about some football. We tried to make sense of a mental game at Anfield as Arsenal took a point away at Liverpool. Frank Lampard is back at the Bridge just in time to steer Chelsea to a 1-0 defeat to Wolves.  Bruno Fernandes played deeper in midfield for Manchester United in their 2-0 win over Everton, we looked at that because we found it interesting.   Seb Stafford-Bloor joined us from Germany to guide us through the latest twist in the ongoing saga that surrounds the ownership of Newcastle United. The Pinder-Mackenzie derby saw Leeds take the lead but get blown away 5-1 by Roy Hodgson’s resurgent Crystal Palace. Plus Wrexham won the top of the table clash in the National League including a lovely goal from John Bostock and some goalkeeping heroics by Ben Foster.

Chelsea and Leicester sackings, Man City humble Liverpool and race for top four

JJ Bull, Jon Mackenzie and Reuben Pinder are here to talk about some football. There was a surfeit of sackings in the Premier League over the weekend, so the boys rake over the coals of Graham Potter’s six months at Chelsea and the four year Brendan Rodgers era at Leicester City. Manchester City battered Liverpool when it looked like Liverpool might be about to derail The Citizens title bid. That defeat puts the 2020 Premier League winners in real trouble when it comes to qualifying for the Champions League, with Liverpool behind Brighton and Brentford in the standings as those standings stand.  That race for the Champions League is being led by Newcastle United and Manchester United, with The Magpies overcoming The Red Devils at St James’ Park over the weekend. And speaking of corvids, we discuss whether a collection of intelligent crows should be allowed to watch a game of football if they had a ticket, as well as some other mad nonsense involving seagulls. Oh and AC Milan vs Napoli plus Bayern München vs Borussia Dortmund. This episode of the Tifo football podcast is presented by JJ Bull and produced by Steve Hankey. Learn more about your ad choices.

Bayern Munich manager swap, Conte out at Tottenham and lots of What Ifs…

Michael Bailey, JJ Bull and Jon Mackenzie are here to talk about some football. The chaps gives us a precis on who Julian Nagelsmann is, what kind of football he likes to coach and why that was deemed not good enough by Bayern Munich who have sacked him.  Thomas Tuchel has been hired in his place, but is this just a question of the “elite” managerial carousel turning again? After torching the relationship with his players just over a week ago, Antonio Conte is no longer Tottenham boss.  We talk about where this leaves Spurs in the long term and what they can actually hope for in this most competitive of leagues. Then, the pod gets speculative…  What if the new project at Chelsea doesn’t succeed?  What if Jurgen Klopp leaves Liverpool this summer? WHAT if Carlo Ancelotti becomes Brazil manager? WHAT IF Gavi actually does leave Barcelona on a free transfer? All of these were answered to varying levels of satisfaction… This episode of the Tifo football podcast is presented by Michael Bailey and produced by Steve Hankey. Learn more about your ad choices.

Why Crystal Palace sacked Patrick Vieira, Champions League last eight, Barcelona pull away in La Liga

Joe Devine, JJ Bull, Jon Mackenzie and Reuben Pinder are here to talk about some football. The boys look at why Crystal Palace made the decision to relieve Patrick Vieira of his managerial duties.  We talk about Tottenham and Antonio Conte’s searingly honest press conference after their 3-3 draw with Southampton. The Champions League has reached the quarter final stage and there are some real juicy ties that we drool all over. In Spain, Barcelona opened up an eight point gap over Real Madrid with a 2-1 in El Classico.   Man Utd’s progress to the FA Cup semi-final was marred by a mad 40 second in which Fulham had two men sent off in the space of a minute.  JJ and Jon had a lovely day together at a football match over the weekend so we hear about that lovely time they had. Plus, there’s a discussion about heathland that deteriorates very quickly.   This episode of the Tifo football podcast is presented by Joe Devine and produced by Steve Hankey.

Arsenal cruise past Fulham, Man Utd try Jadon Sancho at 10 and Premier League relegation candidates

Michael Bailey, Joe Bull, and JJ Mackenzie are here to talk about some football. Arsenal have a lovely day against Fulham on the banks of the Thames with a 3-0 win. But is Fulham’s sensational season so far starting to come unstuck? Most of us expected the west London side to be a relegation candidate this year, but they’re not. Instead West Ham, Leicester City, Crystal Palace, Wolves and Everton are some of the teams in trouble in a way that’s surprising.  AFC Bournemouth were backed to be down in the depths when the season began, but after their 1-0 win over Liverpool and a strong performance against Arsenal; could the Cherries actually ripen in the top tier? Man Utd drew 0-0 with Southampton over the weekend but tried Jadon Sancho out at number 10, which was very interesting so we spoke about it. We comprehensively cast our eyes over the last 16 ties for the Champions and Europa Leagues.  Plus, we discover how hard it actually is to read and write everything backwards.

Liverpool decimate Man Utd, late drama at Arsenal and will someone beat Bayern to the Bundesliga?

Joe Devine, JJ Bull, Seb Stafford-Bloor and Jon Mackenzie are here to talk about some football. Liverpool put seven, yes SEVEN, past Manchester United at Anfield. So how the hell did that happen? Elsewhere, Arsenal secured the three points in the dying seconds with a moment that may become part of highlight reels for years to come. Further down the table, Brighton hammered The Hammers West Ham 4-0. Are David Moyes men starting to reek of relegation form? Seb Stafford-Bloor joins us for the second half of the show. We talk about a potential spanner in the works for Newcastle United’s owners emanating from the world of golf... We look to Germany and discuss the fact that there is in fact a title race in the Bundesliga. But is that interesting? We’ll let you decide. Napoli’s fifteen point lead in Italy means there probably isn’t a title race anymore but they will be the fourth different champion there in a row which is… interessante. Plus, we discover the origins of some of our favourite idioms and there is a disturbing conversation about pigs.

Man Utd win the League Cup, Celtic beat Rangers to silverware, Chelsea & Liverpool win nothing

Manchester United ended their five year trophy drought by beating Newcastle United in the League Cup final. We discuss if this is the symbolic start of something good for Erik Ten Hag and his team, and if the League Cup is a minor or major trophy… In Scotland, Celtic win another League Cup and we ponder if the dominance of Ange Postecoglou’s side will keep on going. Forever.  Tottenham find themselves in the top four after beating a defensively and offensively lacklustre Chelsea 2-0. At this point, the redemption arc for Graham Potter at Chelsea is going to be quite epic if it does come… We talk for a bit about quite how drastic the collapse in standards at Liverpool has been, and Jon gets very excited about Javi Gracia’s first game, and victory; as Leeds United manager. Plus, we briefly look at how Paris St Germain will probably win Ligue Un again but probably not the Champions League. And, even more briefly, we cast our eyes over the last 16 draw for the Europa League, Europe’s second most major, or minor; cup competition.

Arsenal’s late comeback, Man City’s dropped points and Barcelona’s La Liga lead

Michael Bailey, JJ Bull and Jon Mackenzie are here to talk about some football. Arsenal ended their winless streak by beating Aston Villa very, very late on. But will every game be so hard for The Gunners for the rest of this season? Manchester City yet again dominate a side and fail to win. But how to explain it? Damned if we know. Newcastle United had possibly the worst start to a game for any side this season in their 2-0 defeat to Liverpool, and it’s left them in the goalkeeping lurch for the League Cup final. And will Liverpool sneak past the Magpies into top four contention?  One team who almost certainly won’t be challenging for the Champions League places this season is Chelsea. After losing to bottom side Southampton, will the Chelsea board really, actually stick with Graham Potter? Plus, we look at La Liga and how Barcelona have levered themselves into first place with an impressive, and surely unsustainable; defensive record.

Man Utd finding their feet, Man City are angry and Chelsea are in between

JJ Bull, Jon Mackenzie and Seb Stafford-Bloor are here to talk about some football. Manchester United are looking like they’re starting to dance to Erik Ten Hag’s tune. But will that tune lead towards a title race? Manchester City might have had a fire lit under them which is both terrifying and quite annoying to be honest. Chelsea are a work in progress but will they actually allow Graham Potter to progress that work?  And we discuss the VAR errors over the weekend and really try to make it not be boring. Plus, we look at a Bundesliga that sees Union Berlin back to their pre-World Cup best in the battle with Bayern. JJ also shoehorns in talking about UFOs, or UAPs I should say, on multiple occasions.

Spurs allege Manchester City are crap, Arsenal stumble against Everton and animals in space?

Joe Devine, JJ Bull, Jon Mackenzie and Seb Stafford-Bloor (briefly) are here to talk about some football. Seb Stafford-Bloor walks us through the allegations brought against Manchester City by the Premier League over alleged breaches of a series of financial rules. On the pitch, Manchester City lost to Tottenham Hotspur away, their third consecutive defeat on the road. Harry Kane became Tottenham’s record goalscorer in this game. We chat about why he so good. Arsenal couldn’t handle a resurgent Everton riding that new manager bounce in their 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park. All of this may be of benefit to Manchester United. They scored a very “Ten Hagian” goal against Crystal Palace and are sneaking closer and closer to the Premier League summit. And somehow the different types of animals that have been sent to space came up… The Tifo football podcast is presented by Joe Devine and produced by Steve Hankey. *** • Get 6 months of Babbel language learning for free when you purchase a 6 month subscription by entering the code ATHLETIC at babbel.com/play Learn more about your ad choices.

Brighton’s team building, Sean Dyche in at Everton and Anthony Gordon out to Newcastle

Joe Devine, JJ Bull and Jon Mackenzie are here to talk about some football. Arsenal and Manchester City played each other for the first time in this most unusual of seasons.  But what impact will City’s win in the FA Cup have on the minds of the boys in red and white? It probably has nothing to do with Arsenal’s pursuit of Moises Caicedo, and we also don’t make that link but it works for an episode description… Caicedo looks set to be yet another brilliant buy (and sale at some point) for Brighton and Hove Albion.  We chat a little bit about why them Seagulls soar so high in the transfer market.  We move on to discuss Everton. They have a new manager in Sean Dyche and some money in the bank from their sale of Anthony Gordon.  But will all this help the Toffees come… unstuck?  Artificial intelligence, potatoes and Aberdeen were also discussed.

Arsenal march on, Chelsea sign on and Everton move on

Joe Devine, JJ Bull and Jon Mackenzie are here to talk about some football. Arsenal continued their best ever start to a top flight season with a 3-2 win over Manchester United.  But are Mikel Arteta's touchline antics a marginal gain or a sign of the moral failure of the entire football club? Chelsea versus Liverpool was not that interesting. So instead we spoke about Chelsea's new lengthy contracts.  Are they an unusual outlier or a presage of things to come? We move on to a win for West Ham in Frank Lampard's last game as Everton manager.  Did we record before he was sacked? Of course we did. There was also an inexplicable amount of discussion about cows in this episode. The Tifo football podcast is presented by Joe Devine and produced by Steve Hankey. Learn more about your ad choices.

Joe Devine, JJ Bull and Jon Mackenzie are here to talk about some football. Events in London and Manchester are the first focus for the fellas in this episode. We start with league leaders Arsenal. Is the title theirs to lose now? The Gunners beat North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. For Spurs, this defeat raises many, many questions.  Moving on to Manchester, a win for United over City continued the Ten Hagian revolution for the Red Devils. But are they in the title mix now too? Liverpool lost again, this time against a brilliant Brighton who have taken to DeZerbi’s methods like a seagull to a bag of chips. Plus, we explore the Premier League’s bottom. Relegation to be precise. At least eight teams are in the mix at our count. But who will drop out by season’s end? Finally, a word or two is said about Napoli, who sit imperiously atop Serie A with a nine point lead having just put five past Juventus. Bellissima.

We’re Back Baby!

Joe Devine, JJ Bull and Jon Mackenzie are here to talk about some football. For the first show of 2023 the boys start, unexpectedly, with Southampton. The Athletic’s Southampton reporter Jacob Tanswell joins us to give all of the insight. Will Southampton sink without a trace on the South Coast? Is the new owner's long term plan working? Manchester United have a 100% winning record since the post World Cup, and at the time of recording before anyone goes near the comments in like five weeks time. Has Erik Ten Hag started to get the fear back into the Red Devils? And would a big man up top make them even better?  Plus, Chelsea are facing an uncomfortable transition from their short term habits to longer term planning. But will they hold their nerve and keep Graham Potter? Finally, Haaland is great, but are Manchester City better without him? This is discussed and quickly dismissed, but it’s a good ol’ chat.  The Tifo Football Podcast is presented by Joe Devine and produced by Steve Hankey. Learn more about your ad choices.
