Episode 2785: Ange Walks The Line, Libertadores In London, Arsenal Attack, Keys To The Kingdom
Tottenham and Chelsea took yesterday’s Libertadores chat as a direct challenge and defied the tropes about the homogenised, robotic nature of top-level football to produce one of the most thrilling and ridiculous games we have ever seen.
Ange Postecoglou stunned the world by defending exactly the opposite of the way everyone defends with nine men. Is this… good?
Damien Delaney joins us to discuss Ange’s insane tactical approach and explains why he would be willing to die for this madman.
Plus there’s an angry Keys to the Kingdom, pyrrhic defeats, stacatto soccer, Arsenal fans attack Eoin and we debate the balance of the SAS strike partnership.
