S2 E109 - Doom & f-ing gloom

PLOT: Recording an hour after a really dross defeat can mean a lot of the raw emotion is still there, that's fairly evident on this one.  NSFW and plenty of F-bombs, not sure why I've censored the title to be honest because the swearing starts as soon as Seb starts speaking.  The Podders pull the game apart and try and make sense of another lacklustre performance.  They pay special attention the balance of the team, the terrible defending and the general malaise around the squad at the minute.  Seb also goes on a proper rant about VAR and the state of modern football.  It's not as bad as it sounds, promise.

CREW: Franco (ST Holder, London) hosts and is joined by The Harlow Globetrotter (Vienna), The Caller (ST Holder, Up North) and Quizmaster Seb Short.

S2 E108 - When Thursday comes

PLOT: The Cheese Room Americas crew reunite for the first preview show since the restart looking ahead to the vital clash with Sheffield United in the chase for those European spots. They look at the threat Chris Wilders Blades team pose through their incredible work ethic and fitness, their unique overlapping centre back tactic, why Lundstram is no longer the Fantasy League darling in defence and who will get the nod from Jose.

S2 E107 - Greasing the Iron Curtain

PLOT: In Part 1 the Podders got together for a chat about the current state of things, starting with the weather, so skip the first 3 mins if you want to avoid that ;)  Does anyone care about Liverpool?  Is Dier actually alright at football again?  Is Lamela the most important player for Spurs at the minute.  In Part 2 the Quizy rascal throws down some devilishly difficult questions which would test even the biggest Spurs nerd

S2 E106 - Two Nil in your cup final

PLOT: The Podders review the fairly routine, if not slightly frustrating, 2-0 win against West Ham in the premier league.  They discuss the omission of Lamela and Bergwijn from the starting XI, frustrations with Jose's rigid system, Lo Celso taking control of the middle and Kane fighting to get his mojo back.  They also rant about VAR and ponder the Ndombele situation.

S2 E105 - To defend is to draw

PLOT: Football is back!  The Podders review the draw against Man Utd behind closed doors at NWHL.  They discuss the slightly surprising team selection and less surprising defensive tactics from Jose.  All the main action from the game is discussed, including a decent performance from Lamela and the stupid penalty conceded by Dier.  They also look to the next game against the spammers on Tuesday.
