"Piers Morgan's head might explode"
Anthony Kendrick and Richard 'Hero' Hudson are on the latest episode of The V2 Football Podcast. We begin the show by discussing the events in Manchester, #CityUnited and how football has came together with donations made by the clubs and players including Wayne Rooney and Yaya Toure, amongst others. From there we move on to discuss Manchester United winning the Europa League thanks to a 2-0 win over Ajax in the final. It hasn't been the most exciting of campaigns, with the likes of Anderlecht, Celta Vigo and Rostov not being the highest profile opponents. But does this, along with the League Cup victory qualify it as a successful season for Man United? We move on to discuss Wayne Rooney, and his exclusion from the latest England squad. We also discuss the managers at some of the lower Premier League teams who have left their clubs. Sam Allardyce has left Crystal Palace, but will he be back, or does he genuinely have no interest in coming back into football? Marco Silva has left Hull and has been strongly linked to the Porto job, and David Moyes has been linked to China after leaving Sunderland. The FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Arsenal is discussed, with the game having an added dimension of being possibly Wenger's last at Arsenal. And to finish, we discuss a Premier League Team of the Season. One of my pet hates is unbalanced teams with too many attacking players, so I suggest a balanced team of the season.

The focus was on the bottom of the table, where relegation-threatened Birmingham, Nottingham Forest and Blackburn all won on the final day. This left Blackburn to go down, with Tony Mowbray retaining the support of Venky's.

Carlisle and Blackpool won their games against Exeter and Leyton Orient to retain their play-off places. At the bottom of the table, both Hartlepool and Newport won their games which meant that Newport stayed up. We then move on to discuss this season's playoffs.

The 72 Show - Episode 2.26
Anthony Kendrick and Nick Davie preview the final week of the football league action, as well as review the final League One table. We begin the show by discussing the ongoing race between Brighton and Newcastle. With both now promoted, who will top the league, and does it matter? Brighton remain top after losing their last two games but Newcastle have beaten Preston and Cardiff to move a point behind. The play-off race is over, unless we see a 13 goal swing with Leeds only drawing against Norwich. They came back from 3-0 down, but with Fulham drawing, they have effectively secured 6th place. League One's season has concluded with Sheffield United finishing the season on 100 points, and they will be joined in the Championship by Bolton who won on the final day to secure their place. Fleetwood will have to settle for the playoffs, where they are joined by Scunthorpe, Bradord and Millwall. The final play-off spot was secured following in dramatic fashion, with Shaun Hutchinson scoring a late winner. At the bottom of the table, Port Vale join Swindon, Coventry and Chesterfield in the relegation zone after failing to win their final game of the season. What does the future hold for them with Michael Brown in charge? In League Two, the final games are to be played this weekend. The top three are all confirmed in Plymouth, Doncaster and Portsmouth, but the champions are not. Luton and Exeter have secured 4th and 5th places, but the final play-off places are up for grabs with anyone up to 12th-placed Mansfield mathematically able to get into the play-off spots currently held by Carlisle and Blackpool. We also discuss the final game between Blackpool and Leyton Orient, which has seen the EFL intervene in the ticket sales. Finally, we discuss whether Newport or Hartlepool will be the ones to join Leyton Orient in the National League next year.

His career was ended early by a back injury, but since he has done various charity work and has been working on a book, which we discuss. We then move on to discuss the football league, starting with the Championship. Blackburn are currently in the relegation zone, but can they get out of trouble? Harry Redknapp has replaced Gianfranco Zola as Birmingham manager with the side hovering just above the relegation zone, but can they get another win to confirm their safety? And also, can Leeds get back in the play-offs following their recent poor form including a loss to Burton Albion. League One has the final gameweek this Sunday and we discuss the final gameweek.

We also discuss Port Vale's trip to Fleetwood, which is crucial to both sides. Port Vale need a win to have any chance of avoid relegation, and whether Bolton or Fleetwood will get the final automatic promotion spot, and whether Port Vale can escapre relegation. In League Two, the automatic promotion spots are confirmed with Plymouth, Portsmouth and Doncaster all confirmed but it is still all to play for in the playoff race, with three points separating six sides. And at the bottom of the table, will Newport complete the great escape from the relegation zone after getting another win to move two points ahead of Hartlerpool?

"Joey Barton was right for once"
Anthony Kendrick is joined by Richard 'Hero' Hudson and Shane Lees for an entertaining episode of the V2 Football Podcast. We usually start the show by discussing the humourous stories of the week, but with the news this week things take a slightly more sombre tone. Joey Barton's ban for gambling offences, David Moyes being charged by the FA for his conduct with Vicki Sparks, and the HMRC arrests relating to tax and National Insurance fraud are all discussed. We then move on to discuss the FA Cup games, with Chelsea playing Arsenal in the final. How does the two sides winning set them up for the league? For Chelsea, does this help keep their momentum to hold on to top spot, and in Arsenal's case, give them the belief that they can get top four? We move on to preview the Manchester derby - but Shane has an alternative view on how the injuries will affect Manchester United. This week's quiz puts Anthony up against Shane, with Hero as quizmaster. We try to guess the year in which various clubs are formed, with a clear winner found throughout. And we finish by continuing our young XI, and answering the question of who has the more punchable face - Ander Herrera or Sergio Busquets?

"Is This Tottenham's Last Chance for a Title?"
Richard ‘Hero’ Hudson is joined by Nick Davie and Shane Lees First up is a player who over the years I’ve shown my admiration for as a shining example of everything that is right in a modern footballer, my good old friend Carlos Tevez, yes this week the little Judas who’s raking in £615,000 a week, yes a week decided to miss his team Shanghai Shenua’s away game v Changchun Yatai to go and visit the local Disneyland, though as many parents will know it’s probably a good job that he earns that much knowing how much Disneyland charges for their meals! In the Danish Superleague this week it was a heated derby between Brondby and Copenhagen, as the Copenhagen player Ludwig Augustinsson went to take a corner he was pelted with dead rats! Now firstly I wonder from this when in the mindset of a fan do they take the conscious decision to bring a number of dead rodents to a football match. On a whim I wouldn’t even dream of throwing a empty fanta bottle in the direction of the pitch but that’s some serious planning going on to both collect and then bring several dead rats to a football match with the intention of throwing them at opposing fans. Continuing on from that game and the Tottenham result it’s now a 4 point gap at the top of the table with both teams having 6 games left to crown the champions, with 2 losses in the past 3 games are Chelsea showing signs of bottling it? Or have Spurs left it too late to mount a title push? Behind them Liverpool are sitting pretty in 3rd place but have only 5 games left, City 2 points behind a game in hand and Utd in 5th place, 6 points behind but 2 games in hand. Arsenal are a further 3 points behind so I’m ruling those as clear outsiders at present but who do you two think will take the final two places in the top four? Earlier on today the PFA team of the Year was announced GK: David De Gea RB: Kyle Walker CB: David Luiz CB: Gary Cahill LB: Danny Rose CM: Dele Alli CM: N’Golo Kante RW: Sadio Mane LW: Eden Hazard ST: Romelu Lukaku ST: Harry Kane So last thing I wanted to discuss and this is something we briefly mentioned earlier in the show is the Chinese Super League. With wages of over £600k per week for the likes of Tevez and the President of Tianjin Quanjin offering 650k a week to Costa is there going to be a tipping point in which the Chinese League not only appeals to what are deemed the ‘mercenary’ element of the game but will actually become a real powerhouse in football to rival the English, Spanish and German leagues? Well that’s the end of this episode of the v2 podcast, hope you’ve enjoyed my stint as host, my thanks to both Shane and Nick, if you’d like to listen to other shows or our sister shows you can do so at v2football.com, you can follow us on Twitter on @v2football and discuss football on the forum which is 606v2.com, thank you and goodnight!

The 72 Show - Brighton Are Finally Up!
Richard ‘Hero’ Hudson is joined by Nick Davie and Shane Lees After a number of years of being the bridesmaid they’re finally going to the Premier League, Nick…Brighton are going up. What for you has been the contributing factors to their success this season? When you look back on Brighton only 20 years ago they were almost relegated from the Football League as well as being very close to liquidation and having to play their home games at Gillingham, flash forward to now and you have a fantastic stadium, one of the best training centres in the country and the future is looking brighter than a day on the beach there in August, can they solidify their place next season in the Premier League? Newcastle look nailed on for 2nd spot and a quick return, prior to the season starting most people would have bet their house on Newcastle finishing run away Champions so will they look back upon this season with a slight touch of disappointment or consider it main job achieved and look ahead to next season? In the Play-offs it’s looking likely for Reading & Huddersfield and then 2 from Sheff Wednesday, Fulham and Leeds, who’s your four to go through and your eventual winners? At the foot of the table Rotherham have been dead in the water since time began and Wigan now need a miracle, with them though could see one of two former league champions drop into League One as Blackburn & Forest both are precariously hanging on to their Championship status, what has gone wrong with these two clubs? Moving onto League One now and Sheffield Utd have finally achieved promotion back up to the Championship after several years of being nearly men. Since the start of 2015-16 Chris Wilder has a record of played 89, won 56, drawn 22 and lost 11, despite him being a boyhood Blades fan, ball boy and former player will he be a manager that will be on a few bigger clubs shopping lists this summer? Over the past few seasons it’s been a pretty grim time to be a football fan in Yorkshire, this season though has seen a huge reversal of fortunes with varying levels of success for Huddersfield, Leeds, both Sheffield clubs, Bradford & Doncaster. Is there something brewing in the waters for the clubs over t’hills? Lastly I wished to discuss the drop from the football league to the conference and it brings me to a quote from the late great Mancunian Anthony H Wilson… As a youth, fans believe the centre forward is the most important person at their club. As they mature, they come to appreciate it’s the manager that counts. But it is only when they reach the wisdom of middle age that they come to accept the truth, by far the most significant figure is the chairman. In Francesco Becchetti Leyton Orient have an owner who has destroyed their once proud club both off and on the field, this weekend shall probably see them relegated from the league and on the 12th of June Becchetti has to pay off debts of £5.5m or sell the club as a winding up order looms once again, to what level do the FA have to take some form of responsibility for failing to recognise chairman such as Becchetti when they run the ‘Fit and Proper Person Test’? Well that’s the end of this episode of the 72 show, Hope you’ve enjoyed my stint as host, if you’d like to listen to other shows or our sister shows you can do show at v2football.com, you can follow us on Twitter on @v2football and discuss football on the forum which is 606v2.com, thank you and goodnight!

"How can Arsene Wenger stay at Arsenal?"
Anthony Kendrick is joined by Ethan Giles, also known as Crimey on the V2 Forum. In this show we discuss the top four race, the relegation battle and Leicester's chances in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid. We start the show with a couple of La Liga stories which have caught my eye involving Tony Adams and Neymar. The top four race is then looked at with a focus on Liverpool. How much will they miss Sadio Mane, and can Daniel Sturridge help to fill the void? We also look at Arsenal, who suffered a damaging 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace. With captain on the night Theo Walcott saying that Palace wanted it more, the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez not signing new contracts and top four looking even more unlikely, how can Arsene Wenger stay at Arsenal? We move on to preview the Champions League games. Is there any chance of Leicester getting through against Atletico Madrid in what will surely be a fascinating game tactically? We also look at the two heavyweights in Bayern Munich and Real Madrid who face each other, with the added subplot of the master vs the student with Carlo Ancelotti and Zinedine Zidane. The relegation battle continues, with Hull and Swansea seemingly battling it out for the final spot. Sunderland and Middlesbrough appear to be completely down, but are there any other sides that may get dragged into the battle? We finish the show by discussing Performance of the Week - with the four nominees Marouane Fellaini, Simon Mignolet, Andros Townsend and Dele Alli. No prizes for guessing who the Liverpool fan predicts, but does Anthony agree? Check out our website www.v2football.com and follow us on twitter @v2football Thanks for listening!

The 72 Show - Episode 2.23 (with Andy Couzens)
Anthony Kendrick and Nick Davie return for the latest episode of The 72 Show, in which we are joined by former Leeds, Carlisle and Blackpool midfielder Andy Couzens. We start the show by asking how Andy's current projects are getting on, and with a debate about young players in football. Are young players getting too much money too early? We also discuss life after football, and at what point footballers should be thinking about their future. We move on to the Championship, beginning our review with Leeds who currently sit in 5th place. Play-offs seem secured, but who will they be joined by? Sheffield Wednesday sit sixth but we discuss the possibility of Fulham or Derby County sneaking into sixth place. The battle at the top is reviewed, with Brighton and Newcastle having a gap over third-placed Huddersfield. We also debate the sides at the bottom of the Championship. Wigan won against already-relegated Rotherham with a 97th minute winner, but does that give them a fighting chance? Blackburn have struggled after showing promise under Tony Mowbray with three losses in a row. Could Birmingham go down, despite their board putting their support behind Gianfranco Zola. We also discuss Sheffield United and Doncaster, who sit top of Leagues One and Two respectively and have now confirmed their promotions this season. The automatic promotion battles in both leagues seem relatively predictable with Bolton, Plymouth and Portsmouth having a gap to those teams in behind. But in both leagues, the play-off races appear impossible to call. In League Two specifically, eight teams are separated by just four points. We pay particular note to Andy's former clubs, Blackpool and Carlisle. We finish the show by discussing the sacking of Grimsby manager Marcus Bignot. With the club having little to play for this season, it appears a strange time to sack the manager.

Which of the Home Nations will qualify? We move on to discuss the big stories from Europe - including Spain beating France 2-0 in a game which included video replays. Is this something we would like to see more commonplace in the game? We also react to the sacking of Danny Blind as Holland boss, and ask where they go from here. The South American qualifying is also mentioned, with a shoutout to Brazil as the first nation to qualify, and Lionel Messi getting a four match ban for insulting an official. Is this extreme, as Barcelona say, or is it a fair punishment? We finish the show by discussing the Daily Mail's Top 50 Young Players list. Is Dele Alli the best young player, or is it English bias?

The 72 Show is back for another episode despite the International Break. Anthony Kendrick and Nick Davie are joined by Cheltenham fan and writer George Didcote. We discuss a few stories which have come from the Championship, including Gary Rowett and Neil Warnock suggesting that Derby and QPR can make the playoffs. Are this an unrealistic target, or is the playoff race more open than we think it is? We also discuss the breaking news that Alan Judge has signed a new contract with Brentford, and get George's views on the continuing race at the top of the table. With no football in the Championship, we discuss Leagues One and Two. In League One, Coventry have won their last two games and struggling Swindon impressively beat Millwall. Off the pitch, Tim Sherwood has got a two-match stadium ban for abusing an official, swearing numerous times. We also look at the relegation battle in League Two with Leyton Orient and Newport in the drop zone, but could they stay up at the expense of one of the teams hovering just above? We also discuss Cheltenham Town in detail, as George's supported club. We discuss their time in the National League last season and winning promotion, along with their recent form which has seen them lose their last four games.

The Hipsters Guide to Europe #4 (with Dan Tracey from realfootballman.com)
Anthony Kendrick is joined by La Liga expert Dan Tracey @dantracey1983 for the fourth episode of The Hipsters Guide to Europe. We begin the show with a few of the big stories across Europe, including Roger Schmidt being sacked as Leverkusen boss and the ongoing title race in France. We then move on to the focus of the show with Barcelona at the top of La Liga. Enrique is leaving at the end of the season, but what will his legacy be? And where do Barcelona go from here. We discuss various possibilities, including La Liga coaches Valverde and Jorge Sampaoli, along with Pocchettino, Koeman, Wenger and potential left-field choice Laurent Blanc. We then look at the title race, where the Enrique news may give Barcelona a renewed determination for the title, but can Real Madrid bounce back from recent stutters to claim La Liga? We look at whether Cristiano Ronaldo is reaching the beginning of the end, and if Gareth Bale can push on to be in with the very top players. Sevilla currently sit third just five points off top spot, but do they have a serious chance at the title? In any case, third place is a massive overachievement for the club. We then look at the other sides in La Liga, with Athletico Madrid, Real Sociedad and Villareal in a battle for the final Champions League spot, and also cover Valencia who have had a bit of a resurgence and Deportivo who have recently appointed Pepe Mel as their new manager. The show concludes with a discussion on the Champions League. The big story from the first leg was PSG beating Barcelona by four goals, but is there any chance of a comeback? We also mention the English sides Leicester and Manchester City who perhaps have the most open second legs against Sevilla and Monaco.

On a brighter note, we discuss the upcoming EFL 'Checkatrade' trophy final against Oxford United. We then move on to discuss the Championship, with the relegation battle our focus. Burton Albion drew 0-0 with Bristol City with Matty giving his views on whether the club can stay up, as well as an insight on Shaun Barker who he recently interviewed. Blackburn have improved under Tony Mowbray with two wins out of three, with Matty discussing his thoughts on the former Coventry boss. The top of the table is also discussed, with Brighton losing 3-0 to Newcastle, is this just a blip or is it the start of a choke? League One saw Fleetwood continue their impressive run, getting a fourth win in a row by beating Scunthorpe 2-0 to replace them in the automatic promotion places. We review the teams at the top of the table and who will go up. In League two, Leyton Orient got the result of the weekend with a massive 4-0 win over Newport. Can this revive their survival hopes?

We look at whether the likes of Leeds and Huddersfield can challenge. We also look at Blackburn, who have replaced Owen Coyle with Tony Mowbray who has made a positive start. In League One, we look at who will finish second behind current table-toppers Sheffield United. Scunthorpe have been impressive all season but are struggling for form at present with Fleetwood in third place on a club-record unbeaten run. Along with this, we discuss the sides at the bottom with Oldham and Bury showing good form. Could teams such as Northampton and Charlton get dragged into the relegation battle? League Two saw Doncaster win their first game in six with a 3-2 victory over Cambridge. They remain top with the other sides around them also stuttering, with Plymouth and Carlisle both losing their last games to Notts County and Cheltenham respectively who have both given themselves some breathing space from the relegation zone. We also discuss the EFL 'Checkatrade' trophy and the FA Cup exploits of Sutton United and Lincoln City, along with another look at Leyton Orient.

The Hipsters Guide to Europe #3
Anthony Kendrick, Richard 'Hero' Hudson and Nadz present 'The Hipsters Guide to Europe', in which we discuss the biggest stories across the continent. The major transfers during the January transfer window are analysed. In the Bundesliga, Dortmund signed 17-year old striker Alexander Isak amidst interest from Real Madrid, with Neven Subotic and Adrien Ramos leaving on loan deals. We also saw attacking midfielders Leon Bailey and Yunus Malli move to Leverkusen and Wolfsburg respectively, how highly rated are they and can they be the next big thing? In La Liga, Jovetic has made a good start at Sevilla but is this enough to impress a doubtful Richard? And can forwards Fabian Orellana and Simone Zaza turn around Valencia's fortunes? We move on to Serie A with the biggest move Mattia Caldara to Juventus, who could be the one to finally dislodge the Juventus back three. Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu has joined AC Milan on loan, along with Lucas Ocampos. Finally we look at the French league, with Julian Draxler and Goncalo Guedes joining PSG for around £60m. Can these signings improve their side, and what does Nadz make of their change in transfer policy? The other big stories include the La Liga title race, with Real Madrid top and favourites. What does Nadz make of the side and how much has Gareth Bale's absence affected them?

The 72 Show - Episode 2.17 (with Roger Eli)
Anthony Kendrick and Nick Davie are joined by former Leeds, Wolves, and most famously Burnley striker Roger Eli. Follow us on Twitter @v2football and Roger Eli @rogereli99 Check out our website www.v2football.com We cover a wide range of issues throughout the show, starting with Roger's career from the beginnings at Leeds through to finishing his career at non-league. We also hear about his son's experiences at the Huddersfield academy and how it compares to other academies. We move on to discuss the Championship, including a 5-1 victory for Norwich over Nottingham Forest which turned out to be a huge result for both sides. Norwich remain a part of the play-off race, while Nottingham Forest are in trouble. They have appointed Alan Brazil until the end of the season but is this the right decision? We also look at Derby's comeback against Bristol Rovers to draw 3-3, and Warren Joyce at Wigan. Can he keep them up and how highly does Roger rate him as a manager? In League One, he big talking points came at Wimbledon. On the pitch, Tom Eliott received a second yellow card for an over the top celebration for his last minute equalizer, but is this the sort of thing that should be punished? At what level is a celebration too much? Former MK Dons and current Charlton boss Karl Robinson was confronted by a Wimbledon volunteer which the club will be investigating. In the rest of League One, Fleetwood continued their unbeaten run and Scunthorpe lost their second game in a week to in-form Shrewsbury. Bolton and Sheffield United both won their games as the battle at the top continues. In League Two, our talk focusses on former Premier League clubs Portsmouth and Blackpool who both picked up good wins in what is a critical time of the season in a very congested league. We also discuss Crewe's 5-0 win over Grimsby for a first win in 12, and Plymouth's 3-0 win over an Exeter side who had won their past seven games. We finish the show by discussing a BBC News Report which suggests that 39% of players in the football league have not been drug tested, and that no tests have taken place in the National League. We ask Roger if things have changed since he was a player. We also look at the consequences of testing, which has found a small group of un-named players guilty of recreational drugs and one player in Alan Judge given a warning due to being over the limit on a drug he is taking for asthma. We discuss the FA Policies of whether players should be accountable of their whereabouts of all times, and whether the FA are doing the right thing in not disclosing those players who have been caught taking recreational drugs.

The 72 Show - Episode 2.15
Anthony Kendrick (@Antonthology) and Nick Davie (@Nick_Davie) return for the latest episode of The 72 Show. In this show, we focus on the FA Cup and Transfer Deadline Day. We start by discussing Sutton United and Lincoln City, the two remaining non-league sides. They both continued their FA Cup runs with victories over Championship sides Leeds and Brighton. Both sides put out weakened teams which gives rise to the argument that the FA Cup magic is not only gone for the Premier League sides but to some FL72 sides as well. Other FA Cup results included Milwall beating Watford, Oxford United beating Newcastle and Wolverhampton Wanderers' incredible 2-1 victory at Anfield. The draw brought up the tie that Sutton United wanted, a home game against Arsenal. There is talk that the game may be moved but would this be the right thing? The other ties from the fifth round on TV are Burnley vs Lincoln, Wolves vs Chelsea, Fulham vs Tottenham and Blackburn vs Man Utd. We then move on to discuss Transfer Deadline Day, along with the other major January transfers. Scott Hogan joined Aston Villa from Brentford when he was linked to Premier League clubs and German side RB Leipzig. He was joined by Henri Lansbury who joins from Nottingham Forest, who have brough in Zach Clough, Ross McCormack and Joao Teixera. Wigan also had a busy deadline day, with former Man Utd academy manager Warren Joyce signing Ryan Tunnicliffe, James Weir, Alex Bruce and Gabriel Obertan. Omar Bogle also comes in after scoring 19 goals for Grimsby this season. Our transfer round-up also includes the controversy of Matty Taylor joining Bristol Rovers from Bristol City, along with Theo Robinson moving to Southend from Lincoln City. Shola Ameobi is on trial at Notts County and Leyton Orient's Ulrich Nnomo is not allowed by FIFA rules to join Paris FC on loan despite all parties being happy for the transfer to go ahead. To finish the show we cover some of the other stories from the football league, including Nigel Clough staying at Burton Albion, Scunthorpe moving to the top of League One after winning their last three games, and Notts County's player-manager Kevin Nolan.

We discuss Sonja's memories of supporting Udinese. This includes when they were in the Champions League five years ago, compared to the current hopes of a top ten finish. They have lost a number of players including the legendary Antonio Di Natale. We move on to discuss the Serie A season. Juventus are at the top of the table and could make it a hat trick of Serie A and Coppa Italia victories this season. We discuss whether the competition in Napoli and Roma can win the title. We then look to discuss the Milan clubs. Both clubs are a shadow of their former selves but have been linked with Chinese takeovers and Inter, in particular may have a huge transfer budget. Can they become European giants once more? We then move on to discuss Atlanta, who are sixth in the table and may end up with European football next season. The relegation battle has FC Crotone joined by Pescara and a Palermo side which has had four managers this season. We also discuss whether Juventus and Napoli can progress in the Champions League. Both sides finished top of their groups - but while Juventus have a winnable game against Porto, Napoli have been drawn against Real Madrid. There is also the possibility of Italy gaining a fourth Champions League spot at the expense of the Premier League. Could this help to put Italian Football at the level it once was?

The 72 Show Episode 2.14 (with Matty Roper)
Anthony Kendrick is joined by Nick Davie for the first anniversary of The 72 Show. Coventry fan Matty Roper joins us for this edition, and was on the first edition of the show. There have been number of managerial changes, with Northampton, Nottingham Forest, Crewe, Hartlepool, Oldham, Notts County and Chesterfield all discussed. We start the show by reviewing the FA Cup Third Round replays. Plymouth lost 1-0 to Liverpool after their incredible 0-0 draw at Anfield, but the big stories came from non-league with Sutton and Lincoln both winning replays over Wimbledon and Ipswich to make the fourth round. In the Championship the battle at the top continues. Newcastle moved top with a Daryl Murphy winner against Brentford, taking full advantage of Brighton's 2-0 loss against Preston, their first loss since September. Leeds are also potentially in the race for automatic promotion with an impressive 1-0 victory over Derby. At the bottom of the table, Wigan got what could prove to be a crucial victory over Burton Albion, and Rotherham beat Norwich to put more pressure on Alex Neil. In League One John Sheridan began his third strint at Oldham with a 1-0 victory over Gillingham. There was more bad news for Matty's Coventry side with Chesterfield winning and Bury finally won a game with four goals for James Vaughan. Are Coventry going down? We also get Matty's thoughts on the excitement of a EFL Trophy Quarter Final against the Swansea Academy side, and whether he will be attending. There are also a number of sides facing the drop in League Two. But betting was suspended with one bookie on Leyton Orient after a flurry of bets. A number of players have been transfer listed and we take the opportunity to critique the owner. Newport manager Graham Westley made a bright start but have lost seven games before drawing against Colchester at the weekend. The manager has been critical of the pitch and feels that this has played a part in their downfall with postponements in their games. We finish by discussing the transfer window so far. A couple of Premier League players have joined clubs on loan, such as Keshi Andrson to Northampton and Man Utd's Joe Riley to Sheffield Unitd. Andreas Weimann has moved to Wolves, Tiago Ilori to Reading and there has been a dispute involving Derby and Fulham over loan striker Chris Martin.

The 72 Show - Episode 2.13 (with Jason Jarrett)
Anthony Kendrick and Nick Davie are joined by Jason Jarrett, a former football league midfielder. Jarrett played for a number of clubs, beginning his career at Blackpool before joining Bury, Wigan, Preston and a number of other clubs before finishing his career at Salford City working with the Class of 92. We discuss his playing career, and how homesickness affected him joining Norwich and playing for hometown club Bury and how things ended at Salford City. We then move on and talk about life after football, where he works with Gareth Seddon at DRN Sports alongside his other charity work. Jarrett is also a Level 4 referee, so we get his thoughts on the top referees, before the tables are turned with a question for us! We then move on to discuss the ties in the FA Cup, with stories including the lowest ranked side in the competition Stourbridge losing to Wycombe Wanderers, Lincoln City and Sutton United earning replays against Football League opposition. The biggest stories came from Millwall, who beat Premier League side Bournemouth 3-0 and Plymouth going to Anfield and earning a replay courtesy of a goalless draw. This round saw sides making big changes, Liverpool put out their youngest ever side, and 11 changes for Bournemouth. It wasn't just the Premier League sides, with comments from Neil Warnock that he struggled to get out of bed for the game and making changes. Does this kind of attitude take the shine away from the FA Cup? We also discuss the attendances, with both good stories and the bad. There were some impressive away followings, including 9,000 Plymouth fans making the trip to Liverpool, and 5,000 Lincoln City fans at Ipswich. But there were some disappointing attendances, including 6608 at Hull to watch their game against Swansea and QPR vs Blackburn attracting just 7,482 fans. We finish the show by discussing the fourth round draw. The biggest ties are Middlesbrough vs Accrington, Derby County vs Leicester and Man Utd vs Wigan. We may see a couple more non-league sides in the next round, but we'll have to wait and see what happens in the replays. Apologies for not discussing the numerous football league stories - we will return for The 72 Show next week when these will all be discussed.

The Hipsters Guide to Europe #1
Anthony Kendrick is joined by Richard 'Hero' Hudson and our guest Nadz, from the V2 Forum. In this show we review the European football season to date, with the winter break starting (or about to start) in the European Leagues. We begin the show by side which have stole the headlines in the Bundesliga - Red Bull Leipzig. They have been accused of being the MK Dons of the German League, due to their unpopularity with their ownership. Has Ancelotti met expectations at Bayern Munich since replacing Guardiola? And also, we discuss life after Klopp at Borussia Dortmund and the underachievers in Wolfsurg and Borussia Monchengladbach. We then move across to Spain, where the big story is the incredible time Zinedine Zidane has had as manager with just two losses in 2016. Ronaldo has had what he has described as his best ever year with not only success with Real but winning the Euros with Portugal. Lionel Messi is the joint top goalscorer in La Liga with Luis Suarez, but we debate whether the side is more reliant than ever on their front three and Nadz gives his thoughts on who the best player at Barcelona is. We also discuss Sevilla, who have brought in former Chile manager Jorge Sampaoli, and Athletico Madrid who are in sixth place. Are they beginning to decline, and where will Diego Simeone end up? In Serie A Juventus are top of the league and look like heavy favourites to win another title. We discuss whether Pogba is a loss to them and if Higuain is worth the large transfer fee. Roma and Napoli have also impressed this season andare second and third, with Dzeko and Mertens in the goals. The Milan clubs are also discussed, with Inter Milan having Roberto Mancini, Frank de Boer and Stefano Pioli all in charge over the past six months. And at AC Milan, they have shown signs of improvement being fifth in the table and a very good young goalkeeper in Donnarumma. In Ligue 1, PSG have replaced Laurent Blanc with Unai Emery, who is under pressure. They have lost four games this season and sit third in the table but how much of this is down to the manager and how much down to the losses of David Luiz and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Nice sit top of the table after a long unbeaten run, with Mario Balotelli the star of the show. Another striker who has had redemption is Falcao at Monaco, who sit second. There are a number of good young attacking players there including Anthony's FIFA Career Mode pick. Finally, we mention the Dutch Eredivisie with Feyenoord sitting top. This league has a history of developing players and we discuss our picks, with Nadz springing a surprise with a 36 year old. And in Turkey, an Istanbul side sit top against all the odds but their manager is not interested in comparisons with Leicester, he would prefer to be compared with Southampton, and we reveal why.

There were wins for Leeds over rivals Reading, and Huddersfield won twice in a few days beating Bristol City and Burton Albion. At the bottom of the table Cardiff beat Wolves 2-1 to move out of the bottom three. In League One we discuss the continuing plight of Bury and whether they can do anything to turn around this run of eleven straight losses. Nick also mentions his club of the week, Shrewsbury who picked up a win at Millwall. And it was a good week for MK Dons, beating their biggest rivals Wimbledon and qualifying for the third round of the FA Cup after beating Karl Robinson's Charlton. The big result at the top of League Two was Plymouth recovering from a three game losing streak to beat third-placed Doncaster Rovers. Wycombe also picked up their fifth win a row, beating Notts County who have now lost five in a row. Newport remain bottom of the league after their game was called off due to a waterlogged pitch. This is the fourth time this season, and the Football League are getting involved to try to improve the situation. We finish the show by discussing the FA Cup.

We open the show by discussing the Championship, where Newcastle lost to Nottingham Forest after being down to nine men, with both red cards overturned. We also discuss two 5-0 wins for Fulham and Norwich. Steve Bruce suffered his first loss as Aston Villa manager, a 2-0 defeat against Leeds. We then move on to discuss Barry's career, in which he played for a number of football league clubs, and how he continues to play at the age of 43, and is reportedly the oldest player to appear in this season's FA Cup. The FA Cup Second Round saw three Non-League sides beat Football League opposition, in Barrow, Lincoln City and Sutton United, turning over Bristol Rovers, Oldham Athletic and Cheltenham Town. The incredible game which saw Wimbledon score four goals to come back from 3-0 down against Curzon Ashton is also analysed. We also look at a couple of the games which went to replays. MK Dons have brought in new manager Robbie Neilson, who will face former MK Dons manager Karl Robinson again in the replay after a 0-0 draw. Newport County and Plymouth Argyle will also have a replay, which will have more intensity with a third round tie at Anfield up for grabs. Also, the lowest ranked side still in the FA Cup are Stourbridge, who had their game against Northampton called off.

The 72 Show Episode 2.10 (with Liquid Football)
Anthony Kendrick and Nick Davie are joined by Danny Scott, from Liquid Football. In this show we discuss the possible management jobs for Roy Hodgson and Sam Allardyce in the Championship. We begin by discussing Danny's work with Liquid Football, which includes a podcast and magazine. This then moves on to Danny's club Nottingham Forest. We discuss their off-field troubles and the potential new ownership coming in by Christmas. Alongside this, we discuss the sale of Oliver Burke to Red Bull Leipzig for £13m and their most recent result, a 5-2 victory against Barnsley. The manager Philippe Montanier has set the target of top ten, is this realistic? In the Championship we begin by discussing Owen Coyle's Blackburn, who beat Newcastle 1-0 in the shock result of the weekend. Is this proof that Blackburn will not be in the relegation battle, or a flash in the pan? And did Newcastle do the right thing in resting six players ahead of their EFL Cup game with Hull? There were wins for the chasing pack, with Brighton, Reading, Birmingham and Leeds all winning 2-1. Leeds beat Rotherham as Peter Odemwingie was sent off and then tweeted an apology during the game. Kenny Jackett then resigned on Monday following his side's fourth loss in five, and only one win all season. In League One, Karl Robinson has come in as Charlton boss but did not take charge of his side's 1-1 draw with Sheffield United. At the top of the table there was only a win for Bolton, beating Northampton 1-0 to be the only side in the top eight. And hear why Danny saw the funny side in Peterborough's game with Oldham being called off. Millwall's Aiden O'Brien received a yellow card for his celebrations, scoring a Millwall winner in a 3-2 win at Bury. Should these types of incidents be punished? In League Two, an altercation between Michael Doyle and Christian Burgess saw the pair substituted at half time. This allowed Stevenage to claim their fourth away win in a row. Plymouth's bad run continued with a third loss in a row, allowing Carlisle to go top hanks to a Charlie Wyke hat trick to beat Mansfield 5-2. There were also wins for Colchester and Blackpool.

The 72 Show - Episode 2.9 (with Shane Lees)
Anthony Kendrick is joined by Nick Davie and Shane Lees for this week's episode of The 72 Show, in a show discussing Ian Holloway, Steven Gerrard and Tim Sherwood. We start the show by talking about the Championship - Newcastle have beaten Leeds but Rafael Benitez has said that there is room for improvement. Is he right? We also discuss the improvement of Derby County and Aston Villa under their new managers. Aston Villa are unbeaten under Steve Bruce but does Nick agree that they were unlucky to only draw against Brighton? Rotherham are at the bottom of the table, but who will join them in the relegation zone? Ian Holloway's return to QPR is also discussed. Should he be a pundit or a manager in terms of entertainment? Tim Sherwood is the Director of Football at League One side Swindon Town, but it appears he may be having more influence in taking team talks. Manager Luke Williams seems happy to share responsibilities, but do we think that this is right? Bury manager David Flitcroft has left the club after a poor run of form which sees the club just above the relegation zone, and is the league starting to take shape with top three sides Bolton, Scunthorpe and Sheffield United all winning their last two games? And Steven Gerrard does not appear in line for the MK Dons job after talks. But would it have been the best career move for him? In League Two, Colchester striker Kurtis Guthrie gave an interview in which he called his side a shambles, and that he's not there for a relegation battle. Colchester then went on to win their next 3 for their first win 10. Plymouth have lost their last two games after a 14 game unbeaten run. Is this the start of a downward spiral or is it just a blip? We look at the sacking of Alberto Cavasin, who leaves Leyton Orient only out of the relegation zone on goal difference. We finish the show by reviewing last week's FA Cup 1st Round Replays. There were three notable Non-League winners in Brackley Town, Solihull Moors and Eastleigh. We then look at the 2nd Round, with the three games to be televised announced. Curzon Ashton vs AFC Wimbledon is the top pick. Follow us on twitter www.twitter.com/v2Football Check out our website www.v2football.com

Anthony Kendrick and Nick Davie are joined by former midfielder and current Rotherham youth academy boss Matt Hamshaw. Nick asks Matt about his playing career, covering his beginnings at Sheffield Wednesday and playing at Hillsborough to the end of his career where he joined Matlock Town. Nick also asks about his time at Mansfield Town and Notts County. We then move on to his current role at Championship side Rotherham. We discuss their season and the recent appointment of Kenny Jackett, and can the side survive? They are currently bottom of the Championship. We then review the Checkatrade trophy. This season has controversially allowed U23 Category 1 Academies to take part. This has lead to what some argue is valuable experience for the young players, but some of the attaendances have been poor. 16 matches in the final round of games had less than 1000 in attendance. There has also been talk that Manchester United and Arsenal are interested in joining next season, if their schedules allow it. We then review the big stories from the football league. There was no Championship football due to the International Break, but two big stories have come out. Ian Holloway has left Sky Sports to become the new QPR Manager, and Jonjo Shelvey has a potential five game ban for allegedly racialy abusing Wolves's Romain Siass. We discuss just how tight both Leagues One and Two are. In League One, Charlton boss Russell Slade has been sacked following a 3-0 loss to lowly Swindon who move out of the League One relegation zone. We discuss Shrewsbury's 2-0 win over Oxford United which prompted Michael Appleton to say that his club are in a relegation dogfight. Chesterfield remain bottom of the table with their seventh straight loss, ending 4-1 to Sheffield United. In League Two, Blackpool beat Notts County 4-0. John Sheridan described his side's performance as totally inept and incapable of beating a pub team. We wish Barnet manager Martin Allen well with his heart surgery which will keep him away over the next week, but before that he saw his side play out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Grimsby Town. Carlisle also received their first loss of the season to bottom side Newport, which sees Plymouth open up a seven point lead at the top. We finish the show by mentioning the October Awards. In the Championship, Rafael Benitez won the Managerial Award and Fulham's Sone Aluko the player award. In League One, it was Bolton pair Phil Parkinson and Zach Clough and in League Two, Keith Curle and Jason Kennedy of Carlisle. Both Bolton and Carlisle had perfect records in October.

The Championship Round-up includes a huge 5-0 win for Brighton over promotion rivals Norwich, as well as Newcastle getting their sixth win in a row to stay top of the table. Derby County have brought back Steve McClaren who has won two games so far. We also discuss the sacking of Wolves manager Walter Zenga. Do chairmen give managers enough time, or are they too quick to sack them when the going gets tough? League One sees us look at where Karl Robinson will go following his mutual consent departure from MK Dons. He was the second longest serving manager in the FL72. Bury have lost their last six games to end up in the bottom half, but the table remains extremely competitive at the top of an unpredictable League One. Paul Hurst also fared well in his first game as Shrewsbury boss with a 1-1 draw with Southend. In League Two we review Andy's former clubs. Blackpool are in 15th, but with only four points separating them from the play-offs, is this achieveable? Carlisle remain the only unbeaten 72 side, and are second in the table.

Anthony Kendrick and Nick Davie are joined by Shane Lees for a special episode of The 72 Show. In this episode we debate the role of the media in the Football League.

We discuss whether they should be more involved, and whether they need to be with Sky and Channel 5 currently having the rights. The debate then looks at whether live games affect the attendances at grounds. Massimo Cellino caused a stir at Leeds last season by initially not allowing the Sky cameras into the stadium, but does he have a point? Should the Football League be on TV?

The 72 Show - Episode 2.5
The 72 Show this week is with Anthony Kendrick and Nick Davie. With no football in the Championship due to the International Break, all of the on-pitch talk comes from Leagues One and Two. This includes Sonny Bradley's remarkable game where he scored three goals and Northampton coming from behind to draw 1-1 with League One table toppers Scunthorpe. Off the pitch, we discuss a number of managerial changes. Would Chris Powell be a serious option to replace Nigel Pearson as the Derby County boss? At Aston Villa, Steve Bruce has had conversations but it is not yet a done deal. Neil Warnock has made a return to management, taking over at Cardiff City. But what happened to Russell Slade and Paul Trollope? Shrewsbury have also lost their manager Micky Mellon, who has taken over National League side Tranmere. Could have turned it around with Shresbury in 23rd in League One? We also review the Player and Manager of the Month awards in each division. Alex Neil (Norwich), David Flitcroft (Bury) and Derek Adams (Plymouth) won the Managerial awards, and Scott Hogan (Brentford), Josh Morris (Scunthorpe) and Jon Stead (Notts County) won the player awards. Our debate this week is about the new EFL Futures scheme. This is the idea that £750,000 will be allowed each season over the next three years for teams which develop homegrown talent. But is it the responsibility of Football League clubs to be developing the players due the failings of the Premier League? And would this make any difference in managers giving young players chances.

The 72 Show - Episode 2.4 (with Matty Roper)
Anthony Kendrick is joined by Nick Davie and Coventry fan Matty Roper. We discuss the recent resignation of Tony Mowbray and the off-field issues which have caused the team to go from the top of the table after 18 games last season to being bottom at the time of resignation. There are off-field issues at the club, which has played a large role in the decision. This leads to our debate of the week regarding the ownership of football clubs. The Fit and Proper Persons Test is currently used, but is this good enough? And is there anything more that we can do? The big stories in the Championship also concern managers, with Nigel Pearson's future at Derby unclear and Roberto Di Matteo sacked as Aston Villa manager. Did he need more time to turn Villa's fortunes around, and can they now look to fight for the play-offs? Will Steve Bruce be available to take over, if he doesn't take the England job? We also look at the top of the league, where the league is starting to take shape. In League One, Scunthorpe have taken a three point lead at the top after beating third-place Bury. We contrast the goalscoring of Scunthorpe with Bradford's approach, where they are unbeaten in second place with fewer goals but known for being a difficult place to play. Last time Rochdale were discussed on The 72 Show, they were in the relegation zone. Now they have won four games on the bounce. The performance of the weekend had to go to Cambridge United's goalkeeper Will Norris, who saved two penalties in injury time in a 2-1 win over Accrington. Find out why he didn't win the Man Of The Match award. And Leyton Orient have brought in new manager Alberto Cavarin, who has a wealth of experience in Italy but none in the Football League.

We discuss some of the big news in the football leagues, including Bristol City and their 18-year-old Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham who is the top scorer in the Championship. Coventry are having a miserable season and are the only side without a win in the football league. The first managerial sacking of the season has taken place, but is it a harsh one? In the previous show we analysed Accrington's start where they were just above the relegation zone. But wins against Portsmouth and Colchester have put them close to the play-off places. We finish with Nick's League Cup review, and we also look ahead to the draw. Newcastle play Preston and Leeds have a home tie against Norwich, which guarantees at least two 72 clubs in the next round.

We discuss the two clubs, along with how Rhodri getting into football and the effects of being compared with brother Ryan Giggs. The Championship promotion race introduces our Football League review. Can Huddersfield sustain their excellent early season form? And are Newcastle really coming into their stride and able to walk the league as we predicted. Aston Villa are also in the reckoning and Nick's beloved Brighton are in mid-table, following their first home loss since New Year's Day. League One sees us talk about Scunthorpe, who beat Southend 4-0 at the weekend. Northampton have also continued their incredible unbeaten run, stretching to 31 games. Coventry and Rochdale both drew their games to stay at the botom of the table, both without a win this season. We also look at the controversy surrounding the Bristol Rovers vs Swindon re-arranged match. The game was postponed due to heavy rain, but the fans are being charged £25 to watch the rematch. Is this acceptable? League Two sees Plymouth and Portsmouth on four and five game winning streaks respectively. They are now in the top two places after stuttering starts. Luton dropped to third with their first loss of the season. We look at Blackpool, who have dropped from being a Premier League side to a League Two side. Can they drop any further? In our debate of the week, we compare English football with European football. This is based off two comments. Firstly, Walter Zenga said that Wolves are the biggest English club in Italy. The main debate comes from comments from Huddersfield manager David Wagner, claiming that the controversial tackle from Aaron Mooy is a red card in Germany, but in England it isn't. Is English football different to that of Europe?

Going into the season, Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday were both among the favourites to win their respective divisions but have disappointed. And who could have predicted the incredible seasons that the likes of Northampton, Burton Albion and Brighton have had. (Nick maybe?) Finally, we discuss The 72 Awards which were voted on using Twitter. There were six categories, for best goal, player, young player, manager, game and finally the biggest overachiever. In all of the awards we have a difference of opinion, but a decision is made using the votes cast on Twitter. We also announce the winner of the competition to predict the play-off winners.

We then move on to discuss the Champions League final, played between Wolfsburg and Lyon and discuss European football. We often hear in the media that women's football is more followed in the USA, but is this also the case in Europe? We also discuss a name which Tarra believes should have won the Player of The Year instead of Izzy Christiansen.

"Can Liverpool bounce back?"
Anthony Kendrick is joined by Dan Tracey and Nick Davie to discuss the final week of the Premier League season. The title race and battle to stay in the Premier League may have both been over but there were still stories to discuss. Manchester City secured a top 4 spot with a 1-1 draw at Swansea, and Southampton completed an impressive season finishing in 6th place. We also discuss the future of relegated sides Newcastle United and Aston Villa, who may both have a bright future despite their relegations. Also off the field, the drama was at Manchester United with the bomb scare, which was left behind following a training exercise conducted by an external security firm. Liverpool put all their eggs into one basket by playing youngsters in the league and focussing on the Europa League. Could this come back to haunt them next season as they now have no European football. Will this have a negative impact with regard to signing top players, or a positive one as it allows them to focus only on the Premier League next season? Sevilla also get a mention, having won three Europa League cups in a row. Spanish domination is also present in the Champions League, as we preview the final between the two Madrid sides. We also look at the other final on Saturday, between Crystal Palace and Manchester United for the FA Cup. We end the show by looking at the England squad for the Euros. At present, the squad has 26 players but this must be reduced to 23 which will be decided on the 27th May. Does Marcus Rashford deserve to be one of the 23, and do Wilshere and Henderson deserve their call-ups after their injury-hampered seasons? We also discuss the argument for including Jermain Defoe in the squad.

The 72 Show - Episode 12 (with Ashley Carter)
Anthony Kendrick is joined by Nick Davie and Ashley Carter in this episode of The 72 Show. We preview the play-offs in each division, discussing who we expect to win promotions in their respective divisions. We also reveal the results of our twitter polls, in which we asked our followers which sides we expected to get promoted. This episode also features some of the other news stories which came from the final day of the football league. Middlesbrough and Burton Albion both finished second in their divisions to get automatic promotions, and Blackpool and Doncaster join Crewe and Colchester in being relegated from League One. Change has been promised at Blackpool with a full review into how the club is run, so is there hope for the club? Finally, we look at how the play-off systems work and discuss alternatives. Is there an argument that the play-offs should be scrapped altogether, and the team that finishes highest deserves to go up? The number of teams which get promoted and relegated from each division is questioned, including revisiting a previous debate where we concluded that three teams should be relegated from League Two. Our interview this week is with Ashley Carter, who is making a documentary about former Derby County captain Shaun Barker. You can find out more information about the documentary on their twitter account @ShaunBarkerdoc.

The entire first section of the podcast is dedicated to Leicester's title win. How big is this achievement? Is it comparable? Did they get lucky? Can they keep it up next year? Will Leicester's win be good for the Premier League? Will they be good in Europe? Where will they finish next year? When will we actually wake up? A small section is carved out for Tottenham as worthy runners-up. Can they keep improving? Could they be a shock force in the Champions League? In Part 2: It's quiz time! This week see's the return of Hero's quiz, where guests work together to try and figure out the answer. How hard can it be to describe Lazio? Is that really Karen Brady's name? Are we absolutely useless at this? In Part 3: The biggest news gets discussed including the Champion's League semi's; will City get Atletico in the derby or is it revenge time against Real? Who will survive; Newcastle, Sunderland or Norwich? Is Newcastle's position deceptively weak? Have Norwich sleepwalked into a relegation? Are Sunderland favourites?

Anthony Kendrick is joined this week by Nick Davie, Dan Tracey and Richard 'Hero' Hudson. We have a new quiz, organised by Richard in which each of the players have to describe various things associated with football, have a laugh at the one who really struggles to get to grips with it. The Premier League title race may be all but over with Leicester only needing one more win, but there are still unresolved issues. The relegation battle continues with Norwich, Sunderland and Newcastle United all looking to avoid the drop, and the top four battle is also discussed. We also look at the FA Cup final which will be between Crystal Palace and Manchester United, and the Champions League. Is getting a 0-0 draw in the first leg good enough for Man City, and can Bayern overturn a 1-0 deficit against Athletico Madrid? Both semi final second legs are next week. Finally, we have two debates this week. Who is the better striker, Man United's Marcus Rashford or Man City's Kelehi Iheanacho? We reveal the results of our twitter poll, is it swayed by Rashford being English? Our other debate this week is the Bundesliga, with it likely that Mats Hummels will join Bayern Munich, can Borussia Dortmund ever compete and is this right? Is the German league as perfect as we seem to think looking on it from the outside? Finally, congratulations to Tarra Scott of West Ham Ladies who has won our interview of the season.

"Will Arsenal Bottle It?"
In Part One: The team talk about the major news of the week including Jon Moss's diabolical performance at Leicester v W'ham; was it as bad as it has been made out? What should the rules be on grappling in the box? Also with Ronny Deila confirmed to be leaving Celtic at the end of the season what does this mean for Scotland's 'biggest' club? Who will they get in? Is Ranger's return good for the SPL? Could they win it next year? In Part Two: the race for the title is back on, but surely Leicester can't be caught now? With Vardy out and a horrendously tough set of fixtures the draw at home with W'ham could be the turning point for the title race. Are Tottenham the best side in the league? Has public opinion turned on Leicester? In addition, with the top four still open, can Arsenal truly bottle it and not just not win the league but drop out of the top four altogether? Or is this where Arsenal are most comfortable? Could City drop out instead? In Part Three: Finally the boys sign off with a big discussion about the FA Cup; is this the worst semi-final's ever? Neither United or Everton's fans seem to want to win to damn their beleaguered managers and Watford-Palace threatens to be a as dull an affair as it sounds. Or is this Pardew and Adebayor's year?

"Are Man City Favourites for the UEFA Champions League?"
Welcome back to the V2 Football Podcast! Man United have triumphed in their FA Cup tie away to West Ham; but will it be enough to keep Van Gaal in the job? Is it enough success or is it just a golden handshake? Would 5th place and an FA Cup win be a good season for United? What about beleaguered Everton manager Roberto Martinez; is he hanging on by a thread? Would an FA Cup win save him? Or is he damned by their dismal Premier League campaign? Finally will Antonio Conte be a good fit for Chelsea? Can he keep hold of their biggest players in the summer? How many seasons can they go without top four football? West Ham's Olympic Stadium deal has been made public and it's only brought about more question. Though unquestionably a good deal for the resurgent Hammers is it a good deal for football and the country as a whole? Is this a death gong for Leyton Orient? Big goings on mid week in the Champions League as Man City reach their first ever UCL semi-final and holders Barcelona are knocked out by Atletico Madrid. Can City win it? Are they now among the favourites? What went so wrong for Barca? Will this be Zidane's saving grace, Pellegrini's coup de grace, Guardiola's triumph or Simeone's Magnum Opus? Is the top four as wide open as everyone says it is or is it all but decided? Can West Ham or Man Utd pip city to the post? Finally who will join Villa in the Championship and who will be the least damaged by relegation; Newcastle or Sunderland? Will it help Newcastle to go down?

"Is the European Super League Footballing Treason?"
Welcome back to the V2 Football Podcast! In part 1: The lads wrestle with the idea of a European Super League or Champions League Wildcards. Do some clubs have a divine right to be in Europe's top competitions? Do fans just want to see the big clubs play each other? Is it footballing treason? The FIFA election also gets tackled; will Gianni Infantino be a good President? Can he fix FIFA's ills? Or is it just another false dawn? In part 2: The team looks at the Premier League goings on and asks the age old question; why are Arsenal such bottle jobs? After defeats to Man Utd's youth team and Swansea their title hopes hang in the balance yet again, but why does this happen season after season? Is it Wenger or the players? Louis Van Gaal's United legacy is fiercely debated as well; has he done well to bring through the kids? Or was it just forced by injuries? Will they go on to do good things at United? In Part 3: With only Arsenal faltering massively in the last round of European fixtures have English teams turned a corner in Europe? Are we taking the Europa League seriously? Could we have an all English final? You can follow us on twitter @v2football or check out our Facebook page.

Which strikers should England take to the Euros?
Anthony Kendrick is joined by Dan Tracey (realfootballman.com) and Richard 'Hero' Hudson for this episode of the V2 Football Podcast. We review the return of European football, with losses for Chelsea and Manchester United. Can they turn it around in the second legs?

The show is ended on a discussion on the Premier League title race, which could be a four horse race between Leicester, Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City.

"Why Do We Hate English Sportsmen So Much?"
In Part 1: The team discusses Gary Neville's move to the Valencia dug-out. Will Monday Night Football ever be the same again? Who can fill the pundits void? And perhaps most importantly how do we think he'll fare? Do you think he'll last more than two years? The lads also ask the question: Why can't we support the Englishmen? What makes it so hard for the English public to get behind English athletes. Tyson Fury, Lewis Hamilton, James Degale, Wayne Rooney, Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy... Is it the sportsmen or is it the public? In Part 2: Our resident FIFA Academic Shane gives his take on the ongoing crisis at FIFA: With the organisation posting massive losses for the first time since 2001 and with 2 more arrested and 16 more indicted the beleaguered governing body is moving to expand the World Cup to 40 teams. Is this a good decision? How much impact will it have? Is this more corruption and dirty politics in FIFA? Is it a money based decision? Or has FIFA finally changed and is doing this 'for the good of the game'? The team debate whether or not they think the World Cup expansion is a good idea and whether or not it's simply more foul play. This week see's a big quiz in the style of Family Fortunes!

Have City and Chelsea performed to the standard? The group also has it's most passionate debate yet when the 40 man UEFA team of the year shortlist is announced.

Sparks fly as our panelists disagree wildly on the status of the 'best league in the world'. In part 2: The lads talk about the goings on in the Premier League, namely: what the hell is going on? Leicester top, Chelsea near the bottom, why has the EPL gone so mad? Can Leicester keep it up or is this a false start? Who can go on and win it? Will anyone break the top 4 nut?

"No One Cares About England."
Welcome to the V2 Football Podcast! Part 1: The team looks at Man United passing the £500 million revenue mark and ask whether or not this is actually a good thing. Is Football too dominated by business? Is the trade off, of better quality games for worse off fans, worth it? After last weeks dismal Premier League round of fixtures the lads wonder; is the Premier League boring now? Has it lost the entertainment factor? Is La Liga or the Bundesliga better to watch? In Part 2: The team look at worldwide sport as a whole and asks whether or not it's going through a crisis; Doping in Russia, athletics in a mess, doping in cycling, match fixing in cricket and FIFA corruption. Is football safe from this? Does it only happen off the pitch? Wenger thinks their is cheating in football, is he right? Part 3: With two blockbuster friendlies against Spain and France coming up the team asks; does anybody actually care about England anymore? There's very little hype, but what's causing this apathy? If England win will they get credit? Or will it only be noticed if they lose? Also with Chelsea languishing in relegation form is this the year where the 'glass ceiling' of the premier league is broken and a new team forces it's way into the top 4? Can Tottenham's English young guns do it? Or will they tire after january? Can West Ham, Southampton, Everton or Liverpool mount a challenge? Or will Leicester do the ridiculous?
