LIVE FROM LUNA PARK, SYDNEY AUSTRALIA WITH CSKA SOPHIA GARDENS CAPTAIN JORDAN LLOYD ... THIS IS A TOUCHLINE RANT - this week we talk Fans vs Players and ask whether it’s acceptable for players to give it back to fans that are giving them abuse from the stands. We also discuss the Granit Xhaka situation at Arsenal and argue why we think he was fully justified to do what he did. We then travel to Derby (without drink driving) and look at the disgusting situation happening there with Richard Keogh, Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett. We then sink our teeth into the premier league to see who is doing well, who is surprising us and who needs to do a lot better. Thank you Luna Park and thank you Sydney for 2 amazing live shows. You were incredible
This week we were once again a threesome of hosts as Mitch joined us live from Sydney Opera House in Australia to talk Manchester City vs a wounded Southampton, Arsenal and Wolves both needing a win but knowing that one of them will be left disappointed, United having a little bit of momentum behind them and asking if they can keep that up against Bournemouth. We then round up all the other premier league games and have the best listener feedback you’ll hear in any hemisphere. ATR
This week we look ahead to one of the biggest games in Europe that people are imagining is a forgone conclusion - Manchester United vs Liverpool. We round up the rest of the premier league including Norwich needing to bounce back, Newcastle momentum, West Ham silently being pretty good and Sheffield United have the steel to upset Arsenal. We discuss the sickening racist abuse suffered by some of the England squad in Bulgaria. We then re-open the doors of Kind club - now sponsored by the wonderful @KindCardiff - to let in Coventry City, Atletic Club and Jermaine Jenas. AUSTRALIA WE ARE COMING. ATR
This week we talk how Chelsea are actually far better than we thought they would be. Tammy Abraham not throwing away his shot. Newcastle - dreams, memories and reflections - Imagine scoring that goal for the club you grew up supporting against Manchester United at home! Powerful stuff. We also get excited about England and downhearted about Wales. Then we re-open the doors of kind club to let in some positivity. We are ATR. See you next week
This week we were joined by CSKA Sophia Gardens manager Craig Robertson to discuss our game of the weekend - Liverpool vs Leicester. We look at the other games including Manchester United probably losing to Newcastle, Brighton maybe getting an upset against a sad, Spurs, Bournemouth potentially beating Arsenal and Chelsea deserving more credit. We take a peek at the Bernardo Silva racism cauldron. We re-open the kind club and welcome in vegan Chris Smalling. Shoutout CSKA and shoutout The Wallich.
This week we talk Manchester United vs Arsenal who are two sides that simply refuse to get into any sort of rhythm and ask which one is most likely to win as well as if either of them can get into back the top 4 this season. We also look ahead to the other premier league games whilst asking what the hell is wrong with Spurs, are Man City still a wounded animal after the Norwich game (which would spell danger to the rest of the league), if Liverpool can keep up their momentum in the league, if Everton need a change of manager to stop stagnating plus if Wolves can finally get their first league win of the season against Watford or if the 8-0 hammering the Hornets received from Man City will galvanise them. We also look ahead to the next round of Champions League fixtures, have some feedback from our listeners and Galatasary. ATR
This week we were joined by Jamie McGowan from Welsh Ice to talk start up businesses and the wonderful things he does. We look ahead to Chelsea vs Liverpool and ask if this is the game that Liverpool show they are a team here to stay. We ask if Manchester City can bounce back against a potentially on the rise Watford, we round up the rest of the premier league fixtures and make what will probably turn out to be awful predictions. Then we head to Skinners Corner to talk about young players and potential as well as the pressure that comes with it. We also play Jamie’s brand new game - Kit or Campus - making him the first guest to create their own game. We then all go home. Luton Town May come up once or twice too. ATR
This week we were joined by Dan Tyte, acclaimed author and MD of Working Word, to look at the returning premier league and highlight Liverpool, United, Arsenal and Chelsea as being involved in our games of the weekend. We also look at the power of PR in the modern game. We also see how Cardiff City are doing and look back at the beautiful homeless World Cup. ATR
This week we were very lucky to record at Ikea in Cardiff - you guys are amazing hosts - to talk the return of international football and why its only exciting at summer tournaments. We also have a look at La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1 to see what’s been happening with our European friends. We also talk the continued disgusting scenes of racism that have taken place around the world of football and have a quick glance at the premier league to see how everyone is getting on.
