The Football Huddle

The Football Huddle, is where Colm Ahern, Andrew Knowles and Dan Murphy put their heads together and attempt to deconstruct the beautiful game, pass by pass. They might fail while doing so, but at least you can chuckle at their ineptness.

It has been a tumultuous Christmas period for managers as Alan Pardew is no longer in charge at Crystal Palace, leading to former England man, Sam Allardyce, getting the job and fighting mascots. Bob Bradley has been given the boot at Swansea after sealing his own fate by saying the West Ham game might decide his future. And Chelsea are good, basically.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where the new rules have provided us with a winner! YES!

Dec 21, 2016

Arsenal suffer a big set back with two losses on the bounce, meaning Wenger's biggest fans become his detractors and seek his dismissal. Kasper Schmeichel shows just how much Leicester have missed him by performing some terrific saves and helping his team get a point against Stoke. Zlatan becomes Zlatan.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where changing the rules did absolutely nothing.

Dec 13, 2016

Pep Guardiola's tactics weren't up to snuff against champions Leicester City as Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and co. were on fire against his Manchester City side. Loris Karius did an interview mid-week that had English punditry up in arms, or at least the two Neville brothers, and the Liverpool keeper wasn't in great form at the weekend either as his side drew 2-2 with West Ham. And Crystal Palace and Hull City saw Robert Snodgrass take evasive action and still be awarded a penalty.

As well as that, the Champions League knockouts saw Arsenal hilariously draw Bayern, Falcao is a footballer again and Robbie Brady could be on the move.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where we're changing things up.

Dec 6, 2016

Bournemouth do the unthinkable and sink Jurgen Klopp's Reds after being behind by two goals. Things get heated at the Etihad as Chelsea beat their title rivals 3-1 while Fernandinho and Sergio Aguero get sent off in the process. And we at The Football Huddle are proud to say we never doubted David Moyes as Sunderland begin their title charge by beating last year's champions.

As well as that, The Championship had plenty of fisticuffs too, Nice might be on top of Ligue 1 and El Clasico was shown live for those watching illegally. 

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where we may have to change the rules or something.

Nov 29, 2016

At the end of the game, Bob Bradley's Swansea City took the points from an under fire Alan Pardew and his Crystal Palace side that are struggling. Chelsea continue their dominance by beating their London rivals, Spurs, 2-1. And Jose Mourinho kicks a water bottle and gets sent off but it's probably a big plan to take the heat from his players, or something.

As well as that, tragedy struck the footballing world as Brazilian side Chapecoense are involved in one of the biggest disasters in football in a very long time. The Football Huddle's thoughts are with everyone involved at the club.

Nov 22, 2016

Arsenal were very lucky to get a point against Manchester United at the weekend, as Olivier Giroud saved Wenger's boys from defeat. Wayne Rooney enjoys a drink or two at a wedding until 5am while on international duty. Yaya Toure shocks the world by not only starting for Manchester City against Crystal Palace, but by scoring.

As well as that, Newcastle United look like they're never going to lose again, the Madrid derby is a one-sided affair and Borrusia Dortmund are back in the title race as they beat Bayern Munich by a goal.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where some are close, others are nowhere near and all are wrong.

Nov 15, 2016

Ireland have done the unthinkable and now find themselves on top of their World Cup qualifying group after a James McClean goal that saw off Austria. England's 3-0 win over Scotland doesn't tell the whole story as there is still unrest over the performance of their players against a weak Scotland. And Wales are suffering from a Euro 2016 hangover as Serbia get a point off them.

As well as that, and we know this is international week, TIM IS BACK.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where one of us won some money. Incredible, we know.

Nov 8, 2016

Antonio Conte has moulded his Chelsea side into one of the more formidable outfits in the league as they destroyed Everton at the weekend in a pure masterclass. Liverpool did much the same to Watford, but still have frailties at the back. And Jose Mourinho has gone on the offensive while some of his players sit on the sidelines because he has a famous tennis player friend.

As well as that, Dortmund mount an attack in the Bundesliga, Spain welcomes a new challenger, and Cork City stop a Dundalk double.

Nov 1, 2016

Spurs are as strong as they've ever been at the back but with only Vincent Janssen up front, they're struggling to be prolific. They're neighbours, however, are currently flying up the table as Arsenal demolished Sunderland...eventually. And Liverpool continue to prove there's something to the Kevin Keegan style of football.

As well as that, not much has changed in The Championship, not much has changed in Europe, but Roberto Firmino has great teeth.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where we obviously didn't win any money because the world is a hurtful place.

Oct 25, 2016

Jose Mourinho got chatty with Antonio Conte at the end of their duel in Stamford Bridge, but that couldn't stop his homecoming being a sour one as Chelsea destroyed Manchester United 4-0.  Southampton have been impeccable this season after a blip at the beginning, and added to Pep Guardiola's woes at the weekend by holding his Man City to a draw.  Leicester City and a Christian Fuchs wondergoal brings the club's Champions League back to home soil.

As well as that, Newcastle United tear up The Championship, Dundalk are the best in Ireland, and Barcelona players are allergic to water.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where things are getting familiar, fast.

Oct 18, 2016

The debate of whether or not Theo Walcott is a striker rages on, even after the Arsenal man scores twice against Swansea to lead his team to glory. Chelsea beat champions Leicester convincingly at Stamford Bridge as Ranieri's men can't seem to get a win away from home. And Maarten Stekelenburg puts in a heroic performance to help Everton bat away Man City's attacks, as he saves two penalties to grab a point for the Merseysiders.

As well as that, Inter Milan's Icardi has the wrath of the Ultras, Steve Bruce is back in management and Wes Hoolahan does what he does best.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where the table doesn't lie.

Oct 12, 2016

Ireland pick up an ugly six points against Moldova and Georgia as Wes remains The Boys in Green's main creative threat, but he can't play more than one game in a few days, still. Wayne Rooney was dropped by Gareth Southgate as managers seem to finally be finding out that he's a shadow of the player he once was. 

All this plus Getting Bling with The Football Huddle where, once again, someone is celebrating a victory. We're coming good, lads.

Oct 4, 2016

Tottenham Hotspur prove they're a force to be reckoned with this season as Poch's men beat Man City 2-0 and Son continues to prove he's a more than worth while replacement for The King, at the minute. Francesco Guidolin becomes the first managerial casualty of the Premier League this year as his Swans narrowly lose out, thanks to the best penalty-taker in the sport, James Milner. And Burnley are unlucky to lose against Arsenal at Turf Moor, due to a Laurent Koscielny wonder-goal.

As well as that, Roberto Di Matteo becomes the latest Aston Villa manager to be thrown out the door, Barcelona and Real Madrid give Atletico an opening in La Liga, and Mario Ballotelli is never boring.

All this plus Getting Bling with The Football Huddle where we hope that international week will some how give one of us a win.

Sep 27, 2016

Gary Cahill and David Luiz lead a terrible Chelsea defence into a horrendous performance that saw Sanchez and Ozil take apart their London rivals. Liverpool's defensive frailties are being hidden by their attacking threat of six midfielders that can't stop scoring. And Leicester concede from corners, as the champions get destroyed by a Manchester United without Wayne Rooney in their line-up

As well as that, Sam Allardyce is no longer England manager after being caught on a hidden camera drinking a pint of wine and looking for £400k, Francesco Totti turns 40, and Cristiano Ronaldo has an awful tongue on him.

All this plus Getting Bling with The Football Huddle where normal service has been resumed.

Sep 21, 2016

Troy Deeney and Watford stun Manchester United at Vicarage Road as they beat Jose Mourinho's team of superstars 3-1 which brings The Special One's time at the Theatre of Dreams into question. Manchester City continue to impress as Kevin De Bruyne is heralded as the second best player in the world. And Ronald Koeman may very well be the signing of the Summer as Everton go from strength to strength with their 600-game man, Gareth Barry, netting against Middlesbrough.

As well as that, Frank de Boer's employment as Inter Milan is under threat from Diego Simeone, Cavani is leading the charge to get PSG back on top and Joey Barton likes a flutter.

All this plus Getting Bling /Barton with The Football Huddle where we've actually won you money. I know. We're as surprised as you are.

Sep 13, 2016

Pep Guardiola wins the first English battle between him and his nemesis, Jose Mourinho, but action on the pitch steals the headlines as Man City make United look like schoolboys, even with Claudio Bravo's European-inspired, seat-of-your-pants, goalkeeping. Leroy Fer of all people scored against Chelsea to help them get a draw against the London club, even if his goal could've been seen on the moon. And while West Ham's new home is a glorious piece of architecture, their football is crumbling as Watford beat them 4-2.

As well as that, moving to Liverpool was the biggest mistake of Mario Balotelli's life and Joe Hart did an impression of Claudio Bravo in his Torino debut.

Sep 6, 2016

Liverpool's Adam Lallana saves England and new manager Sam Allardyce from a lambasting in the media as his goal saw England pick up three points in their first World Cup qualifying game against Slovakia -- but Wayne Rooney can play where he likes. Ireland appear to have taken 14 steps back from their Euro 2016 heroics as they scrape a 1-1 draw against Serbia, while their Group D counterparts, Wales, demolish Moldova. 

As well as that, Scotland pick Malta apart as Robert Snodgrass gets a hat trick, it remains goalless in Northern Ireland and Czech Republic tie and Deadline Day has come and gone.

All this plus Getting Bling with The Football Huddle. You know the score by now.

Aug 30, 2016

Pep Guardiola has Manchester City passing the ball around like Barcelona as Sterling, Silva, Nolito and company all prove their might against a lacklustre West Ham. Marcus Rashford nets for the red half of Manchester late-on as Mike Phelan's Hull City just lose out to United. And Chelsea demolish Burnley in a performance befitting of champions.

As well as that, the Bundesliga is competitive, Atleti are out of the Spanish title race and Dan regales Colm, Andrew, and you, the listener, stories from Soccer AM.

Also, Getting Bling With The Football Huddle is quickly becoming very reminiscent of last season.

Aug 23, 2016

Old Trafford's prodigal son of Paul Pogba returns and lives up to the hype, fitting in well with the superstar mentality that Mourinho is bringing back to the club. Liverpool's second game of the season is a shambles as Klopp's men can't convert their possession into goals as Burnley beat them 2-0 and some shadiness of Andre Gray's past is brought up. And the lads have never heard the words, "new directive," more than they ever have before.

As well as that, Bolton find themselves in the strange position of first in League Two, it's business as usual in La Liga and Biguain is packing in the goals as well as on the pounds.

Also, Getting Bling With The Football Huddle...isn't off to the best of starts...

As well as that, Getting Bling with The Football Huddle is off to the start that almost everyone anticipated.

Colm, Andrew and Dan are back with the first episode of The Football Huddle of the 2016/17 football season. After a month long break between Ronaldo lifting the Euro 2016 trophy and the Zlatan's goal in the Community Shield, the lads have some predictions for the season ahead and they're here to give you them, in full.

As well as their outlandish crystal ball prophecies, they look at all the comings and goings in the Premier League, whether Leicester will replicate last season, how Arsenal will finish in fourth, whether Hull will do better than 20th, how the Jose/Pep rivalry will unfold and if Spurs will Spurs it.

As well as all that, they return reinvigorated and ready to set the world alight with their betting prowess in Getting Bling With The Football Huddle. Will Colm retain his crown? Is Andrew always destined to be the bridesmaid and never the bride? Will Dan win a single bet? 

Join us as we look at what the football season has to offer for 2016/17.

Jul 12, 2016

Colm, Andrew and Sully are back with a final episode of The Huddle for the season to look at Portugal's tournament performances and whether they were worthy winners of Euro 2016.

As well as that, the lads look at France's inability to break their final opponents down, the moth infestation in Saint-Denis and review the the highs and lows of what's been a divisive four weeks of football.

Oh...and you get to hear our terrible predictions from the beginning of June. Dear God...

As well as that, the lads look at France destroying Iceland, Germany narrowly beating out Italy, Portugal somehow ending up in the last four and preview the semi-finals.

As well as that, the lads look at the potential of Belgium potentially reaching their potential, Italy showing why we were all wrong to doubt them, Portugal & Croatia contesting the worst two hours in the history of the sport and Gareth McAuley scoring again for Northern Ireland, but this time, it's in the wrong net.

On top of that, this mammoth podcast sees the lads previewing the chances of the last eight teams in the tournament.
