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.

A dodgy penalty and a Divock Origi strike help Liverpool to Champions League glory, in a horrible final against Spurs, in Madrid. Does that quality matter, though? And where does Poch go from here?

As well as that, we look at Eden Hazard's performance in Chelsea's 4-1 win over Arsenal in the Europa League final, and whether Sarri is out the door.

Thank you for getting your friends on board to listen to Colm, Andrew, Dan, Stephen, and Sully over the last 200 episodes of The Football Huddle. You're all wonderful people. Mwah xxx

The Premier League is over and that means it's time for The Football Huddle to dissect the season's events.

Man City are Premier League champions; Liverpool narrowly miss out on glory after heroics from Van Dijk and co; did Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal, Man United have good seasons or not?

Huddersfield, Cardiff City and Fulham are relegated; was Xherdan Shaqiri the signing of the season? Did West Ham flop? Did Angus Gunn surprise? We attempt to answer all these questions and more.

And it's time for the final Win, Lose or Draw. You already know how it turned out, don't you?

Liverpool cut it fine, but a Divock Origi late winner against Newcastle saw them jump Man City (at least until they play Leicester). Crystal Palace prove too much for Warnock and Cardiff as they'll be playing in The Championship next year. And Spurs and Chelsea have ended up in the top four, but we're not sure anyone knows how.

Paul Merson's Marvellous Misadventures features Bielsa on spygate 2.0, and Eden Hazard in a car.

And Win, Lose or Draw sees Colm pick up an important win as we near the end of the season.

Apr 29, 2019

Man United draw 1-1 with Chelsea as no team in England wants 4th place, Liverpool and Man City keep piling pressure on each other as we near the end of the league season, and the PFA Team of the Year is basically alright.

As well as that, we look at controversy in The Championship that saw Leeds give Aston Villa a goal, and bounce around Europe to see PSG whimper their way to a title.

Paul Merson's Marvellous Misadventures features Roy Keane in a studio, Ray Houghton in a car, and Spanish football clubs on Twitter.

And Win, Lose or Draw is looking tasty as bums begin to squeak.

Apr 15, 2019

Liverpool beat Chelsea 2-0 thanks to a Mo Salah goal of the season contender, Manchester City overpowered Crystal Palace 3-1 to continue putting pressure on their championship rivals, and Brighton are in a real relegation fight after losing 5-0 to Bournemouth.

Paul Merson's Marvellous Misadventures features Shay Given's dinner, too many standers, and a QR tattoo.

And Win, Lose or Draw, again, doesn't change. Whatsoever. We need to get better at this predicting lark. Still. Again.

Man City saw off Brighton with ease in their semi-final, whilst Troy Deeney and Watford had to go the extra mile against Wolves. In the Premier League, Liverpool were able to grind out yet another victory with some late goals against Southampton.

Allison didn't have the best game, but that didn't matter as Hugo Lloris stole the show for the wrong reasons as Liverpool beat Spurs 2-1 with a late winner; Cardiff City didn't get the decisions against Chelsea and Neil Warnock got cross; and Watford come close to raining on Ole's full-time employment parade.

Paul Merson's Marvellous Misadventures features the pope, and even more Colin Wanker.

Mar 27, 2019

The qualifying for Euro 2020 has begun, and has begun well for Ireland: six points from the first two games... and a tennis ball protest for former chief executive of the FAI (and current EVP) John Delaney. And England are very good.

And Win, Lose or Draw sees us trying to remember the result of Man United and Wolves.

Mar 11, 2019

There were three incidents involving fans at football grounds at the weekend which leads us to chat about what happens now, Newcastle continue to impress as of late with a 3-2 win over Everton, and there's another argument about Henderson.

We also chat about Sergio Ramos in the stands and Man United young boys on the pitch in the Champions League.

Paul Merson's Marvellous Misadventures features a Countdown contestant and jump that was much larger than Lopes first thought.

And Win, Lose or Draw comes with some lovely analysis from Andrew as he charts his rise up the table.

Feb 25, 2019

Whilst Man City ended up beating Chelsea on penalties in the League Cup final, the real story of the match revolved around Sarri and Kepa's disagreement over whether or not the keeper should be substituted. It was terrific.

As well as that, Man United and Liverpool was as exciting as many expected, Claude Puel is no longer Leicester manager, and a dodgy corner helped Burnley defeat Spurs.

And Win, Lose or Draw is actually becoming a competition. A bit.

Feb 18, 2019

Man City beat a heroic Newport County 4-1 whilst Phil Foden does well (once again), Wolves see off Bristol City with Matt Doherty proving pivotal, and you already know the score of Chelsea and United, don't you?

PSG see off Man United, Spurs are strong against Dortmund, and we look to this week's Champions League ties involving Man City and Liverpool.

Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures is heavy on Declan Rice talk because it felt like the right place to discuss it.

And Win, Lose or Draw features some wrong predictions.

Feb 13, 2019

Manchester City and Sergio Aguero absolutely embarrassed Chelsea at the weekend 6-0, Liverpool bounce back after their few draws with a win against Bournemouth, and Tottenham refuse to lay down.

Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features some delights as always.

And Win, Lose or Draw features a phoenix rising from the ashes.

Feb 5, 2019

Manchester City beat Arsenal quite comfortably as Sergio Aguero scores a hat trick to keep the pressure on Liverpool, the tributes for Emiliano Sala are felt, and Everton are in a serious rut.

Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features a cat, a message to Lineker, and a headbutt.

And Win, Lose or Draw might be on the turn.

Jan 28, 2019

The FA Cup 4th round has come and gone, and has seen some big big boys lose out to lower league opposition, with Millwall beating Everton and Wimbledon defeating West Ham. 

As well as that, the (pretty boring) January transfer window is almost done and dusted, but there's still a few rumours to discuss as we welcome Adele back onto the show.

Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features a wrestling sock and a follow-up on the Huddersfield story from last week.

And Win, Lose or Draw actually provides zero excitement because Colm made a horrible mistake.

Jan 20, 2019

Chelsea seem at a bit of a loss as Arsenal beat them 2-0 at the weekend, but can Gonzalo Higuain be the catalyst for change? The lads discuss whether Mo Salah is clever or shady as diving comes into his game again in Liverpool's 4-3 win over Palace. And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to prove he's the greatest manager of all time as Man United continue their winning ways against Brighton.

As well as that, The Championship round-up is dominated, once again, by Marcelo Bielsa, and a glorious presentation.

Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features penis size and someone who Sky thought was the next Huddersfield manager.

And Win, Lose or Draw actually provides some excitement. Some.

Jan 14, 2019

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer beats Mauricio Pochettino, so is obviously the frontrunner for the Man United job after wonderful performances from De Gea and Pogba. A Declan Rice goal separates West Ham and an Ozil-less Arsenal. And David Wagner and Huddersfield Town part ways in a mutual decision.

As well as that, the trio discuss the delights of Leeds United, spies, and Martin O' Neill, in their Championship round-up.

Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features a lot of chat on the relationship between Rio Ferdinand and Mike Ashley, Bolton's chairman, and Neil Warnock's stance on Brexit.

And do we need to tell you what's happening in Win, Lose or Draw? You know by now.

Jan 7, 2019

After an extended Christmas break, The Huddle is back to have a look at some of the select action from the FA Cup, and have a chat about why we don't particularly care anymore.

As well as that, Colm and Andrew have a look at some of the bigger moments over the Christmas period that we didn't talk about like Liverpool going onto be champions and then not when Man City beat them.

Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features a golden steak and an angry Jason McAteer.

And absolutely nothing changes in Win, Lose or Draw. Again.
