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.

David Luiz was the hero of the day at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea beat once champions elect Man City 2-0, but the game wasn't without incident as Raheem Sterling was the victim of abuse from the Chelsea fans. Liverpool capitalise on Man City's failings, as they beat Bournemouth and now find themselves on top of the table. And Dan is convinced Cardiff City are staying up.

Harry Redknapp is king of the jungle, and River Plate are Copa Libertadores winners... at last.

Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features chat on some live mics, and the SAS.

And Win, Lose or Draw gets a little tighter. A little.

Dec 3, 2018

Thanks to some desire (and great substitutions by Unai Emery), Arsenal defeat Spurs in a North London derby with bite, Jurgen Klopp gets excited about the greatest derby goal of all time as Liverpool beat Everton 1-0. And Mark Hughes becomes the first Premier League manager to be sacked twice in a calendar year after drawing 2-2 with Man United.

The Euro 2020 and FA Cup 3rd Round Draws are made, with some exciting and dull ties scattered throughout both. 

Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features chat on a player who isn't actually dead, Sunday Supplement, and MULTIBALL.

And Win, Lose or Draw has become a one horse race. And there are no horses even involved. Absolute scenes.

David Luiz stars in Spurs' 3-1 domination of Chelsea at Wembley, Claudio Ranieri is back in the Premier League and bringing a new manager bounce to Fulham, and Man City aren't good enough for Pep in their 4-0 win.

Mick McCarthy is Irish manager (again) for a bit, and Dan's been to Germany to watch some football.

Paul Merson's Majestic Misadventures features chat on a terrible fourth kit, DJ Kilbane, and buses in Argentina.

And Win, Lose or Draw sees lack of faith in Spurs.

Nov 19, 2018

England beat Croatia, top their group, and grab a semi-final spot in the UEFA Nations League, whilst Ireland are pitiful against their six county counterparts.

As well as that, Paul Merson’s Marvelous Majestic Misadventures includes chat on Scudamore, DJ Kilbane, and an Instagram rivalry for the ages.

Plus, Harry Redknapp is in the jungle, so that deserves its own section, really.

Win, Lose or Draw has a Man City that refuses to let up.

Nov 12, 2018

Man City were the far, far better team on the day as they beat Man United 3-1 by outclassing them in basically every single way. Arsenal and Wolves nab a point each in a 1-1 draw at the Emirates. And Charlie Austin's post-match interview is the best moment of the season.

As well as that, attention turns to Dortmund's win, Barca's loss, and SUPER CLASICO! 

Win, Lose or Draw doesn't change loads because everyone went for the same thing the last time. Exciting.

Oct 30, 2018

Football was forgotten about at the weekend as Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha sadly lost his life in a horrible helicopter crash, Spurs don't match up to Man City in an NFL ruined pitch, and Arsenal only manage a draw against Crystal Palace.

And things are getting really tight in Win, Lose, or Draw.

Oct 22, 2018

Chelsea and Man United's 2-2 draw is overshadowed by Jose Mourinho's disagreement with someone called Marco Ianni. Man City continue to wreck opposition as they batter Burnley. And Cardiff City put four goals past Fulham.

Paul Merson’s Marvelous Majestic Misadventures features Jamie's dad, Sunday Supplement, and The Guv'nor.

And there's daylight again between the top of the table and the rest in Win, Lose, or Draw.

Oct 8, 2018

After rumours that Jose Mourinho would be out of a job, Manchester United defeat Newcastle United in a ridiculous comeback at Old Trafford. Arsenal continue to quietly pick up points as they demolish Fulham. And the best game ever turns out to be quite a timid affair as Liverpool and Man City draw 0-0.

John Terry and Thierry Henry might be taking the reigns at Villa Park as we get a Championship round-up, and we discuss the allegations surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo.

Paul Merson’s Marvelous Majestic Misadventures features Neil Warnock, obviously, and a photograph of England's lionheart.

And it's all getting a bit closer on Win, Lose, or Draw as we enter the Nations League this weekend.

Oct 1, 2018

Chelsea vs Liverpool is a terrific game of ball, topped off with a wonderful strike from Daniel Sturridge. Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba are in full meltdown as United lose 3-1 to West Ham. And Man City are still good, and their recent display involved their best player watching the game from the stands with a bored child.

A BRAND NEW SEGMENT DEBUTS! We've never done anything like this before, so we hope you like it! It's totally new.

And things get confusing on Win, Lose, or Draw because of last week's break.

Sep 19, 2018

A tired-looking Spurs suffer defeat at the hands of Liverpool, which leads Andrew and Dan to discussion on the future of Pochettino and where Tottenham go from here. Wilfried Zaha isn’t happy because he’s getting targeted by opposition players, but the lads enjoyed his post-match interview. And Chris Smalling comes good as Man United beat Watford 2-1.

And things are starting to get a little tighter on the Win, Lose or Draw league table.

Sep 10, 2018

Ireland get hockeyed by Wales 4-1 as they're completely outclassed on the pitch, but it's the off-the-pitch drama that grabs the headlines as Roy Keane has altercations with both Jon Walters and Harry Arter. England lose out to Spain 2-1 as they lack someone in midfield who can control the game. And it's agreed that the UEFA Nations League is actually a good thing.

And Win, Lose or Draw continues to provide excitement due to the fact that no one will pick the same team as anyone else.

Sep 3, 2018

We still mightn't know who the Watford manager is, but he's doing sometihng right because he has Deeney back to is best and has his team beating Spurs 2-1. Petr Cech not fitting into Emery's system at Arsenal despite the team's 3-2 victory over Cardiff. Chelsea, meanwhile, seem to be reacting positively to their new manager and the Sarri way.

Warren Barton’s Banterrific Banterman Bonanza (the first and probably last one ever) includes a crybaby, a lazy story, and a diving header in Germany.

And Win, Lose or Draw is making Colm look like he knows what he's talking about.

Mourinho goes full meltdown as Man United lose 3-0 to Spurs thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Lucas Moura, Wolves' midfield of Neves and Moutinho (as well as the hand of Bony) help them get a point against Man City, and Arsenal get their first win of the season while Mesut Ozil sits it out.

Joey Barton’s Banterrific Banterman Bonanza (the last one ever) includes a couple of crisp packets, and an excited Marseille fan.

And Win, Lose or Draw makes Colm look like a betting king, somehow.

Aug 21, 2018

Things start to unravel for Man United already as they lose to Chris Hughton's Brighton, Man City absolutely demolish Huddersfield Town and put six past them, while Chelsea outplay Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

Joey Barton’s Banterrific Banterman Bonanza (or maybe Paul Merson's Mad Magical Merriment) includes a wayward television in Bristol, and Lazio fans print out some backwards leaflets.

And Win, Lose or Draw looks at the cracker that is Leicester and Southampton.

Aug 13, 2018

Week one of the Premier League started as week 38 of last season finished, more or less, as all the bigger sides picked up points including a wonderful looking Liverpool, a fairly subpar looking Man United, and a Man City that didn’t even have to get out of second gear. However, in North London hasn’t started out for Unai Emery as he may have planned.

Joey Barton’s Banterrific Banterman Bonanza (although, a name change may be on the horizon) kicks off with a magic trick in Spain, a smoking room in West London, and a silly comment in the Sky Sports studio.

And Win, Lose or Draw begins with someone taking charge of the league table, and the risky predictions continue in week two.

Football is back (after a very, very, very short break), and that means The Football Huddle is back as well! With the Premier League season right around the corner, we bring you one of our favourite shows of the season: the BIG preview show.

Every single one of the 20 Premier League clubs detailed and discussed. Do Liverpool have enough firepower to dethrone Man City? How will Unai Emery change things at Arsenal? Is Fred the Red enough for United? And how about the three newbies: Wolves, Fulham, and Warnock FC? You won't get this anywhere else.

As well as that, we bring you the first Win, Lose or Draw of the season. Everyone's coming strong and correct out of the traps.

Let's go! FOOTBALL, FOOTBALL, FOOTBALL! EXCIEMENT (until Man City win 8 on the bounce and it's a foregone conclusion again)!

Jul 16, 2018

After a tournament of twists and turns, the World Cup 2018 is done and dusted for another four years, and it's come home to Jules Rimet's birth place of France.

Whilst it could be argued that Luka Modric and co. had the better of their opponents for a lot of the final, France ultimately proved they were the best team in the competition and won their second ever World Cup, 20 years after their first.

As well as that, the lads look at England's exit from the competition, the failure of the superstar, and some predictions that were made before a ball was kicked. 

Thanks for listening to our World Cup specials! We'll be back in a few weeks as we turn our attention to the Premier League. Exciting!

Jul 9, 2018

It continues to make its way back towards where it's from as England beat Sweden, but the lads argue whether it was comfortable or not. Roberto Martinez deserves some credit for Belgium's victory over Brazil, A Cavani-less Uruguay get beaten by France, and Croatia scrape through against hosts Russia.

As well as that, the trio look to the semi-finals, the destruction of a furniture store, and English fans being told what 'It's Coming Home' is in Irish.

The second round of the World Cup gave us quality, drama and all of the narrative! England, shock horror, win a penalty shootout at a World Cup after being in a slobberknocker with Colombia, while Kylian Mbappe has a star-making performance as France beat Argentina 4-3.

As well as that, Russia shock everyone but themselves as they beat Spain on penalties, Uruguay continue as the tournament's dark horses, and Nacer Chadli proves to be an unlikely hero.

As shocking as it is, Germany are out of the World Cup. But is it a shock? Really? England and Belgium field second string sides in an effort to get the 'easy' draw. And the group stages are done -- it's business time as we go straight into the knockouts.

As well as that this Football Cuddle looks at the eight ties that make up the second round and predict who'll make it through to the quarter finals.

Sure, Panama looked like one of the worst teams to ever play the sport, but England still got the job done and now turn their attention to the first test: Belgium.

Germany were mere seconds away from being knocked out of the World Cup at the hands of Sweden, but came back to defeat them 2-1 thanks to a glorious Toni Kroos free kick.

As well as that the lads turn their attention to the final group games in the tournament and try to predict who'll play who in the second round.

NOW we're in the swing of things.

Colm and Andrew look at Argentina's poor showing at the 2018 World Cup so far and how they can still qualify for the second round, Bobby Firmino coming off the bench to change the fortunes of Brazil against Costa Rica, and Iran coming close to getting something off of Spain.

As well as that, the lads look at the rest of the games from groups A through E, and give a little preview of what we can expect from this weekend's games including England vs Panama.

After a longer absence than we were planning, The Football Huddle is back with our big World Cup 2018 preview show!

Joking lol.

We look at England's relationship with the media, and how they fared against poorer opposition in their first game against Tunisia. Germany don't get off to the best of starts after losing 1-0 to Mexico, and Portugal vs Spain is an all-time classic.

As well as that, we give a general run down of the tournament so far and look at how the favourites aren't exactly setting the world on fire.

May 28, 2018

This Champions League final will be remembered for many things, but most will probably never forget the mistakes of young Liverpool keeper Loris Karius. But, let's not forget the wondergoal of Gareth Bale -- a Gareth Bale that isn't too sure of his future.

As well as that, the lads discuss Sergio Ramos' tactics, his tackle on Mo Salah, and whether or not you'd have him on your team. And Cristiano Ronaldo found a way to get his name out there by asking for the trophy to be named after him. Nice thought, isn't it?

On top of that, Fulham find themselves back in the Premier League after defeating Aston Villa in the most expensive game in world football, while Rotherham and Coventry are also victorious in their respective finals.

But, what you're really here for, is to find out who won Win, Lose or Draw. There's no need for a recount. We have a decisive champion.

May 22, 2018

It may have been Antonio Conte's last game in charge at Chelsea, but still, Eden Hazard's penalty was enough to defeat Man United and see the club win their eighth FA Cup. Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, wasn't too fond of their play style, but what's new there?

There's been a lot of managerial changes in the Premier League postseason including Pellegrini for Moyes and another departure for Big Sam, but Unai Emery is stealing the headlines as he's all set to take the Arsenal job under the nose of Mikel Arteta.

Gareth Southgate has named the 23 players that will be in England's World Cup squad and there were a few notable omissions and inclusions.

And, as well as that, it's going down to the wire. Win, Lose, or Draw will be decided on the final game of the season like all good title races.
