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.

Spurs were excellent against Chelsea in an FA Cup semi-final for the ages but it just wasn't enough as the championship-winning mentality of Antonio Conte's side won out on the day. Arsenal attempt to salvage their season as they get stuck into Manchester City setting up an all-London final. And El Clasico takes the crown for the best game of the weekend as Barcelona defeat their fierce rivals Real Madrid 3-2.

As well as that, Rumour Has It focuses on Ched Evans potentially going back to Sheffield United. And Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza sees Harry Redknapp say mean things about Agbonlahor, a reaction to a handshake, and Swindon Town's Director of Football distance himself from Swindon Town.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where Dan was the closest, which is saying something.

As bad as they are at the minute, I don't think anyone could've predicted that Arsenal would falter at the hands of Crystal Palace. Spurs continue to show their class by continuing to win, even if it's probably all for nothing. And Ronald Koeman proves that Shakespeare's Leicester aren't impenetrable by beating them 4-2.

As well as that, Rumour Has It focuses on Neymar's boots. And Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza sees Tony Adams getting a job in La Liga, while Andrew gets a specially personalised birthday message.

Apr 4, 2017

Chelsea fall to Crystal Palace and the resurgence of Ivory Coast's own Wilfried Zaha. Arsenal and Man City decide that neither team are worthy enough of taking all three points away from their game. And the Merseyside derby is rough on most days, but Ross Barkley was hellbent at the weekend.

As well as that, Rumour Has It focuses on the latest scandal in Chinese football. And Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza sees the only mention of the Scottish Premiership on the podcast, and Aubamayeng's attempt at a luchador.

Mar 29, 2017

In what was a drab 90 minutes of football, the most noteworthy thing to come out of Ireland vs. Wales was Neil Taylor's challenge on Seamus Coleman, and whether or not there should be a more sever punishment for tackles like this. England fans make headlines in their Germany friendly, while Jermain Defoe's comeback against Slovenia proves fruitful for Gareth Southgate. And Tottenham Hotspur legend Paulinho comes good for Brazil.

As well as that, Rumour Has It focuses on how will take the Netherlands manager job and whether that's Louis van Gaal. And Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza looks at a name for San Diego's new football club, Eamon Dunphy not knowing what elbows are, and the power of Arsene Wenger.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where everyone was way off. Standard.

Arsene Wenger knows his future but no one else does as duelling planes fly over The Hawthorns in West Brom's 3-1 victory over the Gunners. While Man City's 1-1 draw with Liverpool was Pep Guardiola's greatest day in his life, Andrew wasn't too impressed with it. And we shine a light on what Antonio Conte has done with his exceptional back three.

As well as that, Rumour Has It focuses on whether Wayne Rooney will be off to Everton or West Ham. And Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza looks at Mohammed Anas' post-match interview slip-up, and Arjen Robben being subbed off for Bayern Munich.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where Andrew wasn't close, while Colm and Dan were at least half right.

Chelsea beat Manchester United in the quarter final of the FA Cup as N'Golo Kante continues to lay claim to the player of the season nod. In the Premier League, Hull City continue to defy all odds by picking up vital points with Everton castoff Oumar Niasse. And was Barcelona's 6-1 win against Paris Saint Germain the greatest comeback in football history?

As well as that, Rumour Has It focuses on former England manager Roy Hodgson being linked to the now vacant Norwich City job. And Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza looks at Jamie Carragher getting cross with his Redknapp namesake, the cancelled PSG documentary and poor planning from Arsenal.

Mar 7, 2017

Liverpool prove too strong for Arsenal as they school them 3-1 at Anfield. We try to get inside the head of Tyrone Mings and whether or not he meant to stamp on the head of Zlatan Ibrahimovic during Bournemouth's draw with Man United. And Kane and Alli's relationship moves to the next level thanks to a glorious goal celebration in Spurs' victory over Everton.

As well as that, Rumour Has It focuses on Arsene Wenger leaving Alexis Sanchez out of the Arsenal starting 11 and whether or not he'll go in the Summer. And Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza looks at a Russian politician's plan for football hooliganism, Jamie Redknapp forcing Graeme Sounness to do the unthinkable, and Dan being threatened by professional football players.

Feb 28, 2017

Leicester City had a whirlwind week as the story of Claudio Ranieri came to an end before the club went onto beat Liverpool on Monday, looking like the champions they are in the record books. Zlatan Ibrahimovic saves the day for Manchester United again with a late goal that sees them surpass Liverpool as the most successful team in English football. And Chelsea continue their dominance after a first half scare at the Liberty Stadium.

As well as that, Rumour Has It focuses on who will replace Claudio Ranieri as Leicester City manager, and Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza looks at Crystal Palace fans being idiots, a Real Madrid goodie bag, and a goalkeeper who is cross at goalline technology.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where we think we may all win next week.

Feb 21, 2017

Sutton United just weren't good enough against a lacklustre Arsenal, but the main story happened on the bench as Wayne Shaw tucked into a pie as his last act with the club. Lincoln City continue the magic of the cup as their last minute winner against Burnley sees them eye up Wenger's boys. And the lads look at what's to come from this week's Champions League ties, on top of the turmoil at Barcelona.

As well as that, Rumour Has It focuses on Mark Clattenburg and his jet-setting to Saudi Arabia, and Joey Barton's Banteriffic Banterman Bonanza includes Chilwell's fear of throw-ins, the man the segment is named after, and of course, Wayne Shaw of Sutton United and the now infamous pie incident.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where I might as well not finish this sentence.

Feb 13, 2017

Who would've thought it? — Leicester City, after the dream season of last year, go from bad to worse, but is it time to start asking questions about the players rather than manager, Claudio Ranieri? Sadio Mané's finally back and Liverpool definitely needed his talents against a lacklustre Spurs at the weekend. And Sunderland are back to their losing ways as Southampton (and future Liverpool star, Gabbiadini) run riot. 

As well as that, Rumour Has It focuses on Ian Wright's apparent conversation with Arsene Wenger and some mixed signals, and Joey Barton's Banterman Bonanza includes Carlo Ancelotti's eyebrows, someone having a pint on the sidelines, and a few cock-ups on Sky.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where Dan came close...we swear.

AND more importantly it's the 100th episode of The Football Huddle. Naturally for such a monumental occasion, we pulled out all the stops and brought back a few old voices to commemorate the event.

Feb 8, 2017

Arsenal's title hopes are definitely finished with their 3-1 loss to Chelsea and, true to form around this time of the season, Arsene Wenger's future at the club is a contentious issue with fans. Claudio Ranieri is another manager that seems under threat as Leicester can't get going at all and are beaten 3-0 by Man United. And Big Sam mightn't be the man to lead Crystal Palace to safety after all as Sunderland beat them 4-0.

As well as that, Rumour Has It that West Brom leaked Saido Berahino's eight week drug ban and Joey Barton's Banterman Bonanza includes Katherine Jenkins, Gary Neville and Robbie Keane.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where a few bets were close...at least.

Jan 31, 2017

While it seems like everyone's finally coming to the realisation that the FA Cup's lustre has more or less died, the competition lives on in the results that benefit the likes of Sutton United and Lincoln City. Spurs luckily escaped the same embarrassment as Liverpool by narrowly defeating Wycombe with a late goal. The two Manchester sides took the cup a little bit more seriously than a few of their Premier League counterparts by fielding stronger sides and won their ties, respectively. 

As well as that, we look at the potential goings and comings on Deadline Day in this week's Rumour Has It and Joey Barton's Banterman Bonanza goes the competitive route, this week.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where a lost episode puts the table into question.

Jan 17, 2017

While Everton are one of the Premier League's more inconsistent sides, they were impeccable against Man City, beating them 4-0 with Tom Davies coming out a superstar. Man United and Liverpool battled to a 1-1 draw where we saw the excellence of Zlatan and the disappearance of Paul Pogba. And on a more sombre note, Watford legend Graham Taylor passed away last week, but the tributes for the man during Watford's game against Boro were lovely to see.

As well as that, we look at the potential of another club in Paris and Juventus' brand new badge in TWO BRAND NEW SEGMENTS.

Jan 10, 2017

This was a particularly boring FA Cup Third Round as more or less all the big boys went through, but not without a few stories attached. Wayne Rooney equalled the goal-scoring record of Sir Bobby Charlton as Man United stuck four past Reading. Bournemouth were one of the few Premier League sides that were truly crushed by minnows as Eddie Howe decided to field a very weakened side. But more importantly than all that, Dan Murphy's Colls were victorious in the FA Vase.

As well as that, the world team of the year was announced and FIFA has expanded the World Cup in 2026 to include 48 teams which has divided The Huddle.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where we're starting to question this new way of doing things.

Jan 3, 2017

The Premier League fixture list was crazy over the past few days, but the lads try to tackle it head on, with a smile, mainly because manager of Manchester City, Pep Guardiola, would want it that way.

Despite beating Burnley, Guardiola didn't appear overly happy and questions are being asked about his mental state. Man United have been lucky lately with referee decisions, but Mike Dean certainly stole the show in their match against West Ham. And Tony Pulis has transformed West Brom into a goal-scoring, winning side, with Euro 2016 hero, Hal Robson-Kanu, even getting in on the act at the weekend.

All this plus Getting Bling With The Football Huddle where no bets were successful. Surprise.

Dec 28, 2016

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
