Potato Salad, Old Cliches and New Year optimism

Jan 06, 06:47 AM
Happy New Year to all of our listeners across the globe - this is our first episode of 2021 as we look to put 2020 well behind us and vow never to speak of it ever again.

After ending the previous year with a bit of a whimper, David Moyes' men entered the new year in style by rocking up at Goodison Park and winning 1-0, courtesy of a late Tomas Soucek own goal. And if you didn't love the big man enough by now, he then confessed his love for potato salad during his post-match interview. What a guy.

On this week's show, James Jones, Will Pugh and Tom Edwards mull over that Everton win, briefly touch on the draws with Brighton and Southampton, discuss the rumoured return of Marko Arnautovic, thrash out their views on the upcoming FA Cup 3rd Round tie with Stockport County and, of course, compete in the brilliant Name That Game quiz. Can you count how many times James uses old and tired cliches to describe the FA Cup?

This week's opposition view is Russ from the Scarf Bergara Wore podcast, who chats with Will ahead of West Ham's FA Cup journey gets underway at Edgeley Park on Monday night.

Also this week, WSL expert and sports journalist Isabelle Barker joins the lads to discuss West Ham Women's appointment of Olli Harder as the new manager, as well as their chances of beating giants Man City in the WSL this coming weekend.

And finally, the lads chat about their Fantasy Premier League progress as Will bathes in accidental success, James wallows in accidental failure and Tom climbs off the bottom of the table for the first time in weeks.

As always, it's a cracker of a show and a superb one to kick 2021 off in style.
