This week on the pod, Bobby & Eoin discuss the rather lack-lustre summer transfer window, so far.  They also have a little fun at the expense of everyone’s favourite former US President. Enjoy, and leave your comments below!

    Awesome job as always, Bobby and Eoin.

  2. remember, Drogba was a late bloomer. It took him time to develop his game, it may be the same with Lukaku, but can Lukaku develop like Drogba did while in Chelsea. With Sturridge’s success during the Olympics he is too valuable to be let go.
    I think Mr McMahon is right but in the sense that, Chelsea is veering from getting more certifiable players who have offensive and defensive skills. Big guys with total skills which is why I thought Hulk would be sooner to get than Oscar from Internacional de porto allegre.Drogba is offensive but we forget how often he tracks back, deflected corners. Kalou is another who does as he is told. He was great on the defensive side and could attack.
    This is also the post Mourinho era in completion and we are seeing the truth of that change. I like Lukaku, but Chelsea should have gotten LAss, and Hulk, with Marin. And then get Hazard to pair with MAta and Ramires. Oscar was the wrong move. Mata will learn to drop back and defend better, and let HAzard roam with Torres. Mikel can work with Lass, and Chelsea’s backline are fine.

    I just hope AVB stops that squatting on the side.

    I think Liverpool will continue to be poor. Liverpool look like they will leak goals more this season. Liverpool need Aquilani and let him go to Fiorentina. The Swansea style needs more than just Gerrard. I like Suarez but I know Borini from ROma, he will not be defensive and Luis Enrique looks even worse on the wings defensively, and I know it is preseason but it looks iffy.
    Carroll should have never left Newcastle. CArroll has to accept the Dzeko role at Man City. When situations arise be ready to head the ball in the back of the net, but sit on the bench in other scenarios.

    You are so right, breath of fresh air, is overused.

    If PSG don’t win a trophy in France, their may be a malaga 2 in the works.

  3. RUBICON says:

    Lukaku def needs minutes ANYWHERE to develop. The kid is more like Andy Carrol as opposed to Drogba whose first touch is as soft as a baby’s bottom.

    Should Torres come good, Chelsea has a very impressive and deep side But for me, the most exciting player to watch blooming will be their midfielder Ramires who has speed, tackling, passing, finishing and technique. And let’s not forget the likes of Essien and Mikel in that holding role as well… that’s a deep squad.

    As for Liverpool, they did display some of that Swansea passing in their EL qualifier this week and I think Joe Allen or a similar player is on the way. As for Borini, I think he has a 50/50 chance for success or going the way of Babel or Riera. I think Rodgers’ style may be a bit too fast paced for Charlie Adam unless he plays a deep lying playmaker position. But then again, Gerrard’s legs ain’t gettin’ any younger.

    Finally, you can’t compare Malaga to PSG. Baptista/VanNistlerooy/DeMichelis/Cazorla vs Ibra/Silva/Lavezzi/Pastore?

  4. Drogba was a late bloomer as a striker because he played as a midfield player.
