Jon and Kevin hit a patio and look at the upcoming two weeks. It’s now or never to move up the standings or drop points to your closest rivals. They review some of the blasts from the past who suddenly popped up with a lot of points in the gameweek that just finished. It’s a good time to end the season with Manchester players. United will want to send Ferguson off in style and City just have a couple of easier games. This is also the week that Jon sweats bullets as Newcastle face the relegated QPR.
The beers this week were Steamwhistle and Boddingtons.
Matt is joined by the incredible Pompey Canuck to discuss the week’s European football action, including his amazing prediction that Aston Villa would finish the week ahead of Newcastle in the table. The guys also preview the weekend’s Premier League fixtures and the prospects of an exciting final day in The Championship.
Jon and Kevin reunite for a recap of how exciting the relegation battle is turning out to be and they both agree that Benteke at Aston Villa is the player every fantasy manager needs. He’s either going to carry Villa to safety or the Villa fans will join the Newcastle fans in hyperbolic panicking. It’s a double game week for West Brom, Chelsea, Manchester City, Wigan, Swansea and Tottenham, so they discuss who you should take from those sides as well as a few teams with an easier end to the season and players of value.
Matt is joined as ever by Pompey Canuck in a puneriffic review of the week in football with particular tribute to the idiocy of Luis Suarez. The guys look back at a stunning week for German football and congratulate perennial bridesmaids Central Coast Mariners on finally being the brides with a well deserved A-League final win. There is also a big week in the Premier League with a preview of every game. Enjoy
This week Jon overschedules his week and in a moment of madness decides to go it alone. Still, not quite as mad as Suarez taking a bite out of Ivanovich, but don’t worry as the lads won’t go missing for ten weeks!. Manchester United claim the title early and look to break the point record with a team that has been inconsistent in terms of line-up and was generally written off at the beginning of the season. There might actually be something to having a consistent presence behind the bench and team buy-in. Jon takes a rambling examination at who you might want to pick up from the champs, and reminds you about the upcoming double-gameweek.
No beer this week as it was recorded during a work break. There was, however, terrible coffee.
Matt is joined by Pompey to congratulate Cardiff on their promotion to the English, or is that Welsh Premier League after years of near misses. The guys review the promotion and relegation battles throughout the English league pyramid as the season draws to a dramatic conclusion, as well as previewing an interesting week of Premier League football which could see Champions crowned and two relegation spots taken.
This week Kevin and Jon meet over lunch, and record the second carcast. The first was never heard, but as punishment they sweat out a podcast during the first nice sunny day Ottawa has seen. The current gameweek was still underway at the time of recording, but the lads look ahead a few weeks and talk about a few players who will be involved in the next double gameweek. It’s a good time to start filling your team with value substitutes and to have expensive options when your core stops performing.
Matt is joined by Pompey Canuck to review one of the best weeks of football action in memory, with stunning goals and climactic conclusions to the second leg ties in this years Champions League quarter finals as well as those of the Europa League. The guys also look ahead to another big weekend in the Premier League and FA Cup. There is also discussions on if Barcelona is becoming a one-man team, has Tony Pulis run out of time a Stoke City and will Rafa Benitez be at Chelsea next season. With the A-League season rapidly drawing to a close Matt reluctantly give kudos to West Sydney as the make the Grand Final in their inaugural season and looks with dread at the potential match-up with Melbourne Victory in the decider. Enjoy
Kevin and Jon avoid any potential bar fights this week and talk about which Man U player they’re going to get (or already picked up). A few teams play twice and a few others don’t play at all, so be wary. Even though they play twice it’s probably a good idea to avoid Fulham defenders, but you should consider some West Ham guys. Whatever you decide on, it’s probably a good idea to get someone who plays twice.

Pompey Canuck is joined by a jubilant Matt to rejoice in Aston Villa’s Next Gen European success. The guys quickly move on the the seniors and look back at a big week of quarter final action in Europe which has left us with some very interesting 2nd leg games and also ask the question has Gareth Bale played his final game for Spurs? There is also preview what could be a season defining weekend in the Premier League at both ends of the table as the season warms up with the weather.
