When I was a wee lass growing up in the 80’s, there was nothing more fun than watching Everton and Liverpool battle it out for supremacy in the old First Division and F.A. Cup. What a team Everton had at that time. From Gary Steven, to Trevor Stevens, Peter Reid, Kevin Sheedy, Andy Gray and Graeme Sharp, the Toffees undoubtedly had one of the most entertaining teams in the land. They were creative, they were built strong in midfield and they were technically gifted upfront. Simply put, they dazzled the Goodison crowd with their magic.
Since joining Arsenal, Robin van Persie hasn’t put prolific back-to-back seasons together for the North London club. Is it fair to say he will not have the same success next season and that now is the time for Arsenal to cash in on the Dutchman? How would Arsenal shape up tactically without him? And what is the scoop with Theo Walcott and his unrest? Could Arsenal afford to lose either or both of these players? What has become of the Gunners? What is the identity of this team? Why does everyone always want to leave?
Just a few months ago, Harry Redknapp was the soup de jour in English football. Fast forward a few months and not only did he lose out to Roy Hodgson for the England job, but he was also replaced by Andre Villas Boas as manager of Tottenham.

Kristan Heneage from ESPN and FourFourTwo joins us for “A Conversation With” where we dig a little deeper and dissect the managerial changes. First up, Andre Villas Boas and Spurs.

An exciting Copa Libertadores comes to a close and Corinthians win their first ever title versus Boca Juniors. In “A Conversation With Roger Gonzalez” we talk all things South American, with a focus on Argentina and the legend that is Riquelme. The talented midfielder has called time on his career with Boca and the big question is what happens next? Will Riquelme retire or will he find a new challenge at another club having given everything to Boca over the last few years.
