The Hand of Pod

Football legends don’t get much tastier than this! The Highbury & Heels squad was honoured to welcome former Leicester, Everton, Tottenham, Barcelona and England striker, Gary Lineker.

From the despair of Diego Maradona’s Hand of God to seeing his beloved Foxes win the Premier League, we discussed it all with the man who fulfilled the bet of all bets… presenting Match of the Day… in his boxers! Get stuck in.

Premier League Grades & the New Season…

As the new season approaches, I’m joined by Oliver Wilson to hand out grades for last season and also look at how they’ve improved their squads in this insane transfer market that has gone totally balls up nuts! Who is Grade A material and who is failing miserably?

You can find Oliver @O_J_Wilson. Follow me @soccerdiva. Also this coming season, I’m joining the Gooner Girls Ramble podcast for some Arsenal chat…and much more! Check out www.thegoonerramble.com for deets!

Landon the Legend…

2014 MLS Cup - New England Revolution v Los Angeles GalaxyIt’s Landon Donovan’s last press conference. He has just won another MLS Cup with his beloved LA Galaxy. It’s a fairytale ending. He’s had a picture book career. He has given everything to club and especially country.

What an honor to see him play his last professional game. What a privilege to be at his last LA Galaxy presser. He looks tired. He’s ready to walk off into the sunset as a champion.

Verbal Memo | The Bite, the Bale & the Special One…

1931Dracula There’s no biting in football…unless you are Luis Suarez of course! Liverpool’s star player is in hot water once again and the biggest question is what will this legendary and historical club do with him?

Unless you’ve been living under a gigantic rock, Suarez took a healthy bite out of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during a game at Anfield over the weekend. It’s not the first time Suarez has done this to an opponent. In April 2011 while playing for Ajax, he sunk his teeth into PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal. He received a seven-match ban and it was the last time he ever played for Ajax, a club with as much rich football history as Liverpool. This is unacceptable behaviour from a player who doesn’t even need to act like Mike Tyson on the football pitch.

A Conversation With…Followtonians

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.
