Hello and welcome once again to the ProTipster Sports Betting Podcast.
It’s international break time, but fear not we won’t bore you to death with international talk we dig deep to find some of the more interesting matches to talk about and we have a look back at what went down in the footballing world over the weekend.
We kick off proceedings by having a go at Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho because he’s just a bully now at this stage. We speak about his attack on Luke Shaw and as well about his recent meltdown in a press conference akin to Rafael Benitez “Facts” press conference when in charge of Liverpool. We speak about their display against Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup where he praised Matic and nobody else, yet praised all his team when they lost to Sevilla mid week. He’s a hard nut to crack Mourinho, playing one character for the public and one in private but the cracks are beginning to show and we can’t see hm being at Old Trafford for the long term.
Next up we speak about Jose’s nemesis Antonio Conte and how they got on in the FA Cup against Leicester City. The Blues were probably better but not by much and something to note, the last time they met Leicester in the FA Cup they went on to win it. Chelsea weren’t great, but Leicester weren’t either and it was more the Foxes getting their tactics wrong than Conte getting his right.
Southampton won a match under new manager Mark Hughes. That’s just about a mention. Imagine if he manages to keep Southampton up and his old team Stoke City go down? He’d probably like that a lot, then again many football fans would probably like that a lot.
West Brom did what West Brom are really good at, losing yet again. You have to feel sorry though for Baggies fans, it’s not their fault that the last two managers have been atrocious and really the only people to blame here are both managers and a board who don’t seem to have a clue about running a football club.
Birmingham City beat Hull 3-0. The last time Birmingham City scored three goals at home the Spartans were trying to take on Xerxes. And what a momentous occasions both of those were. One was made into a comic book and a film, hopefully the same will be done with this famous Blues victory.
Mo Salah is the best footballer to ever play the game of football ever. That’s pretty much a fact now that all football fans around the world will admit. Even Manchester United fans. Sure they have Alexis Sanchez, but he’s just a little bit less gooder than Salah. Yes, gooder isn’t a word, we’re using some poetic license.
Portuguese legend Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 50th hat trick. But it was in La Liga, so y’know, it doesn’t count as much as it would if it had been scored in the Championship away to Norwich.
Bayern Munich lost! There is hope that the Bundesliga might be saved from the cluches of Bavarian capitalism, banking and auto manufacturing. Who beat them? The team owned by the Austrian soft drink makers. Or is it an energy drink? We ask these questions and more besides. Not only did Bayern lose but the worst team in the team by a country mile, Koln won.
Juventus slipped up over the weekend drawing with Spal while Napoli are back in the race following a narrow 1-0 win over Genoa.
We get speaking then about some of the best fixtures from the upcoming week of football, we have a couple of international friendlies to speak about and a couple of fixtures from League One and Two in England as well.
