Last week on The Football Round Up I was joined by David Ronney, Luke Barry and Bryce Donaldson to discuss the week’s football news.
Here are the highlights. Remember that you can listen to The Football Round Up every Thursday at 3pm on Radio ENRG.
- In the first part of our Champions League Match Day 5 review, we looked at Celtic’s defeat to Barcelona, Leicester City’s remarkable achievement of qualifying to the last 16 with a game to spare and Spurs’ horrendous campaign, which was put to an end by Monaco.
- In the second part of our review, we analysed draws for Arsenal and Man City. Both teams look likely to qualify in 2nd place but will they be good enough to advance any further? We also look at a record breaking win for Borussia Dortmund, an injury for Gareth Bale and the problems that are mounting for Carlo Ancelotti at Bayern Munich.
- After his side were denied two penalties in their 1-1 home draw against Arsenal, Jose Mourinho stated that Manchester United were the unluckiest team in the Premier League. Elsewhere in the league, Chelsea won their sixth straight game, Liverpool were held by Southampton and Yaya Toure’s return inspired Manchester City to a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace.
We discussed the action in our Premier League review
- The next clip is from the previous Football Round Up. Following Germany’s 8-0 win over San Marino, Thomas Muller said he didn’t understand ‘why fixtures like these have to take place’. It sparked a furious reaction in San Marino but did Muller have a point? We discussed.
- And finally, also from a previous show, we reacted to Scotland’s 3-0 defeat to England in the World Cup Qualifiers.
