Crisis FC! - AFR Voice - Ep7
Since AFR last loosened up its larynx, there was a series of high profile exits from the football juggernaut. Pulling his ripcord first was David Beckham, who looks set for a safe and particularly well-paid landing in France. Next up was Roberto Di Matteo and Mark Hughes – both unceremoniously ejected from West London into no man’s land. As you’ll hear, Rafa Benitez shouldn’t get comfortable with his in-flight movies just yet either as we wonder whether dastardly Roman Abramovich is determined to drive Chelsea into the ground.
We locate the black box and disassemble all that madness before giving a whole new set of fresh football baggage a considerable shake-down – will LA Galaxy’s MLS Cup success mark the swansong for Landon Donovan? Is it possible to apply the term crisis to half the Premier League’s teams? And, will Arsene Wenger always remain the perpetual bridesmaid of football? We’ll also cover the AFC Wimbledon-MK Dons show down, hopscotch across the big European Leagues and reveal why you must not, under any circumstances, invite Manchester City’s Aleksandar Kolarov over for Christmas.
