The 72 Show Episode 2.10 (with Liquid Football)
Anthony Kendrick and Nick Davie are joined by Danny Scott, from Liquid Football. In this show we discuss the possible management jobs for Roy Hodgson and Sam Allardyce in the Championship.
We begin by discussing Danny's work with Liquid Football, which includes a podcast and magazine. This then moves on to Danny's club Nottingham Forest. We discuss their off-field troubles and the potential new ownership coming in by Christmas. Alongside this, we discuss the sale of Oliver Burke to Red Bull Leipzig for £13m and their most recent result, a 5-2 victory against Barnsley. The manager Philippe Montanier has set the target of top ten, is this realistic?
In the Championship we begin by discussing Owen Coyle's Blackburn, who beat Newcastle 1-0 in the shock result of the weekend. Is this proof that Blackburn will not be in the relegation battle, or a flash in the pan? And did Newcastle do the right thing in resting six players ahead of their EFL Cup game with Hull? There were wins for the chasing pack, with Brighton, Reading, Birmingham and Leeds all winning 2-1. Leeds beat Rotherham as Peter Odemwingie was sent off and then tweeted an apology during the game. Kenny Jackett then resigned on Monday following his side's fourth loss in five, and only one win all season.
In League One, Karl Robinson has come in as Charlton boss but did not take charge of his side's 1-1 draw with Sheffield United. At the top of the table there was only a win for Bolton, beating Northampton 1-0 to be the only side in the top eight. And hear why Danny saw the funny side in Peterborough's game with Oldham being called off. Millwall's Aiden O'Brien received a yellow card for his celebrations, scoring a Millwall winner in a 3-2 win at Bury. Should these types of incidents be punished?
In League Two, an altercation between Michael Doyle and Christian Burgess saw the pair substituted at half time. This allowed Stevenage to claim their fourth away win in a row. Plymouth's bad run continued with a third loss in a row, allowing Carlisle to go top hanks to a Charlie Wyke hat trick to beat Mansfield 5-2. There were also wins for Colchester and Blackpool.
