The 72 Show - Episode 2.9
Anthony Kendrick is joined by Nick Davie and Shane Lees for this week's episode of The 72 Show, in a show discussing Ian Holloway, Steven Gerrard and Tim Sherwood.
We start the show by talking about the Championship - Newcastle have beaten Leeds but Rafael Benitez has said that there is room for improvement. Is he right? We also discuss the improvement of Derby County and Aston Villa under their new managers. Aston Villa are unbeaten under Steve Bruce but does Nick agree that they were unlucky to only draw against Brighton? Rotherham are at the bottom of the table, but who will join them in the relegation zone? Ian Holloway's return to QPR is also discussed. Should he be a pundit or a manager in terms of entertainment?
Tim Sherwood is the Director of Football at League One side Swindon Town, but it appears he may be having more influence in taking team talks. Manager Luke Williams seems happy to share responsibilities, but do we think that this is right? Bury manager David Flitcroft has left the club after a poor run of form which sees the club just above the relegation zone, and is the league starting to take shape with top three sides Bolton, Scunthorpe and Sheffield United all winning their last two games? And Steven Gerrard does not appear in line for the MK Dons job after talks. But would it have been the best career move for him?
In League Two, Colchester striker Kurtis Guthrie gave an interview in which he called his side a shambles, and that he's not there for a relegation battle. Colchester then went on to win their next 3 for their first win 10. Plymouth have lost their last two games after a 14 game unbeaten run. Is this the start of a downward spiral or is it just a blip? We look at the sacking of Alberto Cavasin, who leaves Leyton Orient only out of the relegation zone on goal difference.
We finish the show by reviewing last week's FA Cup 1st Round Replays. There were three notable Non-League winners in Brackley Town, Solihull Moors and Eastleigh. We then look at the 2nd Round, with the three games to be televised announced. Curzon Ashton vs AFC Wimbledon is the top pick.
